The above photo comes from the public domain abyss of Facebook, and I think it’s hilarious. Of all the 4th of July stuff slathered across the internet this weekend, this one made me laugh, out loud, that is.
I spent the long weekend hunkered down at home. I used the Monday holiday to get some work done (the bill paying work) since I have some out of town travel coming on this Friday, but mostly I spent the weekend at home to write. The target right now is to wrap up the 5th book for release by early December. That’s this coming December, so I have to stay at it and this coming weekend I will be doing zip for writing due to playing with friends instead.
As I’ve mentioned before, the 5th book is called Burnt Mountain When Heroes Fall. I spent the weekend making those heroes fall, and it was a more difficult process than I realized. After writing with some of the same characters, to kill them off in the last book, well, I’d gotten a bit attached it seems. I’d write for an hour or so and have to take a break. Come back to it for another hour, then break again.
So while I’ve had a massively productive writing weekend on the 5th installment, I’m also spent. I’m looking forward to work tomorrow for a change of pace!
So happy indie day/treason day to folks. Have a safe weekend and don’t blow off any digits. If you have pets frightened by fireworks, I’m sorry. I have been blessed with an idiot dog that is oblivious to the sounds of exploding things, but don’t come knock on my door. He will certainly crap himself over that.
