Just a few. I couldn’t make myself edit until today. I know all the Internet memes say keep writing every day no matter what. Instead of working on my novel, for a few days all I could do was journal. At least it was words being written somewhere.
I’m still working on Chapter 19. I think I’m at the point where I again have to ask myself what the point of the chapter is. This is how I edit. What am I trying to say in this chapter? Have I accomplished that? Am I way off target?
An opportunity is on the table with my day career. I have to decide if I want to take on more. It’ll mean a hit to my writing and probably my other activities, but it could be an amazing experience. I have to discuss it with my boss. Perhaps that discussion will help me make the decision. If I don’t take it, I’ll register for guitar in the fall.
I mainly spent the weekend playing Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 until I beat it and going through paperwork. My place is a mess given my fruitless search for my missing DSLR camera. I’ve changed my locks and have a locking cabinet for whatever I can fit in there. Things like this make me lose faith in humanity.
I also played Exploding Kittens with some good friends. I won the first two games and lost the third one. Each game became more strategic as we all started figuring things out. I went home thinking about how to play my hands in the future. I wish I could grasp the strategy for Magic the Gathering as quickly. Maybe I get overly analytical on a basic level with Magic and it stops me from getting things on a broader level. I like the challenge of learning things though, so I will get Magic eventually.
I don’t feel ready to go back to work tomorrow. I’m taking over a colleague’s project, which is fine, but with him off in Greece and the two contract people done, I’ll be the lone person in a 4-person cubicle area. I suppose I can practice martial arts with all the empty space when I need to stand up.
Well I think it’s time for sleep.
