As I mentioned in a previous post, I’ve set a goal for myself to write 500 words a day. The pathetic-ness of this word count goal is a direct result of current life obligations, and was chosen to be an easy “gimme,” if you will. Something I could spit out even after 8+ hours of mental flogging at my Job, and while half asleep because my phone won’t quit ringing at 7 AM because of stupid, inconsiderate East Coast clients.

GAH! Freaking again! I bought the most recent book in a series I’ve been following over the past year or two, because while I was not really a fan of the 3rd one, the first two were good enough to earn a one-time pass on that singular piece of disappointment. And the book is good. I’ve been mostly enjoying the characters, though it’s been fairly predictable and I’m not particularly interested in the main setting. Still, it’s been a fun read so far. And though I saw the red
