Mindless Ramblings

The ramblings today would be mindless just as the title suggests. I have a number of ideas floating around in my head, and a determination not to be dependent on private clients for meeting income needs. I am bordering on doing triple the work to write my own things such as articles and books while dong some private projects to supplement my income.

I would also be rearranging my blogging. This one is the one I like the best so the other two will be merely linked and let to die out slowly. They have served the purpose that was intended. I am getting older and really should focus more. 

I think I need to write somewhere between ten and twenty articles a day to keep on track. This is getting tiring after almost six years.......has it been six years already? The kid turns six this year, so five is more accurate. Next april will be six years. 

I have a lot of things to get out of the house. Things that have been broken, that are too small and things that we do not use. A few of them will make room for new things we need while others will not be replaced at all. The idea is to cut down to the necessities and make sure they are all taken care of before I do anything else. 

I have furniture to replace, the goal is something that is affordable and stain resistance. I require organizers, a place for everything and everything in its place. I am tired of cleaning my house to have it appear as if it hasn't been cleaned in a month less than ten minutes later. 

I would also be attempting to be less long winded. Those efforts are being done through flash fiction attempts, the links will eventually all be found under the page for them. 

Well, I'm expecting a delivery for the kiddo so I'll be going.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
