Another NaNo…and a new area of the site!

It is only a few weeks away.  Another NaNoWriMo is fast approaching. The question looms, as always: what to write? I had some ideas, I posted them on Facebook and in the Forums, to get feedback.

 

OddballsHere’s the real kicker, I’m not going to tell you what I decided! Instead, I created a new area of the site. The trunk at the bottom of the page, labelled Oddballs, is now clickable, and will take you to things like the new NaNoWriMo Porject page… and more things in the future. So, go check it out, and you can find out what I decided about this year’s NaNoWriMo!

Unicorn Bell

Today, I am writing elsewhere. Specifically, over on Unicorn Bell. I just love the name of her blog. Yesterday, she posted several random pictures, and challenged her followers to a 500-word maximum flash fiction piece, based on one of the pictures. I chose the man and woman with a spacecraft taking off in the background.

I hope you like the piece and comment whether you like it or not! So head on over there and check it out.

Hear that? Your Unicorn Bell is ringing…

Family

This past spring, my family grew by just a loud little bit. I haven’t spoken much about my family here, but perhaps now is a good time to open that window.
The little one is affectionately known as ‘The Goblin’. Anyone who has seen a newborn baby will probably understand. She was born with a full head of dark hair and is generally not fond of taking naps. The Goblin wants to be walked!
She, though being my darling wife’s firstborn, is not the only child we have. The next youngest is a set of 12-year-old twins, which we will call Wyld and Scout. Wyld is a sweet, small-framed girl that works hard for what she wants. She’s a naturally talented rock climber and loves to draw. Scout isn’t as fond of rocky cliffs, but loves baseball with a passion. He’s also on the tech-savvy side of computers and a strong reader.
Their older brother has suddenly turned into a giant. At 14 years of age he is almost exactly 6 feet tall! We’ll call him Scooby, though he looks more like Shaggy. He’s into music and comic books and has dreams of being rock star. He lives on the east coast with his mom, but comes for holidays and summer, any time that has presents involved.
Finally, let me introduce my beautiful Muse. She can do amazing things with a computer, but is also the best and fastest proofreader/editor I’ve ever found. It is thanks to her love and support that I can achieve whatever success lies ahead of me.
So, that’s my family. I hope you’ll enjoy looking through our window from time to time.

Website Redesigned!

Well, finally, the school year is drawing to a close, and summer is heating up. In perfect time for kicking off summer, my website has just launched the redesign done by Arimaspy.com. Let me tell you, it looks amazing!

It’s mostly in the same layout as before, and, so far, with mostly the same content, but the look, wow, you just have to see it. I think you’ll be very pleased with how easy it is to navigate around now.

Oh, but don’t think there’s nothing new under the DavidJace sun… we’ve put in some really fun little “easter eggs” and extra stuff, with more coming as we settle in. For instance, keep your eye out for this guy.

He’s our new mascot. Talk about a blend of fantasy and science fiction! Watch for him around the site, because you’ll never know where he’ll show up, or what he’ll be doing. Some of the things that might happen around the site are small, but fun, others are very new and I hope surprising.

Check out the new site at www.davidjace.com and let me know what you think! Is there anything missing? Anything you wish was there? (And of course, if you happen to run into anything that doesn’t work, do let me know, so we can get it fixed.)

When you’re done checking out my new site, surf over to Arimaspy.com to see what else she’s capable of, and let her know what a great job she did on DavidJace.com!

The Site is being redesigned!

Hi, we’re remodeling! Sorry things are blank right now, but when you come back, it’ll be AWESOME!

 

Unless you leave and come right back, then it might not be awesome just yet… but it will be, I promise!
