“ I believe that magic is art and that art is literally magic.”
- Alan Moore
Ah, the Magna Carta. Originally it was drafted to bring peace to warring factions of the British aristocracy. It consisted of a list of rights and protections that neither side saw fit to adhere to. Eventually it lead to all out war. What a perfect analogy to carry into novel writing!
The good folks at NaNoWriMo sent me a nice reminder that it’s almost National Novel Writing Month, and also informed me that a Plot-Planning Party would be held at my library on a day I work. When the universe slaps you on the face with something like that, I find that it’s best to listen.
One minute book reviews of all the books I read in December.
After his retirement from the Port of The Dalles, he kept himself busy by finishing his dream home, building a two-story barn, two carports, and finally a home for his daughter. He restored a 1963 Chrysler New Yorker to pristine condition, insisting that everything was original, right down to the radio. Those were just the big projects. There were a million little projects too. Antiques he refinished, dog houses he built, cars he fixed, trees planted, neighbors’ driveways he plowed. He could do it all.
If you have ever walked on the floating sidewalks of The Dalles boat marina, you’ve walked on his work. If you have ever been to Riverfront Park, you’ve seen his work there too.
You know those so-called “facts” about Chuck Norris? I hate to tell you this, but those facts are all wrong. Oh, the facts themselves aren’t in dispute. There really was a man who pushed the earth down when he did push-ups, and inspired fear in the boogeyman. He just wasn’t an actor named Chuck Norris. He was a man named Robert Rundell.
