Not bad, but I wonder how much of this is generic soothsaying, like cold-reading…

What David Means
You are balanced, orderly, and organized. You like your ducks in a row.
You are powerful and competent, especially in the workplace.
People can see you as stubborn and headstrong. You definitely have a dominant personality.

You are usually the best at everything … you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic “Type A” personality.

You are very hyper. You never slow down, even when it’s killing you.
You’re the type of person who can be a workaholic during the day… and still have the energy to party all night.
Your energy is definitely a magnet for those around you. People are addicted to your vibe.

You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It’s easy to get you excited… which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don’t stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.

What’s Your Name’s Hidden Meaning?

Two Down. One to Go.

As of this evening at 9:15 p.m. ET, the draft manuscript for Star Trek Destiny: Mere Mortals, is finished. Final word count: just a wee dram over 100k.

Spell check is completed.

Now I’m putting it down for 48 hours. Tomorrow is a day off with my lovely wife, and on Wednesday I must report back to my full-time job.

But on Wednesday night, when I come home, and after I have dinner, I will begin my read-through and polishing draft. If all continues to go as hoped, it will be off to my beta readers over the weekend.

And while I await their feedback, I will begin the last leg of my literary death march, into part the third: Lost Souls.

Happy New Year, f-listers!

~ Dave

A rarity worth sharing

I’m happy to report that I’ve had an unusually productive day of writing today: 3,000 words, comprising four scenes of Mere Mortals, book two of my Star Trek Destiny trilogy.

Just seven scenes to go, which I hope to have finished by New Year’s Day. Then I can scrawl out the acknowledgments, paste in the About the Author copy, treat myself to special ice cream, and start my spell-check and polishing draft.

With a little bit of luck, I’ll have the draft ms. out to my ever-helpful beta readers by Friday, January 4, and a revised version to my editors by Wednesday, January 9.

Then I can begin the final part of this franchise-shaking saga: Lost Souls, coming to an editor near me sometime in April and to bookstores everywhere in December 2008.

Yee. Haw.

Can you see me as a wizard?

Let the mockery and mirthful jesting commence.

I Am A: Lawful Good Human Wizard (6th Level)

Ability Scores:

Strength-11
Dexterity-12
Constitution-13

Intelligence-16
Wisdom-12
Charisma-13

Alignment:
Lawful Good A lawful good character acts as a good person is expected or required to act. He combines a commitment to oppose evil with the discipline to fight relentlessly. He tells the truth, keeps his word, helps those in need, and speaks out against injustice. A lawful good character hates to see the guilty go unpunished. Lawful good is the best alignment you can be because it combines honor and compassion. However, lawful good can be a dangerous alignment because it restricts freedom and criminalizes self-interest.

Race:
Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Class:
Wizards are arcane spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard’s strength is her spells, everything else is secondary. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar- a small, magical, animal companion that serves her. With a high Intelligence, wizards are capable of casting very high levels of spells.
