How Can a Week Feel Long and Short?

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?

  1. Write and possibly finish Chasing Bedlam.
  2. Cooking, biking, and hating the weather.
  3. Go over post topics for September.
  4. Prepare to see Suicide Squad next weekend.
  5. 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:

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. This week was the same for me, it felt never-ending and yet somehow it flew by to Saturday.


  2. I’m right there with you. Keep at it, you’re doing a great job. The teaser cover looks great btw. And (speaking of time flying) happy birthday to the little guy!


  3. So does that mean Jason is staying on as cover artist? It looks really intriguing.


  4. I personally didn’t care for questions 3, it didn’t interest me.

    Love the cover! Very dynamic!
    Hope your son had a great birthday! Seven is such a fun age. What toys did he get?
    I liked the questions, but I’m okay with whatever you decide. I understand the difficulty in coming up with questions.


    • He had a lot of fun and made out with a bunch of toys. A wide variety too and we spent his gift cards yesterday to get books, a remote control Thomas train, Zootopia plushes, Wild Kratts toys, and a bobble-head Deadpool.

      I guess I’ll keep it retired until I start promoting the next book. I can gear it towards that, but it means I have no Thursday plans without it.

    What do you mean you toddler is 7? This is not allowed. Please inform him that I’ve said so.
