This May Be Shorter than Usual

Warning:  The video above has a lot of cursing and a few strobes effects.  Still, I find it funny and the radio keeps playing the safe version.  Besides .



This week was bad.

You know, I keep saying things are rough and I have expectations for the following week, but . . . this was bad.  Worst part is that the future doesn’t look to be any easier.  Anxiety will be running high and anything short of an elephant tranquilizer won’t solve that problem.  Can’t talk about it in public either, so you get vagueness on the blog.  I can’t even think of anything else to talk about here.

The blurb for War of Nytefall: Savagery will be up tomorrow for a test.  Not sure how it came out.  I might do a final editing run at nights since I’m just doing it to see if everything feels right.  That’s all for that.  Absolutely no luck finding an artist for cover and interior art for Do I Need to Use a Dragon? (Fantasy Writing Tips) either.  Don’t even know where to look anymore.

I’m watching ‘Record of Lodoss War’ because I’ve seen it before and my heart isn’t really into anything else.  Might watch the final Rurouni Kenshin movie tonight or tomorrow if I can muster the desire.  It could be best to wait until next week though.

Can’t do any outlining at work right now because of what’s going on.  Breaks are minimal or I’m too out of it to attempt things.  I could push a little harder on the ‘Brian Hunter’ stuff to get it done.  Maybe I should do that instead of trying to edit my next release while I’m stressed so much.  I might just try to finish the April blog posts and start in on May if I have any topics.  Feel free to suggest any subjects that I can touch on for May.  Think I’m stretching my topics a lot.  Any topic that I can revisit?

Yup . . . That’s really it.  Life took an unexpected and rough turn in many areas.  This could have easily been the worst week of my life if not for the one where I learned I was getting divorced.  On the plus side, I get a haircut today, which I desperately need.  That’s pretty much it.

Goals of the week:

  1. Survive

  1. Bia Bella Baker💗Proud author of: HECCTROSSIPY book 1 The Legend of the Land says:

    Suggested blog topics
    1. Write about your knowledge on autism.
    2. What was a book or movie with the most brilliant/or The most laughably stupid storyline?
    3. What was the most plot holed book you’d ever read?
    4. What is an invention that you love, and can’t imagine your life without?/Or an invention you hate, and wish would go away?

    I hope these topic suggestions get your brain twirling with new blog post ideas. For as long as I’ve been following this blog, I swear, this has to be just about the 10th time you asked for new blog post topics.


    • Thanks. I’m actually really hesitant to make posts about specific books or movies. Those tend to draw a lot of heated comments especially if I criticize. I have done autism posts before, so I can think up something there. Not sure if I’m knowledgeable since I only speak from my own experience.

      I ask for post topics a lot because I’ve done so many. Feel like the well is getting pretty dry.

  2. I have always wondered if you have a puzzle strategy when you are putting them together. Maybe it is a dumb topic, but it would be interesting if you have some secret. I think by wishing you a better week there is some jinx running around. I guess at some point a better week will show up.


  3. I am so sorry about what you’re going through. So very sorry, Charles. I hope the days ahead will be better.


  4. Reminds me, I need a haircut, too. Hope things turn around for you.


  5. I remember ordering Lodoss War on VHS as the episodes were released! Ah, good times. The one line that sticks with me is when Ghim the dwarf is asked why he trusts an elf in an emergency. “Only a human would let someone’s race get in the way about their abilities.”

    Hope things settle down for you at work.


    • That was a good line. I’m into the Heroic Knight series that came after the OVAs. It’s weird and definitely shows it’s age.

      Work is going to be unstable for a while. I’m almost glad that I have no big writing projects that would suffer.


  6. I don’t know what to say except to tell you to hang in there. Good luck surviving this week, and however long it takes for things to be dealt with or got under control, or whatever needs to happen to at least make you feel like you can start setting goals beyond surviving again.
