Old Patriot's Pen

Personal pontifications of an old geezer born 200 years too late.

I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

Let's make a deal!

I've entered the NaNoWriMo challenge to write a 50,000 word novel in thirty days. The deadline is November 30th. I've got my current production listed on my sidebar, for everyone to see where I am. I usually don't show any of my work until it's done, but I need some help. I'd like to get two or three people to read my raw work, and to let me know when there are any glaring errors. I've already caught three or four, so I know I'm making them. In exchange, I'll allow my readers to see EVERYTHING I use in developing and writing a novel - all the warts and ugly pieces that I use to create a coherent book, but that are hidden from the average reader. If anyone's interested, just drop me a quick email with READER in the subject line. There's no pay, and there's no prizes, just the chance to get an 'inside glimpse' of how one writer's warped and twisted mind works.
