Two days in a row

Blimey. I managed more than one day in a row. This is a minor celebration.

Listed four things on eBay and took photos of two more items, so that is going well. Still plenty of items to list. I should probably organize them more, but that smacks of non-useful fretting and I am trying to steer away from that.

I have to pack up because this weekend is my three day writing weekend. I get a hotel room for three days over Labor Day weekend and whenI am done, I have a novel. Or the majority of one. My goal for this year is to finish as many of my works in progress as I can. And of course I will start new projects if I feel the urge. It’s just an orgy of creation.

Would you look at that, the blog post is getting longer too. I might actually get the hang of this thing.

Until next time, cousins.

I remembered today!

The hardest part of starting a new habit is making it actually happen on a daily basis. I am sure once I actually get the hang of it, this will work. Of course, the best laid plans of mice and men…

anyway, yesterday I got two pages of a new story written down. It features a set of characters that I tend to go back to on a regular basis. I got to introduce two characters I have only ever referred to before, so that was interesting. And I have to figure out the timeline a little more clearly for one of the main characters’ life. (Awkward sentence construction is fun.) But it was new words and nearly 300 of them in no time, so go me!

Also listed 7 lots on eBay tonight. If I keep it up, I might be able to get through the piles of stuff that we are ready to release back into the world for someone else to enjoy.

Monday again

I had to refresh my Outlook calendar three times before I could believe that I didn’t have any meetings today. It was bizarrely quiet at work. Most disconcerting.

Also, open note to the dude I saw tonight skateboarding into an oncoming traffic lane wearing all black and a black baseball cap. You are fricking nuts and going to get you stupid ass killed if you keep doing that. Try thinking ahead and Bring something reflective with you.

I forgot yesterday, but…

In my defense, I was playing UNO with my friends and listing stuff on eBay. This decluttering gig can be tough. Especially when one loves thrifting.

Anyway, I am back on track and posting something today, even if it isn’t scintillating.

Almost forgot to post

Spent the day at a doll auction and listing on eBay. I am seriously tired though. Tired enough that I forgot to take shampoo into the shower.

I think early to bed and late to rise is the way to go this weekend. Lol.

Trying to get into a new habit

I am going to give this blogging thing another shot. I am pretty good about scheduling the Sunday Night Music feature, but actually blogging something not so much.

So tonight I am sitting and doing Dina layout proofs on a flash fiction and poetry collection. I am almost done with it. It has taken me far longer than it should have and that’s all on me.

Still, I am doing things and maybe someday soon I will actually get to all of the business type emails that have been sitting only inbox. This is an open apology to anyone I haven’t answered yet. I will get there. I promise.

That’s it for the first of what I hope to make a daily practice. Not something smart or stimulating, but a start and that’s what counts.
