I've tried before to do a lot of writing on these long three-day weekends. It's time away from work. Living alone, I don't have many distractions in the house aside from my kittehs clawing at the furniture. There were a few years I even tried that 3-Day Novel contest of Anvil Press set for this weekend (never worked out, GODS that's an insane contest).
Still, this is a good time to get at least a handful of short stories started (or even finished).
Except for one thing.
It's a long weekend.
And I have a La-Z-Boy recliner.
