Well, I was going to write a cheery post about where we've been and what we've been doing and why we haven't been posting, but . . .

That's not gonna happen.

Because I just had to buy my text books for the next semester of college,

and they cost an excess of $500.

 Gah. Hah. Gack. Hack. Schreeeech. 

That's the sound I, my father and my bank account made.


I haven't been posting because I have been participating in NaNoWriMo July Edition with some of my friends from high school and have been diligently writing my 1,667 words a day to reach my goal. After work and that there is not much energy left over for blogging. By then I mostly want to sit around and watch bad (but oh so amusing) TV shows. By the way, I have 30,000 words left to go in the month of July.

And I don't know where Susan is.

I assume she's in a hole somewhere, madly editing her manuscript. Possibly with her family lowering food in a basket to her.

Or, rather, letting her pull it up. Because Susan lives in a tower.


Stay tuned for the next installment of the Blog Epic. You may expect it upon the 'morrow.


  1. Buying used is the way to go. is a cheap way to get textbooks, all you need on there is the ISBN and you should be able to find all your books. Unless, of course, you don't like buying used books, some of mine I've bought new because I like to keep them around (I'm a little nerdy like that;).

    1. I buy them ALL used. The ones I don't rent, that is.

    2. Then my problem is transporting a gazillion pounds of books across the country.

  2. Yes, college books are evil. :(

    I'm looking at doing August NaNo! Congrats on writing, and keep plugging away. You can do it!
