Morning Pages Entry – July 18, 2014

So, it looks like things are going to be eerily quiet around here again. The family has all headed back home to their respective domicilies, and we are returning to a familiar routine. I had a bit too much wine last night to drink, and am now determined to avoid alcohol for at least the next few weeks, or month if possible. I need to get back into a clean food routine. For the most part at least, my food intake was pretty good. It was only the alcohol that got the better of me. Although, I did have some breaded chicken balls last night with the chinese food, and I did have a few breaded chicken bites the other day over at Tony Romas. I know some of the sauces in those foods the past few nights wasn’t the greatest either. But, that’s ok, I know I’m not going to be perfect all the time. I do need, to get my writing gig up to full speed now. That’s where the glory lies for me at the moment. I did have a little excitement yesterday, as my free book “Endings” spiked up and got 166 downloads yesterday, which is pretty cool. Not to sure what it would take to get it to #1 in a few of the categories that it’s ranking in. It’s like #7 and #13 in a few categories. It’s actually above Hugh Howey’s wool free book in one of the categories it’s actually #14 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Dystopian . Which, is a pretty cool feat I think. Hugh is down around number 18 I think. Gotta love it. I wonder, if there’s a way, I can capitalize on this. I’m sure, I should be able to. I wonder, if I could post it on his facebook page. I am listed as a fan of his, or a follower or something. That would be a pretty cool thing to do. I wonder, if he would allow that? I really should look into that. It would be pretty cool, if you could draw a bit of attention to yourself while your there. So, I suppose, were heading back to the boat this weekend, and a bunch of Jennifers friends are showing up to hang out there. Could be a little hectic, to say the least, but not nearly so much as it was, with all of the family here for the last week. I really do miss them all already though. It was pretty great, having them around for the week. I do need to find a way, to make that kind of stuff happen more often. There’s no reason for it not to be, if you can get the writing cranking out faster and at a higher level of quality. Get the word out there, is what I need to do. Amazon just rolled out there “Kindle Unlimited” program, so we’ll just have to see what that does to things. Basically, people can read as much as they like of the books enrolled into it for like $9.99 per month. If it get’s more people reading my books and buying my books then yay! cool! bring it on! At the moment though, no one is really to sure what will happen. I do think, I need to go and eat something. I am feeling pretty exhausted today. Too much alcohol coursing through my system, and not enough decent sleep. Gonna have to work on that over the next few days. I do need to get back to my up at 6am routine. Get some writing done. Get some paddle boarding done. Get some money rolling into the bank account. That’s what needs to start happening. Oh yea, and need to get to work on the taxes … that’s sort of a big thing to. Need to get that done, before I end up having to do my corporate taxes at the same time. That would really suck. So, go eat … go write … go make a bunch of money, and don’t forget to do it for the love of the writing. For the love … remember! Time for the real deal. We want to start spending more time visiting family, and travelling around the world more. That’s the cool shit, that needs to start happening in this boys life. Get that third book out there sucker … then start promoting the shit out of things.
