Good morning everyone, it’s Friday the Thirteenth and the last unlucky day of the year… well, the last officially unlucky day of the year. I sure there are going to be days where nothing seems to go right, but today has horror as a purpose. So, to celebrate, I am going to go about my daily routine, except that I am going to clutch nervously at a rabbit’s foot. I’m certain the rabbit will be put out by the molestation. Not my problem really. It’s also Cow Appreciation Day (according to the marketing geniuses at Chik-Fil-A), so a pilgrimage is in order. So, if you see a cow, stop and say “I appreciate you” and go celebrate by eating the flesh of a barnyard compatriot. It’s how the pigs want it.
Anyways – I am confident that I will finish this novel before too long (and by too long I mean before I die). If I can keep up this pace I have been setting, the first draft will be complete by the end of next month, in time for my first vacation, and the various re-writes I know I am going to have to do before ‘Borderlands 2 day’. If all goes well, I should be ready for a winter release. So, it’s never too late to start planning for Christmas! J Other than that, there is nothing worth noting going on here. I was let out of work early, so I got home and was able to watch another program I recorded. I am counting down to the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympic Games and getting updates on the Tour de France. For me this is the best sports month so far, it’s a pity I have to work to enjoy it – but hey, the Olympics are starting and I am going to record a majority of it.
This particular entry may be a little lighter than normal because I didn’t get much sleep – maybe four or five hours at best and the caffeine still has as of yet to kick in. Oh, well. Someone did comment on an earlier post I had about Sci-Fi and I agree – what does wrestling have to do with science fiction? Very little unless it’s part of a movie plot. I can understand on a practical level as far as wrestling makes money for the owners of the channel (Universal/NBC), but they’ve gone away from the sci-fi in the most part. Sorry – I did cover all of this yesterday and I still welcome comments, but I am not the official Sci-Fi channel apologist. They can’t pay me enough to do that, but they can certainly make the attempt.
On completely unrelated news: Steam has started their Summer Sale, which means they are going to get some of my hard earned money… but not as much as previous times. I have to set aside money for artists and advertising for my novel, but I am going to buy a couple of games for the PC. Maybe the Civilization Pack and Magic: The Gathering 2013 to mess around with on the weekends.
Well, I should get to work.
Have fun and make sure you avoid the black cats.
