So today marks post 298.  Nothing will happen, I will hit publish and then the post will be made available to the world wide web my one fan will read it (thanks dad 🙂 ) and then I will start work. Well I guess that’s something right?

Last November I enetered a contest, it was called National novel writing month. Ok see here’s the deal; an average novel has 50,000 words in it so in November everyone in the contests writes a novel. I failed my novel is not finished if you must know (and I know you must) my novel has 32,000 words and counting. Yes I am still working my goal was to finish in November with the contest now it is to finish before November and if you e mail me john3corrigan@gmail.com I will send you a copy.  I am ready now though, as soon as November rolls around I plan on becoming a writting fool, my word processor (seriously when is the last time you heard or read the words word processor? it’s like saying type writter) will not know what hit it. When I was in the contest I let a few people know, beacause I suffer from a condition called cannot shut mouth itis (yes it is real). A lot of the people I spoke with asked me what happens when I finish at the end of Novemeber. Well there really isn’t a prize as far as accolades go. I mean you get this cool icon to stick on your blog or website (I have a website too www.john3c.com I am working on it okay!) but I mean there is no money or trophy but things do happen just like when I reach 298 or 300 with this blog things will happen good things.

Often times we work and don’t get immediate recognition or praise and can feel discourged but it is important for us, to remember that…..

“People say, what is the sense of our small effort? They cannot see that we must lay one brick at a time, take one step at a time. A pebble cast into a pond causes ripples that spread in all directions. Each one of our thoughts, words and deeds is like that. No one has a right to sit down and feel hopeless. There is too much work to do.

Dorothy Day”
