Stuck in a rut

106 fiction words, 369 total words

Yesterday at work I was rushing to get everything done. Yesterday at home I was finishing the things I hadn’t gotten done at work. After that I was trying to come up with good cover art for the short I have to publish and was failing, miserably. Since I’m going out of town I’d love to have that taken care of before, but it may not happen at this point.

Since I was failing at the cover art, I forgot to write until late. I added a few words onto the long fiction I’m stuck on, and called it a night.

Today will be trying to get ready for a short weekend trip, and then when I get back I’ll do more getting ready to go back to work, so I need to prepare to write in small bursts at the start and end of my days, which is likely all the time I’ll be able to carve out.

I don’t know what to do about the cover, though.

Randomness: Health & Body

So random question – I’m thinking of maybe sort of recording digitally, through blog or photos or video or all three, my current poking and plodding through the new-to-me world of vegetarian foods, frugal eating, health, exercise. I’m unsure where to home it. I think Instagram and YouTube hold the most promise in terms of potentially monetizing things in the future, but I’m not certain I’m up to trying to keep up with another set of platforms. I like having my blog here, and I like being able to put whatever I want here (on Nickified.com – I know it also goes elsewhere), but this is me and writing, not me and health, food, or fitness.

Do you think I should just set up a side blog?

Or if I do this, should I keep it here with perhaps a special featured image and content behind a “More” tag so people who aren’t interested don’t have to slog through it?
