Hello all. I’ve returned. Another week older, and hopefully wiser, but who’s to say?
Anyway there isn’t much to talk about. As usual I’ve completed my assigned writing for the week, which isn’t much really. We grow the book each time we write, and we are still a ways away from completion. Again the percentage that I put at the end of each post is related to the word count goal that was set for the book. We are certainly going to go beyond that as there are many things that need to be written. That is a good thing really, as there will be things edited, and likely cut to make the story flow better. My previous books went through the same thing, though perhaps they needed pruned a bit more. This one will likely be getting more attention for that reason, but we aren’t there yet.
The previous week was filled with less sleep, and more things that needed to be dealt with in the day. I’m not one who sees the sun often, and it left me exhausted most of the week. Luckily I was able to eventually get some rest, though it was spotty even over the weekend. It’s hard to maintain contact when everyone else in the world, or at least the majority, are asleep when I’m awake, and awake when I’m asleep.
When I first began this night-time journey I felt isolated and alone most nights, but I think I’ve gotten mostly used to it. I’m still a little sad that the people I used to be able to talk with are no longer something that I can look forward to most weeks, but this is just my life now. I still have a few who I either see or message every now and again, and for them I’m thankful. Of course it’s partly my fault that I don’t contact more friends, but I feel like I might either wake them, or seem unresponsive if I don’t reply immediately, so I mostly don’t. I’m either too tired when I see a message, or I have nothing to add. So to any of you who try to contact me throughout the day, I’m sorry. Also I generally don’t get messages at night, as there is no signal where I am most times.
So what do I do with my life, you might ask. Mostly I read, write, or watch movies/television programs. I don’t play many games, so that isn’t taking up much of my time. Perhaps I should focus more on writing when I’m free, but again, I’m tired. The only day I feel rested has been Monday’s, as I can get to bed early, and wake up relatively early to put in the time before work. This is why this blog only really gets updated then. As it is I’m a little behind today, so I’m probably going to stop here.
I hope you all have a great week, and I’ll see you here next time.
