This week was a head spinner for some reason. The heat and humidity definitely did an energy drain. So, I didn’t get as much done as I wanted in terms of writing. It’s a weird sensation to think that there weren’t enough hours in the week, but feeling like time just crawled due to stress. Things went off the rails at one point and, if you can believe it, I’m probably more stressed than I was before. Due to the sensitive nature of the incident, I can’t mention it online. All I can say is that it was bad and the fallout is still going on.
Plus side, the little guy turned 7 on Thursday. We didn’t do too much because it was a school day, but his party is today. I think everything is ready and will probably triple check throughout the day. A morning appointment will help me get out there for gas and a few smaller errands. So tired that the extra push is welcomed. The little guy is excited and already playing with the new toys that came in from family. Pretty sure getting him to bed will a challenge depending on the new stuff he gets. That’s the core of the weekend here, so we’ll see what else happens.
Really nothing else to talk about here. My goals are staying the same due to the summer and I’ve been a homebody worker most of the time. With the weather sucking and the kid in a shorter school day, I can’t do much. It really boils down to a choice between writing and errands, which is why I do only 1-2 chapter sections a day. If I’m lucky, I can finish Chasing Bedlam this week and maybe find some beta readers. That will be tricky since it’s a sequel and I’m learning this is a personal taste story. I might put up a teaser for this book on Tuesday since the character bios are done. That does bring up a question:
Should I bring back Questions 3?
The reason I ask is because it wasn’t doing too well near the end. I had trouble coming up with questions and many people simply responded to the topic instead of the actual questions. I was wondering if putting thought into 3 questions was worth it if so many weren’t touching on them. Maybe I’ll just chop it down to one main question and follow up with two minor ones like why, who, what, etc. Guess I could leave Thursday blank too, but I’d like to having something. Anyway, I have . . . no time to really think about this.
Goals of the week?
- Write and possibly finish Chasing Bedlam.
- Cooking, biking, and hating the weather.
- Go over post topics for September.
- Prepare to see Suicide Squad next weekend.
- Pray something goes in my favor and the current disaster doesn’t get worse.
For anyone who missed it, here is the teaser for the Charms of the Feykin cover:
