So, I haven’t been online much today, and I haven’t posted anything to this space until now, and did any of you even notice I was missing? Hm? Didja?
Over the weekend my wife kept trying to get me to read a book (read her post from this afternoon for more details). But we stayed up so late playing computer games Saturday and Sunday I never got around to cracking it open. Besides that, I have a couple of Stephen King books from the library to read, but I guess I’ll read her recommendation first.
The funny thing is, she wants me to read it and then tells me I’m a better writer than the guy who wrote that book. Why would I want to read something from someone who’s not as good as I am? If I want to learn karate, I go study under someone who can kick my butt. If not, what’s the point? I’m not there to teach, I’m there to learn. But she insists it’s for me to know something about my competition. The book is a paranormal, I assume, and she’s likened it to Ghost Hunters. So I think I’d better give her wisdom serious consideration and read it. Besides, could my beloved have said anything nicer about me than what she did? I don’t think so.
In other news, good things seem to be happening today. It’s been a while since anything encouraging happened, but today brings some hope and excitement which I haven’t had in a long, long while. I’ll provide details when I can.
I haven’t written or edited anything for so long I’ve forgotten how. I have a lot to do with my completed manuscript and I’m hoping I’ll finish it before I die. I think it’s time to schedule that sort of thing. If I don’t I’ll never get back into the swing and get this done, and the clock is in serious run-mode now. I have to do something to get this off my plate; I mean, c’mon … I completed the first draft in November of 2007, for pity’s sake.
Let’s see … anything else?
Not really. I wrote a bunch of 5secfic (five second fiction) over the weekend for Twitter. I also made my profile and updates public late last week, and now I’m getting a bunch of people following me whom I don’t know. It’s a little scary. I’m always nervous around strangers anyway.
Oh, I haven’t moved my bi0-data crap yet. I think I’m going to do that, though. If I thought I could control the search engine tags better, I’d move it to one of those junky free web sites like FreeWebs or something and let it be. But for now, it’s still here … ‘cause I’m a traffic whore.
How was your weekend?
