Today was one of those days, when it seems prudent to crawl back into bed. I tossed and turned last night, finally resorting to one of my surefire insomnia fixes, a shower, at 3am. It worked, a bit too well, actually, as I slept through/turned off the alarm at 5am. I woke up at 8:30am, with my still-damp hair deciding to model Frankenstein’s bride, without the white streak, but close. The day job is continuing the trend of just being a little too late and a little too disorganized, frizzy hair flapping in the wind as I rush about.
So, breathe. I’m still in simmering phase. Again, it isn’t a bad thing, but it’s so dang unmeasurable.
Writing: I did start pulling together notes for some scenes, and writing some key moments, so those baby steps are going well. I’m not up to a page a day on each of the WIPs, but it’s still a good goal.
I also received a blog award from J Keller Ford, (thank you, Jenny!) which I need to post. I have been working on answering the questions. I write in order to concentrate on other people, not me, so I find these questions difficult, but worthwhile. I will marshal on. So now I have three blog posts simmering away; I hope that I can get some of them polished before the next check-in.
I’ve been reading about blogging and author platforms the last few days, and have inched closer to making a decision about what to do.
Community: I’m better at replying to comments, and I am doing better at commenting on other’s blogs. Twitter has fallen by the wayside, sadly. I need to figure out a schedule that doesn’t make me sound like a bot or a pest.
Exercise: I’m eating better at work, which requires more planning than I like. It’s a good thing that most of the food court at the student union is closed for the summer, as I shouldn’t be eating that stuff anyway, but it makes crazy days like today difficult. Time to cut up veggies for lunch–I think not! The next goal is hydration.
Personal: I was in contact with some of the family and friends that I’ve neglected the past few weeks, so that was good. I find that FB can be a black hole, scooping me into its dark embrace, but I’m trying to find the balance there. I need to go back into Triberr to see if I can find my way through the maze, but not yet. I need to gather provisions for that trek!
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend. Please encourage some ROWers who can be found here.
