I Now Present...Chapter 4 Of My Novel.

Welcome one and all to a World Premier!

Yeah. Not really, because I posted it on the NaNo site. Yeah. You know that button I talked about that links you to my page there and my progress so you could cheer me on? Yeah... One of us is a douchebag and didn't go look, huh?


Anyway, no worries, because I'm going to let my blog readers see the entire Chapter 4 of my as of yet untitled masterpiece!

Without further ado...

Chapter 4
 Dreams. That’s really all she knew. Her world consisted of bright patterns, lucid colors, and geometric shapes that would make any humans mind explode with new knowledge. The clarity of these visions sometimes suffered, and she knew that at those points she was close to death, but they always sharpened up, and in that she knew that she was healing. Slowly, but surely, she was healing.
 At the very tip of her mind, she heard a noise. She summoned all the strength she had, which wasn’t much, and she opened her eyes. Not the eyes on her suit, for those stayed open constantly. She opened the eyes inside her suit. She couldn’t tell who or what it was, but she thought it looked human. He was reaching for her. She gave every last bit of power she had left into making some sort of gesture or word to acknowledge the stranger. She made no sound, no movement.
 She slept.

There you have it! Feel free to tell me what you think of this incredibly in-depth look of my book I gave you!

Love you guys, even when I blow up.

In All Honesty, By Clicking This, You're Just Wasting Time...

So the other day it rained hard.

I was stuck in a room with a bunch of bad kids that were in trouble, and I just heard the rain, I didn't see how hard it was coming down or anything. I was pretty much chasing y'all around blogland. However, when I got out of school, I was pretty surprised to see that most of the land around the school was flooded pretty bad. Since I have not grown up at all, and since I still love to play in puddles, this was cool for me. I like to just drive through them, to see how big of splash I can make. Yeah, yeah, I know I can tear my truck up doing that. But still. It's fun.

While driving to my madres house, I saw something worthy of shooting in a video. I've provided you with said video, and I will give you a warning.

By clicking on play, you completely agree to give me 23 seconds of your life that you will never get back. Travis is in no way liable for the things you could have done in this 23 seconds, such as: read a blog that might mean something, brush your teeth, or completely humiliate yourself in the bedroom. Furthermore, by viewing this video, you accept all risks that come with the viewing which may include, extreme apathy, disappointment, an actual decrease in intelligence, and diarrhea.

Told you it was a waste of time.

Tomorrow will start the writing of NaNo, and I'm wicked excited. I have to place a call to Frannie, WY today to talk to someone about their lovely little town, and get some information on it. Should make for an interesting couple of minutes. I may blog about it. The NaNo pic on the right side of my blog up there is a link to my word count progress. I will probably update it a couple times a week. If you click on it, it will tell you how many words I've gotten so far! You can use this information to mock encourage me throughout the month.

Oh yeah, this is not the only video I have posted on YouTube. You can go find the other one if you want. It should give you plenty of reasons to laugh at me.

Enjoy your weekend, and I love you all.

That's real.

Hey blog buddies.

Just wanted to apologize for skipping out on you yesterday. We had homecoming at the school I aide at, and I was busy all day helping. It pretty much reminded me of why I hated homecoming in high school. Too much drama.

On a more positive note, (or maybe negative to you if you really like me bunches) I've decided to write a novel in a month. You can look over there to the right and see the little button I posted. I don't have any idea what I'm going to write about, and I've got to do 50k words in 30 days. That's over a thousand words a day. That's brutal.

So listen...

The blog may suffer a bit.

I want to just apologize up front for that. Although I will tell you, there is a good chance I'll get to chapter 1 in my "novel," and abandon ship faster than a cowardly captain who has heard a dish fall in the kitchen. So you may get me back after all.

I really hope that's not the case though. I'd like to accomplish this. I guess we'll see what happens, and I'll work on being SUPER funny between now and then, so that you all get your fill and can do without my sweet sexy ass humor for a little while.

I've made that commitment to you, and I start right now. Want to hear a dirty joke?

Of course you do. So here it is...
