I did it. I really did it.

It took 29 days of working every single day, at least 2000 words every day, and I did it. I wrote a complete first draft of a novel. 67,547 words. What an incredible experience!

The way I wrote was completely new to me. I normally tend to pore over my words as I go, and I tend to go back and correct along the way, but not with this. With the deadline looming, I sat and just vomited words out onto the screen, working in short, furious bursts. The draft is wildly inconsistent as far as quality and depth go, and the tone floats back and forth across various rivers, but I have a complete work, and that's all that counts.

A complete work means I can give the book to some readers I trust and start getting feedback so I can do a second draft. Because there will be a second draft.

RISE CITY: SUZIE may not be the Great American Novel, but I know enough to realize that a lot of it works and is pretty good. And now that I have it, I want to make it great and try and get it into people's hands. Plus, I'm feeling ambitious about it; as I wrote, I found myself discovering little plot points that could be useful later down the road, and suddenly I realized I was writing the first book of a trilogy.

So next November, when NaNoWriMo rolls around, there's a damned good chance you'll find me tied to the computer again, typing away at RISE CITY: MATT. It'll be a long, hard, painful process.

I can't wait!

Awesome! Good luck Marc!
Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today?s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
