...than to try and make a plan or a schedule.
It seems that throughout my life, whenever I attempt to plan something in advance, Murphy's Law walks up and take a real close look at what I'm doing.
It immediately laughs it's ass off and says,. "Yeah, sorry bucko. It was a good plan, really it was, but it ain't happenen'!"

So here's the thing.
I'm a Merchant Mariner. I live on an oil barge for two weeks a month and I work twelve hour shifts fueling ships. I've been doing this for almost seventeen years.
Since I got here on Wednesday I have been working, fueling those ships, nonstop.

I like my 5000 word chapters, and at the time of writing this I have on 880 words of chapter 4.
I MIGHT get lucky this evening(Sunday the 3rd) and tomorrow, but I'm honestly not holding my breath.

In closing, I will get Chapter 4 out as soon as I can.

Read Long and Prosper,
