Goal Post: Charity Poetry Book (Get a Copy!) and a Crazy Week

First, I submitted 3 poems to the above charity project.  This prose and poetry collection will gather and send money to charities for Ukraine.  Please consider buying even the $3.99 ebook to help.  CLICK HERE!

As for the week, it was really busy as usual.  Didn’t help that my allergies were giving me issues.  So, I was suffering from either a headache or cough until near the end of the week.  By then, I was plain exhausted and struggling to stay awake.  It’s that time of year, so I shouldn’t have expected anything else.  Plus side is that I didn’t really have much hope for progress on projects.  May just isn’t that type of month.

That isn’t to say I got nothing done.  The outline for Darwin & the Avenging Elf is complete, which means I can start writing Darwin & the Halfling Hunt when I get a chance.  Might be Monday night if I feel up to it.  Next weekend is more likely after I watch my son’s Lego Robotics competition.  This book would normally require 22 days with 3 sections each, so I’m looking more at 30.  The following book is 20, so finishing both before the next school year might not be possible.  Guess starting this week gives me a better shot.  The reason for this is because I’m expecting next year to be so crazy that I can’t do any writing like this year.

I’m going to try to finish the rest of the October monster posts before my son comes home today.  These are fun since I have to do research, but that does slow things down.  I’m trying to figure out if I can put a non-image PDF file on my blog too.  This way, I can make PDFs of each ‘Raven’ story and post them one at a time on Tuesdays in October.  It’s either that or try to make a post with a link to each of the 30-31 other posts, which isn’t going to get any traction.  Every time I look stuff up, I see it’s about an image, so I can’t figure out if it’s possible with a short story/novella.

The rest of the week was spent working and helping my son with his assignments.  Got a few to do this weekend, but they’re not too rough.  He has his concert next week, so I’m gearing up for that.  As I said, Lego Robotics competition too, so May is going to be ending with a really crazy full week.  Feel like I keep filling out permission slips too.  Guess everyone plans on ending the year with a bang.  I’m just looking forward to things slowing down a little bit.

Finished a puzzle, so expect a post about that hobby tomorrow.  I focused a bit more on that than usual because I want to get to this Lego Globe that I bought a while back.  After that, I got a Lego Nintendo with TV, controller, and Super Mario cartridge that I’ve wanted for a while.  Got further in a video game when I had a few minutes to spare.  I really only had time to squeeze stuff in around the end of the day.

The non-writing hobbies took more time, but part of that may also have been that I was watching the newest season of ‘Demon Slayer’.  I didn’t want to be distracted, so I was using it to rest up.  Actually, I finished that on Sunday after I did the outline.  I started ‘Outlaw Star’ again, but there were several nights where I just crawled into bed and watched YouTube videos until I passed out.  So, everything was dropped to a slower pace because . . . oh yeah . . . Drama that I can’t talk about here, which led to my IBS going off midweek.  Almost forgot about that.

Well, that’s all I can think of right now.  I want to get to the monster posts and laundry, so my mind isn’t very focused.  Maybe it’s the possibility that I’ll have most of the year scheduled on here, which makes writing books so much easier.  Trying to get myself to believe that the school year months were successful in that I made things smoother for the summer.  I won’t have to do any more posts beyond the weekend stuff until September at this rate.  Gives me time to think up more topics.  You know I’m running out of ideas when I post about magical parasites.

  1. Start writing Slumberlord Chronicles: Darwin & the Halfling Hunt
