Wintery Update



Hey Space Cadets, how are you doing today?  I’m doing good, a slight delay on Operation Breakout, but I still hope to finish it before the end of the month.  I plan on doubling down now that my wife is back in college after the holiday break.  Taking advantage of the quiet during the day will be my sweet spot, or at least I hope it will.  I took advantage of the snowy weather we’ve had and played with my sons.  Snowball fights, hot chocolate, the usual wintery goodness.  Here’s hoping I can get back on track real fast and in a hurry like.


As an update from yesterday’s post, I also managed to go for a walk this morning!!  I took a half mile circle around the lake behind my house and enjoyed the serenity of what passes as nature in suburbia.  Someday I would love a more rural setting, but I need to be close to the VA hospital, and my wife enjoys the malls a bit too much for life in the sticks.  I love the idea of waking up to a view, letting the surroundings serve as inspiration.  Obviously, upkeep would be an issue but I hear they have riding lawnmowers these days so maybe I can convince the War Department?  Who knows, but I can at least try!

As you can see, the walk was both scenic and saddening.  I can’t stand to see this litter everywhere and when my back is up to it, I carry a trash bag to pick up what I can.  Litters beware, Big Sarge is watching you!  Anyway, I need to keep this blog short because I need to get back to work but I didn’t want to get out of the habit of my daily blogs so I figured a quick update was in order.  Tomorrow I’ll post an interview with another small science fiction publishing house, so come back and check it out!!  And Saturday I’ll write another one of my book reviews, so don’t miss that either!!



Until next time, stay frosty and don’t forget to keep your powder dry!

  1. JR,

    Love that your getting out for a walk and picking up some trash along the way and getting some writing in and being a good husband and playing with the kids. If you keep this up, you might win a Freedom Medal like VP Biden.



  2. I like taking walks around the lake, too. I find it peaceful, and it helps me get story ideas for my writing =) Also, thanks for cleaning up the parks =) It makes me sad when I see trash in the parks too. I wish humans cared more about the environment.
