National Novel Writing Month

Crimson Lightning's ongoing celebration of the whirlwind adventures of the fastest man alive came to a screeching halt this past Halloween and I haven't added a post in over two weeks. Spooky, I know. What happened? Was I abducted from the timestream by the likes of Abra Kadabra or Professor Zoom? Did the Rogues Gallery finally find a way to silence me?

In fact, I'm currently engrossed in the annual event known as National Novel Writing Month, attempting to write a complete novel of over 50,000 words in just thirty days. This is my fourth year participating and, nineteen days into the exhilarating effort, it looks as if it will be my second time around emerging as a winner. And believe you me, not a day goes by that I don't wish that I was a little more like Wally West or Barry Allen, endowed with my own personal connection to the speed force!

Of course, this creative undertaking leaves little or no time for blogging. Thus, Crimson Lightning will be on hiatus for at least a couple of more weeks as I wrap up the novel and begin with my rewrites. If you'd like to follow my progress--and thereby encourage me to stay on task--you can check out my newly launched Twitter feed, featuring daily updates and excerpts from my work for NaNoWriMo. Otherwise, rest assured that your regularly scheduled look at the colorful characters and silly super-science of the scarlet speedster's comic book exploits will return soon! Watch this space...

Good luck. I have entered it but haven't kept up on it. But at least I have my novel started.
