In Which the Kids (and Daddy) Tell a Scary Story...

Once there was a large storm.

A menacing shadow rose over the abandoned cemetery.

Suddenly, it took the form of a marauding banana!

The banana chuckled and said to himself, "Time to make...applesauce!"  The homes of the slumbering apple people shone in the moonlit valley below.

He stalked down the slope, his stalk glistening in the soft, evil light.

A semi roared toward him.  He held out his peel and the truck slipped on it.

Meanwhile, in a small apple house, Susie Apple sat up in bed.  She saw the banana and screamed.

Meanwhile, up on a high mountainside in a cave, there was a wicked wizard who was controlling the banana!

The wizard had a cold, so he went to an evil guy and the evil guy killed the wizard.

The banana went completely insane or, as some people might say, it went "bananas."

The giant marauding bananas banana jumped into Susie Apples house, so she made Banana Shakes.

The End

Can you guess who wrote

Novel update


Believe it or not, I am still sane.


You should do NaNoWriMo next year.  (You know. National Novel Writing Month.)

In my NaNoWriMo novel I am currently at a word count of 6507 words.

My two smugglers-turned-spies (Yes. They're spies now.) are hiding in enemy territory listening to a couple of lizards geeking out about new swords.

Me in the Nebraska Supreme Courtroom
(This is completely unrelated to the post)

In my side project I have no idea how many words I have, (I am writing it in a notebook in my spare time.) but I'm on page 62.  It's the one about rocket ships and lasers.  The comedy relief just hopped off to the bathroom, the name of their ship is the Deus ex Machina, and they are eating supper.  Why are you still on your computer?  Burn your video games!  Go play outside!  NOW!!!

Moons, You Like Moons!

A bit of word association from the 3-year-old.  She gives new meaning to the phrase "free verse." 

Moon pants on fire.
Fireman needs to get the pants on fire burned out!
Moon, we like moons on pants on fires.
And we like moons on noses!
Moon widow on noses!
Question marky!
Moon Sun!
Drawers, we don't like drawers!
Emma can't use fingers.
We all like this!
Bad guys, Emma kills bad guys.
Boats can break that's wooden.
Moon our noses.
Dirty foots.
Foots are dirty.
Nemesis are dirty, too.
We're about to see you.
And we're going to try to myth that sick.


Hello, again.

My name is still David.  Emma had some nice words to say about the world, didn't she?  November is National Novel Writing Month.  (NaNoWriMo)  In one of the books I'm writing the heroes got captured by aliens and put in little metal cells on the mothership, and Dan, who has broken his arm, jumps up at the guard and makes him let them out.  Then they blast their way into the hangar and steal their ship back, and at the moment they're taking off.  I haven't gotten any further than that.  And in the other book these four squirrels who are pretty much the main characters just escaped from a burning city of bad guys and are going to the super invincible squirrel fortress.  What is happening to your main character(s)?  Anything exciting?  Why are you still on the computer?!  Go play outside!  Now!!!

Zombie Troll Ogre

For starters, the Zombie Troll Ogre is a troll that walks around every night and raises the dead from their graves and builds the zombie parts onto its self.

This monster is mentioned in my novel Beavers Vs. The Dark King.  Oh, and by the way, do not have nightmares because I made up this monster!

Uh oh, here comes one now!  Bye bye, I must go!
