Slightly new direction for this blog

It has been a long time since I have posted anything to any of my blogs. So here it is, this one will still contain a lot of my opinions and also bits and pieces of my life. You would think that having two teenage boys there would be a lot to write about, it just seems to be mundane to me. I do promise to try to update this more often than I have with any of the others. I am also getting back into writing my novel that I started last November, I will also be doing the NaNoWriMo again this year. I encourage any and all to take the challenge of writing this November. It is a great deal of fun and you might surprise your self.

With that said, if anyone does decide to take the challenge I would encourage you to read Stephen King's no "On Writing". It is a very good book on how to write, whether you want to write fiction or non-fiction. This blog will be part of the practice necessary to get better at writing. I have set a goal for writing fifteen hundred words each day, that does not include what I will be writing here. Wish me luck.

What's going on at the home front. Kyle has been talking to a Navy recruiter and even took tests today, he got an 84 on them, which is very good. Gregory finished summer school, he took art, which he enjoyed. He made some really terrific drawings and other things. I can't really call them sculptures, they are 3-d objects. I am very proud of both of my boys. Talena, Mark and the girls are doing good. Both Gynesis and Lavieya are getting bigger. It is so fun to see their little faces light up when I walk into the room.

Hope everyone enjoys this and will enjoy the story as it unfolds. Talk to you all soon.

Every once in a while I check out your blog sites to see if you have gotten back to them. Today I was pleasantly surprised to find that you have. I do enjoy reading the things you write, so I was particularly excited to learn that in November you will get back to your novel. I suspected that you might do that. I can hardly wait for the next installment.

I'm sure the lads will find just the right things for them to do. We both know that they will probably try a number of things before settling into a career that fulfills them. I am surprised that Kyle is considering the Navy. I read something recently that people who live in arid areas tend to join the Navy. Something to do with getting away from the dry heat.

I can understand why the young girls beam when you enter the room. You have that magical energy about you that lets them know they are adored by you.

I'll check in more frequently now that I know you are getting back to writing.
