First official week back in the office and man, did it kick my ass. The extra hour earlier I have to get up just to get to work on time really adds up. At least the actual travel time is still my own (I take a bus to work). But by Friday, I had nothing left.
Because of all that, this wasn’t a “7 and 7” week. I’m not even mad though.
- This week’s writing chain: 5 days
- Total writing days this week: 5 days
- Pieces out on submission: 1
Ooh look, a new stat! I sent a reprint out while I wait for the last story I’ve finished to cool before I send that out this week. And, I’m about halfway through revising another story. So all in all, this has been a productive July for writing.
Well if I’m not writing, then I’ve got time to read, right? Especially since my preorder of the latest novel from my favorite writer in the universe THE SHIPBUILDER OF BELLFAIRIE by M. Rickert has come in! Slightly ahead of the pub date I might add, so I feel compelled to take advantage of that fact!
I liked the first five episodes of MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: REVELATION. Seriously, the only way I would’ve enjoyed it more was if they used the old school animation, but that’s just me.
If this story line’s not your bag, that’s fine. And you should express that if you feel you need to. But getting worked up in a way that makes Kevin Smith, of all people, tell you to “Grow the fuck up,” you are truly lost!
IN THE WILD
Walked into my local really wanting a Snapple lemonade after work one day. But they didn’t have Snapple. I’m not dunking on the company (I mean look at they work they put into that label) but let me just say… it wasn’t Snapple.
