I wrote this article almost a year ago. It is, by far, the longest lead time of anything I've written for a magazine. I didn't even remember the article (and my copy was lost in the Great Crash of '07) so reading it again was actually sort of interesting. Yes, my article did make the cover...if you look really, really hard. It's the one that's written in the tiny, light blue print, "Avoid Daycare Disaster." It's also the first time I've been published in a national magazine, albeit a magazine that's nearly impossible to find unless you subscribe to it. "Who is Petra Kolber?" you ask. I don't know. According to American Fitness, she's the star of these excercise dvd's: Step Moves New Grooves, 3,2,1 Dance, and Elegant Strength. So now you know. It could have been worse, believe me...both Suzanne Somers and Tony Little have made the cover in the last year. Hey, thanks to Tiffany Morton at the Bellingham Athletic Club for the interview for this one. She probably doesn't even remember doing it because it was so long ago, but thanks anyway!

So to be a "winner" for National Novel Writing Month, I need to average about 1667 words per day. We're seven days into November, so I should have around 11,669 words written so far. Hmmm, let's see here...if you count the title...and "by Scott Lommers"...my word count is right around...four. I could be in a bit of trouble here.
I wonder if it's too late to find a really, really cheap ghostwriter?
On a completely different topic, does anyone have a plot lying around somewhere that they're not using? Maybe something in the "mystery/suspense" genre? Please no crime-solving cats or eight year-old computer geniuses. Thanks. And if your plot is used, I'll be sure to cut you in on all future profits and/or debts.
