JimmyDimples:iconjimmydimples:
Well, with the new status updates in the "New" dA page... is this Shoutbox thing obsolete?

Forgot this shoutbox device even existed.

Been about a year and a half since anyone posted anything here... folks, is anyone looking at the Shoutbox, or has Twitter made it redundant?

If anyone actually reads the Shoutbox, I haven't fallen off the edge of the earth. Trying to get myself to sit and post to the Journal. :work:

Sitting pretty in Hong Kong's YWCA Anne Black House, in case anyone's reading this thing. Wi-fi was a bear to start.

Sorry this particular thing is a day late and a dollar short.  But here it is on the sixteenth.  This month's...

:skull: :bulletblack: :bulletred: JIMMYOMETER: :bulletyellow: :bulletgreen: :D

:bulletgreen:  "I Voted" stickers
:bulletgreen:  The 2014 midterm election results
:bulletgreen:  Homestar Runner -- the Return
:bulletgreen:  Cheerwine
:bulletgreen:  ROLL FIZZLEBEEF!

:bulletyellow:  Splitting infinitives
:bulletyellow:  Hershey's Mr. Goodbar
:bulletyellow:  Tying down pumpkins
:bulletyellow:  My lack of cable or satellite TV
:bulletorange:  Collecting spores
:bulletred:  Marketed "superfoods"
:bulletred:  dA's Activity widget
:bulletred:  Locking yourself out of your apartment
:bulletred:  Christmas decor shoving Thanksgiving out of the picture
:bulletred:  Windows Updates in the middle of your work
:bulletred:  Biting your own lip
:bulletred:  Stomach upset
:bulletblack:  Pre-workout and pre-NaNoWriMo writing inertia
:bulletblack:  Gender questioning
:bulletblack:  DIY sex changes
:bulletblack:  Being in Obama's shoes right now
:bulletblack:  Shoehorning "science" into the conscience's compartment
:bulletblack:  Lena Dunham

Okay, admittedly, there's a lot more in the red and black than I appreciate.  I'm afraid it matches the mood I'm in right now.

I'm currently struggling with this month's NaNoWriMo.  I'm way behind  I should be halfway done with 25,000 words written, and I haven't even cracked 20,000 yet.  True, I've been gradually playing catch-up, but I'm not so sure if I'm going to make it.  As always, if I don't it won't be because I didn't try.

If you're curious, this year I'm writing Propelled, my first try at a sci-fi novel.  In this one, Peter Brightman gets rejected by the Free Planets Starship Fleet recruiters because he's too shrimpy and has a bad blood type.  Big discouragement, because he want to join the war effort against the Galactic Combine.  But, a dear friend connects him with a starship factory, and he gets a job on a line assembling propulsion drives for the engines.

After an unpleasant incident with a forewoman, he installs multiple drives in one engine unit, and in the process creates a new system that will create a faster, speedier vessel for the Fleet.  And with the new design comes sabotage, an assault from space, an attempted seduction, and other various headaches for Peter.

If you want to keep tabs, here's the link to how I'm doing:  nanowrimo.org/participants/jim…

Prayers that I get it done in time to win the challenge, and do it right, would be deeply appreciated, Tru Believaz.

No, I haven't forgotten about this month's Jimmyometer, folks.  I've just fallen behind with NaNoWriMo. Will get on it a little later this afternoon, Lord willing.
Friendly reminder, fellow Americans.  If you haven't done so earlier... then today...

GET OFF YOUR DUFF AND VOTE.
Currently working on my new NaNoWriMo novel:  "Propelled."  50,000 words in thirty days.  My November's going to be pretty eventful, though.
