I was nearly asleep last night when I heard cats fighting outside. I was pretty certain that Bella was inside, but I got up to go check. She was inside and none of the kung-fu cats were mine. Thankfully. But then I couldn't get back to sleep. Last night had nothing to do with me … Continue reading It started with kung-fu cats
I reset my Surface this evening. It seems to be happy now. I have so much to catch up on from the show and not having my computer available that it's sad. I will get there. Eventually. About halfway through the day, my throat started to not feel well and its been getting worse. I'm … Continue reading Catching up can wait
Temmy wanted to cuddle early this morning -- about 4:30, which was fine, I suppose. But then she stretched and put her paw in my face. I don't like paws to the face and I haven't been able to break her of this habit yet. She has one claw that is really long and sharp … Continue reading Who needs sleep?
I was tired last night and went to be extra early. I'd been hoping to get a few more pages read than normal, and I did, but not without having to re-read several paragraphs. As I was setting my sleep apps, I told myself to set the alarms like I always do, but I was … Continue reading Why didn’t I set my alarms?
As I was writing my blog last night, I had an idea on the audio. I just had to give it a try. I'm pleased to report that it worked. There were a couple minor adjustments I needed to make, and a couple tweaks I made in the booth today. I recorded another short story … Continue reading Today feels better
I've been trying to enjoy the little things today, like watching the little black birds bathing in the large dark puddle of my neighbor's driveway, seeing a man smile as he passes a woman carrying a baby, and the chuckle of an old woman even though I don't know what she was laughing at. I … Continue reading A reason to get some sleep
Temmy tried to get me up early this morning. I should have listened to her. But no, I knew what was waiting for me and I didn't really want to get to it. As a result, it was a strange day today. I partially blame Mercedes Lackey too. I started reading her book, Joust, last … Continue reading Bookkeeping and covers
**Cue the Rocky music** I was down 5,700 words last night when I went to bed. I've written that much in a day before. I think my highest word count for non-fiction is 13,000 words in a day, but yes, that was 15 hours of straight writing. Someday, I might turn those words into a … Continue reading Making a comeback
The plan to get Temmy to sleep last night worked. With the exception that I had to hold her all night. If I rolled over, she came to the other side and bugged me until I let her cuddle next to me, usually with her head on my arm. Whatever helps us both sleep, right? … Continue reading Back in the running
I didn't write last night as I thought I would. I started to feel blocked on the project, tried another, but it didn't work out either. I thought about painting, but my mood was, by then, rubbed a little raw. Instead, I felt like doing some more audio work, so I did that. It felt … Continue reading Falling short this week
