I just had a three-day weekend from work, but didn't get as much work done on writing as I'd hoped.  Saturday was spent traversing the area just to the south of where I live, which was nothing if not interesting and filled with new character sketches to work into some of my writings.  I suppose you could call that working--possibly chalked up to research--but drinking and having fun were the primary reasons to go on this adventure, and I've already researched those roles.  A bottle of vodka and a late-night fish dinner rounded out the evening well.
Sunday I made a conscious effort to stay home and work, at least until baseball came on.  As research for a possible collaborative effort, I began reading Louis Lamour and will soon begin Zane Grey's Riders of the Purple Sage.  I'd like to write a western, but I can tell that, due to my lack of knowledge in Western affairs, these will just be a jumping-off point.  I also began cleaning up All Hope!, which is a longer piece already than anything I've ever written at about 20,000 words, in hopes that I'll be able to finish the ending soon and have a good base to work into a good story.  I drank, slowly, all day, however, and therefore did not have as much production as may be hoped.  I watched baseball, popped a friend's Royal Tennenbaums cherry and almost burned my apartment down when I fell asleep.
Monday could have been the productive day I'd hoped for, and I did get some things done, although, as always, a new idea simply added more to my already-crowded plate.  I was mad at first that the Brewer's would not be opening on my day off, but tore through quite a bit of The Man from the Broken Hills.  I could have been more productive if I didn't have a huge pile of dishes to do, but that's not the reason I got almost no writing done.  Because I had secluded myself so perfectly from the outside world, emerging only to buy seeds and soil to start an herb garden, I forgot that the national championship was that night.  Considering the level of boredom that the game was taken to by North Carolina's dominance, I wish it would have remained forgotten.  I was reminded my a call from someone I had not hung out with for a while, and we went to the small town of Orangeville, IL to complain about how uninteresting the game was.  My new idea came from this, and it weaves the entire weekend into an experience that could have happened that night.  The basic plot is that a younger guy, who looks even younger than he actually is, semi-poses as a college student and picks up a less-than-spectacular older bar patron, taking her back to his disgusting apartment (one in which the dishes were not done and which smelled like it had come close to burning down) and allowing her to more fully appreciate her boring existence.  I, having left my notebook at home because I didn't want to again be the weird guy at the bar scratching away at a pad, sent a few sparse text messages to myself as a way to remember plot lines.  When I returned home, I wrote furiously, but I have not yet reviewed anything in the clarity of perfect sobriety, and so may have made a lot more work for myself.  I hope to be able to work more in the near future to be able to get more finished product out to you.
