Time for the news as I see it. We start with pro sports and the New England Patriots. The Pats hosted division rival Miami Dolphins on Thursday night football last evening and proceeded to destroy their opponent in every aspect of the game, winning 36-7. The Patriots have injury issues on the offensive line that have hindered peak offensive performance, which is scary to suggest for a team that scored 36. If the Pats can stay away from key injuries to players like Brady, Gronk, and the like - it's hard to think the team won't be playing deep in the playoffs and contending for yet another Super Bowl.
Tom Brady is playing like an MVP - so far throwing for 2410 yards with 20 TDs and only one interception in seven games. Guess the league shouldn't have angered him with Deflategate. 2015 is starting to look like a revenge tour.
In book news, it's almost time for NaNoWriMo - National Novel Writing Month - that yearly sprint where writers from around the world attempt to produce 50k word novels in 30 days. I've 'won' this twice (finishing said 50k words in the allotted time) and will attempt it yet again this year. The novel I will write is a reprise of one of my first works, Preface to a Suicide.
I feel the need to clarify a few things as many of my long time readers are familiar with (and some have read) Preface. As many of you know, the ELLA book is not the 'first' in the timeline of my fictional world. In fact, ELLA is approximately 8 books into the timeline. However, as it was released first, I will now revise and re-write the entirety of the story to match the details as published in the ELLA book.
To be clear, I'm not 'cheating' to start NaNoWriMo - this is no 'edit' of an older novel. I am going to completely re-envision the novel to fit the altered facts of the world as published in ELLA. To those that have read Preface, you won't recognize much in the new book. Only a few basic facts will remain. I do hope all the readers that have stayed with me for years will enjoy the new vision for Preface and I can't wait to share samples of the story with you.
It's time to get writing.
