Here’s another one from The Life & Times of Ichabod Brooks. I’m finding it difficult to locate the older teasers, so they might all be new. This is a part from Ichabod Brooks & the Orphan’s Shadow. The adventure is him helping to escort some adopted children alongside a rather irritable guard captain. As usual, things don’t got as planned for Mr. Brooks. Enjoy and feel free to check out the rest of his adventures.

This might be short because nothing really happened beyond work and puzzles. By the time I get home, I’m exhausted. This week started the pool trips, but we had one rained out. There was also a trip to an amusement park. Geez, I’m having a lot of trouble being coherent and thinking clearly. Good thing I’m not trying to write any stories this summer like I’d planned. The puzzles are keeping my brain active and helping me relax from a busy day, but the heat and sun are brutal.
Okay, I think I’m ending this post fairly early. On the trip yesterday, I was one of the people waiting with the kids who didn’t want to go on the rides. Not much shade in some of the areas. I didn’t bring my water jug either because it’s kind of clunky to carry around and I didn’t know if I’d be going on rides until I got to work. So, I didn’t get much water and I realized that I’d reached a point where I couldn’t sweat. Hydrated as best as I could, but I came home to find that the freezer wasn’t working right and we lost all of our ice. My seltzers and the water bottles are kept in a room that gets really warm. So, I tried my best to gradually hydrate myself, but I was also dead on my feet. This morning I have a heavy head and my coordination is off. You have no idea how many typos I’ve done here and I kept dropping puzzle pieces last night. Looking at them now, my hands are still shaking a bit. This is the father/son outing day too, but I should be able to relax tomorrow since my parents might take my son to the pool.
Speaking of my son, he had his first (and hopefully last) cavity filling this week. He did great and he won a raffle at camp for an Icee gift certificate. He was a trooper through the week since it was hot for him too. I think there was more, but my head is starting to feel heavier. Think I’m out. Here’s the list:
- Find shade!
P.S.- There is no way for me to get any writing done at work or even at home now. This is frustrating. I’m either too busy or too exhausted. Maybe I’ll do some notebook work tomorrow when I’m resting or next weekend. One plus side here is that my brain is so frazzled that I can start editing War of Nytefall: Eradication once camp ends and it’ll be like I’ve never seen it before. Maybe I’ll get lucky and be able to do a Christmas release?
