On Having Fun

I'm a regular reader of Dean Wesley Smith's blog. He's always reminding writers to have fun. That's something we all forget. Making up stories is enjoyable. Trying to remind myself of that on a regular basis. 

I did some Black Friday shopping (online) last week. I haven't done Christmas shopping in a mall or big box retail store in 15 years, mainly because I lose patience quickly in stores. Got in 1,000 words the day after Thanksgiving. 

The Third Gray Men book is coming along. Still sitting on the second book because I need to tie some things together in books 2 and 3. I'll probably release them pretty close to one another. Also have a novella I've been holding on to for no good reason. Maybe I'll get that uploaded in the next week. 

I'm shooting for 750-1000 words per day, and right now I'm also typing in some rough copy for what will be Gray Men #3.

Played some guitar over the weekend. Learned some parts to Zep's "Over the Hills and Far Away" that have been eluding me (or I've been avoiding learning). Also worked on "Icky Thump" by The White Stripes.
