Paint it Black (c) 2009/10 Ray Van Horn, Jr. / The Metal Minute
Welcome to Blursville, faithful lot! If anyone can tell me where the past week went, oy...
Banging my eyes more than my entire head with manuscript in lap, striking pen at the helm. The novel has really found its heart and soul and I'm excited about the clean up effort while consulting some old manuals and pep talk books my grandfather gave me a lifetime ago when he predicted I'd become a writer. I'd like to think he's especially been with me the past couple days during these rewrites, wow. Miss you, Grandpa. As I posted at my Facebook page (come on by and say howdy, y'all), when the heart and the mind bleed as one, the pages runneth over spectacularly.
Of course, when your two-year-old locks you out of the house and you're put into a desperate position, the mind unlocks hidden treasures which crop out once the situation is resolved and the adrenaline quelled. Good times.
For our purposes at The Metal Minute, be on the lookout for more goodies. Had to reschedule your next Take 5 guest and prayers of health and healing go out to his family. It'll be worth the wait, readers, and with that, it's a new day and loud vibe to carry it forth. Thanks as always for your unyielding support.
