A day off

I managed about 1500 words today on The Enhanced League. I could have finished the first draft, but I had some other commitments. I wrote one complete micro, and it needs a bit of something. I also started the last short story. I will add one more micro after the short, and may include another anthem piece. The anthem would allow me to talk about the Hot Stove season without spending a bunch of time on it.

I had to finalize next week's Lisa Burton Radio, and get it scheduled. I also have a fun guest appearance of my own where I get to be a castaway. These things take time too, and they're important. I want to do a good job for my guests and my hosts, and didn't want to take shortcuts with any of it.

I tried to participate in the Rave Reviews Book Club's “Pay it Forward” day. I believe in paying it forward, and sent out quite a few tweets using #RRBC, and made my own hashtag #RRBCPIF – you know, just in case it helps. I don't know if anyone else picked it up, but it's out there now.

Beyond that, there was a bunch of Otto time. I may need Tommy John surgery after all the throwing I've been doing. He's a ball playing boy.

He actually watched the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on television. I've had dogs who notice the TV before, but he watched the show. He seems to get more excited over the white dogs. I decided this could be because he can see them better, but he could be one of those guys who prefers blondes too.

I posted a couple photos on the Entertaining Stories Facebook page. People love Otto photos, and my FB page could use more traffic so I tend to post them there. Here's a link, just in case you need it.

There you have it. Dabbling mostly, working toward the end of the Enhanced League season, while looking forward to the MLB actual season. Blog work, plus some puppy time, and that was my day. Back to the grind tomorrow.

  2. Funny that he’s watching the TV. I know people who would take advantage of that and turn the show on whenever they needed to get work done. Doesn’t seem right to do to a dog though. Really curious what the ‘Hot Stove season’ is.

  3. Good job today. Sounds like Otto could judge the show. A Boxer won the working dog category. Almost never happens.

  4. That was a super productive day. I don’t know how you do it. Otto cracks me up. Kinda makes me want to be on Facebook, just to keep up with his antics. Blondes, huh?

    I think, we, sometimes, need to allow ourselves the luxury of writing only a dozen words or less, without feeling guilty. Otherwise writing is a punishment, not a pleasure, in my opinion.

  7. Glad you made progress! And I had a laugh over Otto liking blondes ๐Ÿ™‚
    My cat becomes entranced with the TV too and will sit in front of it, watching. I think it’s the fact that TVs are big screens now with such high resolution it makes everything seem so lifelike.
    Loved the vid on the FB page too!
