Celtic Tree Month of Hawthorn
Rainy and cool
Time to get serious and catch up on the writing. I’ve spent far too much time this week in research and avoidance.
Today has to be productive, because tomorrow’s all about the Preakness.
I studied the Racing Form today to pick tomorrow’s undercard choices. Today’s choices are listed in yesterday’s “Preakness Ink” below. When I wrote the monthly handicapping column, I’d have to get the Form by 5 AM, study it, write my article and turn it in by 9 AM. A bit exhausting. This pace is much better.
I have a half a dozen ideas for articles for FemmeFan when Triple Crown season is done. It should keep me published for a good bit of the summer. I will try to research and write something every two weeks.
I have a stack of article ideas that I have to prepare and pitch so that I know what I do and don’t have to work on in the coming months.
A trip to the Cape Cod Natural History Museum is in the works, probably for the week after the Belmont.
I need the next four days to be intensive writing days with no excuses.
Go to it.
