Remembering October

October was an easy month to sum up:

(fiction) Words written: 0
Rejections: 0
Acceptances: 1

See? Easy. The reason I wrote nothing is the same reason why I have opted to not participate in Nano this year. Some of you may recall me mentioning a movie website I maintained. Well, that site got hacked and that disaster coupled with my hard drive crash from early in the year meant that I lost quite a bit of material. Thus, I have been working to update all those older movie reviews in a new format. This means writing about 3k (on average) words each for the 44 reviews I had on there. That is what I've been working on and what I will be working on for the rest of the year. This blog may be in run silent, run deep mode until January, but I'll pop up from time to time.

I hope Nano is going good for those giving it a go!

NaNo is plodding along, with some catch-up time required on the weekend. Sorry that you lost all the movie stuff. Good luck with setting it all up again.

Sorry about the hacking, hope the rewrites go smoothly. Congrats on the acceptance.

hackers deserve to be pulled by their testicles by a Harley on a gravel road. Just saying.

Of all the sites to hack. Seriously.

Good luck putting it back together, and give us updates on the progress.

Yikes, that sounds like a lot of work! You'll probably outstrip all the nano wordcounts just rewriting the reviews. I hope it goes well!

Hackers piss me right off. It's just so mean spirited : P
