NaNoWriMo 2010 Results

‘Way back in the beginning of November I posted that I’d be participating once again in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) once again. The object of the exercise, to refresh your memory, is to pound out a 50,000 word novel in the space of a month. Just because.

The fact that I’m just now revealing how I did should be your first clue. Yes, I’m a terrible procrastinator, which is one reason that, once again, I failed to make the leap to Novelist. I did set a personal record – 25,869 words – but the astute mathematical mind will note that this is nowhere near the necessary 50,000 words.

Ah, well. Next year.

Fantasy Football – Final Results

Well, it’s all over. Time to pack up the pads and the cheat sheets, put the field striper and mock drafts into storage, and delete the bookmarks from your Favorites. Fantasy Football is done for the year, much like my beloved Cleveland Browns and their latest former coach, Eric Mangini. As I’ve been saying for over 15 years, just wait until next year!
