Yep, this just happened.  Our lovely Republican party, which is all about taking the war on terrorism to the enemy’s doorstep, has no problem selling guns to those terrorists.  The people who support the NRA blindly but carry concealed weapons because they are afraid of terrorists have no problem selling them the gun they will use against us.  Apparently, guns and brains do not mix well with money and politics.

In Need of Some Help

Hey gang, I am in need of some good spirits.  My soul sucking corporate job is making mince meat out of me and robbing me of my personal life.  Basically, the cheap ass company I work for has decided to roll to teams into one, taking about fourteen hours of store time into eight.  Surprisingly, there are a lot of emails flying around about huge drops in client goals, which does not help when you are already struggling to just finish a store.  In addition, I think I have mentioned that my health is not top-notch.  I have thousands in medical bills piled up, have not had a raise in nine years (work load keeps increasing though), and the short-term disability insurance from work denied half of my claim.  Oh, by the way, they were only covering 66% of my lost wages anyhow.

So, I could just use some good sentiments about what I share here about the America I see, about my artwork, or about the writings I have posted and am working on.  My spirits are low, my frustration high, and my anger broiling.  Encouragement from you concerning the content of this or other sites of mine would be so helpful right now.  Let me know that I am not alone.  I think we all could use a little companionship these days given the condition of our world and my country in particular.



Writing Update

Well, just finished reworking the last anchor story for Mystics and Misfits and the word count is up to 57,087, which leaves me about 23000 to reach my goal.  The page count is 100.  Won’t be long before I need to research eBook formatting and considering if I want to get a professional editor to tighten things up.  I will probably need help there.  Anyway, I am thinking on digging up one of my more humorous stories next.  The Dragon Dreams novella was pretty deep for me.
