I suppose I should not expect to be at my best for writing when I only get four hours of sleep. That’s a hold-over from staying up very late/early watching the pre-game shows on what would happen at the eclipse, then getting up three hours later to view the actual event. It has thrown my sleep cycle out of whack. 

I did manage just over a thousand words today when I had my eyes open. I’m thinking it would behoove me to go to bed tonight before midnight chimes on all my devices. What do you think?

In other news, it is raining for the second time today.

Eclipse Madness

I don’t have much of a neat story to share. (But I’ll share anyway.) I stayed up way too late last night watching the “pre-game show” on The Weather Channel. I went to bed briefly (3 hours), setting my alarm for a half hour before things were supposed to happen in my pocket of the world.

When I got up, the sun shone brightly in a cloudless sky. After a while, the light dimmed a bit and the temperature dipped two degrees. I found coverage on TV of Arizona doings a bit late, but with some channel hopping, got to tune in on this week’s big event.

Elsewhere, several groups of my extended family gathered in Idaho, where they enjoyed the spectacularness of the Great American Solar Eclipse.

Remember, Bloodied Leather, my short story that kicks off the “Shenandoah Neighbors” companion stories to the Owen Family Saga, is available for only $0.99 through the end of the month, at all major online vendors.
