35007-29397=5610

Well, I'm about 75% back and ready to hit it again...though 5610 words seems a bit much, I think I'm still in the race. Real quick like, here is a run down re: my lack of writing and lack of blogging.

Monday...Max (3) becomes sick and shows signs of becoming REALLY sick

Tuesday...I wake up to discover that Max has crawled into bed and I am staring a runny-nosed "spreader" right in the face. All day I feel sluggish and begin coughing during University lectures.

Wednesday...I leave work at 1:00 and come home to discover I have a temperature of 103! I sleep...I take three hits of Niquil...it does not kick in until 4:00am

Thursday...Life is a fog...I am in dreamland and bouncing through a cloud like-wait...I'm in the middle of a lecture on the proper use of a china marker as it relates to ink and charcoal...must grasp hold of reality...go home...sleep...no medicine...but wait...Zack (5) is sick...I end up staying up until 2:30 with him and then my beautiful wife takes over so I can sleep...sleep, which finally comes after 4:30, lasts until 7:00 at which time I...

Friday...get up and go to work...finally after all is said and done and everyone is tucked away at 9:00, I post this and prepare to get back on track...

Up, down, up, down...

Things have been bouncing all around with FIRST GATE here...but the latest writing seems to be some of my best...it is really exciting to be at the halfway point in the challenge and be so close to being on target.
Day.......…….Sunday 16
scheduled count...26,672
Actual count........26,108
Plus or minus.……-564
The story is becoming even more exciting and though I know the last act...or at least the last scene, the recent turn of events has left me wondering how I am ever going to resolve everything. Truly an exciting time for me and my characters. I am working on some Photoshop artwork for it and should have it ready soon.

In other news, I have yet to post comments on MATRIX REVOLUTIONS...let's just say for now that I really liked it and there will be more in depth analysis after the Nov. Challenge is over. However, I feel that I must make a comment about Cartoon Networks STAR WARS CLONE WARS micro series...I love anything that G.T. does, from Dexter's Lab to samurai Jack. However, I was so disappointed by Star Wars that I was ready to stop watching the entire "micro Series" once I realized what MICRO meant...it means that each episode is only about 3 minutes long...Zack and I were both very upset when we realized what was up...however, we watched the first 5 episodes back to back, having recorded them sequentially, and we both loved it...so...if you have not seen them yet, maybe it would be best to wait for the series to be released on DVD and watch it all then...it really is quite entertaining!
