I am not sure where this keeps coming from, but it sure is annoying. My categories should read, Dailies, Music, Writing, Writing Random and Weekly Columns, but for some reason I do not understand the #1 keeps popping back in there. It is not a category I have made and I have moved posts away from it. I accidentally deleted a few posts last week trying to get rid of it! Is it some strange number stalker, or is it some freakish glitch that I don’t have any idea how to remove?
I have my boys this week, always a combination of joy and confusion. My oldest has just hit puberty and boy let me tell you, moody is not a good word. He needs his head cracked a few times of late. This morning he went off a bit about shirts and jeans, and socks… that were still lying on the couch because he had not put them up. Well he now has a few extra chores for his outburst this morning. It was not a complete meltdown, but he was slinging words he had no right to be swinging.
I had my first rejection from a contest yesterday. I was quite pleased with my story, however it still felt short. Perhaps with a bit more tweaking I can get it to read a bit better. My first novel is still sitting in edit phase while I write a few more notes on the second book. Another long story is being slowly developed while I have a few shorts that hang about.
My first month of writing a column for the paper is going well. Yesterday I had two people tell me that they liked what I had wrote. This week will be my fifth column. I don’t have many idea on what to write for next week, but it will come to me later.
