Prioritizing

Hello. Thanks for stopping by.

I'm certain you've noticed that I've struggled to get new stories posted for your reading pleasure.

The truth is, I've been working on a very time sensitive writing project that has consumed all of my free time. My new work is titled (working title) Omega Point 2012, and is a fictional Sci-Fi story that revolves around the Maya and their prophecy that the world will end in 2012.

Your patience is appreciated. I'm very close to being finished. As of today, I have 175 typed pages, 90,000 words, 25 chapters, and about 20,000 words to go. I can have it finished by October if I really bear down. In order for me to do that, I've had to cut out all my blogging activities.

Thanks for understanding, and I'll return to action soon--I hope!

Thanks, All.

I'm suspicious that's not Dave...

Understood. Happy trails!

2012...hmmm...summer Olympics that year...is that part of the storyline? That would make it exciting since everyone loves the Olympics, but I'm sure you were already taking that into serious consideration.

Sounds very interesting!

Am I still being written in as the highly decorated USMC General who single-handedly saves the world from the brink of chaos, and with only a handful of survivors left, gets paired up with Megan Fox to repopulate the entire planet?

Travis said...

Well, duh!

Who else would we trust to re-populate the Earth than a California native?

wow! how exciting!! i can't wait till you're finished! :) and, since i'm reading this in october, i'm wondering how you're doing with it?

Travis said...

Thanks for asking. I'm doing pretty well for the most part. I'm at page 208, approx 110,000 words. I anticipate that I'll have it finished in another 10,000 words, which shouldn't take very long. My biggest challenge is that I've been plagued with kidney stone issues for the entire month of October, which caused me to miss my deadline. Who knows? Maybe my drug induced state will make a more interesting finish than I anticipated!

sharilyn said...

oh man! i'm so sorry to hear about the kidney stones!! i'm an every-10-yrs kidney stoner (had them three times now), so i KNOW the pain!! i'll be praying for you for sure!! (do you usually pass yours on your own?) my prayers for you...

Travis said...

This one is too big. I've endured a stint until they can laser it later this month...

Thanks for the prayers!

GIL said...

is one of my biggest fears...I hope it gets resloved soon Bro.
