I know posting much today or tomorrow will fall on deaf ears.  Things have been slowing to a crawl in general, but I’m a glutton for yelling into the void.  Honestly, echoes are fine as long as they aren’t replying to you.  Then you have to search the room for listening devices.  Where was I?

By the way, I’ve learned that Kindle Countdowns and Permafree books don’t always (or ever?) go beyond Amazon’s US/main site.  So, I’m sorry that the sales and cheap prices don’t transfer.  Haven’t figured out how to do it without incurring the wrath of the almighty Zon.  I’m surprised the Kindle Countdowns don’t do it though since that feels like something that would transfer to the other sites.

The kid and the wife are on vacation until January 3rd.  So we have a full house and I’ll be here or there.  Weather will determine outings, but there are plenty of presents to be had for the little guy.  This includes a 940 piece Lego set that we’ll work on.  I see we, but he tends to put the figures together and they go off on adventures while I finish.  Today’s gift was a Batman vs Superman set, so the three of them went off to fight bad guys within 5 minutes.  Although, I’ll admit that I enjoy putting the sets together.  Just always pray he doesn’t try to make them actually fly or drive into things.

Writing happened this week to some extent.  The characters, gear, and plots have been set up for the Ichabod stories.  They range from 5 to 9 sections, which should take me most of February to write up.  So we’re looking at short stories instead of micro/flash fiction.  I won’t really know until I start the writing.  This is going to be working like pulp fiction, so I get to keep things simple and entertaining.  I started working on characters for the 3rd Bedlam book even though #2 isn’t out yet.  That will probably be my on/off project while the house is busy.

My January goal is nothing more than prep Bedlam 3 and ‘The Nightfall War’ . . . or was it ‘War of Nightfall’?  I’m far too lazy right now to search for that notebook, but it’s the Dawn Fang series.  Next year is going to be so weird with me not knowing what or if I should work on another series.  Ichabod, Dawn, and Bedlam are different.  Ichabod will come and go from time to time.  Bedlam is my destressing one and is already active.  Dawn is October on the blog.  Even having 3 books left of Legends of Windemere isn’t that big since they’re all in first draft.  This feels like something left for next week’s final goal post of 2016.  I’ll leave it for that then.

Question: Is there any point in posting tomorrow or should I save the ‘interactive’ post for Thursday?

Goals for the week?

  1. Time with family.
  2. Character creation at night.
  3. Get a little more sleep.
  4. Don’t use the bike because it won’t go well with a full house.
  5. See Rogue One.
  6. LEGOS!
  7. Finish getting through the ‘American Gothic’ DVD boxset.  This is the 1990’s show and the episode order on the DVDs is a mess.  Need to use a checklist and jump around to get the order right.  I’m finishing it completely out of stubbornness and spite at this point.
  8. Sneak in episodes of ‘Supernatural’ when I have non-kid time.  Already cut it rather close with him barging into the room.
  9. Put a video at the end of this post.

'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. Happy , happy. Sounds like fun times.


  2. I think everyone is going to be busy. I posted my “Christmas Card” and don’t intend another post until at least Monday. I’m lurking in the shadows as time, grandchildren, and dogs allow. I managed to write a baseball micro-fiction today. It isn’t great as a stand alone, but weaves into the overarching story of the book pretty well. I also got my stuff out to Chris Graham, and so I’m feeling like I accomplished some things.
