A Pot Dispensary And Inspiration From Novelist Wayne Stinnett
SOMEWHERE ON THE ROAD IN OREGON – I woke up extra early because of a dream.
I dreamed that I was sitting on front of a MacBook Pro starting the first page of my first novel.
It’s actually my second novel. The first one was lost on a computer error some 20 years ago, so I took a break from writing it. I’ve been talking a lot to Wayne Stinnett, a very successful adventure novelist. I wrote a song for Wayne called “Rusty Anchor Bar & Grill;” it’s about a recurring fictional bar in the Keys that is featured in most of his books.
Wayne has been answering questions for me about writing and publishing and launching a novel. Hell he’s mentoring me!
So back to my dream. As I was sitting in front of my MacBook Pro (which I don’t have BTW), I wrote the title of the first book, “Blue Waters.” The main character then appeared on the page, Rick Waters. It was so real, I bolted out of bed and started writing it. Before I knew it, I had written 1,500 words, about a half a chapter. I was on fire.
Wayne says as long as I write 1,000 words a day I’m on schedule. I wanna release my first book by my birthday, Oct. 6th. At this rate it should happen.
All these travel blogs have really helped me get my writing flow back and I’m loving it. I plan on writing an Action Adventure – Sea Adventure Series. Each chapter will have a name instead of a number and each chapter I will also write a song and include a CD or Download depending on if it’s a paperback or ebook. I plan to write 12-13 chapters per book.
First chapter? “Filet & Release”, chapter two? “That Voodoo That You Do”. This is a new chapter In my life (excuse the pun) but I’m very happy about the path I’m taking.
So after all this writing I decided the birds needed a shower. I used a suction cup perch in the shower in the motorhome when it’s too cold to shower them outside. Trust me, it’s too cold. Plus it’s been raining here for 4 days!
I showered Chief first and he looked like a drowned rat. Then it was Marley’s turn. She hates showering. She squawked up a storm but settled in nicely after she realized there was no way to stop it. Harley is Kim’s deal and I can’t definitely say whether he got a shower or not because I made a quick run to Fred Meyers.
Since it was getting late in the day, we decided to head into Florence and check out a couple of spots that we have been wanting to go to but have always been closed when we go by. First stop? Premium Choice.
It’s a legal dispensary.
They are totally legal her and you don’t need a medical card. We wanted to check it out mainly out of curiosity because neither Kim or I are stoners. Well we are “Stoners” as in the Eric Stoner fan club deal. (You know what I mean).
The guy at the dispensary gave us a tour and was super friendly and let me film inside for my YouTube vlog, which I was shocked about but great! Since it’s legal I guess it doesn’t matter.
We only planned to take a tour but ended up buying a couple of 5mg chocolates. We got two Sativa and two Indica. Sativa, the tour guide explained is very being very active, getting stuff done. He ruled it with Satisfying projects. Get it? (Sati) the first four letters in Sativa and Satisfy.
He then said that Indica is for lying InDa Couch! More of a lose track of time but also help you sleep strain. Makes sense. We may or may not try it tonight. Depends who tired we are when the late night comes. I’ll let you know in the next post.
After our tour we drove to little locals spot called “The Hukilau”. It looks exactly how it sounds inside and outside. It has a cool Polynesian vibe and serves sushi and lots of Hawaii’s treats like Spam Musubi. Gross right? Nah, it’s delicious.
We still opted for the Poke! I’ve eaten plenty of Musubi in my day. I lived in Hawaii for three years and lived off the stuff. It’s a slice of Spam layered with sticky rice wrapped in seaweed. Gross right? Nah, it’s delicious. Seriously, I like it. It’s better than chicken strips!
We had a couple of drinks and headed home. I was still buzzing from my writing experience that morning. And it was not the weed!
