I admit, the title of this post is somewhat bland and informative. I usually have to trade creativity with practicality, sometimes…
So, I made it to my coffee shop today. EVP is about a mile from home. Bright setting, nice music, and people. The Friday buzz matches my Friday caffeine buzz. Couldn’t be much more perfect.
I will admit my nerdiness from time to time, just to prove that a person like me can develop and maybe even thrive in our American society, as it is. At the beginning of the week, I weighed by backpack… 14 pounds. I’ve been considering this through the week and have decided that I need to beef up my workout. So today, I added an oversized coffee table Van Gogh book to give me a grand total of 22 pounds. That’s over half what I would carry on a wilderness backpacking trip! That’s alright… you can judge me on this. I’m in good spirits, today!

And so, I’m figuring out some things about the purpose of this blog, for me. I’m not going to nail it down, completely, but will define it as a sounding board, tool for developing accountability, a venting opportunity, creative outlet, promotional venue, community builder, and journal. Aside from that, I’m going to keep it pretty fluid… Don’t fence me in, bro!
Today, I continue digitizing Cloud Man for publication, altering one of my license agreements for a map poster project to be promoted by next week, survey interest for beginner acoustic guitar lessons for adults, brainstorm the perfect cash flow product, build a book cover for my first book to send to Createspace for on demand hard copies, and start production on the next of the “Adventures of Tat the Bat and Nolan” series.
I’ve decided to write my next book on paper, to start, knowing that I will need to transfer it to the computer, in the end. The reason is inspired by the reading the proof of my first book, I recently received from Createspace. I read it differently on paper. Plus, when I transfer it to computer, I’m allowed another opportunity to study and alter the content.
I’m not going to post a song, like previous posts, today. I just have too much to do!
Thank you for your time!
