Just want to take a moment to say hello. Especially to the long-lost Phantom Angie. It’s an inside joke, so bear with me. The stats system here says that someone in Sparta, New Jersey occasionally comes to the blog, and I’m just assuming that it’s you. Still checking in on me after all these years? Well, I miss you too, just FYI.
I’ve been thinking about getting back into writing lately. A post regarding my disappointment in the direction of the Star Wars franchise is brewing in my head, and I intend to post it here soon. It all started because I run Fantasy Survivor and Fantasy Big Brother leagues where I write recaps of episodes after they are broadcast every week. One of the women in the league with us keeps telling me that I should write for a living. Maybe I should?
Anyway, she has challenged me to write an at least 50,000-word novel during the month of November via the https://nanowrimo.org/ website. November is apparently the National Novel Writing Month. I did not know that. I’m going to give it a go and see how it works out. Between now and then, I’m going to try to get back into writing stuff on here as well.
Here is a quick update. I live in Charlotte now, which is much closer to where my brother and his family lives (they live close to Lake Norman in Denver, NC), as well as most of my family. I thought I would miss Atlanta, but I haven’t missed it for a moment. The older I got, the harder it was to be away from family all the time since I have no family in Georgia at all. When Turner Broadcasting outsourced my department to a company in Romania in early 2015, my severance package paid me through the end of July of 2015. Therefore, I took that time to move to Charlotte to be closer to everyone and I haven’t looked back.
I’m working at Microsoft now as they have a campus here in Charlotte. I enjoy my job as it involves a lot of writing, but it would be awesome to be able to write entertainment for a living. Be my own boss and all that jazz. We’ll see how it works out.
Anyway, it’s getting late and it’s about time for bed. A new work week is looming! I’m going to try to post more stuff here starting now. Keep your eyes peeled, everyone, especially you, Phantom Angie!
Ang: Leave me a comment here so we can catch up. We can send each other an email or something. Take care!
Until next time, have a great week!
