Figured out my new pet, and writing shenanigans

Yikes, haven't written a post on here for a while.  Better not make that a habit.  Well, it was another sad weekend because I had to put my other hamster down.  As sad as it was, I was relieved that I was able to catch this one on time and get her in before she was suffering too much.  You will be missed, Bitey!  Miss both of you girls.

Now, for the good news.  2 bits of good news.  1:  My girlfriend and I got a new kitten.  We named him Bubbles, after a character we love from THE WIRE.  He's adorable.  He's a Highland Lynx (if that's how you spell it).

The second bit of good news is I've decided I wanted another hamster.  This time, I'll be getting a Black Bear hamster.  I was doing some research online and I found out that they are the most friendly.  We went to the pet store yesterday just to make sure, and yep, they are!  They let you hold them for the most part and they don't bite.  They may give you a little nibble, but that's nothing compared to what Bitey would do to you.  Yeah... she would actually draw blood.  As cute as dwarf hamsters are, they don't like to be held.  So, that's why I think a Black Bear hamster is for me.

On the writing front, still going strong with GOODMAN'S BAD DAY.  I've found the emotional core of it.  Even though I always had an idea when I started this years ago, I only touched on it a little.  Now, the story has become something more.  While it is a very goofy story, it now has a bit of seriousness to it.  It no longer feels like it is only an absurd and goofy tale.  I'm really excited about the progress I'm making.

Other news, IN DECLINE is now only $1.75.  Sales are slow, so I'm hoping a bit of a price change will fix that.

That's all for now.  My family and I are going to WI this weekend.  Looking forward to it.  That's the only reason why I didn't pick up the hamster yet!  When I get back, I will have a new furry friend.
