Writing to be writing

I'm writing here in my blog because to day I'm avoiding writing. In other words, I'm writing to avoid writing. The writing I'm avoiding is my novel, Last Stand at Cibola. The reason I'm avoiding working on my book, is because this morning the furnace went out and I spent all my time replacing the thermocouple, and now it still won't light, so I'm giving it ten minutes and trying it again. Basically, I can't really get into my novel writing in that short of a period of time--at least, I'm telling myself that. The reality is probably different, but as the saying goes, perception is reality. I'm going to try and find some extra time this evening to work on the book.

I didn't know you were writing a book. I'll read it when you're done.

Thanks, Richard. It may be several years before it's done, but I appreciate your interest. I've already written one novel, though I haven't found a publisher for it, in case you're interested in reading that one.
