Carrots. Fuel for adulting.

Where I’m at in life today:

I plan on writing in the car at the pickup line. I arrive about an hour early to get Optimum Line Placement, assuring that my son gets in and we take off with near military precision.

Side note: If you told me to invade a country and gave me whatever resources I’d need, I would select the teachers who supervise the pickup line. I could have my forces in Moscow by noon. They do not play around when it comes to getting the kids on their way.

Ok, so I’ll write a chapter today– around 1500 words. The fuel I’m choosing is white carrots, purchased from the Hendersonville Produce Stand. It’s the kind of place that has fruits and vegetables that look real, rather than the polished, waxy approximations of food in some stores. I like the irregularity– it’s the same in people, I think. It’s the cracks that make us good, to quote Dozer from the book Heartborn.

Why white carrots, Terry? Welllll, glad you asked. I really dig parsnips, and these are rather like them. Add a touch of butter, salt, pepper, thyme. Roast until tender. Add protein of your choice. Boom. Writing fuel, or fuel for whatever you’re doing.

In my case, it’s writing. I’ll report back on the efficiency of carrots as Fictional Fuel.

Cool to the Touch

Well, someone had to do it. 

A friend of mine wondered why there wasn’t any zombie erotica.

“That’s interesting,” I thought. So I sat down and wrote something that answers a few questions about what happens after the zombie apocalypse. As in, what happens to someone’s carnal desires.
It’s only 99 cents at Amazon (free if you have KindleUnlimited).
Get it here: Zombies Need Love Too!

So, after you’ve gotten done being freaked out, go take a look. It’s short, atmospheric, and unique.

Here’s the cover art, which captures the feel:

Oh, and one more thing: Don’t you judge me. Heh.
