I still write stuff sometimes

Yes, it's true. Of late, I've been writing primarily non-fiction, to support my new Caveman Gym website, but I don't want to give the impression that I have given up on the fiction stuff that I have been known to churn out from time to time.

Proof of this comes in the form of two submissions being, er, submitted yesterday. One has already been accepted (Viva!), and one I will not hear about for a while. I find that it is often the case that I take on just a few too many things, and I am unable to move forward on all fronts with equal efficiency. In some cases, I end up paralyzing myself with too many goals, and don't seem to get anything at all accomplished. I'm sure I'm not alone in this.

Let's delve into specifics. I've been attempting to populate a new website and spread the word about said website. I've been working out with some serious goals in mind. I've been shooting video. I've been working full time. Now and then, I like to talk to friends, eat, and sleep. This cuts into both my writing and my laying about time. Anyway...

As usual, I have several too many stories started, and several that are knocking about on my hard disks to no purpose, which need to be submitted. I intend to begin swimming toward the surface in this regard, such that at least some of my actionable stories are off in a slush pile somewhere, or busily being rejected by editors, or happily making their way toward publication. Yes, that's an awful sentence. I like it somehow. This being MY blog, it stays.

I am otherwise well. Included within the wellness is the news that I am on the verge of equaling my ancient personal record of 500 pounds on the trap bar deadlift. I got 495 this morning, should you choose to care. 505 is about all the weight that will fit on the implement, and I will soon fit said weight and hoist it up. Happy days, huh?

Alas, it has been a wintry winter here in SLC. I have gotten far too few chances to shoot my bows. I don't think it's healthy to take the wooden models out when its frigid, and in point of fact, my problem of "too many goals" has also stood in the way. This to, as they say, shall pass.

Hope you're all well, and take care.

Hey Buddy,
I'm digging the caveman stuff, though I'm curious to know if I'll enjoy it as much without us polishing off a bottle of wine before we go hit the garage. You are a man of many talents, my friend
