Infidelity

So, I have to admit something.  Something dark.  Something, well, life changing. I've been having an affair.  Nothing too serious, just some casual fun with another.  She's been in my life since late fall.  Although we haven't had too many chances to get together, the few times we have, it's been glorious, but short, way …

Laundry Day

Yeah, I have the wonderful song Laundry Day from Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog in my head this morning.  Perhaps due to the fact that I have a giant pile of laundry to fold this morning. . . Or perhaps because it just randomly pops in my head, usually when catching up on my How I …

Rejuvination

So, I did absolutely no writing on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.  I feel kinda bad about it, but I did something much more important.  I slept.  This morning I'm feeling quite a bit better than I had been all the last few weeks, meaning I believe I can get much further on my writing in …

Reluctance

So, I feel today is going to be one of those days in which I don't move anywhere in the writing arena.  That's a terrible thing because the likelihood of me actually getting any writing done for the rest of the weekend is very unlikely. I don't know. . . my motivation is still strong, …

Refreshed

Wow, yesterday's post was pretty darn depressing, wasn't it?  Guess I should be taking my pills. . . probably need to get some pills while I'm at it. Feeling a ton better today.  Yesterday was, overall, a crapshoot, but I did get just slightly shy of 40,000 words, which makes me very happy. Also got …

Reality

Ugh, so I'm feeling a massive dose of reality this morning. It's not like I didn't realize how difficult it really is to make a living as a writer.  Although I have these high dreams of getting some sort of amazing six figure advance on the first book I sell, I'm well aware of the …

Procrastination?

So, I know I already wrote on here today and definitely have no need to do a writing warmup, as I have pulled out another whopping word count for the day, 5500! Maybe I just want to brag that I'm moving forward on things so well.  Maybe I'm so excited about the fact that I …

Employment Sucks

So, getting back into the swing of things now that I'm actually back to doing my real job, sucks. I'm finding it very difficult to have the stamina, energy, willpower, whatever, to actually work.  Knowing that I am probably going to take an extended leave of absence this summer doesn't really help anything.  It just …

Life :-( again

So, here I have to go again saying that I'm going to once again be behind on my writing goals.  Friday was a killer of a day and I ended up being 1000 words short of my goal, putting me at a week end total of 24,000 words, instead of my intended 25,000, and much …
