Welcome Wanderers! Just a few random do-hickies from the past month in ye olde junk drawer.
Got my game on, played a bit of Warhammer with Paddy Heroes. I believe we will be doing that again this month. I am a gonna have to paint more figs, keep sprucing up the ponies. I would like to do a weekly gathering but renting the clubhouse is cost prohibitive. Other venues may arise, the Heroes will just have to keep poking away at, and we shall.
We are fast approaching the one year anniversary of the blog. I sure have come a long way since then, and got a long way to go as well. It has been fun, educational, and by golly miss molly, it has broken the block and I can not shut up. Good thing too, I would burst otherwise. The good thing is, I am constantly adding new things, and will continue to do so.
You may have noticed the ads on the page. I thought I would give it a go, blog space is not cheap and if it pays for the blog, cool. I am not gonna make big bucks, just pay expenses. We will see how it all plays out. You may have also noticed new pics, new graphics and new categories, that is cool too. As I continue on, that will change too, but a couple new ones are Paddy Books and Cooking with Paddy.
The book section is obvious, I read a ton and like to share, so look out for the book pic, it should be something on well, books! The Cooking with Paddy is, you guessed it! Paddy trying his hand at cooking. I cant boil water, never learned how to cook. Now that I am currently laid off, well, I am going to give it a go. You can tell I have been watching too much Food Network.. You, my fellow wanderers, get to see the trial and tribulations of Paddy in the kitchen, should be fun.
We had a good Easter and a foine St Patricks Day, middle son hit the big two oh. I keep plunking out bits and bobs of writing in the fiction department, collected four nice rejection letters on the latest short story and it is still out there. Who knows? Maybe it will find a home. No worries, there are more stories and a bunch of venues to foist em on.
I also started freelance writing for examiner.com. I am also looking at other venues, maybe do some of that, make a few bucks, write, see where it all goes. There are a lot of opportunities and being a wanderer, I am going to give em a go, why not?
That is about it. My goal is to crank the novel and polish some shorts and a couple poems, get em out there. On the work front, who knows? Finding a job has been tough, but persistence is the key. And one last thought, my goal is to not screw up better halfs kitchen or her cooking utensils, and not burn the place down. Gonna see how it goes I guess, no worries.
