16th-Jan-2017 12:06 am - A day of mostly rest
bunnies

I did laundry today. Made my shopping list but didn’t go out. Drifted off into a nap late afternoon.

Words written today: 107

Yep, that’s it. No other stats. I’ll pick up again tomorrow.

snow falling on dogwoodToday went better than expected, mostly because there was a power outage last night. Sounds weird? Very early this morning, there was the power outage, so I shut down the computer and turned off the UPS. When our daughter got up this morning, she didn’t know how to turn it back on, so she went downstairs instead, leaving the computer to me for the day.

bunnies

Okay, yes, posting this early Saturday morning, but I don’t care. Haven’t been to sleep, so it still counts for Friday.

Tired and grumpy today. Grumpy, grouchy, grunchy. So I didn’t exercise or meditate. I did copyedit another article, though, and I hit a good run of words. Hoping to keep that up over the weekend, but we shall see.

13th-Jan-2017 05:06 pm - Trying to think clearly
bunnies

Last month, I talked about Benjamin Hardy’s morning routine. One of the things he talked about was meditation or prayer.

Then I started looking at Tim Ferriss’s latest book, Tools of Titans, and he mentioned that among all the people he interviewed — executives and leaders in many fields — meditation stood out as one of the tools that a majority of them use. I read the section on Mind Training 101, where Tim talks about a bunch of different options, and then i read Chade-Meng Tan’s suggestions on where to start (next section of the same book).

I did get the article copyedited and the pictures printed and picked up. Not so great on the words, though, and I’m trying not to dwell on being almost a week behind where I want to be.

11th-Jan-2017 11:45 pm - Wacky Wednesday
bunnies

Two-hour delay for the schools, plus testing that my son doesn’t have to do, so he’s home all day, plus hunting for a set of pictures for the timeline my daughter’s doing in school only to discover I have to jump through hoops to convert an old photo library to something useful plus figure out how to save a still from a movie as an image file, and getting my daughter’s Brownie uniform set with badges … I barely got to the paying work today and felt like tearing out my hair trying to figure out if the authors are making a meaningful distinction between no-crack and non-crack, or if that’s just inconsistency.

I did eventually get words, at least a few. I’d like to say I’ll get more tomorrow. But first I need to finish that copyediting and order photo prints over at Walgreens from the digital files.

Not sure of the pages read — I grabbed a library book on my way out the door to take my daughter to Brownies. Read a chunk. Am enjoying it. Might even get it finished before it’s due.

Now, as Katie Scarlett said, tomorrow is another day.

10th-Jan-2017 11:50 pm - Onward, little words
bunnies

A lot of watching the weather today. School district canceled after-school activities because of “impending inclement weather,” so I kept check the forecast and watching the skies. Saw a few flakes of snow. No ice. And now it’s raining, which will melt what snow we did get this past weekend. My kids are going to be very bummed in the morning.

If I keep working at it, I might get my average to 2k/day by the end of the month. Just keep writing, right?

10th-Jan-2017 12:19 am - Monday lingers
bunnies

Okay, so the reason Monday lingers is because it’s actually past midnight, making it Tuesday, but this is still my Monday update.

My average is still going down. Have to do something about that. On the other hand, I crossed 50,000 words in the book today, which is a nice milestone.


Oh, yeah, and I made a tasty spatchcocked chicken for dinner.

8th-Jan-2017 11:10 pm - Sunday starts anew
bunnies

Still not a ton of words. In addition to my normal Sunday chores (groceries and laundry), I undecorated the Christmas tree and watched the surprise flurries we got, and after dinner, we watched Finding Dory because our daughter wanted us to watch one of the movies we got for Christmas.

Thinking that maybe I’ll try to up my weekday goal and acknowledge not as much will get written on weekends. How that’s going to work with also doing more freelance work over the next couple of weeks, I’m not sure.

At least, a struggle to focus on getting things done I should.
