Genealogy and Spirits

Gotta love the Hendricks website logo, especially if you're a conspiracy theorist.

Gotta love the Hendricks website logo, especially if you’re a conspiracy theorist.

I discovered today that Hendricks, my current gin of choice for gin and tonics, comes from a distillery on the outskirts of Girvan, the town in Ayrshire whence my Scottish ancestors emigrated.

That explains much.

In writing news: still at it. Trying to pick up the pace a bit, using the prod site (as recommend by Jeffrey Ricker). If I can squeeze in 750 words on the off days, and more on the weekends, I should be able to get the current manuscript ready for beta by October, instead of the end of the year.

    I’m aiming for a thousand words a day this month, which should put me around 60,000 by the end of July. 750words is making a big difference for me, because it seems I work best to external deadlines, even if they’re largely fabricated. Hope it works for you.
