Now I know I’m not the best blogger in history. In fact, in the past several months I have only posted, I think, twice before now. Including this post, then, makes three…carry the one…I guess I’m averaging about one post every three months or so. Time to up my game. I’ll try to do better.
Speaking of upping our game, there are things going on behind the scenes here at Dumb Guys Online. Many of them, I’m not ready to talk about yet. The one big piece of news I can share with you is this: the Dumb Guys are being printed in a campus newspaper!
That’s right. The Dumb Guys are being printed in a semi-regular sort of way by the good folks at The Ontarion, the University of Guelph’s student newspaper. If you are so inclined, shoot them an email and let them know how much you appreciate them supporting your favorite Dumb Guys.
On another note, November is a busy month for creative folks everywhere. It’s National Novel Writing Month — if you haven’t heard of it, Google it. It’s a good time. The whole idea is to write a 50,000 word novel over the course of the month. Obviously it won’t be a great novel, but that’s not the point — the point is to get out a first draft. You can always edit later.
This is the fifth year I’ve participated. And it will be the second year of those five that I will not meet the goal. Don’t feel you need to be disappointed in me; I’m disappointed enough in myself. Let me just say I’ve got too many irons in the fire at the moment. You, on the other hand, should dive right in now. Give it a shot.
Be one of us.
