As has been requested (endlessly) EK's Star Log is returning to the internet. You can still read the original archive here... https://eelkat.wordpress.com 

The reason you couldn't find it is because I set it to private un-index mode, meaning it no longer shows up in Google search results and can only be accessed by a direct link.

Meaning, if you didn't have the url for it, no amount of searching for it would tell you how to find it. Anyone who had the url could still access it though.

I had set it to private September 23, 2013, intending to move each page here to EelKat.com... however, November 14, 2013, after only moving about 30 pages, I was beaten up and left paralyzed for 5 months, then spent 18 months relearning to walk. I am still crippled and have limited mobility.

Below is one of the blog posts that originally appeared on EK's Star Log. The original articles are still online but no longer indexed in Google. Links to the original article, are included with this post, as is the original posting date. Clicking the links will take you to the original site, where you can see the old Space Dock 13 website still online. Space Dock 13 as it looked when hosted on WordPress from 2003 to 2013.

2009 Half Way Mark Report For:

Half Way Mark Report For: The Year of Doing Big, Fun, Scary Things Together

The Year of Doing Big, Fun, Scary Things Together

The end of July marks the half way point for NaNoWriMo’s Big Scary 2009. It’s time for us to update our goals and give the half way progress reports. Have you guys been keeping track of your goals? Did you get anything done yet? Have you added any new last minute goals? Have any goals you planned been knocked off for whatever reason? Now is the time to head back to NaNoWriMo and let every one know how you are making out with this year’s goals, if you haven’t done so already.

Here’s my progress report for this year:

Once upon a time I had a thread where I was going to keep track of my goals. I have no idea where it went and I think I only posted on it once since I made it! LOL!I had several goals:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

one was to read a book every week. I’ve been doing that, but I forgot to write down the books as I read them and now I don’t know if I’m on schedule or not, because I’m pretty sure I missed some weeks and I don’t know if I read enough other weeks to make up for it or not. This is my standard goal, every year – read 52 books or one per week; I usually do pretty good at it, but I always forget to keep track of what I read. I need to keep a chart. As an add on to that goal I had a list that said “including these books . . . .” well, I did THAT part of the goal at least, I read the few books on THAT list within the first month

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

my second goal was to work on editing all the drafts I have laying around (I’ve got 6 nearly finished books and dozens of short stories scattered all over the place) and get at least one of them published by the end of the year. I’m good at writing lots and lots of stuff really fast, but I’m so terribly slow when it comes to editing, so I have ended up with more stuff to edit and not much editing done. I have however gotten one book and one play-script nearly complete and almost publishable, so I’m nearing my goal, but not sure if (at the speed I’m going) I’ll get either published before next year, so this goal may roll over and become a goal for next year, but than again, I still have a few months to go, so there’s still time, maybe I’ll get a sudden burst of editing energy and get it finished right quick, who knows. In any case, I am seeing progress with the book now in it’s 4th draft! (YAY!).

There has been a bit of an unfortunate side effect to this goal – the book I’m working on is the non-fiction autobiography one called “For Fear of Little Men”, about my UFO experiences and how a local church group reacted to it (they reacted like a mob straight out a Frankenstein, accusing me of being a witch that consorted with demons and than took it upon themselves to destroy my property, kill my pets, and set fire to my house.) The first draft for this book went online shortly after the end of NaNoWriMo08 so that I could edit it with the help of some online friends. Parts of the second draft went online in early 2009 here:http://www.squidoo.com/Amphibious-Aliens

and here: http://www.squidoo.com/OnBeingHomeless2

and here: http://www.squidoo.com/Autism-and-Me

and here: http://www.squidoo.com/No-Meat This was so that I could get some various reader opinions on what I had written, as well as to get some feedback on what stuff readers wanted to know. (The book is being written as an interview and all of the interview questions are coming directly from my online readers, this way I can actually be answering questions people are actually asking about what happened.)
