Good morning or whatever part of the day it is for you. Today is Monday April 6, 2015. The temperature is 56.2°F and the humidity is 80% at 5:11 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 1.6 with gusts of 3.1 mph. The sky is mostly with some clouds along the horizon, but saw the Big Dipper and the moon heading toward the neighbors’ roof. Weather Underground is predicting a1 0% chance of precipitation and a high of 67 today. That’s more like it.

Well, I accomplished absolutely no writing yesterday and very little the day before. We went to the Renaissance Faire, which is about an hour’s drive. We usually stay all day. Had some beautiful horses at the joust. Most of them as far as I could see, were trained without bits.

Ate some naughty things including a root beer float. It was worth it.

The nice lady from the critique group accepted me based on the beginning of my self-published short story. She actually asked to see the rest of it. I sent it along. The first meeting is this coming Thursday. What they require is six copies 12-14 pages of work, double spaced. I think I’ll bring a section of the novel that I’ve working on forever and a day. I’d bring the beginning, but I’ve recently discovered it’s boring and have decided to rework it.

With regard to walking, I did 4.78 miles yesterday, bringing my total to 8.35 miles, which leaves me with a mere 91.65 miles to go in the Challenge, with idea of walking 100milesin90days.

Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy.

So. Writing schedule. Do all stuff I’ve been wanting to do for a couple of days now:

1. Review The Ancient Mesopotamian City by Marc Van De Mieroop for Examiner

2. Continue Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil .

3. Spend an hour with Siegfried.

4. Review the selection of classical Greek poetry.

5. Review “Martians Never Die”

I would consider root beer float as a luxury. I love it.

Great to see you working on your writings. I can't wait to read some of your works. Please keep my informed.

emoticon :smile: Well, I do, too. But it's not something one can have everyday, sadly.

Thanks, ChickJ . I might have to alert the AP if I ever finish this book. emoticon :smile:

I have never heard of root beer float but would be willing to try it!!

You must have had it but perhaps under another name. Root beer or other soda with ice cream. If you really want to rack up the sin, put chocolate syrup, whipped cream, nuts or a maraschino cherry on top of it. Depends on what circle of the bad place you want to burn in. By "bad place" I mean "gym," of course.

Sorry! Never had it ! I'm a purist! Red Wine is my crime...
