I be a Novel Writing Mo Fo!

By Mark Connolly
Editor, Dallas Bureau

Official NaNoWriMo 2004 Winner!

Yes, it is true. I have written 50,096 words. However, my opus is not yet completed. I have probably another one or two k worth to write to get to the end.

So, this will end up being about 53,000 words, or so.

It's been... interesting. Frankly, I wondered if I would be able to do it. That is until the first 2000 words of pure literary tripe oozed from my fingers like ripe bananas. Or something. Then I knew I had the gift. Er, curse. You know, that muse thing, ragged little bitch that she was scrabbling over my shoulder.

Anyway, I shall now embark on my next project: Clean up my novel, now titled
At the Sign of the Screaming Monkey's Head - Sylk:Beginnings
and see how many rejection slips I can generate.

Until whenever, fb

and after polishing "--Beginnings", might there be more, to enlighten re: Sylk's adventures, which led him to showing up At The Sign of The Screaming Monkey?

Been really busy. Company I work for was sold by the family that owned it, and bought by an investment group. I was moved from Loss Prevention back into Human Racehorses.

Been working lots of hours, messing with my novel, and trying to sleep.

Thanks for asking! fb
