I’m not going to work on anything new until I finish writing about Spain. Right now I’m going through my 80 pages of notes I took there, trying to tame this beast of a production. Either it will drop this Monday or the next (probably the next). It will be worth the wait.

At the last blogger happy hour a couple people expressed disappointment that I am “slowing down.” Like anything, blogging has its peaks and valleys. I’ve had less time to write this summer but I’m sure that will change once the weather cools down. I know I’ve let Kathryn down with my absence from First Date DC, though she is doing just fine without me.

Postscript: Outline is done. We’re looking at 7 or 8 main parts. I’ll cut back if each part can’t stand on its own. The writing has begun…

4000 words written so far…
5000. Started editing early parts. Draft is 60% done…
4744. Six parts are complete. I need to regroup because I’m not sure how to finish this…
5637. I’ve hit a wall with two parts left. Maybe sleep will give me the answer…
6980. Notebook 1, page 21:

Monday, August 28
I don’t believe I wasted over four hours on the lamest side trip ever. To top it off, the magic fountain was magically closed.

Notebook 2, page 23:

Thursday, September 7
The cough is getting very bad at night, to the point of gagging. My throat is sore from all the coughing. I think I need to see a doctor.

I am done.

10 parts total. Check back Monday.

    Stay fresh man, better to have a valley than to burn out. Kathryn rocks but we need the testosterone to balance the estrogen!

    I’m pulling through. You know, a couple of men have asked to help me out in your absence, my friend.

    I’m holding out for DCB’s return, but… I may start cheating on you again.

    I’ve noticed this many times before.. you americans use the word “next” in a very peculiar way.

    Good to see you’re back.

    DCBs slow online development into thoughtful adulthood was sometimes painful to watch but I’m starting to like the results, but I fear his more immature and testosterone-addled readers may be starting to feel somewhat abandoned.

    Perhaps DCB could hire some misygonist in his early 20’s to spew some hateful hit-and-run-dating-advice to get things back on track?

    . . . MMMMMMM . . . NAH.

    DCB’s been putting out quality for years. Like most art, the content changes over time but I’m glad to see that the quality has not.

    Looking forward to it.

    My sister went to Spain alone for a MONTH and could retell her incredible stories in an HOUR and she stayed in hostels ALONE as a woman and did ALL the cultural traveling and non-touristy stuff…Did you get MARRIED or something?

    Bring back the hate. The estrogen squad is squealing too much in your absence. The correct attitude starts at the top. It’s time for your assistants to wear veils and burkas.

    Slowly but surely, women’s rights can be taken away. Husbands and boyfriends, my fellow brethren, it is your duty to prohibit your woman from voting this november. Revoking property rights will take longer, but be patient my brothers, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
