Musings…a few random thoughts from my actual front porch…unedited…

For the past few days, I’ve been sick. It seemed like a regular head cold, and then it evolved into this monster that tried to strangle me every night. It looks like I’ve managed to turn the corner.

Time has slowed since I became sick. The days seemed to move at a snail’s pace. Usually, the days fly by, but given that I’ve been stuck at home, I guess it made sense that time would drag.

I’ve discovered an awesome way to survive quarantine and illness. Thanks to ThriftBooks, I’ve bought many books to read. My ‘to-be-read’ pile has grown exponentially.

Life without goals is chaotic for me. I am a guy that has excelled within structure. I tend to not make New Year resolutions. However, after experiencing some writing success last year, I’ve decided to set some goals for myself for 2022.

Editing, that part of writing I dread, will be my main focus this year. In between bouts of subtraction/rewriting, I will finish stories I’ve already started but left incomplete. My current writing project, Snatched, will be the last ‘new’ project as I focus on three stories which I’ve rewritten: A Hot Day Down South, The Recluse, and Holes.

As always, thank you to all the great people who visit and check out Freeman’s Front Porch Musings. I am thankful to each of you, and the support you’ve given me.

Take care,
