Billion Man Rapture Has A New Home

So I’ve decided to split my blog. As you guys may have noticed, the majority of my posts in this blog have been in relation to my Billion Man Rapture idea. I realize I’ve been thinking of the blog as specifically for the Billion Man Rapture project, which is not the case. I entirely intend to use it for blog posts about random topics and my other projects as the time reaches for me to work on them. So logically, I probably should give Billion Man Rapture a place of its own. So after days of trying to come up with a name for the new blog, strangely enough I got the epiphany to call it….http://billionmanrapture.wordpress.com/

Weird huh?

So far I simply transferred copies of my Billion Man Rapture related blog posts to their new home. There’s nothing new to be seen as yet, but that should change very soon hopefully. I’m still working out the details of what I will be posting there. So far the verdict is as follows.

Progress reports: I’ll be giving updates on the progress of my world building and character development as well as how far I’ve reached in writing the novel itself.

Story excerpts: There’ll be a few excerpts from the story that I think may whet readers’ appetites for more.

Promotions: When I get around to promoting Billion Man Rapture, you will be getting promotional posts from that blog.

Peripheral Events: Part of my strategy to get a feel for the universe I’m trying to create is to write short pieces that will not be included in the book, but will give the reader insights into what is going on outside of the story that may affect the in-story characters. They should help me to build my universe in a more fun way than writing pages and pages of details too.

So…run on over to http://billionmanrapture.wordpress.com/ and click Follow so you can get updates as they come!

One Lovely Blog Award

So…I’ve been nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award!

Now for my nomination acceptance speech…Yeah right!

1) Thank the one that nominated you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Cody Jeffrey for nominating my blog! I came across his blog a little more than a week ago and if it wasn’t for my commitments to working on my own projects, I’d be reading his posts like I’d read a thousand page novel. He’s working on a series of novels…just go and have a look!

2)  Put up the picture for the One Lovely Blog Award.

3) Tell everyone seven things about yourself.

I’m the last child of three children. My siblings are twin sisters, older than me. Being the only male child and a single, I wished I had gotten a twin brother, or that I could get a younger brother. Was kinda lonely admittedly…but I adapted dammit!

I have awful sleeping habits. No matter how many times I try to get to sleep early, I either end up staying up late or waking up in the middle of the night and getting engaged in some activity. And then my internal clock has the audacity to want me up and about between 6 and 7 no matter what!

I consider myself an introvert, or at least leaning towards that end of the scale. I’m very quiet around people I don’t know, but once I get more comfortable with them, they may start to wonder if I have a few screws loose…in a good way. I get a lot of random, nonsensical ideas that I don’t keep to myself.

Probably an extension of my third thing-about-myself, but I’d probably gravitate towards a lifestyle where nature is my main company…with the cop out that I’d want to have technological access to the outside world.

I seem to be quite good at memorizing things. Numbers and faces especially. I used to get weird looks and remarks from my friends for rattling off numbers. They’re used to it now…in fact they seem to come to me to remind them of numbers or where they know certain persons from.

I used to be fascinated with Chemistry. Why? Explosions, bitch! Then the education system made it boring: not ONE experiment having to do with blowing up anything! Just organics and electron orbitals and…snore…

I seem to like odd numbers…

4)  And nominate seven other people and tell them in their blogs that you nominated them.

Thought provoking, beautiful artwork, intriguing stories…these are blogs you don’t wanna miss!
