Day 26: A Break in My Promise to You, Faithful Reader

Tonight was fun.  I took two of my kids to go see "Solo: A Star Wars Story."  Most of our movie theaters are in the casinos here in Las Vegas.  It's funny, because I hate the stereotypes or misconceptions about our little (big) city like "You guys couldn't have schools there." Or "does everyone live in casino?" or some other inane comment or question.  Regardless, it's a weird experience taking my kids through Sunset Station (this time) to get to the cinema.

Anyway, I thought Solo was fun.  Since The Last Jedi was such a letdown and disappointment, I've let go of high expectations for these movies.  It was a solid film and had a fun story with some fun characters.  Nothing deep here.

Writing Update

So I haven't forgotten to update you.  Yesterday, was an intense day that involved some catch up as I prepare to take a few days off.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to complete my goal of writing 500 words of fiction each day until the end of the month.  My wife recently commented that I've gotten too intense about my work and it affects the time we have together.  I don't know if that's really true, but I have decided (in part because of her coaxing) to take the week off that I am going to be on vacation.  That means, I will not be writing 500 words per day of fiction after Monday.  

However, I am working on a story in the series that I have wanted to complete and I am going to commit to you right now that I will finish that story before the end of the day on Monday.  I believe I still have something like 7000 words to write, but I am going to try to do it.  That means 3500 words per day.  I have done more than that before.  

I'm sorry to do this to you (my faithful readers in Russia, Ireland and a few other select countries), but I need to be cool with my wife at this point in time.
