Well a couple of weeks ago I posted the latest chapter of "Mayhem in a Pill" and I expected to have a couple of weeks away from the story just to get away from it for a while. Normally that ain't a problem since I have no set timeline any longer for when the next chapter comes up. I'm basically lazy... I admit it.

So I took the last couple of weeks and caught up on a bunch of reading I had been putting off until I finished the next chapter. So I caught up with some reading and some correspondence with other friends outside of you guys here on SOL.

My very basic deadline I have in my own swollen head is when the latest chapter reaches 10,000 views. I have been generally setting it up for the next one when I reach that mark. And before you ask, yes, I have been noticing the up tick in time for how quickly the 10,000 mark has been getting reached. But it has stayed at generally a month.

I checked it last night after I finished reading a story I had been trying to read for a little while and it was well worth the wait. So I check the chapter download stats and lo and behold chapter 16 of "Mayhem in a Pill" is already at 10,358 just 18 days after I uploaded it.


I didn't think anyone would want to read the stuff coming out of my head and here you guys are reading it... faster.

As a gift to everyone... no the next chapter ain't ready quite yet, good grief get a hold of yourselves. I will use some of the time this weekend to work on it.

I don't think you understand what a huge sacrifice this is for me because I am an NFL Draft junkie. I watch the whole thing gavel to gavel and everything in between. I keep track of where the next team should go and find myself often getting into arguing matches with the so called draft gurus ESPN and the NFL Network like to put on the desk. I mean how dare they have a coach with decades of experience on the sidelines and often even years of experience playing ON the NFL field try to tell me I'm wrong about who should be picked next.

So, I shall tear myself away from the draft today until about an hour before the second round begins and I will NOT go out Saturday night to begin our first mock drafts for the 2017 NFL Draft. Here's a little hint about how serious this is for me... I have already been working on who will be available for the 2018 NFL Draft.

So while the draft is on TV, I will watch it happily then I will make myself watch only one after draft discussion show. And instead, I will work on chapter 17 of "Mayhem in a Pill."

Okay... maybe two NFL Draft shows I mean there are TWO conferences but then it's right back to work for my fans.

Anything for the fans.
