The Journal, Thursday, 7/13

Hey Folks,

Wow. Again today I almost forgot to even start this Journal entry, much less post it. Not sure what’s up with that.

I carried my new portable swamp cooler out to the Hovel, added water and fired it up. The thing works. It cooled the Hovel from arounf 94 down to 80 in about 15 minutes. Very comfortable.

I have a very good topic for you that I stumbled across during the current edit. I started the Journal entry too late to include it today, but I’ll put it in here soon.

Today, and Writing

Today I’m pressing through on an edit. The story, even though it isn’t in my favorite genre, is very good. And the storyteller is very gooder, so there isn’t really a down side. (grin)

My own writing is still in the back of my mind. I’m not panicked at all. I know it’ll kick in when it’s ready to kick in. So I just keep running ideas through my head, writing down the ones that strike me as really interesting.

Back tomorrow.
