Song mood: Video Killed the Radio Star by the Buggles.
I’m not sure what story I’m writing. Although I am editing the novella that I wrote this year. Initial process is to run the sections through my editing software. Then pasting the sections into the word document that is formated for print. So I can see first hand how it will look like. I thought I put all sections in the order I wanted but found one out of sequence. Upon reading I may find it was in the right sequence.
My idea or current philosophy on editing is I will read it and correct it until it reads like a story I want to read. Currently the title is ‘The Castle of the Dark Prince.’ My current realization is that I write things and find excuses not to do anything further, not to edit, not to seek publication or self-publication because it’s not good enough. So I need to work with these projects and get them as good as I can get them, self-publish, and move on to the next project. The idea is to get as many stories written as I can.
Tomorrow, all my ebooks will be free on Amazon for five days.
I’m currently listening to A Legacy of Spies by John Le Carré. It took me about three and half hours to surpass where I had left off on visually reading it. I’m thoroughly enjoying it. Inspector Mendel has a few more lines than he usually does in a Le Carré novel.
I’m currently reading Last Stand in Lychford by Paul Cornell in ebook format. The fifth and final book of the series. At some point I will buy the print book so that I have the complete set. He wrote a previous series called the Shadow Police series, which has a few of the same motifs. So I foresee myself listening or reading that series in the future. He was actually working on finishing that series when the Lychford series took off.
Today is the twenty-fifth day without shaving, and my beard was itchy for a bit and then I was fine. I haven’t decided if I will try another month or two without shaving so that I can have a full beard or not. I have never been able to grow out a beard before.
So tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I am making guacamole.
I need to decide what I’m going to do for winter exercise. I know I should buy a rowing machine to build my core muscles.
Tomorrow will be watching movies, spending time with family and reading the Lychford book when I get a chance.
