Hooray for holiday weekends!!!

I LOVE three-day weekends!!! They're like unicorns in my line of work: rarely happen, and a miracle to boot. :D The fact I have this entire weekend off is just awesome, and slightly unnerving. BUT I'll take it!! The Dude is down for the weekend too which is so awesome! Right now he's helping his brother and dad with some car stuff while I do some writing here at Panera. Got a new idea for a story, VERY different than my normal stuff, that's for sure!! Much darker too, and a bit hard to write; a lot of actiony sequences and tough concepts, etc. Dunno if I'll finish it, or whether I'll even publish it when it's done, but I want to write it for now anyway.

As hard as it is to admit, I can no longer write to music or othe distractions. :( :( I've got a lot of noise here in Panera, including a boy who can't be more than 12 carrying on a surprisingly adult conversation (not adult content, but he's one very articulate kid!) that's distracting me as all I can see is a tiny Doogie Howser MD. ;)

On the self-publishing front I uploaded another book, a compilation of short stories. Weirdly enough I've gotten no sales whatsoever on Amazon but have been doing steady work with B&N and Smashwords. It's odd as those are usually the slow ones and Amazon is the biggie - dunno what's up. *shrug*

Right now I have ear-buds in, listening to I think Evanescence live music on Pandora (yup, it's "Bring Me To Life") to keep out genius-level tyke at the next table. Difficult to write to it, but less difficult than when I'm listening to the kid and trying not to stare - it's like seeing a 3-year old carry on regular conversations. The kid's really smart!

Aaaaaaand, that family just left. Maybe now I'll get some real writing done, all I want to do is finish this first scene today (preferably two) then I can hang out with the Dude free of writers-guilt. :)

That is really helpful. It provided me a number of ideas and I'll be placing them on my web site eventually. I'm bookmarking your blog and I'll be back. Thanks again!
