Progress Report, in which I wobble, but don’t fall down . . . much

Another 5K on Petra Released.  Let’s check out Magic Meter.  Cue the timpani:

<waits for applause>

<hears crickets chirping>


Editor brain is still nagging me about this and that, but he’s a bit easier to ignore at the moment.  I’m reveling in the luxury of actually knowing where I’m headed, for at least the next chapter or so.  I’m coming out of that muddled middle.  Soon, I’ll be embarking on the third act, in which several subplots will come crashing together.

This novel is a definitely more complex than Petra, which is a good thing.  Petra, being my first novel in several years, was fairly stripped-down and straightforward–and that was probably just what I needed at that time.  With the new novel, the training wheels have definitely come off.  I’m wobbling my way along, and for the most part managing to keep my balance. 

OK.  I’ve skinned my knees once or twice.  Or three times.

No updates for Write Club.

Wobbling on . . .

Attention Portlanders

You lucky, lucky people.

Joe Bonamassa, the Greatest Guitarist Alive (TM) is playing the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival on July 3rd.

Some of you (and you know who you are) have already heard me rave about him.  Now you get to see for yourselves.

Trust me.  Go to this thing.  Bask in the glory.

And if you get a chance to chat with Joe after the show, tell him Matt from Omaha says hi.

You lucky, lucky people.

Still scared of socialized medicine?

Gas prices making health care hard to afford.

I work in the insurance industry, and even I can see this is totally screwed.

Much as I love the free market, it ain’t gettin’ the job done here, gang.  It just ain’t.
