Wednesday Goodness

It’s been a few days of not feeling well, back in the sun (big mistake), going to bead early, and a doctor’s appointment early this morning. I was surprised I woke up that early, AND that I haven’t gulped down a large latte yet.  I did have a cup of coffee this morning, and that seems to be enough for me at the moment.  Oddly, when i don’t have a latte, I go to bed early. When I do have them, I tend to be awake for a while–like 2:30 AM without a hint of sleep in my system.

I’m grateful I went to sleep early, and that I wasn’t too groggy last night.  Mind you, I don’t like mornings, but I needed to see the doctor.  Learned my blood pressure is up, and that’s not good. Mind you, it’s not at a critical level, but I need to reduce that.

Spent a few days writing off/on for the novel, and it’s been like little visitations, then I’m off.  One thing that’s occurred to me is the main antagonist never shuts up.  he is in my head with lots of indignant comments that I put down when I can, but I am like dude, you’re killing me.  Shut up!  LOL  Lil bastard was like, “Excuse me? Where he hell do you get off? Read the marquis. I’m the headliner.”

Yes, he sassed me, but I love it. He’s too grown for his own good.  His comeuppance can’t arrive any sooner.   LOL

Happy creative endeavors.

 

Monday

For the record, instead of spending all day gaming-and Smite does have a double XP event all weekend long-I did some writing. One of things I was inspired to rewrite is my synopsis for the novel. Essentially what happens in the story.  This process takes far longer than I imagined, since I have no real timetable, and inspiration hit me this morning as well. Try getting dressed while typing out info. It’s a real good challenge.

That said, my allergies are in rare form. I rend from stuffy nose, to runny nose, to eyes watering and burning.  Imagine writing or gaming while highly distracted by burning eyes. I didn’t let this steal my joy, and pushed through. I also took allergy meds to help myself. It takes a moment before it kicks in and I feel it.  Then my nostrils will feel raw/sensitive to everything.

At the moment, I may need a latte to offset my somewhat sluggish mood. I’d rather go back home to sleep and wake up some time late.  That couldn’t happen today, so I’m gonna think positive. Contemplate getting that latte, and try to stay on point.

As always, happy creative endeavors.

PS On My Novel Writing

Hello All,

I am still working on the novel. I wanted to do a brief update, so as to not lose track of my progress. Yesterday, on my way to lunch, I had this idea for the MC’s background. Not radical makeover of an idea, but rather filling out who he is, and what he does.

I quickly pulled out my phone and added it to a doc app.  This new phone has a weird auto-correct, so I had to take my time and write out a few lines.  Pulled the doc out later, and elaborated on this. About to do some more work on this aspect.

It makes sense to me, this direction, and I’m glad for the random bit of inspiration while zoning out and thinking only of food. I was hungry, and on a budget. LOL

Still obsessed with Smite item building, though.  LOL Maximize potential.

As always, happy creative endeavors.

Friday

Woke up feeling like this Friday is a hot mess of waking up early (after going to bed late) and feeling like I’m not gonna be good this week. Never mind that I forgot to purchase some allergy meds when I had the chance, or that I have’t used the Netti pot to clear out my sinuses for the last two days. I am now known as the house of mucus. Gross. But funny, cause I know better.

That said I’m hearing voices. Character voices, and I’m like, talk to me.  Main character for the novel has a voice that I like, and will keep.  The villain has his voice down as well. Next, the MC’s ally has her voice, and a secondary character has her voice as well.  I missing several voices, however, before I know it, I’ll hear them too.  BTW this is the only acceptable time you’ll ever hear me condoning hearing voices.  If’s it’s not for a story, then I’d back away from the person, or their blog.  I jest cause I love peeps, and humor makes me feel good.

Today has been one of those days where I’m gonna go home, and I am positive I am going to lay down, but inside I know that’s a lie. I’m gonna play video games, cause a man my age should be out dating, and having drama that he’ll put in his stories that he’ll be sued for in the future by a bitter ex.  And she will be bitter cause I’m gaming, not dating, and didn’t watch the Lifetime made for TV movie with her.  I also binge watched the shows without her.  I’m a terrible fake boyfriend. To be fair she fake cheated on me with a cooler nerd, so gaming is my safe space.

That said it is Friday, I need to drink more water, and I think I have the library pretty much to myself now. Which means it will be a bigger safe space, cause libraries are wonder resources that are for the people.  No gaming though, which is a bummer, but what can I say. Time and place for everything. You wouldn”t take a shower in the rain on a city street, would you? I mean the rain water’s usually icy cold, and looks dirty.  It’ll like washing off in mud.  Time and place for your outer freakishness.

Happy creative endeavors.

 

Listing

I have a lot of lists to work on.  They were to do things I decided that were important enough to write down yesterday, and review today to modify as needed. I even made a dinner menu to work on for the upcoming months.

I need to get to work on this . It won’t be too consuming, but I’m a get some stuff done.  I aim to have things completed or on a strong daily rotation with deadlines.

Happy creative endeavors.

Hello

It’s one of those days where the sun hits the concrete just right, and it’s so damn bright my eyes can’t take it.  Needless to say, I have to cross the street with the correct traffic, and my poor eyes suffer. Then I walk into a building that is darker and i can’t adjust properly.  I feel like a hot damn mess.

Now, not too much went on yesterday in regards to writing fiction.  However I had some notes I took from a seminar on being a project manager/admin assistant–which was to improve my job skills.

I transcribed the notes and it ended up being five pages!!! I had no idea I took that much notes. With my handwriting it took two pages, as I sectioned off each topic in its own area then moved onto the next.

Something repeated in my notes was embracing change as opposed to be resistant.  I am very interested in the logistics of events, so I need to know about events and how things work.

I need to go over these notes because clearly this is far more information than I realized, and I think I can get more out of the seminar if I keep reviewing the material, and scribbling my own notes/thoughts on them.

As always, happy creative endeavors.

I Lost My Wallet

Four words I never want to utter, nor think about. Yet today I did. Was sure my wallet was in my pocket, as I placed it there, or at least I thought I did when I was distracted.

Needless to say this morning as I knocked over some papers, bent to pick it up, I dropped my wallet in the process.  Without realizing this, I walked outta the house, got to work, and didn’t have a clue.

Of course, I needed to get some coffee, and I reached for my wallet, only to find it wasn’t there, and I had no clue as to where I misplaced it.  I retraced my steps, and it wasn’t outside.  I went into panic mode.  I got permission to go look for it, and went home thinking it may have fallen in my patio.

Over time I found where I dropped it, which was a relief, but I was rather dismayed that I could have potentially had my info and bank card stolen.  That’s all I need within the course of my day to be saddled with the drama of freezing my card, replacing my items, and just feeling ok.

Since I was able to calm down some, I’ve been trying to be grateful and should do some writing, which I haven’t, but for me, starting with a blog post helps put me in a writing frame of mind.

Happy creative endeavors.
