So the hate train has pulled into the station and its occupants are poised to be in power for a minute. Those of us being hated feel some modicum of fear. I get that. I also get that in order to become really good at something, "you have to get terrible out of the way." … Continue reading This Morning’s Prayer
Alright - major life happening number two is this Saturday. Woot. Once that's out of the way, I'll take maybe another week or so to re-spawn as they say in Nerd Fitness. I've got to figure out the new plan as I will no longer be an "I" but a part of a "we". There's … Continue reading Almost There
I imagined I'd write horror. After all, it's what I read, what I watched (the classics mostly), what I felt most of my childhood (bullying and assorted other traumas); what I dreamt most nights. I wanted to be the monster under the bed for a change. But when I embraced my writing for real, what … Continue reading That’s It!
July Camp NaNo I was off to a pretty decent start - got a few words or so ahead of the game then didn't do a lick of writing these past two (or is it 3?) days. Sigh. So much going on right now (as you'll see below) that I'm living in "overwhelmed" mode. I … Continue reading Random Bits & Pieces, again
All it takes is one moment of reluctance and BAM, off the wagon I go. You see, I didn't want to break into my savings to cover groceries, so I didn't go to the grocery store. My ingredients on hand did not allow for adequate food prep for the entire week so here I sit, … Continue reading I’ve Fallen…But I Will Get Up
Nerd Fitness. FitBit. BuJo. Current stats: Weight - 208.1 Body Fat Percentage - 38.3% Add them all together and what do you get? My first time participating in a self-designed fitness challenge. Bring on the training montage (again). In a living room far, far, away... I've assembled my gear - no need to spend any … Continue reading Training to be a Jedi (sort of)
Working hard to hit the finish line and claim my badge today. Don't see any reason to drag it out until the end of the week. Besides, I have a few hours of "don't have to do anything" today so might as well knock this out and have the rest of the week to veg. … Continue reading Potential Title
So, I'm typing away at my Camp NaNo project right? Just going along as I usually do, mostly with my eyes closed listening (transcribing) as my characters deal with whatever situation they have me writing about at the time and then this happens, “And could it be you’ve felt guilty about leaving me all those … Continue reading O.M.G.
After restructure, cutting, pasting, and just as I predicted, not being able to find the section of notes I clearly remember having typed a year or so ago, I'm about 5K words behind where I'm "supposed" to be on day 18 of Camp NaNo. Oh well. The story's coming … Continue reading Quick Update (Supplement to previous post)
So, try as I might, I couldn't quite get this post to fit the metaphorical (?)...no, fictional...no...um, you know the fake letters from camp and such that I've been posting since starting my draft for Camp NaNo this month; I couldn't get this post to fit the way I wanted it to. I mean, I … Continue reading Dag Nabbit – Camp Journal, Day 18
