Finished the 2000 words on the November book early. Linda loves it, but I'm worried it is too cute. Easy to write with a sidekick character named Pusifer who is a cat from hell.
Then went out and winterized the house. Have been putting it off forever, because I thought it would be hard. So easy. Did it in a very short time.
So now I'm just goofing off waiting until 3:00 when I will go on my daily drive to write on my Virginia Reed book.
Feeling really relaxed. A bit of money pressure because the store has been slow this month, maybe the first down month in a couple of years. Not sure why. Just means I won't spend quite so much on Christmas product.
Weirdly, my Star Wars toys aren't selling at all. Don't understand that. Not worried about the long run, but I needed to sell at least some of them to relieve the cash flow pressure. Ah, well. We have the money in the bank to cover the shortages.
I don't know what they count as inflation, but everything seems more expensive to me.
Beautiful Bend day. My favorite kind of day. Exactly 60 degrees, the perfect walking weather. I'm sure I'm going to run into crowds out at the Badlands, but I'll just try to find an unoccupied spot.
The writing is just going extraordinarily well. I seem to have immense discipline when it comes to writing. Don't know where that comes from.
Of course, I used to use the same energy at the store, but that was something that couldn't be measured. Books can be measured. So many words written, so many books finished. Prodigious, but it seems to be the way I do things -- all in, or not at all.
