Weird Wednesday: NaNoWriMo/Cartoons

I woke up this morning and realized that I had not fully prepared my newsletter for today, or my post. Why am I telling you this? Probably because I am obsessed with word count (not really) during NaNoWriMo. I also realized that I missed posting my Miniscules cartoon to Instagram. Actually, I missed drawing itContinue reading “Weird Wednesday: NaNoWriMo/Cartoons”

Weird Wednesday: Cartoons/NaNoWriMo

I realized that my update could be a bit misleading. One reader may have thought that it was a previous day’s total (not monthly) which would be good for word count, but the coffee/beverage intake is quite alarming. So, here are the monthly totals: NaNoWriMo Totals to Date: 6400 words, 10 cups of coffee, oneContinue reading “Weird Wednesday: Cartoons/NaNoWriMo”

Weird Wednesday: Blast from the (not so distant) Past – Part 2

Six months ago, it was the beginning of spring. The sun was tracing the same route across the sky, yet now, the temperature and wind feels like an ending, rather than a rebirth. The 19 degrees (Celsius), which felt absolutely balmy now, has a chill to it. The wind seems to be a harbinger ofContinue reading “Weird Wednesday: Blast from the (not so distant) Past – Part 2”

Weird Wednesday: Blast from the (not so distant) Past

I heard yesterday that Canadian comedian Norm MacDonald had passed away. I remember him on Saturday Night Live as host of Weekend Update and as Burt Reynolds on Celebrity Jeopardy. He had a weirdness to his talent and his delivery was like he didn’t care if anyone shared his sense of humor. Probably was what got himContinue reading “Weird Wednesday: Blast from the (not so distant) Past”
