Well, this probably is going to be a nonwriting day. I’m going to treat it that way, just in case.
Ever notice how much that guy Justin Case has to do with life in general? (grin)
I have a doc appointment (routine) on the far side of Tucson at 8:45 this morning. Justin Case of traffice, etc. we’ll leave here around 7.
I would think we should be back by 1 or so, but you just never know. So I’m gonna post this edition of the Journal early. You know, Justin Case.
If I happen to get back early enough to get some writing done, I’ll revise this Journal before it goes out via email at 7.
So those of you who get it via RSS, just be aware it might change.
I haven’t really been trying for a “streak” with this blog. Just chatting with my friends for an hour or so per day.
But it seems to have developed into a streak, in that it’s difficult to think of missing a day posting. (Streaks have power; they don’t want you to break them.)
So I guess it’s a streak. I’ll figure out how long later.
Nah, I have time. Lemme look.
Okay, November 25, 2015 through today, I posted something to this Journal every day. (A few of those days I was camping and without Internet, but for those I pre-posted things.)
So today is Day 490. You know, Justin Case you were wondering.

Stayed up and watched Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra in Anchor’s Aweigh last night. Such a great film.
Today, and Writing
Rolled out at 4.
My proof was ready from CreateSpace for Body Language, a book I originally published as an ebook way back in January, 2016.
Body Language was my 12th novel (of 25). So I still have a bunch to get into paper.
I could just say 13, but by the time The Pyramid Killer (my current WIP) is in paper, I’ll have probably another 25 written and waiting in the wings. (grin)
Not a lot at Dean’s or elsewhere today that I could find.
