We’re already eleven days into March, and I’m finally feeling better, Daylight Savings Times’s attempts to rob me of sleep notwithstanding. It’s been a slow journey getting here, but I realized yesterday that I’ve had more energy lately and it’s been a while since I’ve had to battle brain fog. A few things are responsible … More Spring is in the air and I have so many plans
Last week was not a good week, y’all. Terrible weather, terribly unhealthy food choices and not nearly enough sleep all conspired together to leave me trapped in a morass of brain fog and lethargy. No writing got done, but I did manage to cobble together a potential cover for my Dominion sequel, so it wasn’t … More Writing and Self-Awareness and General Adulting FTW
Happy February! Groundhog day has already come and gone and while January seemed to drag on forever, now that it’s gone it’s like, wow, where did that month go? I’m still struggling to get my rhythm back with any kind of consistency. A big reason is that we’re still getting used to having a larger-than-we’re-used-to … More On an Absence of Rhythms, a Season of Interruptions, and Trying to Make it All Work
(Image by Steve Berry via Flickr Commons) This year did not go as planned. I mean, they never do, do they? But this one really went off the rails, starting with my mother’s stroke back in January, one whole week into what until then I thought was shaping up to be a pretty good new … More 2018: Not a roller coaster. More like a pinball machine.
We’re on a decluttering mission here at the Bauhaushold, and so the other day I spent an afternoon going through old journals and notebooks and came across this little gem that I’d scribbled in the front of a journal labeled “Ideas and Story Notes.” Writers… Writers write. Except when they sleep, Or dream, Or dance, … More Writers write. And do other stuff.
I’m officially caught up to where I need to be on my noveling projects. After typing up all of the scenes I wrote longhand for Ghost of a Chance, and re-using a slightly revised scene from an earlier draft, the word count currently stands just a hair short of 47,000, which puts me over the halfway … More All Caught Up
I let an entire week go by without an update, but I still don’t have any word metrics to share. It’s been a few days since I’ve written — I needed the weekend to rest, and with a lighter-than-usual freelance workload this week so far I’ve been taking advantage of that and the gorgeous weather … More Writing Update and Newsish Bits
Happy Monday, campers! I still don’t have any word metrics to share, because I’m still doing the longhand thing and I haven’t typed any of it up yet. I can tell you that I didn’t do any noveling over the weekend (although I did quite a bit of journaling). Actually, looking at the habit tracker … More Blame it on the weather (a Monday writing update)
Last week was another crazy and off-kilter one. I ended up having to work over the weekend in order to make an article deadline, so I took yesterday off from work work (and I didn’t even realize it was President’s Day when I made that decision) and used it to catch up on some house … More Monday Update (sans word metrics but now with pictures!)
Last week wasn’t a great week, especially for writing fiction. Pretty much every authoring or book marketing thing I’d planned to do past last Monday got devoured by runaway freelance projects . . . and this week is shaping up to be more of the same (actually this week’s getting off to a really rocky start thanks … More Short Story: The Cellar
