Status Update:

Tick season is in full swing! I know this in part from the ticks on the dogs. Also last night's finding of a tick on me.

Not a fan of the subject matter, but happy with anything cutting down all those damn wordy words.

1,204 brand new words today in my WiP. Sometimes—okay, all the time—a writer will have a destination in mind for the story, but no idea how the characters will get there. And sometimes, the characters, rather than go their own way and be annoying individuals with their own ideas, actually do what they should. They help author to his predestined point while staying totally in character... even finding new depths to their fictional personalities along the way. That happened this morning. I don't expect it to happen again.

Someone recently asked me (maybe Todd Allen?) if USB 3.0 needed different cables than USB 2.0. At the time, I didn't know. But now I do. Yes. They do.

My bank managed to get me my last tax document today! Just in time, CFCU...or would be had I not filed six weeks ago.

I wanted to write something witheringly sarcastic to the higher-ups of Ithaca about the crackerjack job they did in not clearing the city streets this morning. But now, unable to get back up my hill, I sit at the State Diner eating bacon and hoping for more snow.
