NaNoWriMo No. 3 – Tenth Update

I’m making decent progress and still look to meet the 50K by the end of November. I would be ahead of the game had I not watched Jupiter Ascending yesterday evening. Let me say this about that . . . on second thought, I better keep a civil tongue. Of course, I should have turned it off after the first few minutes, and I would have had I known it was a Wachowski movie.

Not to give myself airs, but even on my worst day I know I could come up with a better plot . . . blindfolded, and with a hand tied behind my back . 

My current NNWM-2K15 progress: 



As of this morning, I’m at 38,500 words. 

For them sporting a curious streak, today I’m starting on Chapter 23 (have not started writing yet). 

As in prior years, all of it will go up on the blog. But, as in prior years, all but the first two chapters are offered up in password-protected posts. 

E-mail me a request if you are interested in reading further (read the first two chapters to decide if you are interested.)

The next post will contain Chapters 15 and 16 will go up immediately after this post goes live. As I said, it’s password protected. 

Please, don’t just ask for a password just to make me feel good. Unless you intend to read it, don’t ask. I will not feel hurt, I will not cry myself to sleep, I will not hate anyone who chooses not to read my effort. I will, however, get a little miffed if I get asked for passwords by a bunch of people and then only my usual four or five readers actually read the stuff. 

I’ve been posting photos I process normally and then with a few churned through a few Topaz Plugins, and today is no different.


That is one of the many overlooks into Bryce Canyon National Park. Here’s a few variations of the photo . . . 




Now, I know many people just prefer the “normal” photos, so . . . 



And now . . . back to writing.

The full-size photos are in the SmugMug gallery HERE. That gallery will eventually contain all of the photos I use for my NNWM-2K15 update posts. 

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

  1. We visited Bryce Canyon several years ago — beautiful country! We also have seen Zion, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef and Arches National Parks on various trips to Utah and they are all beautiful! I got very sick one very hot day in Arches, though, when I climbed a few hundred steps to get a good picture of Delicate Arch.


  2. disperser … I haven’t seen “Jupiter Ascending.” Based on your ‘recommendation,’ it sounds like a must-miss. ;-) Your photos of Bryce Canyon National Park are gorgeous. I’ve never been there. I’m glad when we went to Valley of Fire that it wasn’t blazing hot. The heat and weight you had to tote would make the trip a chore. But the scenery … ahhh!

    Well that was a very eloquent way of saying it, dear Disperser… I would like to read the last chapter, at my own pace… I am quite behind with my own blog… But I promise to read and briefly give you my humble thoughts
    As to the gallery of photographs… I love the overlooks into Bryce Canyon National Park.
    Which program are you using to change those pics… I am curious… I have recently created an Instagram account and download an application which is very neat… It helps you display many photographs together … Also the filters are good… But it is the first time I see this cartoon or drawing effect, which is very nice
    Sending best wishes. Aquileana 🎇 ~~


  4. After the stunning and beautiful original…the next 3 photos are SO cool! :-)
    I like the normal photos, but being abnormal myself, I do REALLY REALLY REALLY enjoy the special effects photos! :-P
    HUGS!!! :-)
