NaPoMoJo W 1 Nov 2017
Posted Nov 1, 2017
As advertised, commencing a NaPoMoJo project for Nov 2017.
Since DG is suggesting experimentation with the Peer Review system for NaJoPoMo, I'll be doing that, besides keeping a record on my own machine.
I personally Like the PR system for its capacity to allow revision, since I am myself a non-linear thinker.
With respect to the record here, in my Journal, the NaJoPoMo entries will be entirely under this journal entry.
On thematics, I'll be warming over last years' uncompleted NaJoPoMo theme, “The GMO Jungle", a scifi short tour of an asteroidal space colony of the 24th century, populated with GMO animals that do not occur in nature.
I've another theme on Space Colonialism generally, a critical treatment on Space Colonialism concepts in the popular media focusing on the practical demands of it as distinct from popular misconceptions, whîch I intend to develop into a primer, "Space Colonialism 101".
Though time demands on this one will extend beyond November, I'll be starting this month in context of NaJoPoMo, working on form for articles that be developed into chapters for the evisioned book.
Bills to pay today, medical work plus a 200 mile/320 km round trip drive tomorrow & hopefully will be picking up the pace Friday.

h2g2 server down when I attempted to enter this Sunday.
Did some Halloween readings from Chapters 18 & 19 Robert E. Howards "The Hour of the Dragon" and Talbot Mundy's "Caves of Fear" Saturday.
Sunday, did little except get caught up on my h2g2 conversations and make a start on paying my bills and study my calendar for the month.
Medical appointment coming up Wednesday.

I didn't write anything about it at the time, went into shock, am recovering now.
My Mom died Mon 31 Aug 2015 in her early 80s after a series of at least 5 heart attacks and least 7 strokes over the preceding 12 years, the last of my surviving antecedants gone.
I'd had sole care of her from June 2012 to Oct 2014.
May of 2014 she came to a pass where she was no longer able to care for herself adequately and had to be placed in a board and care facility.
October 2014 my sister and brother in law were able to take up some of the expense.
Over her last couple of years she wasn't quite in a vegetative state but was beginning to approach it, never quite completely awake or asleep and given to frequent but decreasing bouts of somnabulism.
During her active career she'd worked primarily as a nurse and is still well remembered locally on that account.
