Forward/Author's Note....

The upcoming NaNoWriMo combined with a desire to finally, completely purge this very silly idea from my brain, has led me to create this blog as a container for the short novel "Bruce Napoleon, Vampire Veterinarian". While I'm not really going to speculate what this novel will actually be about, or even that I'll finish it, or that it will be of some pre-determined length, it would be cool to actually finish something like this, even within the brutal schedule of one month of writing.

What is "Bruce Napoleon" about, you ask? It's the heart warming story about a small animal veterinarian, who helps keep the rural counties furry denizens healthy and happy. This is not your average vampire story, all scar, sex and leather obsessed. Bruce drives a Volvo, likes his cat, Buttons, and is just trying to get by in a world rapidly coming to terms with the undead among them.

What I have going for me is the fact that I have at least one long flight planned during this time, so that will give me some concentrated writing time. I actually don't have much trouble babbling on, when the mood suits me and when I have keyboard in hand (and headphones on ears), so there isn't a lot of reasons that I won't be able to do it. Except that is, my job, my relationship with my wife and daughter, my other writing, my class, and my friends. Anyhow, we'll see what happens.

In anticipation of this, I've been writing a bit more each day on my regular blog, Ego Food, sort of like training before a marathon. I'm at or around 1k words a day. Today I actually need to write more than that as I have an article due for a website that I often write for.

I will start this novel the 1st of November, 2004. I hope you don't think it completely sucks.*

Start Reading!

*Yes, that was a pun. I assure you that it isn't my intention to write 50,000 words dotted with puns.
