NaNoWriMo Report Card 2008

Always the most popular download from this website every November, this is my version of the original report card (created by Erik Benson) with a few enhancements: it's been updated to keep all data entry in one place on the page, carry a few more statistics than the original, and display most common stats on the first page (instead of the progress graph). It also uses a minimum goal for tomorrow so even if you get ahead it encourages you to stay ahead at the same rate instead of letting you slack. Enjoy!

I have updated the dates for 2008 and please, leave me a comment if you find any problems with the functions or anything!

Poetry Work In Progress: Title TBD

Possibly to be called Images, or something similar, I am currently working on my next collection of poems. I do have various poems from a previous unfinished collection (which was tentatively titled Nothing) which may make an appearance in this book. My goal with these poems, though it may change thematically as the poems progress, is to take relatively simple concepts, ideas, thoughts, situations, or objects and describe them almost visually but rarely naming them.

We'll see how it works out.

It is 2008, and that means time to give the website the "once every couple of years" kick in the teeth. Bear with me as I go through the process of updating the site to focus even more on my writing. In addition, I'll be making the site available via RSS feed, which should hopefully help anyone who cares to keep up with it.
