Card Sharp Silver… Day 14

Ramping Back Up…

The day was swallowed by a ton of detail stuff, mostly business.

Made it to this computer around 11 am and did email and some details on this web site fixes. Also some work on the Cats Bundle (see below) and some work on the Cave Creek Kickstarter, which ended successfully. Yeah! And thank you, everyone, for supporting that project. I promise it will be some fun. And surveys will go out soon.

Then Kris and I headed out around 1 pm for a long walk (about four miles total) to run an errand and then picked up take-out lunch on the way back. A ton of people out walking, almost no cars. So when another couple approached on the sidewalk, we went out into the street or they did. This distancing thing is interesting.

So after lunch I had a quick nap, then back on business stuff. That swallowed the rest of my afternoon and by 6 pm I took another short nap, then cooked dinner and watched an episode of a show called For All Mankind which is a Ron Moore show. Alternate history. No spoilers or comments, please, we are only on the second episode. Considering I was 18 and trying to stay out of Vietnam when all the first events of this show happened, it was tense. Or actual history of this show’s alternate history.

Evening was more business, another walk for steps around the building, then a ton of work on workshops.

So finally, at 11:45, after watching a show and the local news, I made it to the writing computer for the first time in two days.

Slow start because I had to cycle back a few thousand words to get the book back in my head, but once I did that I managed about another thousand words before coming to write this blog.

So back writing. I thought for a bit it might take a day or so. As we all know, this world is nuts right now. I’m having no issue writing, just scary busy so not giving the writing time, but I think that is finally ending. We shall see tomorrow. (grin)

And don’t forget to grab the Storybundle/cats that Kris put together, or if nothing else follow her posts about it on Facebook. She is using our two cats in all kinds of situations.

And make sure you read her business blog this week about taking care of yourself. A great one.
