Changes & A Writing Update

I am finally feeling better, and just in time. It’s my first day of school. I have decided to go back to college and get another bachelors degree. There are a lot more jobs in my area for someone with an IT degree than there are for someone with an Applied History degree.

So I am taking online classes full time through Bellevue University, with the college credits I already have it will take me about a year to get a new degree, with two babies at home I thought this was the perfect time to spend a little more time at home.

Last semester I took a prerequisite class while I was trying to decide if I wanted to go back to school. Online classes were a little different than I remembered. Anyway I thought I would tell everybody why my blog posts and writing have slowed down a bit, and will probably slow down a bit more. I will keep writing, but homework will come first.

My writing has been going pretty well. The novel I am working on is coming along nicely. Dynasties and Demagogues actually did help. It put into words some concepts I had been mulling over. I am not sure it would be all that helpful to most people but it really did help me.

The one thing I am a little worried about in my novel now is that my character is too…proficient for lack of a better word. I can see a rewrite in my future, but for now I finished three chapters in the last three weeks, though I am not sure I want to count last week, I was so sick I did not write at all.

Hey all

I decided to write a blog today because it has been nearly a month since I wrote one. I have just been kind of busy. Right now I am fighting off a potent flu virus so instead of writing something interesting I will leave with this youtube video of Disney's Adentures of the Gummi Bears, it was a childhood stapple of mine and I just found it on youtube. I always feel a little nostolgic when I am sick and I actually sat down and watched four episodes before I realized that I was a grown man sitting on my couch watching over twenty year old cartoons.
