Challenge Tonight Forced Me To Write a Story…
No chance in hell would I have written and finished a story tonight without the challenge. I wouldn’t even have gone to my writing computer. You see, I became a real person for a short time today, actually took five hours off of computers and publishing and writing and placed my old body on my couch and watched an entire football game, with yelling and everything that bothered Kris’s writing upstairs.
If you didn’t yell at the Raiders/Chargers game today, you don’t know football or have died a few days ago and no one has buried you yet.
Kris even came down just as the regulation ended in a tie, sort of miffed at my yelling, and was yelling at the screen as well in short order.
Basically it was a five hour roller coaster ride.
And the poor folks in Pittsburg. Wow, the drinking there will be something because if the game here had ended in a tie, the fine folks in Pittsburg would have missed the playoffs.
And it came down to two seconds from ending of overtime as a tie. And if the field goal by the Raiders had been missed in those final two seconds, it would have ended in a tie.
A totally nuts last game of the regular season, maybe one of the best I have ever watched. I can’t even imagine what it was like to be in a major sports book around town during the game.
So I had to get steps after the game, got those, and Kris and I watched a show together, so even though I have about a billion things left undone, I went to my writing computer at 11:30 tonight.
By 1:30 a.m. and two breaks, I had finished a 2,450 word short story in my Seeders Universe. The 9th story in a row.
So besides recording some stuff this morning, working a little on the coming Kickstarter, I felt like I took the day off. Haven’t done that sort of thing in years. Must be caused by me getting older. (grin)
Here is the prelaunch page. We hope to launch at noon on Tuesday. More about it tomorrow night.
