I created this blog in order to participate in the National Novel Writing Month challenge which begins on 1 Nov. 2011 and ends on 30 Nov. 2011. This is my second blog, as the other one, Dogwood Plantation, is the one I use for Post-A-Week essays, movie reviews, poetry and whatever else comes to mind. In fact, if you go to that blog, you'll find a more complete biography. This "about to be written novel," still without a firm title, is my third book, but I have been published over the years, starting in 1971. I hope you enjoy what you read, but always feel free to post a comment to me.
