Random Post: August Update

Hey all,

Was that solar eclipse yesterday awesome or what?  It felt like watching sunset and then sunrise again in the course of ten minutes.  Really great.  Ended up squinting one eye through those counterfeit solar eclipse glasses I had and then placed a pair of sunglasses over them.  Also, I covered most of the sunglasses with my hands to only allow a small peep hole.  Strange how the rain cleared up just before the eclipse happened and then resumed right after... glad I could see it though.  Hope you did too.

I managed to move my latest novel along and am almost done with the first draft.  By almost, I mean like 25-50 pages away.  I'm not sure how the schema will change upon the initial edit.  Honestly, I kind of like it but I also don't like it all that much (for now).  I'm not sure if this was the story I envisioned and I will probably change the ending I envisioned too.  Initially, I had thought to make the end scene erotica-like because hey, it might be interesting to give a new style a try.  But then... I don't know... not so sure now.  Maybe making it sweet is enough.  What do you think?

On and all, I'm slating production to be early October or late September, depending on how busy things get at work.  That's also if I don't just drop things and go prospecting in Arkansas.  That's right, prospecting for diamonds!... at the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas.  Been eyeing that place for a while but it's such a long drive!  In case you haven't ever checked this place out, look it up.  For $10(?) you can dig for diamonds all day.  Most can be found just by walking around and picking them off the ground.  Apparently, the diamond digging area used to be a volcano a long time ago.  Most of the diamonds aren't worth much (pennies if even that).  Once in a while, someone might find a gem amongst gem and that's when the big bucks roll in!  I just think it's neat.  Never been, but it's on my to-do list.

Well, that's all I have for now.  TTYL.
