Constitutional Law. There are many sources of law: common law, statutes, regulations, and court rules. But in the United States, all of them are limited by the Constitution, which creates the framework for how governments operate. If a law violates the Constitution, it's not a law at all.

So a mannequin is walking through the mall with her husband and there's a really beautiful mannequin in a shop window. She catches her husband checking out this hottie and say, "Hmmph. Those are fake."

Put in 2,103 words on my novel tonight. Not a bad start for my NaNoWriMo project, although since I started late, I am far behind all of my writing buddies, who are already up to over 10,000 words each. I'll really be pushing it to make the 50,000 mark by the end of the month. Fortunately, the entire book has just over 15,500 words total at this point, but I don't think I get to count the 13,000 I had from last year towards this year.    :-)

So .  . . anyone use yWriter? Thoughts on it? Seems like a good organization tool, but I'm not sure how well it works as something to actually write a story or novel in.

I used it for a while, but ultimately I went back to the good old handwritten notebook and OpenOffice. I prefer the natural chaos of my notebook.

Actually, I've been writing my short stories in Notepad++, even.

So, yesterday, the prosecutor refused to make an offer on my client's felony case. Therefore, we insisted on holding a preliminary examination. Prosecutor tried to introduce lab reports. I objected as hearsay, noting I had already filed a timely objection. Judge dismissed the case.

Maybe, in retrospect, the prosecutor should have offered something.

Trying to get my NaNoWriMo on. Getting started six days late, and so far have five words. (Although, to be fair to me, I did write about 500 words on another project the other day while I was waiting in court . . . ) Don't think I'm gonna make it to the goal . . . but I'm still gonna try!

I got started almost a week late due to being in a  production of "Evil Dead: The Musical", then I got sick, THEN my computer at work died so I had to spend hours I had planned to spend writing trying to fix it, instead . . . and now that I, in theory, have some time to get started, people keep coming into the room literally every five minutes and interrupting me. How's a guy supposed to write under those conditions?

Ironically, the most dangerous thing about swordfighting thus far seems to be the hand guard that wants to chew up my hand.

Story
Introduction
Owner and managing attorney at Shelton Legal Services, PLLC in Fenton, Michigan. I practice primary litigation law (including trial work and appeals) and have a special passion for criminal defense and constitutional law. Having said that, my practice is "general" in nature, and in addition to handling trials and appeals, also draft wills, draft and review contracts and business agreements, represent client in landlord-tenant disputes, handle child support and child custody cases, and do most of the things a lawyer would do. I am located in Fenton, Michigan, but travel around the state on cases.

Oh, yeah: I also do some acting and voice work from time to time. Additionally, I design websites, produce radio spots, and design print advertising part-time at my other company: Twilight Media & Design, LLC.
