Sunday Night, Monday Morning

This has been a good weekend.  Yesterday was D&D Game Day.  Everyone survived the Old_Acquaintance_film_posterencounter and a couple of bad guys died along the way.  Information was shared that needed to be, and laughter was heard ringing out through the house.  It was a good day.

The Husband, however, has pushed himself further than he needed to go, but he worked and was successful.  This made him too sore and pained for us to go to church, but he rested.  He needed it far more than I.

It is strange to be the one in less pain than everyone else in the household.  We are all adjusting.

Now I am going to roam the Internet for a while and wait for a Bette Davis movie, Old Acquaintance, to come on at Midnight.

Progress

So far, the novel is currently 6,842 words with constant writing for the past three days.  I am going to try and get some more words done tonight before hitting the hay.  I’ve done one full chapter today and a half.  Heading toward another one now.

Today Feels Like Friday

Don’t you hate it when days feel differently than the day they’re supposed to be?  I 20160528_150924.jpgnormally don’t complain about any day feeling like Friday.  What’s not to like about Friday?  The weekend is here.  Usually, The Husband is off for the next couple of days and we can hang out together with some of our friends and we go to church.  It is just….  Today isn’t Friday.  It is Wednesday.

Wednesdays are days for writing and research and being productive as a writer and sweeping and dusting for housewifely endeavors.  So far I haven’t done either today.  Not until now.  I promised myself I would blog and then write.

Blogging before writing, putting words down on the story, of late has been a wonderful catalyst.  If I tell the blogosphere and The World Wide Web I am going to write, well, I feel obligated to do so.  I don’t know why it works, but it does.  For me.

Yesterday I actually managed to get past a really tricky point in Chapter Two of the novel.  Now I just need to keep it moving whether or not it feels like Friday.

*sigh*

Head Above The Stormy Waters

Yesterday was a horrible day for emotions, especially mine.  WP_20160314_19_06_50_Pro

Things got to me yesterday.  I couldn’t see the sun for the storm clouds, and they were mighty dark.  There was also a lot of lightning.  Metaphorically speaking.

Today a semblance of hope returned.  And words.

Words are pouring out for the story/novel.  The story is progressing, and, when I am able to sit and do some serious writing, the word count increases in leaps and bounds; although, I must admit, I wish they were doubling more than what they are.  There is time for me to write on most days, but some days the wheelchair needs to be unplugged in front of the laptop so I’ll do some work!
