Stolen time

My household, minus me, has the day off. That’s okay, because it should be a quiet day at the office due to the holiday. It does mean that I need to steal my laptop back from Elder Youth in order to make this post.

Yesterday was the start of Hermitcraft, season five. I am appropriately excited, and I let it interrupt my day as a result. However, I got quite a bit written, including coming up with another entry for A Brief History that had been stumping me.

I wrote 295 fiction words, and 620 total words.

I also did quite a bit of research on some stuff for the blog here, and on how I can use my Instagram account to my advantage. I have two – my personal one, but also one for IVEYbooks. I put most of my bullet journal stuff there, and I’m going to start adding some new ideas that have me kind of excited. I’ll probably end up cross posting some stuff here as well.

It’s going to be awesome.

Well, I said I’d return the computer in about twenty minutes, and my time is almost up. My mind is full of things I want to do, so I’m going to make note of them so this evening doesn’t end up a waste as Fridays so often do.

Love!

Making grunty noises that don’t mean anything

Good morning! I’m significantly more awake than yesterday, which is a good thing. Even though I was exhausted, I got caught up in a good book. I started to cry, and my husband asked if it was a sad one. I told him they all were. At least the good ones.

If you want to speed through a book, laugh a bit, enjoy a heroine that talks back, and then cry your eyes out, I’d recommend reading what I just read: When Beauty Tamed the Beast, by Eloisa James.

Very nice.

So! I got sucked into a book (really didn’t mean to let that happen), my eyes felt like they were on fire and needed an ice mask, and I forced out a few words. Only 75 fiction, 334 total. I knew it would be a tiny week.

Except here’s a thought to chew on. I “knew” it would be a tiny week because I planned on getting lots of editing done. But I haven’t really done any. So I wonder if the fact that I’m actually writing less has to do with the fact that I “allowed” myself to write less this week. I’m starting to wonder.

Because I can get an awful lot done in a day if I’m organized. I’m keeping up with the #bujo, but I’m feeling unorganized.

Time to clear off the desk. Or move into the kitchen when it’s time to work. Either would be fine.

J – #AtoZChallenge

I’ll be honest. I couldn’t think of a single, valid entry for J. As I learn more about my feline companions, there may be information to share. For the time being, however, J was simply too much of a stretch.

Enjoy your day off.

Breaks, Oil, and Photographs

I have a friend who does amazing three item titles for her blog posts. She does it much better than I do.

Yesterday on the way to my writing group my breaks started sticking after I needed to stop suddenly in highway traffic. And I need an oil change, so I called my preferred shop. I called twice before I got through, and then they asked to call me back. A half hour before they closed they finally returned my call, so they must have been quite busy. (I’m not complaining, just noting.)

I wrote a bit – 167 fiction words that I need to completely rearrange this morning and 446 total words. I didn’t get much editing done, but I did get a coupon for a 50% off coupon for a stock photo subscription.

I’m torn. I could totally use the subscription. Right now hiring a cover designer is outside of my budget, but $50 for 300 images, assuming I remember to get them all in time, is exactly inside it. But Spot (my car) will need breaks, or at least something caliper somethingorother. Last night I think I had settled on not ordering the images, but now I’m double thinking that again. Because that’s what I do! Analysis paralysis for the win!
