Impossopotamus is Dead, Long Live Impossopotamus!

At 10 P.M. the Impossopotamus officially expired.

That’s when I validated my word count at the National Novel Writing Month. I got 165,904, officially! I worked on two novels in that time. (No, I didn’t finish either one; your point is?) Now all I gotta do is edit it all down to about 80,000 Real […]

Oops, I Missed; Or, the Big One That Got Away (For Now)

This is a story of grief and woe. Contrary to other reports, it has nothing to do with indolence, lethargy or hebetude. (Some people automatically assign the worst motives to others, just because they slept in until 0900, then took a long soak in the hot tub, then went out to lunch, and finished with […]

It's Satuday, and Impossopotamus is On Death Watch

I’ve had it to here with leftovers, so I’m hunting fresh game. One big Impossopotamus, to be exact. I didn’t bag him today, but I think I wounded him. Maybe, just maybe, if I have a good day tomorrow I’ll be able to skin him out, stuff him and hang him on my wall! We’ll […]

Can You Get Swine Flu From Being a Pig at the Thanksgiving Table?

I felt bad all day. I’m sure it couldn’t be due to overeating on Thanksgiving like a hungry pig at a trough of fresh acorns. Some of my nephews have had the swine H1N1 influenza, but that was weeks ago; they can’t still be infectious, can they? Not that I’m paranoid or anything, you […]

Gobble, Gobble! The Big Feast Day is Finally Here…

Question: Which side of the turkey has the most feathers?

Don’t think about it too much, now; you might get a painful brain sprain. You wouldn’t want me to have that on my conscience during the Holidays, would you? Good. Besides, the answer’s pretty obvious. (I hope.)

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, […]

On This Day in History, Absolutely Nothing Happened (On My Fiction)

Some days, I should have stood in bed. I got started early enough, and three hours later I had exactly two sentences drafted. Which I summarily edited down to zero. Man, when the Muses boycott, it Really Hurts! Like having your ankle chewed on by a Poodle with a Mohawk. I finally made a […]

Gang of Four Launches Blockbuster Technical Book Writing Project

That’s Me on the Right, the Handsome One Giving Instructions

Today I set aside my NaNoWriMo aspirations (mostly) and met with three other learned scholars and businessmen. (Actually it was just Dr. C, the other Dr. C, and the other other Dr. C, and me. But it sounds so much more sophisticated the […]

Short Update on NaNoWriMo

It’s way past my bedtime (it’s always past my bedtime, these days), and I’ve written every word I possibly can today. No time left for writing a big post; just a quick NaNoWriMo Scorecard and then off to Nod:

Words Today: 12,010; Total Words, 146,400; Impossopotamus Completion, 88.7%; Please, oh please, tell me it’s all downhill […]
