Beginning of Spring Break . . . Not Off to a Good Start

Well . . . Spring Break is here.  I’m alive, but yesterday totally unraveled within the span of 10 minutes.  Plans are shattered.  A rough situation has emerged, but I’ve been sidelined due to the circumstances.  I’ve told a few people in private since I really can’t make this public.  No, I don’t have Covid.  That’s the only thing I can say.

Today is the first day of Passover, so family is coming over.  Last year we couldn’t do anything, so this is an upgrade.  There’s still a bittersweet taste though because of the above situation.  Going to be very hard to socialize when I just want to stay in my room and edit.  I’ve got two projects right now:

  • Finish editing War of Nytefall: Savagery, which is looking more like a late April or early May release.  Sorry about that, but this is why I tend to be vague and flexible on release dates.
  • Go through the beta reader notes for Do I Need to Use a Dragon? (Fantasy Writing Tips).  Thank you for your help.  I actually forgot how big this book got, so this might be a weekend project.

Nothing else happened this week.  I did learn last weekend that I can’t drink beer without getting violently ill.  This isn’t a bad thing.  I never truly enjoyed it, so now I have a better and more solid reason for avoiding it.  Watched ‘Snyder’s Justice League’, which was really good.  I started watching an anime called ‘Bofuri’, which isn’t too bad.  Cute and short, but it helps when I’m don’t have much time or energy.  Think I’ll start watching ‘Doom Patrol’ this weekend.

Okay.  I think I’m out.  I’m desperately trying to be interesting here, but I’m really on the verge of tears.  This is being written on Friday within 2 hours of the disaster that I can’t talk about.  I’m going out to a party with coworkers who I’ve told and asked to make sure I don’t have more than 2-3 drinks.  My mind is in a bad spot because it feels like the universe gave me a massive kick to the groin then followed it up with an eye gouge.  Then I landed face first in a pile of sliced onions.  Seriously, I’m miserable and I don’t know what to do.  My luck has been nightmarishly bad for a few years.  It almost feels like a joke since injury is the one thing that doesn’t happen, so I’m always capable of walking into the next stumbling block.  Today is family and I’ll do my best.  My anxiety may get the best of me at times.  Tomorrow may be TV, wine, and editing.  Passover means no pizza as comfort, but I might break that at some point if I’m left unsupervised.

Hope everyone has a fun week.  I’m not doing any goals since I already said the two things I’m planning.  Everything else has been shattered or delayed.  Think I have some funny memes tomorrow.  Later.
