Stephen King

"the real difference [between J.K. Rowling and Meyer] is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer, and Stephenie Meyer can't write worth a darn. She's not very good."

Ohhhh Edward....:P

Wrestlemania 26

John Morrison states it well when he said , "Who's champion now? Cena? Ugh. Boring." Perhaps now, Morrison will get the right push he needs instead of the wrongful squash he was delivered at Wrestlemania 26. Overall, the show was boring. It was 4 hours of rushed good matches and slow boring matches. The taker and HBK match was good but not as good as 25. Oh well...

How big a deal? Ask Joe Biden

This is an article from AP - How big a deal? Ask Joe Biden

WASHINGTON – Leave it to Vice President Joe Biden to add a little, ahem, flair to the signing of a health care bill affecting millions of people.

"This is a big f------ deal," Biden told President Barack Obama after introducing him at Tuesday's ceremony at the White House.

Biden appeared to be offering that perspective to Obama privately, but his remark was captured on audio and video.

The episode quickly got buzz on the Internet.

Biden has a reputation of verbal slips, and he knows it.

The White House response to this one? Embrace it.

"And yes Mr. Vice President, you're right," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said in a post, or "tweet," on Twitter, the social networking site.

Here is the video on youtube...LOL

Betty White just seems to be a real nice lady.  The SNL episode that she will host on May 8th should be really funny.

Novel Math

Total word count as of this afternoon for Apolo Drakuvich : 23,052

I went through each chapter's word counts and I have decided which chapters needed some extra wordage which adds up to about 6,000 words.  If I can do this then I will be able to get to about 30,000 total words for the novel. 

I really want to finish the first draft of this novel by the end of the month and if I work really hard at it, I should be able to do it. 

I was aiming for around 30,000 originally but that is considered a short novel or novella, which isn't a bad thing.  But to be considered a novel it needs to be around 50,000.  My plan is to boost up the chapters and get to the 30,000 word point.  Then I will go from there and decide what I need to add.  I will feel a lot better once I hit that 30,000 mark.

weekend writing

I wrote about a thousand words over the weekend.  I really like the spreadsheet that I created.  It has really helped organize the chapters a little better.

Another Monday...I'll have some time off from work next week and I am looking forward to that.  :)

Novel update

Apolo Drakuvich word count: 19,870

I'm past the honeymoon stage (10,000 words) and now I'm at a decent point in the novel.  I wrote a chapter that I didn't particulary want to write or finish and that has thrown me off, but I'm not worried about it.  I put all of my chapters and word counts into a spreadsheet so now things are a little bit more organized.  Now, I just need to keep writing and stop worrying about what I am writing.  I'll revise and edit later...I really need to wrap up the first is time....

Time to get my butt into gear.
