Another week has flown by. The temperature here is close to 90 degrees and my antique AC unit is struggling. This means I am not sleeping well. Hopefully the maintenance guy will come tomorrow and fix it. I have done as much as I am able with my trusty can of compressed air. Now it’s their turn. I have taken evasive action and strategically positioned my fans to produce a wind-tunnel effect in my small apartment. The internal temperature is still in the low eighties but at least I have a breeze.
Smashing Pumpkins is pretty much on schedule. The rough sleep has slowed down my concentration right now so I’m not moving as quickly as I was last week, but I’m still thinking I can be finished by the end of the month. I’ve been trying to establish a workable format so I won’t have a ton of things to do when I’m ready to turn all the files into book form. The mighty Oracle of Google has shown me a number of ways to accomplish this. I even have cover art now! My wife was kind enough to bust out her mad skillz and produce some options for me.
Also, I want to give a shout out to any LGBT followers. It is June and that means… HAPPY PRIDE! The festival here in Milwaukee was in full swing this past weekend. While I did not participate this year due to my devotion to getting my book finished, my wife spent all of Sunday having a blast at the festival grounds and riding with friends in the parade. Our community here is strong and beautiful! Stay Proud Milwaukee!
