Ticking right along...

...on the novel. I'm up to 21K and I think I've gotten to about the halfway point. Maybe. Not sure yet. Sinead's finally gotten a handle on what the real basis of the crime is and it's her. Well, not her directly but the same old feud between the Delbhana and the Dana has started to play out in Atalya.

Pretty sure Sinead's going to wake up, decide that hell no, this will not fly and then go kick the world until it does what she wants.

Which is both very Delbhana and very Dana of her. Much fun having her have that sort of personality thing going on.

The hubby and I went out today. His office chair (he works from home 90% or more of the time and does far too much overtime) had hit the point of pain while sitting in it. So I decreed that new chair would be found this weekend. Last night we went out to dinner (and then got groceries super-late, thus no post) and tried at Office Depot. No luck there. None of the chairs worked.

So today we went to the mall and got lunch, then walked and bought spices, gummy bears, Lush and Legos. Then we went to Staples and found a chair that he can live with. They didn't have any in stock but there was free shipping and a sale on the chair so we ordered it to be delivered to our home on Tuesday.

Tomorrow's goals are laundry, write at least one chapter, preferably two, clean my bathroom, and avoid the heat as much as possible. We're in the 80s right now and dang, we are not prepared for it. Thankfully, I talked him into whole house AC a couple of years ago so we're not dying. Just every time we step outside it's ugh.

So, off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

Heads up

Qwertee has a really cool Wonder Woman design up today. Their sizes are cut pretty small, so keep that in mind.

I wanted to. But nope, it didn't happen.

Work was busy-busy. I had an audit to perform with one of our auditor trainees and it was a good bit more in-depth than I expected. I'd blocked out 2 hours for it and it ended up being 2 1/2 hours and I didn't even get the report written up. Oh well, it is what it is.

And then when I got home there was stuff to do with the hubby and things to clean up and a long walk after dinner so I didn't get much written at all. Only 1200 words. I am up to 14K, though, so I'm not worried about it. Not sure that I'm going to keep the twist that I just put into the story. I think it's too soon for it. Or maybe it's not right yet. We'll see. I'll think it over, sleep on it and then write more tomorrow.

Hopefully without cutting the words I wrote today.

Didn't get more homemade Lush made. I might go nuke some cocoa butter and mix it with jojoba oil before I run my bath, just to see how that goes. But probably not.

Goals for tomorrow include writing, getting the POD version of this week's story done since it didn't happen tonight, exercises, and maybe, if I have time, homemade Lush products.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

Another busy day

Work was busy enough, between meetings, that I got not one word written even on breaks. I did get 2400 words after dinner. Sinead has dealt with the issue of the transwoman and is now dealing with a surprising issue with her mother. Should be interesting to see how that plays out. I've no idea how long this story is going to be but right now I'm above 12K and just barely started. Just have to keep on writing until I find the ending.

And see if my internal sense that this all ties back into Sinead's Delbhana relatives is correct. Which would be cool if I can make it work out.

We'll see.

Got my steps today because the hubby had his mid-year performance review and needed to to babble while walking it off.

I'm kind of noodling on a new world in the back of my head. I'm not sure I'll actually write it anytime soon, though. I want to combine harems and veils with temperate rain forests like in the Puget Sound but I'm not sure how to do that yet. I need to figure out clothes and food and terrain and maybe draw a map or something. You know, in my copious amounts of spare time. I did do some doodles of potential ways of doing the veils (think bamboo / reed / straw woven hats that people wear all the time) but I don't know that I'd want to do it that way. Would everyone wear hats all the time? How would that affect their society? How the hell would I describe people's expressions???

I don't know. I'm still pondering it for now. More sketching may be necessary.

The one thing I did get done this morning before work started was that I got this week's short story into ebook format. Now all I have left is the POD format and I'll be ready to upload on Thursday. That's good even though no one is really buying the series. *sad sigh* Don't care. I enjoyed writing it and I'm going to share it even if no one sees and cares for a good long time.

Goals for tomorrow include writing, finishing the POD, exercises, making homemade Lush products, and that's about it.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

...mostly because of a very different verbal pattern from my own. But it's going. I got 2500 words today and Sinead's into the mystery. Actually two mysteries that she's not aware yet are related. I've no idea how they're related yet but yeah, they're related. Somehow. I'll find out as I write.

And I have an official transwoman character in the story so now I have to figure out how Atalyan society feels about trans people. But that's a job for tomorrow. My eyes are burning. It's definitely time to get off the computer.

Not to mention that my torn fingernail on my pinky is not making typing fun at all.

Got my steps today, which is good. Not so good is that I forgot that my mother's birthday is on Wednesday and I didn't buy her a birthday card this weekend. So it's going to get there late. Darn it.

Goals for tomorrow include sending out the card, writing, exercises, preparing for the audit this week, and maybe making some more Lush replacements in the evening. We'll see how I feel tomorrow after work.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

I've been feeling crappy and low recently, and I'm pretty sure one of the reasons why is that I'm so out of my routine that it's ridiculous. I know it's not the only reason but it's definitely one of the factors. So here we are, Monday morning. I'm up, showered and dressed. I'm ready for the day so lets get on with posting The Morning Wibble )

Plans for tonight involve going for a walk, doing a load of laundry and catching up on dishes. I also need to cook and prepare tomorrow's packup. And work on the (hopefully final) edits for my [community profile] stargate_summer fic.

But for now? I go to the work
