On Jan 2 of this year, I started blogging. I posted on blogger and here. Because of the wonderful encouragement everyone gave me, I continued woodworking and blogging. Now I can cut dovetails by hand, and they look fair. I am able to make tiny boxes. I am also not afraid to try more and more difficult projects. I also descovered a second love. Of course, I mean that sexy babe writing.
I haven’t been doing as much woodworking the last month, mostly because I picked up a lot of holiday hours, and just didn’t have time to make sawdust and write. So I have been working on my 2nd novel, Henry Wood: Time and Again. There are 34 chapters up now, totally around 36,000 words. I only need 14,000 more to reach the 50K novel plateau, but I will likely write 30-40 more, as the story is a long ways from setteled. I hope, those who follow it, are enjoying the tale.
Tonight, I wrote a year in review piece, which is much like what I just wrote above, though with a bunch more silliness.
