Lone Writer’s Log Book: Day 114-118, 2017

Monday

Busy day back at work. I had over 250 emails waiting for me. Subway for dinner then spent the evening reading.

Tuesday

Still catching up at work. Wendy’s for dinner. Saw a kid get hit by a car on the way home. Stopped. He was okay. Still very upsetting to see that happen.

Wednesday

Finally starting to feel like I’m getting caught up. Open Mic Night at Helium. Not the best mic, only 10 people in the crowd. 20 comics.

Thursday

Did open mic at Hey Guys. Not much better. Only 4 people in the crowd. 13 comics.

Friday

Slow day at work. Uneventful day.  It rained almost all week and more is expected this weekend.  After the rain all last week in TN too, I’m ready for some sunshine.

  1. It’s Easter. Also would have been my dad’s 76th birthday.

Monday-Sunday

Packed and got on the road early Monday morning headed to Tennessee.

Started writing in a journal on Tuesday, something I haven’t done in years.

Visited Dad’s grave on Wednesday. I noticed the cemetery had lots of dead grass so I bought 5 lbs. of grass seed and reseeded the grave yard.

My birthday was Thursday. Mom cooked spaghetti for me and had a DQ ice cream cake for me.

Finished the Baldwin memoir on Friday and started reading Mary Higgins Clark’s very first book called Where Are The Children?.

Went to the lake with the family on Saturday for dinner.

On Sunday we stopped back by the cemetery after lunch; my grass had started to come up thanks to it raining all week. It was also cold most of the week.  I was back home in St. Louis by 7pm.

Tuesday

Didn’t make the list at open mic so I came home and we watched two more episodes of The Returned on Netflix.

Watched one more episode of The Returned before I had to leave for the Helium show. We had a smaller audience this time but still just as good. I found out when I got there they were letting me do 8 minutes. I had a solid set and was happy with it.
