Journal

When all is dark
And the world asleep,
Then cunning-like
The thoughts do creep.

Warily I go
Through mist and mott and fen,
Guided by a candle-light
And the scratching of my pen.

Actually Getting Things Done!

Good morning, Readers!


How are you this morning?  I am feeling very well.


There are two main reasons for this.  The first is that I have cut processed sugar and wheat products from my diet.  It's only three days in, and I have, I confess, one teaspoon of sugar in my first cup of coffee for the day.  But one teaspoon a day isn't going to kill me all that much.  I'm looking to cut even that out next week.


I've been r...

Things Are Weird

Good morning, Readers!


How are you this morning?  I'm reeling a little bit.  Beta Reader Two quit rather unexpectedly last night, sending me a very brief message letting me know that she wouldn't be able to finish Beta Reading The Winter Wolf for me.  She attached the document with the notes she had thus far completed.


The notes are two weeks behind deadline (I was promised the beginning April).  She has had the manuscript fo...

Wet! Wet! Wet!

Good morning, readers!


I'm all proud of myself today.  I woke up early enough to go for a run this morning.  Not only was I awake early enough, I actually got dressed, put in my Zombies!Run app and actually went out for a jog.  Got a little father this time - 4.11km in half an hour.  I'm surprised at this, because I was not feeling in good form.  My left calf is still pretty tight and cramped up fairly quickly.


It was a ...

A Rough Week

Good morning, Readers.


It's been a pretty long week.  Friday was particularly odd, as I was having horrible guilt fits over something I had no control over.  Important cheques from work that were supposed to have been mailed on the 1st have not yet reached their destination.  The entirety of the mail for April 1st has yet to arrive, and these include work's rent cheque, parking fees to be paid, a cheque to the tax people... and more.  These are hugely imp...

Knowing this will invoke Martel's ire further, you swallow loudly and say, "I can see no way around this.  We should probably accept the pact."

At Least There is Coffee

Good morning, Readers!


Pro tip for you this morning:


If you intend to start running in the morning, be sure to set your alarm.  I did not do that.  And so I woke up too late to go running this morning.  I am very disappointed in myself.  If it's not pouring rain this evening, I'll go running after work.


Maybe.


To add to my disappointment with myself, I didn't manage to catch up on my writing last night...
