Wrote another chapter of my space novel. The year is 1992 so the science of the times is familiar to me, but the training for the space program is requiring a lot of research. I'm learning so much about the Johnson Space Center and what the astronauts had to go thorough. Still, my favorite part of writing is when I'm working with the characters. To me, that's really what story telling is all about.
Was given some free tickets to see country singer Travis Tritt this coming Friday. I've seen him before and he puts on a great show. I'll be spending the night in Laughlin and the yearly Motorcycle Rally will be full swing. Should be exciting.
We will be reading Leon Uris for our next book club meeting at our local Book Exchange. Got some really good feedback from one member of the group and a so-so comment from another. As for me, he's my hero and he's what strove me to be a character based writer.
Oh, my granddaughter turned fifteen and a half today and she is now the proud owner of a driver's permit. The girl now has 'wheels'! She's growing up too fast. Because her paternal grandfather raced cars at one time, she feels driving is in her blood. She's a dynamic girl and she's going to be a good driver. Congrats, Hailey!
As for my quip of the day, my dream of having my books read and enjoyed by many, many people is what I'm living this past week or so. So, I quite agree with Henry David Thoroeau - "I have learned this at least by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."
