Well, it’s Thanksgiving here in the US. So, to all those who celebrate the holiday, Happy Thanksgiving!
I’m posting another NIS today. It’ll be up if the site owner has time — don’t know if he will since it is a holiday. I’ve upped the postings to once a week, and I’m still sort of considering starting an Avatar Yahell group. Just for folks to talk about the story, if they’re so inclined. I think I haven’t because I don’t want to be the only one in the group 🙂
I’m going to continue posting once a week for as long as I can. I’m pretty sure it’ll be no problem with NIS, but once I start posting Book 2 again, I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep up with that schedule. Problem is, I’m writing four different stories at once. Avatar Book 2, another pay novel, and two SciFi novels. Well, a SciFi novel and a SciFi story.
So, since it’s Thanksgiving, I thought I’d mention some of the things I’m thankful for. Feel free to add some of your own.
The fact that I have a tech job (even though I hate the job, it’s still work)
My editor and proofer (KB and Felinicus)
The fact that four years isn’t forever (and some of that time has passed)
Additionally, please don’t forget the folks in our Armed services. You might not be happy about what they’re doing, but remember, their duty is to follow the orders of the President, and they’re putting their lives on the line to do it. My best wishes to their families as well. It’s tough to know a family member might never come home.
I truly wish that some of our blow-hard politicians, who are only interested in their own importance and careers, could spend a week as a Marine in a war zone. Maybe they’d think twice about being so casual about sending off our men and women to die so they can claim to be bringing Democracy and Religious Freedom and Tolerance to the world (while it’s being stolen from us by those same politicians in our own country).
