In case you haven’t been keeping up, weather here in Wisconsin has been pretty darn non-summer/spring-like. In fact, I’d be willing to say they’ve been pretty darn winter-like. But, for the past few weeks (maybe even a month now), things have brightened up. The sun has come out on a few occasions, and my office has finally become the sweat lodge it is supposed (unfortunately) become during the warmer months of the year.
There’s something to be said about sitting in front of a computer, dripping stinky liquids on your keyboard as you attempt to be productive. . . the brain just starts to shut down after a while.
Luckily, I’ve been able to continue to stay rather productive, both at work and life (and writing, for that matter). But, I have been finding myself wishing I had more time available outside, underneath that harsh unforgiving sun, adding to the local humidity with my own perspiration.
So, I’ve found myself getting involved in some heavy duty activity when the time permits. The bike has already had its maiden voyage for the year, complete with weighted down baby-buggy. I’m in the midst of completing our rather large patio destruction/refinishing project (halfway through the refinish portion of the project right now). And, I’ve even managed to find a little time to hide out by one of the local lakes and do a little fishing.
Summer is here and I couldn’t be more excited. Granted, that makes it even more difficult to want to sit in front of the computer and write, when I could be outside injuring my back with large patio blocks. . . but, lucky for all of you, I’ve passed the 10,000 word mark on THE RISE OF THE FAT MOGUL, which means I’ve finally reached the point where I can’t wait to figure out how this book ends. And since I don’t have any ghost writers at my disposal, it means I have to work my butt off to get it finished.
It’s already shaping up to be a lot of fun. I can’t wait to share it all with you!
Have a good one!
