Rainy and mild
Yesterday morning was about contract negotiations on two projects. We’ll see. At this point, either the terms will be accepted, or they won’t. I’m fine with either. I’m not willing to sign something detrimental to my interests. I’d rather walk away.
Got some work done on the short story. I feel good about what’s there, and where it’s going. It was nice to get in some solid writing time.
Drove to New Bedford in the afternoon for my meeting. Drive wasn’t bad, although the fog was thick and it was raining. I need to replace my windshield wipers. I don’t understand the idiots who’ll drive in that weather, refusing to put on their lights. It’s the law to have one’s lights on in this weather; would be nice if it was enforced. It would prevent a lot of accidents.
The meeting went very well. I have some materials to put together by tomorrow and we have to negotiate money. Hopefully, it will work.
On the way back, I plotted out a new play, and worked on the outline last night. It’s a rather bleak, dystopian piece. In other words, contemporary.
Had my orientation for Constitutional Law. I really like the professor. While I believe the class will be challenging, I think it will be worth it.
Picked up Chinese food on the way home, and worked on contest entries. The last couple have been very good.
Love watching WEST WING, but it makes an even starker contrast to what we’re facing.
Kudos to the National Park Service and the employees who are standing up to climate change facts being censored. The Park Service reports to the PEOPLE, who pay for them.
I have a lot of work to do today, along with errands and a lunch mid-Cape. I’ve been invited to an early morning coffee tomorrow morning by a networking organization. I’m tempted to go, but it’s during my best writing time, so I hesitate.
The White House is still ignoring the devastation caused by the tornadoes this weekend. In the states who voted for him. That is not okay. Too busy abusing executive order power and gagging federal agencies.
