The Dark Side Of The Force

"I felt a great disturbance in the if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened." Obi Wan Kenobi aboard the Millenium Falcon.

Feeling pretty crappy today. I feel as if my place in the world has been rocked, that I don't seem to know where the goalposts are anymore, or that I'm trying too hard to stick a square rock into a round hole. There seems to be a lot of negativity around and it's affecting a lot of people I know. The quote above pretty much sums everything up. The Dark Side is rising.

Elsewhere in the cosmos, I finished the Rankin feature. It came in at around 2500 words. I asked the Ed for an extension till Sunday for my column to be sent in; that was fine. I have some research to do on Saturday morning for it.

I received a delivery in the mail. My friend Brooks Carver has recently released a book called Pilgrim Heart so we decided on a swap; his book for mine. Casey's book (as he's known in my writing forum), looks great. I had a quick scan through it before I had to leave for my weekly snooker game with my FIL. It contains a selection of short stories, essays and poems. It's always good to read the work of your friends and peers and I'm delighted to have a copy to add to my collection. I can't wait to have a good read of it over the next few days.

Here's the cover, which I think is pretty cool, too. Pilgrim Heart can be ordered from Prairie Sky Press and costs $14.95. Click here to view or order:

Hope you feel better - your work sounds like a real pain.
