Best-selling fantasy novelist and fellow Arlington Writers Group member Michael J. Sullivan said to me and writer and group member, Jess Stork this evening: “I expect to see blog posts from both of you tomorrow morning.” This said, after a number of beers were consumed by all in the fabulous outdoor atmosphere of the Northside Social in Arlington before going our separate ways. I think he meant is as a dare. I don’t know if Jess will get a post up tonight, but since I haven’t written one yet today, this is it.
With all of you as my witnesses, therefore, I have risen to Michael’s challenge, met his (admittedly low) expectations while at the same time, squeezed out a post (such as it is) all before heading off to bed with a copy of the July 1940 Astounding (I’m about read Heinlein’s “Coventry”).
Good night all. Kelly and the Little Man are back home tomorrow. My relief knows no bounds!
