Sunday Update - Week 45

Well, once again it's Sunday.  Another week flying by without a great deal to show for it.  But, even so, it wasn't like there was nothing to show for it, so here goes...

I actually sat down with my handy dandy red pen and notebook, and wrote words last night.  Writing by hand is kind of a bear, so it wasn't a lot of words, but it's a start.  I really need to think of a title for this, but right now, it's Dennis Haggarty #3.  I'm pretty pleased with what I put down on paper.  We'll get that transferred to the computer sometime soon and then type in earnest.

As for the above, I have the beginning and the general gist, but I have no clue where the path will lead, who the killer will be, or how Dennis will stop him/her/it.

In reading news, I finished Silver James' The Sound of Silence.  It was wicked awesome!  And I read the 7th book in SL Viehl's StarDoc series - Plague of Memory.  It was the last of my unread books in that 10 book series.  Now that I'm reading them in order, the 8th book should make more sense.  I remember being really confused when I started that one - because there are things that happen in #6 and #7 that are kind of game changers. 

I went fishing 6 times last week - over 5 days.  And I went yesterday.  Nothing to really brag about.  Hopefully I'll catch something big soon.  Another 22" walleye like last November would be awesome.

We had a fox in the yard.  In case you don't follow me on FB (or don't do FB), here are the two pictures that turned out:

We also had turkeys in the yard for the first time in months.  A rafter of 8 hens has been stopping by for corn and acorns. 

In other nature news, firearm deer hunting season started yesterday.  Keep your fingers crossed our deer make it through without becoming someone's dinner.  And for the record, I have no problems with hunting - as long as it's done responsibly and legally.  Poachers should have a special place reserved for them in hell.  Jus' sayin'.

I also got my shot last week, so I should be sane for another 3 months.  (For varying definitions of sane. LOL)

And that's about it for me this week.  How's things with you?


  1. I'm recovering from massive energy expenditures on Friday and Saturday. Frying 40 lbs of hamburger takes a toll on wrists, forearms and elbow. :/ Still, I'd do it all over again. We didn't have a huge turnout but we fed some veterans and their families and the left overs that were "fresh" was donated to a church food bank for distribution this week.

    I'm behind on my word count but I think maybe the time away is good. Hopefully, I'll have some insight to where things are and need to go with this massive rewrite. I'm almost to the point where I can incorporate some of the previously written words because I still want certain scenes to happen. We'll see what I accomplish today.

    That's pretty much been my life. Words. Deadlines. Ugh. Go fishing. And way cool about the fox! I'd trade your fox for my skunk.

  2. Yay for words! I'm a compulsive outliner, so starting with so little is astonishing to me.

    Love, love the fox photos! Of course, I adore foxes in any form. We don't have them down here, as far as I know, just coyotes and Mexican wolves. Those are pretty cool, too. :-)

    I just finished page 34 in DWL. Almost 12,000 words, I think. Good thing I'm not doing NaNo. LOL!
