I am a few days late on this post. NaNoWriMo started November 1. I would like to say “Go get ’em writers.”

To the folks standing on the outside looking in, “You can do this. Writing is letting the emotions and story in your soul out in a physical manifesation.”

To all of you I wish you the very best. May your words come fast and furious, your plots ride dragons into battle and your fingers not cramp.

Cheers and Happy NaNo. Now go put your fingers to writing. james

October Dreamin’

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The days are cooling and the leaves are turning rich reds, golds and oranges. Every tree a uniquely beautiful sunset. Each leaf looks to have been masterfully painted. Although it hasn’t cooled off enough here for the more dramtic colors. The mountains are surely putting on a show. 

Cheers, james

Moon light, moon bright


Moon light, moon bright, I wish upon your light so bright. Guide me in your heavenly way. Make me strong and give my words flight.

Autumn moon, a cool breeze, and a chilly night. Could you ask for better October weather? I can’t, this is my favorite time of year. Since I am an October baby it makes sense. I feel so alive, renewed, in harmony with the world around me. Anyway thought I would share a beautiful Eastern North Carolina moon. Cheers, james
