This is one of those hodge podge kind of posts where I just drop in a bunch of random thoughts and what’s going on and such, because I keep thinking I need to update the blog, and never have enough hours in the day to write a legitimate post.
Myspace - Â Good lord, I was just on site, checking out what’s going on with my ‘friends’ as got a glimpse at how long it’s been since I’ve updated anything there.Â Update my myspace is definitely on my list of things to do in the immediate future.
Website -Â I guess right along side of that should be update the ol’ website, but I don’t know I’m still sort of kicking around the idea of just making this blog the only incarnation of the site for the time being.
Concerts - I went to two concerts in a forty-eight hour period last weekend, it was really sort of crazy.Â Rick Springfield on Friday night up north of Detroit and Travis Tritt right here in town on Saturday night. They were both terrific in their individual ways and for the first time in a long time, I actually allowed myself to just enjoy the music.
I decided about a week before I wasn’t taking cameras and I wasn’t going to to take notes.Â I wasn’t going to review either show, not for here, not for BC. (Yeah, I know, bad music editor.)
But I identified something in myself not that long ago. Some of the passion I used to feel toward music has slipped away from me lately. Listening to it, somedays, has become a chore. Sometimes I want to listen just because it makes me feel good, and somedays I want to go to a show, let my hair down, and just rock (the F***) out and not worry about the sound, the lights, or anything else.Â So yeah, Friday night was all about Rockin’ out, dancing in the isles and having a blast.
But Saturday was an eye opener two.Â We went to the rib-off to see Travis Tritt, because it was Saturday night in Toledo and there wasn’t anything else to do. (Seriously, this city sucks!) Â I actually hemmed and hawed about even being there up to the man took the stage because the last time I had seen him live I was so disappointed.
It was hot.Â My legs hurt from the night before.Â I was wearing cute shows, not sensible shoes. And part of me almost said, “You want to go do something else” to my two partners in crime for the evening.Â I am so glad I stuck it out! Â Any misgivings I had based on the last time I had seen Mr. Tritt perform were erased within five minutes of him being on the stage… and two hour and twenty minutes later was he was topping off a twenty minute encore that had simply, no other word works here, rocked!
But in the interest of not reviewing these concerts… that’s all I have to say about that.
Â Kentucky -Â was an absolute and total blast! I could go on for pages here about all the fun and the learning experiences the kids had, but I won’t.Â Unless, your into horses you would be bored to death.Â If you are into horses, ask me about the trip next time you see me and if you’ve never been to Kentucky Horse Park, make arrangements to do so now.
The latest novel -Â is done.Â Was pretty much officially done mid-week, and I’ve spent two days going through a post-partum depression of sorts as I switch gears from creative to marketing/promotional.Â I’m only going to allow myself a week or so of getting my agent list etc around and getting the queries in the mail, and then it’s onto either a) writing the new oneÂ or b) totally reworking the vamp story I’m in love with and want to see a publisher fall in love with.Â I’m leaning toward a, because I have this terrific idea brewing in my head and I’m pretty excited about it.Â I’ll probably take a week to sketch out an outline and figure out a full plot, before I decide which way to go for sure.Â In the meantime, I let you know here if anything breaks with IH.
