Come Monday...When Rewrites Go Wrong

“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of (or commentary about) websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time.  Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.”  This is subject to change, however.  In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while.  For rants promote change, and change can be good—right?  Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).

Okay, my current consternation has more to do with poor time management than any trouble with the rewriting process.  For that is coming along quite nicely.  That is, except for the little matter of it not being done by now.

It is in regards to the rewrite of [Bittersweet Refinements] in preparation of publishing it on the Amazon Kindle platform that I am referring to.  If you follow the link, you can read it for free on FishHawk Droppings.

Of course, even the Kindled version will only cost a dollar.  For this is not about trying to get rich, but we could still sure use the money.  Be assured that there will be more on that to come on another day.

I could blame much of my troubles on my misadventures in digital graphic imagery.  Come to think of it, I think I will.  For it took four months from the time I started getting serious about making a cover for the Kindled version of Bittersweet Refinements until it was finally finished, and this does not count the months of constipating over the design beforehand.

Yeah, one would think that things would go a lot better if our Heavenly Father really was involved in the process.  After all, if it is indeed true that nothing is impossible for Him, then it would have to be possible for Him to create some fairly simple digital graphics even through me, but I seem to pose quite a challenge for Him, I suppose.

The image below will be the cover for the second edition of [The Minister and The Crackerhead] on the Amazon Kindle platform.  Aside from the addition of the corresponding poem, Rising Son, the second edition will include five more rounds that will not be made available to be read online for free.

Well, at least that is the plan of attack for now, but by the time the second edition of The Minister and The Crackerhead comes out in the next decade or two, much may have drastically changed.  Sigh.

Rising Son
I had a dream
Much more a nightmare
For it became so dark
And foreboding
As I awake
The shadows are receding
For the Son is rising in my sky
Shining ever so brightly
Just as He always has
But it is hard to see
When eyes are closed
He has given me a new dream
Devoid of suffering
Full of joy and love
His joy and love
To be exact
Until it is fully realized
I must hang on
At least the gloom
Is no longer so dark

  9. It's Tuesday here...and I'm having trouble with it. I didn't have any trouble with yesterday which was, as it usually is before a Tuesday, Monday; but I am having trouble with today, which is Tuesday. Today came after Monday, but has arrived before Wednesday. I hope I don't have any trouble with tomorrow, Wednesday.

    Now I'm going to crawl back into my hole because I'm having trouble getting motivated today, Tuesday!
