I am in a sort of high-heat, fast-cooking mode at the moment with my writing, trying to get a huge number of projects done, a first draft of second Bobby Dollar novel and several short stories due for anthologies being the main culprits.
And at the moment it’s going well enough that I’m reluctant to take time off to do other things, like get exercise or hang out with my family. I find it interesting how the essential fulcrum of life for me is always work (which I love) versus family and friends (which I love more).
It’s always been an expert-level dance trying to balance the two.

My God, I didn’t even realize — we have moved into the fifth Octomob already! Congratulations, Octomob Number Four, your numbers are complete. And congratulations, new Octomobsters!
(Some time back, I declared that the first 888 Facebook friends constituted an “octomob”. I’ve been keeping track of them since. Friend #3552 filled up the fourth octomob, and #3553 started the new one, which has about nineteen menbers so far. Man, if you don’t know your octomob number, how you gonna get paid?)
Happy Father’s Day! I’m off to play music. And do some fathering, too, naturally. Not in the sense of literally impregnating anybody, just picking up and dropping off various of my offspring.
By the way, apropos of my profile picture, you ARE all watching “Adventure Time” aren’t you? Because it’s one of the best programs on television, and only incidentally “for kids.”
