Writing:

And another day like the last two.  I’m gonna blame it on the meds that I’m currently on.  Concentration is all over the place, and writing is like pulling teeth.  If this carries on, I’m going to have to resort to drastic measures, like cutting myself off from the internet.  Horror.

Real life:

Two loads of laundry.  Contemplated the garden.

Writing:

Another day much like yesterday.  I’m writing in fits and starts, which always makes me feel like I’m not doing much of anything.  But I am.  I need to remind myself that not every day is going to go smoothly.  Therein lies the hardest part of writing - the need to keep going on days when it doesn’t feel easy.

Real life:

Managed a walk this morning, which felt really good.  Did the grocery shopping.

Concentration has been a bit awol today, but I got decent words written.  That’s all I can ask for :)

Real life:

Not much, since I am exhausted (damn infections).  I did manage to henna my hair, though.  Oh, the glamour!

Writing:

I am finding, to my pleasant surprise, that I really like this book.  And am doubly keen to write its companion book.  This is a vast difference from muddling around with Reqiuem.  I guess the writerbrain knows what it wants to do.

I’m actually merging two different drafts on this one – I’d changed one character in the last draft, and it never really worked.  I think she’s happy to be back as a major player :)

Real life:

Doctor’s appointment which ate up a chunk of my day.  Despite that, I still managed to get a decent amount of work done.

The weather is much better today, though still a bit humid.  I like the warm weather, but you can keep the humidity, thanks.

Writing:

I am really excited about working on this novel again, which is a good sign.  There are some major holes that need to be fixed, and my mind is spinning with all the different options right now.

It’s been a while since I’ve looked at this manuscript, and I’m pleased that I still like the concept and the characters.  That makes me a happy writer girl.

It’s weird to look at it as draft five.  Originally, I had two different stories intertwining in this novel.  Last draft, I yanked out one entirely.  I hope to be able to write a companion book to this one with that storyline.  And maybe a third book where the two meet.  I’m a sucker for trilogies, it seems.

Also, this novel needs a new name.  I have no idea what it is yet.

Real life:

Getting up early failed this morning, mostly due to sleep interruptions due to the husband getting called out to work.  I won’t complain, because I wasn’t the one who had to actually go *out* and work.  Poor guy hasn’t had hardly any sleep all weekend.  It sucks.

The weather is continuing to suck, too.  Really hot and humid today.  Our air con (evaporative) is just barely working, and allowing me to not melt completely.  Cleaning the house this morning was an interesting exercise, though.  I kind of want to put in a separate reverse cycle cooling unit somewhere on days like today.

Tomorrow is going to be not fun, too.  Weather will be not quite as hot, but just as humid.  And I have a doctor’s appointment smack in the middle of the day.  I don’t know if any decent work is going to get done tomorrow.  We’ll see.  Maybe I can keep my brain cool enough :)
