I will keep you in the loop as to what happens when it happens but I have much to do.

I bought this antifreeze from a homeless lady in a wheelchair. Ichronic, but I had just replaced my thermostat and serpentine belt. Well, antifreeze can be anywhere from $10.00 – $16.00.
Allow me to back up: So, this lady in a wheelchair is staring so I smile and wave. Well, next thing you know I’m rolling down my window to engage in conversation with her. She displays a few items she had recently stumbled across from a near by dumpster. One of the items being antifreeze. I really didn’t need the Walkman or the the carb cleaner.
“What about the antifreeze? Look! Its not open, see the cap. Never been opened. I just found it in the dumpster.” She reminds me.
“How much?” I reply.
“Hell, I dont know? Two bucks.” she, eager to move the goods. Well, for two bucks I scored! As I thumb through my wallet I extend a ten spot. She starts crying.
“God bless you.” she overcome with emotions. It was kind of a beautiful moment.
“Have a good day!” I reply and drive away, all smiles. I felt good, and was Glad I could help her out. And the coolant for ten bucks is a fair bargain….
Today I went to refill my radiator reservoir tank and popped off the cap of the antifreeze; to no avail. It was filled with water! LOL. I smiled!
Hello. I’m getting back into the rhythm, but things keep distracting me. And I grow to dislike distractions. The wife, ‘it is healthy to interact with people and friends.’ I agree but not when you have crazy momentum on a project. So, this means goodbye everyone! I’m sorry its not you its me. If I’m not looking at a screen and hoovering a keyboard I might as well be naked on some street corner midday. As to the business madness….I loath it! I have a publicist who acts like a publicist. And a potential literary manager that I may indeed entertain a more traditional approach. I dont know what to do? This person says this. This person says this, and these people say this. I guess all of these are good problems and by no means am I complaining….its just I never really cared about making millions and becoming the next big anything. In fact, my original idea was to give my books away for free and have people donate what they feel they are worth. Call me crazy.. But came to understand that if I dont place value on something most people wont either(sad face). So…I know nothing! I’m just going work until I cant work anymore and then work harder! Maybe someday someone will stop by my place and I’m eighty years old sitting on a pile of MS that one would need a legend or code to decipher. Not really. Just need to go underground to flesh out this concept. Stay hungry! Dont talk about what you want to do or are going to do; DO IT! I’m out!
“Your change is $11.73.” Someone says.
“That’s weird”….(pause, while looking surprised.) “The year I was born.” You say as if to yourself.
“Your change is $1.89.” Someone says.
“I’m sorry,” interrupting
“Would it be possible to get that in pennies….”
I am ripping up this keyboard and loving it! I so didn’t expect this to happen. Also, sorry about yesterdays post; I was a bit excited! Well, a new idea has presented itself and overtaken me! I have to say I haven’t been this excited about a story since Dimensia! Yesterday i believe I made a comment (Which I deleted. Too honest perhaps.) about beyond creative. Well, it may not be…but it is very creative! Its a nice change of pace pertaining to content. Very-very-very-happy! I should be able to produce the first completed first draft by tonight. And if I dont sleep or eat etc. I might be able to have either a novella or novel (at the pace I’m going) in two weeks! Which as of last Friday…this was not even an idea much less….well…what it is!!!
It seems I need to shave and shower. So the book has crossed a few hands and is on its flight….Not sure exactly what that might entail? I planned on self publishing….Well, I still am…but might be entertaining a few new alternatives. (Deep Breath.) Its seriously kinda crazy! Again, I strongly advise anyone who ever dreamed to dream. Well, act on their dreams that is. If you would have told me six years ago I would be a writer I would have asked you where I can get some of that crack your smoking. However unlikely, its pretty amazing doing what you love. Maybe it will work out maybe it wont? Either way it feels great! I’m just taking it a day at a time otherwise I would get lost in my head and actually go crazy – its a slippery slope. Someday perhaps? But for the time being, I’m going to stick around and continue dreaming! Smile. Much-love. Until again.
Bare with me. This is why i shouldn’t post anything until its ready to go….I got a little excited! I’m crazy….and need to focus on telling the story and leaving my opinions out of it! So…dont give up on me!
