Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF

“Look Lucy. Friday is here.”
“I see it Little One. Thank goodness.”

 

It is Friday and it came just in time.

As you may know I’m helping C.S.Boyack with his launch of Viral Blues his new book. If you haven’t visited yet here is the link. I’m reading it now and am enjoying it.

I’m happy to say the first draft of my new book is done. I now  need to let it rest for a few and then go back for the second run through. It is amazing to me what can be done when you make a committment. Thanks to all of you for your encouragement during the process. Today’s JohnKu talks about a journey. I hope you all have a great weekend.

The first step starts it,

Then it is rinse and repeat . . .

Until you are home.

  12. Congratulations on finishing. Enjoy the time it spends in the fermenter. I like the poem, because writing really isn’t a sprint.

    1. Sometimes we want it to be a sprint but steady as she goes is usually the best.
