Three Day Weekend

I’ve got a three day weekend and I don’t wanna know nothin’.

I don’t care that Kevin Bacon’s new flick Death Sentence sucks ass. I don’t care about David Beckham’s knee. I don’t care whether or not Tony Snow may have cancer. There’s no pro football this weekend, I haven’t watched the races lately, and I’m not much interested in watching the backlog of shows on the DVR (with the possible exception of last night’s Human Weapon showcasing Krav Maga).

I only have a few goals:

  • Go to karate class (done!)
  • Write
  • Grill dinner for the family (soon)
  • Write
  • Practice karate for Tuesday’s stripe review
  • Write
  • Help the Midget practice karate for Tuesday’s stripe review
  • Did I mention write?

More specifically, I want to finish To Rise from the Ashes. My proofreaders, Tod and Troy, have been amazingly patient with this (and slacking on harassing me to finish — heh), as have those of you who have been waiting for me to get it done. I offer no excuses.

Time permitting, or if I get blocked up, I plan to tinker with the scripts to Wounded Gods and maybe even compile my notes for another pitch.

This weekend is mine.

    Get to writing, boy!


  2. Tod says:

    I have been swamped with football lately, but figured I would check in here to see if you had any updates. Glad to see you are planning to work on this over the weekend. I need to grab another cup of coffee and head into work. I will be working on Labor Day as well. Need to start winning some games or I will soon be looking for a real job! Look forward to reading that you have FINISHED the long awaited TO RISE FROM THE ASHES.

    Will it have tits and blood in it? (see latest Hail Saten).

    Troy :-)

    Troy 1: Yes, Sir!

    Tod: I’m on it, man! And good luck with the football team. I’d give you some pointers, but the sum total of my strategic football knowledge is “smash the guy with the ball.” I like watching pro ball, but don’t ask me to sum up a play beyond “the receiver got hit and fumbled like a pussy.”

    Troy 2: Hey, this is me we’re talking about. Of course there’s tits and blood!
