First, I hope everybody had a great Easter with the family. After almost 2 decades of continuing living in the US, I can’t relate to the Bunny that lays eggs with candy. Or pumpkin pie for that matter.
I am gonna out myself and officially declare myself a writer. I have been musing and perusing a couple of books in my head and this weekend I sat down to finally put one down in “paper.” After reading and reviewing books by J.D. Kinman, Jim Curtis and R.P. Ruggiero, I found myself saying over and over “You know, you can do this. They threw caution to the wind and did it. So can you.” So expect (eventually) an action book from yours truly, as the first 3300+ words are already down. Feel free to harass me about it, it will keep me writing. And I haven’t forgotten about the book on Avoidance, Deterrence and De-escalation, the material is there, but trying to make it palatable turned out not to be easy and I know some cows will be slaughtered.
I also spent the weekend (when not writing or grilling) keeping an eye on the Hugo Awards debacle. If you are a SciFi book fan, you already know that the establishment was challenged and defeated by the “Right Wing” barbarians that have been pounding at the gate for three years. The Social Justice Warriors cadre are absolutely out of their frigging minds, going some as far as to demand the cancellation of the award rather than accept that authors that do not embrace the ultra-left wing dictum may have a chance at winning the award.
2015 is going to be a challenging year. So far the sumbitch has been less than nice, but eff him back.
And yes, I am planning on still keeping you guys informed of the shenanigans of the Opposition…which reminds me: anybody going to the NRAAM, finds out where Moms are going to meet (More likely Centennial Park, 2 miles west of the convention center) and plans to pay them a visit, please take pics and send them over for publication, specially if the bodyguards are present.
OK, back to our original programming.
