Random Ramblings #52 - "If it Ain't Broke..."

Tried to give an old favorite working spot a second chance after a long layoff. I didn't work out well. First, they've shortened their hours (I was planning to write until 6; they have "summer hours" and now close at 5), then secondly, there was no way to connect my laptop to their wifi (the only working connection was one detected by my cell, but not my laptop; the lady next to me had the same issue).

I tried to make the best of it and use my phone to listen to music (gotta have my tunes), but I'm also used to being able to check social media between breaks as well as research things on the spot as they come up. Long story short, I closed out my tab and have returned to where I should've gone in the first place--(in my Paul Heyman voice at :45 sec) the CURRENT, REIGNING, DEFENDING, and UNDISPUTED writing spot champion, Starbucks!

Now let me get to work...

Shadowfox #13 - "Today Was a Good Day"

I stepped out to the local Starbucks to get some more work done on Issue #1 of #Shadowfox. I was concerned about hitting a 1,500-word goal (I want to set a daily goal, but make sure it's doable), but wound up shutting it down with 2,120 words under my metaphorical belt.

I'm tempted to do a little more at home, but I think I'll leave it alone for the night and relax (or work on something else!). I'm sure I'll be going WAY over the initial 7,500 budget for this issue, but it's all good. Just more for the readers to (hopefully) enjoy...

My office for several hours today.
