Derik Badman's Journal

Finished up the first half of The Wizard Knight yesterday. Reading it was almost all I did. Still very enjoyable. It seems to me the protagonist is constantly side tracked and rarely actually completing anything he starts. The plot is constant series of interruptions of one goal or quest for another. By the end of the first half, he gets the sword he was searching for, but has left so many things undone (and promises unfulfilled). I might take a break before I read the second half to read a few of the other things I brought alone with me (like a couple zines).

It's our last full day here at the beach, rainy and grey so far, and I feel the desire to head home building. While it's nice to not have to think about work, and to just be somewhere else, it's also not something I want to do for a long period of time, and this has been about the right amount of time. I read a lot, I wrote the comics reviews I planned on writing. I didn't get as much writing done with my stories as I hoped, but I added on to the current one in progress. I got to do all the little things I like to do here at the beach, except I haven't gotten down to the water to watch the sand pipers run around. Maybe the rain will stop and I can get down there this afternoon.
