Journal 07-23-2015

Good morning or whatever part of the day it is for you. Today is Thursday, July 23, 2015. Thursday already? The temperature is 69.4°F and the humidity is 83% at 6:29 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 0 mph with gusts of 2.2 mph. It was overcast and quiet when I stuck my head out earlier and still is quite gloomy. Weather Underground is predicting a 0% chance of precipitation and a high of 84° (“cooler than yesterday”) today.

I was feeling out of sorts yesterday. I didn’t take me too long to figure out why. I’ve got a UTI going. It got pretty annoying yesterday. I made it to the doc’s yesterday for antibiotics and all that nonsense. So I’ll be doing that for a week. But at least I’m not dashing to the bathroom every 15 seconds. I should be ready to go back to the gym tomorrow.

Happy with the reception the review of Stephen King’s On Writing has gotten so far at Examiner. I haven’t even linked it to Facebook or Twitter yet. I may be able to shake a few more pennies out of that review yet. Ah, *sigh* and I do mean pennies.

Started a Writer’s Digest book titled Where Do You Get Your Ideas? It was part of a package deal. Man, is it boring! I haven’t even it made it through the introduction yet. What a contrast to Stephen King’s book.

Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Hope the day brings you good things.

Off to write another day—

Writing schedule (again):

1. Spend an hour with Siegfried.

2. Review “Under Water.”

3. Another entry in 30 Day book challenge

&teresaWiza had an article on here on getting ideas for writing. Have seen her around for ages!

She must be working on the great novel. *sigh*

Yes, UTIs are not very pleasant. My wife and I have suffered through a few of these.

No, they weren't pleasant when I was in my 20s. Now that, well, my 20s are in the rearview mirror (along with a lot of other things....) they're even less pleasant, but at least they're easily dealt with.

Hope the antibiotics are helping you to deal with your UTI.I read your review of ''On Writing.' (Examiner). It was to the point.Usually,while reviewing such books the reviewer goes on about his own opinions.I see you have given the book 4 stars which it deserved.All in all a good review.

Still on the a/b, but they've helped quite a bit, thanks. Thanks for reading the Examiner review and for your comments on it. I try not to blather too much there. Thought frankly, for some reason, that review was hard to write. Not quite as hard as the review I'm ignoring at the moment, however.
