This will be a bad week for content on my site. I know I usually do my bitching for the first part then talk about what is happening with the site and content but this week I will be very busy, and that will slow the content down. Today I had 44 stops and tomorrow I will do two runs adding up to 60 to 70 stops. All those stops take time, and that is the time I won’t have for my writing, but I need to make money, and the only way I can is with more deliveries. Wow, I guess I am going to bitch in this paragraph. If everything goes well then, I should be back to a sort of normal by Wednesday or Thursday and this weekend. I will try and get ahead with the writing I still have a goal I set way back when I started this of 1500 to 2000 words a day I just don’t know if I can do it.
This was the perfect delivery day, cool with plenty of sunshine and no school zones with school out for the year. I had 44 stops with 46 packages spread across the construction zone that his Medina, Ohio. I love Medina, but if you are going to funnel the traffic of a major road to another major road, then you should do something to help the flow of traffic (maybe a portable light at Huffman and Fenn?). Ok enough of that….
Thank you for your time.
They say it should rain today, but should I believe them? I cut my grass a little too short on last Tuesday because they said it would downpour for the next three days then maybe a brief shower and nothing. The weeds are taking over the browning yard, and I just look foolish. I also used bags of my deliveries because of the rain that didn’t happen. It sounds petty, but I paid for those bags (company too cheap to supply good bags that fit the packages). I know boo ho boo ho angry old white man bemoaning his lot in life. One he made for himself, OK I’ll stop now.
I am getting part two of chapter two ready to post. Janice takes on a client that has a tie into Bill’s past. This case will add a layer to the story that while connecting to another case also has its own twist. It also ties into another short story I wrote and reworked last month called Defending the Bell Ringer, but it is just a thin connection one that doesn’t mean you have to go and read that story to understand the plot. As of right now if I had to subtitle Book one, it could be The Story of Bill and Janice with each chapter having something to do with each other’s past. If I get to book two, then it will cover JG and Sean’s connections with Janice. I will, however, keep hinting at how they are connected in the first book. More to come….
Thank you for your time.
