Amazing. Just think. Fourteen years ago, I began to write seriously. This literally accounts for half of my life. One. Half. And this experience has taken me through every imaginable avenue in the metropolis of writing.
And I loved every single second of it!
Four years ago, I made a deal with my wife, a deal akin to the stories of Dean Koontz or James Dashner: Land a contract or get published by age 30 ... or get a real job.
I'm 29 today. Goal unreached. It's crunch year, folks!
If the universe is willing, I'll have two new novels written before this time next year. Let's do this!
Oh! And you know what would make a great birthday present? 400 followers. The sooner that number is reached, the sooner I can launch my next giveaway!

The UVU Book Academy was great fun! Not only did I get to attend a few fabulous classes, but I got tapped on the shoulder by none other than the famous Donna Weaver!
(I have demon-eye pics to prove it!)
Also in attendance was Tasha Seegmiller, Elana Johnson, and many, many more! It was awesome to be there for my first time. I'll see you all again next year!

Between the Platform Building Campaign, The Rule of 3 Blogfest, and learning to navigate Twitter, my time for blogging the way I'd normally like to doesn't exist anymore! Not to worry, my friends. Once October is past, some level of normalcy will find its way back.

Thank you all for checking out inkPageant.com over the weekend and for your participation. We're receiving a healthy number of hits daily (which is great for a new site). We would love to review more links. The more links, the better. Why? Because links are yummy!
It should be known that my stock in inkPageant is just a moderator, tester, and a general supporter. Credit for its creation lies with Darren and LaChelle Hansen.

Update: Got a few words in on both stories over the weekend, as well as some much needed home repair work. Went to Ikea. Got a collection of Billy bookcases that'll go great with my corner writing nook area.
Now that I have a new prompt for the next Rule of 3, I better get to work on drafting the next segment. Check back tomorrow for Part 2 of Lady In Wanting.
I'm David, and nature gave me a car wash!
