So today I have originated

1. A Killjoys fix-it novella that will undoubtedly get ALL the serial numbers filed off except for a few small in-joke type references

2. A Canterbury Tales style novel of very vague nature.

3. Since I realized that would take out the challenge-answering aspect of it, a martial arts showcasing kung fu epic novel with a fat lead

It's been an inspiring day!

It turns out I hated the ending of this one episode of Killjoys so much (characters died. it was awful) that I decided to file serial numbers off and write an everyone lives ending.

It's going to be a novella now.

HALLELUJAH MY THYROID IS BEHAVING NORMALLY. I feel like I can resume all my normal activities again.

For the record, and I don't know how many of y'all know I'm in North Carolina, but yes, I am safe, I'm on the inland side of the state and in the mountains which help break up the storms, and I'm many hundreds of meters up from the nearest likely flooding (the river). I'm okay and likely to remain so.

In a fantasy world where there are various species of bird shifters, I need to have a conversation where one bird shifter calls another "you absolute tit" and the other gets offended "Excuse you I am a GULL" and over in the corner "AND WHAT'S WRONG WITH A TIT."

Day four? I think, of bullet journaling and so far not bad, although not much different from keeping a to-do list on Habitica. But not bad. Plus I can doodle a little thought bubble with "Zzzz" in it next to today's list because I managed to hit a carb coma. That was not smart of me.

I also migrated a task because I wrote down to highlight a synopsis and completely forgot I DON'T HAVE MY HIGHLIGHTERS. Argh. But I did put in that order for school supplies, so eventually I will have them back.

Me: Hey, okay, look, brain, look at all of these titles and headers and things, we could do literally any of these for nanowrimo this year!
Brain: Yes, but, and just hear me out here... what if... sleep instead?
Me: Traitor.

Pokemon Go (no, seriously) Show more

I am really getting into laying out my bullet journal so, here's hoping I use it?

(Also I do not need to spend my small amount of leftover con money on highlighters and washi tape dammit.)

Okay, in a semi-technical sense I do because I need to replace the highlighters that walked off in my con bag, but not right this red hot minute.

The problem with trying to find an online course on opera is that they all want you to learn the programming language and not the performance art.

Still, EdX has a range of archived courses I can look at! Which is good because I do actually have an account there. TALLY-HO. TO THE LEARNINGS.

Having this weird impulse to research something, anything, I must take notes on things, but I don't have a current project to take notes ON. Grrrr.

(Maybe opera. Maybe I should find an online course on opera.)

It's never too early to start planning for your Nanowrimo novel. so I'm trying to think what the possibilities are.

I came up with two novels. TWO.

I am very tired.

I was a very, very goth teenager. Not so much in clothing style but in reading and talking and thoughts? Oh yes.

Listening to BuJo layout ideas while I finish up day jobligations and remembering that as a kid I was always the one doodling quotes from The Crow in my notebooks so, um. This is going to be an interesting Bullet Journal.

Not the movie, either, the graphic novel. Things like:

"Round and round we go
The moon goes round the earth
We do not die of death
We die of vertigo"

Also this: t.co/xcEtstJSKY

... seriously though, BuJo really does sound like a small angry demon summoned by a cult to do their dark bidding.

Possibly on a cerulean merino sweater.

Also I'm halfway thinking of trying to start a bullet journal again, this time somewhat more planned. I've only tried it once. Maybe I need to alter my approach.

*still squints with suspicion at bullet journals*

This week's status: *dying quietly in a corner under many blankets with Constantine playing in the background*

Next week: EDIT ALL OF THE LIFESTYLES.

This week, though, taking a break to figure out a tentative schedule, or at least a list of projects to work on over the next year, and doing a lot of reading and sleeping. Stupid post-con drag.

17/44! Not including the background bits that I've written up elsewhere that I haven't yet read back to Editrix so she can approve that I have enough grounding in the silly novel.

*hurls self at final edits shrieking* ANTOOOOOOON CHEKHOOOV!

15 and a half edits addressed, which puts me almost halfway done by the time I leave work? Maybe? Yeah, I can do this. I think. Brain so tired.

Working on an element related to the meta-material of the novel and I found the Editrix note "Don't turn anyone into a Tremere, okay? Diablerie bad."

I love my Editrix.
