Walk 011: Theater Geeking and Other Things

Monday October 18th, 2021 :: 7:06am :: 46f and sunny

So life has kept me from getting a walk and talk recorded for a bit, but I’m keeping at it.

Today I rambled about IASTE, films, Sci-Fi television and The Band’s Visit

Today’s Recommendations:

The Band’s Visit (if you can’t catch it on stage, check out the original cast album)

Free Guy

NaNoWriMo 2020 – Day 5 Update

So far the month hasn’t been going all that great. For various reasons life has been eating into my windows of time that I can write. Additionally various things have been throwing me off my game and leaving me without the mental bandwidth when I have been able to write.

That said, while I am behind for the month at the moment, I have made a point of making sure that I have put at least a few words down. So I have an unbroken update streak so far.

Tonight and tomorrow look to be better than things have been, and I hope to be able to get out for a walk and talk tomorrow morning as well.

I hope the month is going well for all you other WriMos out there.

US Election Day 2020

For those of you who read my ramblings and live in the United States like I do, today is the last day to cast your ballot. If you haven’t voted early, please get out there and participate in the process.

It doesn’t matter if you lean left, right or try to chart a course down the middle, this is an opportunity to have your voice heard.

To quote the excellent film “The American President”: “America isn’t easy. America is advanced citizenship. You’ve got to want it bad, because it’s gonna put up a fight.” (video of longer quote here)

NaNoWriMo 2020 – Day 1

Good Morning, I hope that NaNoWriMo 2020 is off to a good start for all of you.


My first day went very well and I managed to end the day with 3,062 words! Nearly twice the number needed daily to reach the goal. I’m hoping that I can keep this momentum going through the month.

Today is Monday so much of my day will be taken by work. With luck I can at least hit a normal day’s par to keep myself ahead of the curve.


How is NaNo treating all of you?

2020 NaNoWriMo

As I stated in my walk ramble yesterday I’ve decided to give NaNoWriMo a try again this year.

My target is the 50k but I’m mostly going to be happy with just making sure I write something everyday.

Since last year was a major fail for me I never got around to repopulating my buddy list. So if you happen to be taking on the challenge this year and are interested my profile can be found at https://nanowrimo.org/participants/laithpreston

Let me know if you are going to participate this year!

Walk 006: Sunday Superhero Stroll

Sorry I forgot to post for Walk 005 the other morning.

Today I walked as part of the virtual walk for the Superhero Heart Run. Normally I would be at Racoon River Park jogging in the 5k during the fundraiser. However, with COVID and the extra concerns for the health of that those we would be there to support the organization decided to have everyone do it virtually. This was a good decision for all, as much fun as the run is it just wouldn’t be safe.
