November 1st is tomorrow, and tomorrow I embark on my novel writing journey. Again. Feel free to follow along and check my word count on my NaNoWriMo page. Apparently I need to write at least 1667 words a day to stay on track for the goal of 50,000. I ran into a very annoying bug…

I survived my first bachelor party this weekend in Vegas for my old high school friend Patrick. There wasn’t nearly as much drinking as I was expecting, but I did play my first game of beer pong and it’s pretty damn fun. My worthless teammates couldn’t make the balls in if their lives depended on…
