Preparing for Visitors

It was sunny all day today, which is kind of what I’d expected when I came to the bush. Instead this is the first day of sun. I went for a walk to the stream but spent most of my time making small preparations for Dennis and the girls’ arrival tomorrow and editing another collection of short stories and writing a few stories.

I was in a long writing project over the last few days which is unfortunately not really publishable, but it is a story I wanted to write so I devoted some time to it. I wrote some more on Code World as well, which is going reasonably well. I’m not sure where that book is going to go, but the stories are a bit crazy. I think “Having a Baby” is likely the most saleable one.

Tonight it is very hot in here, as I ill-advisedly threw in a piece of rotten pine. The pitch in pine makes it burn hot. I should have waited until it was cold and the fire nearly out, for now it is almost thirty degrees and I am getting tired from the heat and too much writing.

I am gone soon, and this life of leisure will be replaced with a slightly more hectic one. When the family leaves the next morning I will go with them, stay the night and then catch a ride the next day into town.

There I will ready myself for flying back to Winnipeg. Time to get back to work and get some more stories online. I am planning another five books, although I want to make sure my paperback copies are printing correctly too. By spring I hope to have some ten books or so available in ebook and paper. We’ll see what I actually get done.

About Barry Pomeroy

I had an English teacher in high school many years ago who talked about writing as something that people do, rather than something that died with Shakespeare. I began writing soon after, maudlin poetry followed by short prose pieces, but finally, after years of academic training, I learned something about the magic of the manipulated word.
