May 10 – Slogging Along

Today was Taco Thursday. I know. I know. But Thursday is our breakfast taco day because the ones we like are on special on Thursday! I got them earlier than normal because my wife had to go into work earlier than normal. That doesn’t mean that I got my devotional finished earlier than normal, though. I didn’t finish until about 10:00 and then it was time to get ready to go to tutoring. It was my last day and I wanted to give the kids something. I picked up pencils, then discovered I didn’t have enough. So, after I finished, I had to get a few more and take them back to the kids. The teachers at this school are amazing and gracious  They gave me a very generous gift card for a meal out with my wife. Kindergartners are much different from middle schoolers, and I really enjoy working with them.

Then, we had difficulty making dinner plans, long story, so we ran a couple of errands with dinner in between. Then, I had time to write. I got my writing challenge done, then played some Splatoon. Don’t judge me, I needed the break.

April 18 – Moldy Molasses

When I was in High School, I played in the band. I can’t tell you how many times I heard the director say to the whole band something like, “That piece is supposed to be lively. You folks made it sound like moldy molasses.” That’s how my writing flowed today. The devotional went fine, 581 words. Then, after doing a few things around the house, I started trying to work on a piece I’m trying to submit to an anthology on Time Travel. I had gotten some notes back from an editor, and as I tried to incorporate them, nothing flowed. I wrote enough words to cover my challenge, barely, and left it til tomorrow because … well … because.

While dealing with the writer’s block, I read some more of the Venom Protocols and of God Dreams. I also played Splatoon, trying to free my mind. Have I told you that I’m not a gamer? Anyway, I finished the writing after church and watched my daughter play Splatoon the way it’s supposed to be played.
