Haha I seen that! I didn't recognize who it was at first, but I figured it was somebody from SmackJeeves. That's awesome! I believe I added you back, my memory is spotty though, I'll have to double-check.

Most folks usually call me one or the other. Brennen's my first name and "Hank" is just a shortened form of my last name, so I'm okay either way! Whichever's easier/more comfortable.

As for my word count....lol....I'm an active duty member of the U.S. Air Force. I'm currently deployed in the Middle East, where I'm blessed with both a lot of time when I'm not at work, and not a lot of stuff I can do with that spare time. Makes it easy to get work like this done. Lol

It also doesn't hurt that country I'm in is about 10 hours ahead of the time zone back home, so technically, I had a head start. Lol

Anyway, good luck on your novel! And that goes for everyone here who's participating!

Augh, sorry, didn't mean to misspell your name (and I had just seen it, too... it's been one of those weeks). But, noted!
Spare time or no, that's still pretty badass in my book hahaha~

Good luck to you as well! And anyone else participating~!

No worries, Ghost! And thank you!

Also, Eddie Rabbit got the song wrong....it's not "Driving My Life Away," it's "Writing My Life Away". Lyrics in the first spoiler go to the tune of the song in the second spoiler:

Spoiler! :
"Well, the laptop, upright, writing on an autumn night,
Paragraph, next page, gotta keep a-writing more lines
Gotta keep rollin'

Yeah, the writer's block, in my head, and lack of sleep leaves me dead, frustrated, uptight, gotta keep a-making more lines
Gotta keep rollin'

Ooooooh, I'm writing my life away!
Sleep can wait another day,
Poor old me

Ooooooh, I'm writing my life away!
Make another novel page

Well, the deadline's smoothly coming on to me, trying to talk me into more writing, or I'm going to be sorry
And it's in just a few weeks

Yeah, buddy, get me another cup of coffee,
Pop it up, shoot it out, words keep flying down the line, hey
Gotta keep rollin'

Ooooooh, I'm writing my life away
Cranking out another page
Poor old me

Ooooooh, I'm writing my life away
Hair is slowly turning gray
Poor old me...

Ooooooh, I'm writing my life away,
Sleep can wait another day
Yeah...."
