Goal Post: Getting Right to the Point

I’ve been sitting here for about ten minutes thinking of what to say.  This week has been emotionally and physically draining.  I’m writing this post on Thursday night just because I want to focus on spending time with my son during the weekend.  I’ll still be responding to comments and social media, but it won’t be my top priority.  Sorry . . . Paused again to stare at how the skin of my hands can look almost scale-like.

The only writing I did was a single section I had 4 hours free.  I couldn’t play music because I was in a library and took the wrong headphones.  It was the set for my iPhone, which don’t hook up to my laptop.  So, I can’t be certain of how the scene went and I’m having some trouble with Clyde.  He’s much more mellow in the 4th book because of things that happened in the 3rd.  It’s kind of creepy to me because I never imagined him like this.  Makes me wonder what the rest of the story will be like, but it’s going to be a really slow process.  I plan on using the weeknights to work on War of Nytefall: Rivalry guest posts.  More on that tomorrow . . . I’m running out of steam.

Look, I’m going to be honest without revealing the whole story.  Again, I can’t without causing trouble.  That personal issue that’s been plaguing me since August has taken an ugly turn.  Even saying this can be taking a step too far.  All I can say is that it isn’t a situation that I’m in full control of and it could get worse long before it gets better.  It might take most of the year to settle.  The reason I’m mentioning it at all is because I know people are curious as to why my mood has been odd.  There’s no more gung-ho, happy, full-time author, but what could be described as a battered man here.  That isn’t far from the truth and I’ll be emotionally limping along for a while.  Getting too close to speaking, so I’m just going to say that this was a bad week for me.  It isn’t looking like I’m going to be having a really good week in a long time.

Well, there is one issue I can talk about even though it could be gross.  Seems I’m developing an allergy that gets set off when I go from cold to hot.  This might even be the reason behind the patches on my legs.  The itching became full-body and I finally got some Benadryl.  One pill and I was fine within 15 minutes.  The drowsiness means I can only use it at night after my son is put to bed and I have nothing else to do.  How ridiculous is it that this isn’t the worst event or news of my week?

Goals of the week?

  1. See Lego Movie 2 with son.
  2. Buy Lego set and build it with son.
  3. Make homemade quesadillas.
  4. Play a little Lego Star Wars 2.
  5. Extra reading time.
  6. Get more volunteers for War of Nytefall: Rivalry.
  7. Maybe write a little War of Nytefall: Eradication.
  8. If son is more interested in playing with his toys, I’ll work on guest posts.

    Like John said, I hope this is a better week, in spite of last week’s downturn.
    Hope you enjoy the Lego Movie. I want to see it soon too.


  3. I commend you in hanging on to the good things. Even if life sucks, you still do things with your son. That’s not just good for him, it helps you too.


  4. Take care of yourself, Charles.
