Challenge,  On Writing,  publishing

Holiday Monday

No Real Holiday, Just Same Old

Started the day off by walking out to the south store. A little over two miles is all and a nice walk. I wanted to see how my knee did on hills and it was fine. I can still feel it a little, but not too bad, so on the mend.

Our van was at the south store since Billy and Cameron had used it for to haul stuff to a swap meet. I went from there to pick up our north store manager, Josh, and we went and got a new display case I had bought for the north store.

Then I stayed at WMG and worked on workshop stuff until late, home to cook dinner and do workshop stuff, then I spent some time with the new cats, who are doing great as well.

I managed only one session on the novel tonight for 1,100. I feel like I have been working on this book forever. Not like me at all.
