Daily Update: Still no ducks ready for prime time
There are some days I feel like I’m letting things slip a little. I’ve become too focused on the writing and letting little things pass by that are becoming bigger things. This weekend I’m going to remedy some of those personal items and get them taken care of.
Next weekend It will be vacation time. There will be no time for writing so I will be writing as much as I can before that. I’m currently 59,000 words ahead of schedule for the year so I’m not worried about the annual goal, but I’m 3000 words behind on my JuNoWriMo goal and I want to stay close on that one before we go on vacation. I’ll be knocking out some words tonight. I’m about to write another Maus chapter (those go so fast) and another Slick chapter (now that he’s met Maus and Willie those will go smoothly as well). I know I’ll be able to knock out a lot of words.
I’m also going to be revamping my father’s webpage. It looked good when I first did it, but I know I can slap a new coat of paint on it and make it look a little better. I’ll be putting some jQuery on it and I’ll drop a link when I’m done. I’m also going to revamp a website for my aunt’s business. She’s been telling me for years that she’s going to get someone to do it, but she hasn’t so I’ll build a new site, host it, and send her a link to see if she likes it. It’ll be fun to do some basic web design for a change instead of massive web applications that take months to complete.
My Favorite Daughter also needs to work out today. We’ll run, practice some volleyball, do some light weights, and she has a conditioning sheet of exercises to do. All that and she’s studying for finals. Next week she has three days of finals and she’s done with the 9th grade. They grow up way too fast.
Last night we went to dinner with the Millicans. We went to the buffet at the Barona Casino. They do have the best buffet in San Diego. I ate until they needed to roll me out of the joint. With all that food I had some crazy dreams last night and I think it was a combination of the upcoming vacation with my wife’s family and some illnesses that have been going on. I slept in this morning and tried to finish my dream, but the dog was having none of that. She saw me open my eyes and it was play time. It was a very personal dream or I’d share the details here.
So I’ve got a lot going on and a lot to do today. I’ll keep you posted on how it all goes.
I’m done hating on Prometheus. It was a great visual movie. The first half with David was brilliant. There were a lot of good things about the movie that I wish had followed through to the end, but hey, it’s a movie. I’m not going to spend the rest of my life hating on it. Just like Avatar. Maybe they’ll write a better sequel. We’ll just have to wait and see.
All this and I have duck pictures to download. I’d better get at it. I plan on have a month of pictures and a month of writing prompts before I get those out into the wild. Those will be out on a daily basis just to get a little more content out there. I’m also working on a new weekly article. Got something besides ducks or writing you’d like me to talk about? Let me know! I’d love to hear from you.
