I hate to leave anyone hanging. I didn’t write the post that was supposed to go out today. I lost my train of thought on a few things. I’m sure you recognize that from Friday’s post.

I’m working on fixing all of this. I’ll keep you posted.

There are days…


I have a lot of projects going on. Let’s get that out of the way. I’m trying to build an audience for my work. Recent issues with the owner of Twitter don’t help with the latter of these. I joined Substack to get a bit more followers for my writing. It hasn’t helped, at least not yet.

The other day, I saw a post on Instagram about going dark for six months. I’ve thought of doing this a lot. Just shutter my blog and all of my socials and work. It’s what I’m leaning towards.

I enjoy the interaction on this blog. I enjoy Twitter, but that place is not what it once was. I know it’s on its last legs. We all see through the fire and smoke. We saw it when MySpace crashed.

Anywho, I will be going on a sabbatical.


Back to work…


My wife and I finished spreading the rock on our yard this last weekend. We’re still recovering.

I am working on a new project. It’s moving swiftly. I hit 13k today and wrote 2100 words each of the last two days. It’s been a while since I wrote this quickly.

Sorry, this one is later than usual. I was busy getting my word count. I’ll leave you with this, get it done.

A hectic few days.


I’m attempting to get my body in better shape. These means I’m working out 3 days a week. I will progress to a daily workout when my body is comfortable with the workouts I’m doing.

This led me to workout on Wednesday. I have to back up a bit.

Our front lawn does every year. It’s a menace that my wife and I no longer want to put effort into fixing. We ordered rock a few weeks ago. It happened to arrive Wednesday. I did a full workout Wednesday morning and threw rock for four hours Wednesday night. I woke up sore as hell Thursday.

On the writing front, I’m continuing to work on this new/old project. It’s coming along and I’m taking my time with it. I’m easily distracted. The medication I’m on seems to do that. I went off of it and it didn’t work. I’m back on and feeling better.

I started using Notes on Substack this week. I can’t stand Twitter lately. The algorithm is all over the place and the leadership sucks. I’m trying out Notes for now.

It’s hard to get a following on these newer social media places. Especially as someone without a publisher backing them. I’m still writing and while I’ve considered quitting, I’ve worked too hard to get where I am. My writing improves every day. I won’t back away from that.

Anyway, I’ll see you my Substack if you’re a subscriber over there on Sunday. If not, I’ll see you here on Monday. Have a good weekend.
