    Hi folks

    Another day at the funhouse is over.

    Hope everybody is doing well, or at least getting some writing done. I hope to get a bunch done tonight.

    I guess we're fun. Sometimes.


    No writing for me tonight. Maybe, *maybe* a little tomorrow.

    Hope you're productive tonight, Ted.

    Yay, you go Ted! Happy writing to you!

    I think tonight for me will be movie night, tomorrow night I'll see what I can accomplish in other things. I just can't seem to get into the spirit of writing lately. I may concentrate on my artwork for a while.

    Artwork is good. I'm struggling to avoid distractions, like Ghost Adventures and the Dead Files. Even though I can't stand Zac Bagans and every episode I watch I keep hoping he gets gang-possessed by a bunch of spirits until he cries for his mommy.

    Anything creative, right? You'll get back into writing when you're ready, Night.


    I'm watching the Amazing Spider-Man. It's terrible.
    And market shopping on Duotrope.

    I'm munching on dinner and surfing. It takes me a bit to get work out of my head.

    I wish I had a 3-day weekend. My company doesn't believe in those.

    I have, in the past, left work and found myself at a shooting range. Once there I dissipated my stress by expensively punching .45" holes in paper.

    But, at my current job, I have a diminished sense of self worth and I sometime (especially after I've been written up, again, for bullshit reasons) find that I have no interest in any of my hobbies and find that my only hope is in winning a massive lottery.

    I fucking hate my job.

    I used to think the lottery was for me. Now I just figure I can write my way of out this. Seriously, I think fate has lined up only one scenario and it is me writing until I can be a pro full-time.

    I kind of alter between writing, drawing, and reading. Sometimes I do them during the same period of time, but usually it's one or the other.

    This, except replace butt with feet and back.

    I'm thinking the same thing, but leaning more to the art side, I don't think I'm a very good writer and probably won't make it that way.

    What up, y'all?

    Currently kickin' it at VA Beach's second annual "Blood at the Beach" horror con. I got to meet Zack Ward, Anthony Micheal Hall, Verne Troyer, Alex Winter and Jack Ketchum whom I completely flailed over (although not as badly as I probably could have, at least I hope not).

    I will blog in greater detail about this at the end of the day.

    See ya!

    I could take pics with my phone I guess, but most of the celebs are charging for photos, even if you use your own camera. I know, it sounds like an excuse, but that's just how it's going.
