PaxtonI have no writing space other than where I am with my laptop close at hand. The recliner in the family room.  Every now and then sitting on the deck in the back yard. For the past seven months or so, Tuesday evenings have been this. My younger son has a weekly event that requires pick up at 8:15. I have about two-and-a-half hours to fill. I find a downtown restaurant that has decent food and good beer and crack open my laptop. I check my email. I blog. I do this. I do that. And, if I’m lucky, I get some writing in on one of my fiction projects. This picture: The Pour House, Tuesday, April 23, 2013. I squeezed out a couple of hundred words before it was time to get the kid.
