I had every intention of doing some writing today. I really did. I had every motivation, because I just finished a couple of installments of Witch Hunt, the second of which will be posted on Monday. I was going to edit a few chapters a day over the weekend in Ghost Hunters, too, and maybe have that draft cleaned up and ready for beta reading in a couple of weeks.
Reality is very different than my fantasies, however.

Well, I was going to do some weird search terms today, but alas — there are no weird search terms for me to highlight, frankly. My blog has been clean and bright, and people seem to be finding it more for valuable content than for weirdness lately.
That’s good news. At least if the Internet is stupidly weird, I don’t have to see it.

… it was stupidity itself not to own an umbrella in the Midwest? Do you know why I said that?
Let me give you the setting:

I don’t hurt as much today.
I have a blister on the ball of my foot threatening to manifest. It’s tender but not painful; just enough to make me aware of its presence. Changing shoes at the office has been beneficial in keeping it from blossoming full-on.

… DOG tired. Speaking of dogs, mine are barkin’. Big time.
My legs hurt too. Hear that, Stranger? You’re not alone. I didn’t do it with an elliptical machine, but the urban terrain of the Big City has been just as effective. For someone that hasn’t consistently done any sort of exercise for something like 20 years, I can’t believe this is only day two.
It went well again today. I have more assignments to complete, but need some help from the Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to complete them. I hope I prove competence pretty soon — at least to myself. I’m always a nervous little tick, but right now I’m downright jumpy.
I’m starting to panic about writing, too. I have no time. When I get home I have precious few hours to be with the kids, my wife and check email and such before it’s back to bed to go comatose for tomorrow’s strut from train station to office. Who the hell knew half a frickin’ mile could be so friggin’ far??
Well … I’ll do my best. I’m thinking about dropping a few dimes on that Neo word processing thing. Any thoughts on that bad boy? I have time on the train to do what I want: read (which I’ll be doing with some text books to help my skill set), write (when I can stay awake), stare at other trainglodytes (which I do a LOT of) … whatever. Anyone seen it? Used it? It runs on AA batteries, which is cool. No recharging issues. But I’m scared of making a bad decision. Does anyone know anything about that doo-hickey? I’ve seen it in Writer’s Digest, if you’re curious, and their website is here. Any input you have is desperately sought and dearly appreciated.
God bless, and good night, y’all. Patience, Raga … I have the next part of Witch Hunt laid out, I just can’t find time to write it.
