It's Almost December

Tomorrow is December 1st. So hard to believe. I've got a lot of things going on in December.

For starters, I anticipate spending some quality time in the studio this December. Yes, I'm gearing up for more painting.

Then there is the new gear. I'm going to try to order myself a spiffy new Mac computer, for my home, and finally (finally!) fix the hard drive business that is killing me. Oh, how I hate the hard drive issues I'm having. I can't wait to upgrade to some giant honkingly large RAID device and just put everything all in one place again.

If that were not enough, it's also the end of the year, so there's all the usual holiday party and end of the year type stuff to do.

Lastly, one thing about December that's always a favorite. As I post this today, I have actually won my little yearly competition. Yes, it's true, you read it here first (and, heh, probably last too) I have just won NaBloPoMo or National Blog Posting Month for the month of November. This year, I did it in "real time" meaning I didn't even schedule any posts, just did one a day for the month. And I wrote and wrote a lot too. OK, so maybe some days were not as good as others, but I honestly think there is some quality in there. And I honestly think I have the itch to write some more. Yes, as we face December, I do feel like I'm wanting to write a bit more, to maybe do more with my writing, to paint a lot more, and even to get out and take pictures of the beautiful autumn we are now experiencing here in Austin.

December indeed.

Until next time...

have you thought of combining your blogs into a how to book or submit to photo magazines?

My work has already appeared in several photo magazines, so yes I have thought about it. As far as the how-to book, it's kind of difficult at this point to do anything with such a big, unruly blog. This is more of my fun side anyway, so I probably won't combine it although I'm not totally against that idea. (With over 10 years of posts, it would just be a heck of a lot of work and quite messy for anyone to edit!)
