I actually did some writing today, for the first time in a little while. I am still stuck on “Graveyard Shift” so I switched to another story. I rewrote the first 1,000 words of “If By Reason of Strength…” and I am pleased with what I wrote. While writing that, I jogged loose some ideas on how to get “Graveyard Shift” to move forward and maybe I’ll tackle a scene or two on the plane tomorrow.

In the meantime, Andy will be here in a little over an hour and I will be spending the rest of the day with he and Mandhy (and Lisa this evening). So I’ve got to get ready…
