I spent most of september sick. Kids went back to school and brought some ‘guests’ aka colds lol.
Still alive, still planning. been doing a lot of gaming since brain just isn’t braining right.
Today has been kind of hit & miss with pretty much everything. I got a little bit of housework done, I got a little bit of site updates done (I don’t care for WP’s new post editor. It’s stupid. just plain STUPID*.) and a little bit of editing/layering done. It’s late, but I’m going to try to get some words before I crash. It gets frustrating, I want to do MORE but it was just too busy.
And as I was grumbling to one of the kids about it, he pointed out, in the wisdom only a ten year old has, that a little bit goes a long way. I got more done than when I started. He had a good point. Sometimes we want to DO ALL TEH THINGS but even a little bit helps. Even if it isn’t what you expected.
Writing: Did a bit of layering, cleaned up a few typos and, I think, filled in a minor plot hole. I’m about to work on the next chapter. Which should bring me into the homestretch.
Reading: none, outside of filling out back to school paperwork for the kids.
Final thoughts: the other day I did a word count tally of both E1 & BP. (BP = The Bastard Prince aka current WIP aka Zandercrack & E1 = Elemental Truth ) Both books are in the 80ks, both I’d set goals for 100k. If I can keep a strict writing schedule (stop laughing, folks, a writer can dream, right?) I can knock out both books by Oct 1. Or at least hit 100k on both of them.
So that’s sorta my goal for now, knock both of them out, toss them at the editor and prepare for NaNo which I’m considering diving into this year.
I hope you all are having an okay week. For those of you affected by Dorian, *hugs* stay safe folks. and overall,
Be kind to one another
* I went looking for a plugin to use the old editor because the new one was so effing enragey stupid I consider it just plain borked.
Today I watched my kids head off to school. This summer felt so long. I always have mixed emotions on the first day. These are my babies only… they’re not babies. They’re fast growing little humans. While I do miss them, I’m always a bit relieved. They’re kids, they talk. A lot. Sometimes the noise is just a wee bit too much lol.
Writing; just about 250 words on BP. I’m beat, so once this post is up I’m calling it a night. BP is almost done. It’s a strange and exciting feeling knowing that I can finish it within the month.
Reading; started on a project a pal sent me. So far it’s good. Beyond that I hesitate saying anything about it except there is, to my knowledge, nothing else like it anywhere.
Hope y’all had a good day.
Be Kind to each other.
The first monday of the year. Happy happy joy joy.
I hope y’all had a great holiday season. Ours was busy. I’ve been writing (yay)! Slowly getting back to a routine. Baby steps. This year I’ve got some fairly simple goals;
I have some plans, but I’m going to take it slow. Not overwhelm myself like I have in the past. Baby steps.
Hope y’all are having a great new year.
Life grinds on.

Life; I was so caught up in going to school I forgot today (yesterday/the 13th) was our 13th wedding anniversary. ??♀️ my hubs didn’t. He came home (working nights) with a bouquet and his first words to me this morning was Happy Anniversary.
I got an awesome hubs.
School was awesome! I’m excited about this new direction.
Writing; not much. I did scribble some notes down about a couple things I need to double check on in E1 but it got late and 7:30am comes early.
Reading; school stuff.

Life: It was a mostly relaxing day today. I read. I reread The Bastard Prince or what I have of it. I noticed some typos, made notes on it the nearly screamed when I realized I ended mid sentence. XD Aside from that (and the usual ferrying kids to and from work) it was a pretty laid back day.
Writing: I managed to get the next chapter of E1 up over on Wattpad. Finally. I’ll be wrapping up the next chapter and posting it here in a couple days.
Reading: see above.

Life: Orientation was interesting. The class is small and I like the staff. Very excited about this new step. This afternoon I ran to the grocery store with the youngest two and on our way out, as I was loading the groceries into the trunk, the skies let loose a deluge. I got an early shower. Dear dogs it was cold!
Writing: Currently doing a typo check on the new chapter for wattpad and hoping to get more words in if I can get the kids to leave me alone long enough LOL.
Reading: None today

Man I lost a week somewhere. Aren’t summers fun? Lol
Life; Been playing taxi for kids. It’s amazing how tired I get just from running teens to work and errands.
Tomorrow at 10am is MY orientation for school then I start monday. I am excited and terrified all at once.
Writing; working on E1 right now actually. I have some other ideas I want to tackle soon.
Reading; reread The Black Company Omnibus by Glen Cook. If you haven’t read it, you should. The series is phenomenal.
