Oh man. The last week has been rough, but also strangely full of awesome. We barely managed to get things in for the Chinese Consulate, but it happened. But to counter that, we finished up our Las Vegas Wasteland trip I started nearly two years ago that dinosaur.
Well, it gets better. Looks like we'll be going to Disneyland tomorrow after all, so that makes things great! But to top it all off, the thing that made the trip was finally meet a two friends in person: Dan and Kit Mulkerin.
Meeting friends, especially this close to leaving for China, is a big deal for me. I spent that last few days before Los Angeles staying meeting friends down in Phoenix (and spending time with my incredibly cute god daughter,) so any chance to meet up is a chance I value.
But as far as literary topics go, I will say that this trip has also afforded me a chance to think about where I'm going with the story and flesh out a few angles. The six hour drive through the desert to get here gave me plenty of time to chat about the new plot for the first half of The Paladin, so I suppose I have to be thankful for that as well. I'm inching ever closer to making this novel the story it should be and that's terribly exciting for me.
Tomorrow I'll be spending the whole day in Disneyland, so I'm uploading tomorrow's post tonight and setting it to drop at it's normal time. Now, I haven't had a lot of luck with my site doing things properly, so you might end up with a short, impromptu blog post made live from Disneyland. If so, I apologize.
But until then...
Don't Forget to be Awesome
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
