Okay, nothing important to talk about right now. Not because I couldn’t. Hell, the Wales conference with NATO, where either eight or eighty million dollars I forget which was squandered on a security fence so Obammy can play golf instead of worrying about a nuclear war with Russia ( the US can’t fight a war with a major enemy other than with nuclear weapons ), that would be good for half an article. I’m just getting burned out here. The old reasons for writing are getting time worm and pathetic. To help others? Yes, a few. But every time I get confused and think people want to know how to REALLY help themselves survive, I’m reminded of the old Winston Churchill saw (Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing has happened ). To make money? Yes, before. I’ll never forget my loyal minions and all the help they gave me when I needed it. But economic times are tough, the surplus is bleeding out and if you aren’t willing to play the game-and I’m not- you don’t make money in this field. The illusion I’ve held that this is a fall-back small business is not born out by ten years of very intense effort. To combat stress? Yes, writing has done that many times for me. It causes one kind of stress, though, while relieving another. I’m NOT quitting writing. But I’m sure as hell done with the hustle bustle of two posts a day. Back to one morning post, and I’ll see later if I even want to bother with weekends. For now, once in the morning, seven days a week.
I might write at lunch, either for the Loco Gringo fiction, or a new book, as the mood strikes me. Right now, I’ll waste a few lunch hours just leisurely reading as I recharge my batteries. On to Spud Fund news. I got one more PayPal donation, and I sent it out Friday morning. I added a fin and some change to the donated amount because it amuses me that the grand total is going to now be $555.55. For the K-book reviews, I’ve read- sorry, TRIED to read many, many and have come up with three to date you might want to check out. “The end of the world running club” by Adrian J Walker is an asteroid impact in England type. Normally, I hate the “the whole world is my shopping mall” apocalypse stories. But it wasn’t too god awful bad as there is some competition for resources. And it was very well written. David Forsyth has some zombie books out there, one I believe titled Voyage Of The Damned which I really liked despite it being about the undead. His new book is “Sedulity, Book One, Impact”. It is the first in a series, a tribute to Lucifer’s Hammer. Again, a great writer. Yellowstone by K R Nilson was a long winded tree hugging pacifistic screed on lifeboat permiculture but for some reason I couldn’t put the damn thing down and had to finish it. All for now.
