Creative writing and interesting pursuits

Past the halfway point

As of Tuesday night, I was at 28,000+ words for my novel Rusted Halo. That is over halfway through the whole NaNoWriMo project. I’m feeling pretty good about it as a whole, and I think the detail and plot are very strong. The theme and concepts might not be appealing to everyone, but I beleive its a great read regardless.

Of course with the writing, I have been neglecting my poor video games. Halo 2 goes completely unplayed, whereas Half Life 2 has only received about 10 minutes of my time. Sorry guys. I’ll get to you eventually.

Writing like crazy

I broke the 12,000 word count this Sunday. I’m really starting to like the story I’m writing, and looking forward to the next batch of content that’s coming up. The next chapter is going to be a turning point for the protagonist, and is something I’ve been planning since the beginning. We’ll have to see if I like him after I write the chapter…

In other news, I bought a old art nouveau poster for my home office. It’s the standard Le Chat Noir by Theophile-Alexandre Steinlen. It makes the room look so much bigger, the ceiling is vaulted, and I can see getting more poster prints mounted along side of it in the future.

Rusted Halo – A Novel in 30 days

Well Halloween was a blast. We should have pictures and video to share of our Halloween maze in the coming days. I definitely scared a whole lot of kids and their parents. Stay tuned.

Today I started out on writing my novel. The goal is to complete a 50,000 word novel by the end of November. This idea comes via Will and is part of the NaNoWriMo competition that happens every November. My novel Rusted Halo is about the life of a bitter old warrior. I’m happy with the 3300+ words I’ve written so far. I just hope people actually get around to reading it.
