Blog Up And Running Again

Most of yesterday was not spent on outlining, writing, or revising. Or even publishing.

It was spent cleaning up the site after another Russian Mob hack inserting redirects into every page. Seriously, will someone go out and kill these people? They are nothing but vermin using up oxygen on this planet.

It will take time for the Google-alerts to disappear, but that should happen in the next few days. In the meantime, it’s time to turn the focus on more productive things. Like starting the novel I should have written in June. The writing starts tomorrow (July 1st) for the July Nano. Maybe joining in with a Nano will help the words start to flow.

I hope everyone else had a better month of writing in June than I did! Now I’m going to see if I can figure out what settings I used for the progress bars. 😀

Short Story Challenge Update – Story #14

As I suspected, I wasn’t able to get to 31 short stories for the Forward Motion May Story-A-Day challenge. I’m not complaining, however. 13 short stories is still a great number.

However, I now have all these great short story ideas lingering around the hard drive. Seems a shame to not write them. So, I decided I will be, only it will be 31 short stories in the year of 2012!

Today I finished off #14, and I suspect it will end up revised and released sooner rather than later:

Breaking Point
9656 Words

Company layoffs force starship-pilot Alfonso Wickham to pull double-duty as ground liaison, but when local opportunist thieves steal his cargo they find themselves pursued by a man at his breaking point.
