Still here, still working it. Been busy doing a hell lot of writing, just not here at the Hard Way. Sorry 'bout that. Well, not really- more important things afoot here in the 'burg. I'll lay it out below.

Here's the breakdown for a typical weekday: Go to work, rush through business stuff and start writing (my job is flexible at this slow time of the year). Write/work/write work all day long. Work day ends at five, stay and write till seven- seven thirty. Go home, walk Rocky the geezer mutt, get a workout in and maybe do a little reading before off to bed.

Weekends are a little different. My wife works full time and is completing her Masters program. We've always split household chores, but now it's shifted to my hands about 99% of the time. No big deal- she'll get to support me when I'm an old fart with leaky plumbing. I take care of domestic duties weekday evenings and half a day on Saturday, give or take. When I'm through with that humdrum business, I try to get in about six hours writing on Saturday and a couple on Sunday. Suffice to say, my yard resembles your yard and that just ain't good.

I did manage to sneak in a movie(s) this weekend. I watched all three of the Red Riding trilogy: 74, 80, 83. Good stuff- check 'em out.

There you go. In a nutshell it's what I've been up to for the last month or so. If I got time to write, I'm working on my book or fiddling with a short story or two. My only regret, is missing out on some of the work by the new friends I've made over the past year. But they're cool. They get what I'm working toward.

Till next time...
