The Weekend, a recap of errors.
Alright. Please forgive the glaring mistakes in the previous post. I should know better than to post many hours after my bedtime. (And they were the mistakes that Firefox didn’t catch because they weren’t spelling.. just word and sentence mistakes)
This past weekend was.. interesting to say the least.
Friday I get off of work. I’ve got the house to myself.
I change into more hot weather friendly clothes (alright, alright. I admit it, it was my jammies).
I make myself some lunch.
I put McLeod’s Daughters in the dvd player.(love that show)
I sit down and open up my novella, every intention of working on it.
I get a phone call from Mother of Mine.
The car she was travelling in to go up to Denver decided to stop working. Joy.
I put real clothes back on.
I get in the car.
I drive 25 miles up to Monument and pick up Mother of Mine and friend plus teenager.
I drive to Denver, okay it was Littleton, but it was the far north end of littleton, which is also known as BFE and is practically driving to Denver.
I drop Mother of Mine and crew off at the festival. Say hello to a few people whom I do not honestly recall.
I get back in car.
I drive back home, sweating and dripping the entire time as it was bloody hot. And dude.. I even had the AC running.
By the time I reach Academy, the AC is off and I’m screaming along with Amanda F^cking Palmer. Yes, I got a few weird looks from the cars around me, but frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn- I had just driven over 150 miles round trip and I needed something to distract me from my screaming back.
I change back into my jammies.
I start McLeod’s Daughters back up.
I start writing.
The storm finally hits, which was nice. Nothing like a torrential downpour to make the afternoon more enjoyable.
I had homemade Lasagna for dinner.
I stay up late.
I write a lot.
I go to bed.
Putter around the kitchen doing breakfasty type stuff.
Hear a noise from my mothers bedroom.
Pause in confusion as the cat is next to me, and Mother of Mine is supposed to be still in Denver.
Walk into her room, see her home. – odd.
She’s slightly awake. I ask her why she’s home.
Apparently the individuals she had been riding with (and I rescued) was unwilling to drive her to the place she was going to spend the night, so she just came home with them.
Great. My plans now are drastically altered.
Pan, aka the Little S^ht decided to be a little bastard. I won’t go into details. But lets just say… there was a screaming Big Cat (me) and Pan was avoiding me the rest of the day.
I let Mother of Mine borrow my car so that 1)She could go back to the festival, and 2)I’d have the house to myself and could continue as originally planned. Considering my mood, that had been the best for both of us.
I get a lot of writing done.
I post stuff for sale in my shop.
I stay up late.
I write a blog that has many mistakes in it. lol
I go to bed.
I finished with over 4000 words written. And I’m to the spot where exciting things are starting to happen. (I finished with “defining the world”, now I get to play.)
I am happy with the writing thus far, and I am getting good reviews of it. (Thanks Jo!)
If I can continue with at least a minimum of 2,000 words a week, I’ll get done in 10 weeks, which is mid September. Which will then give me about a month and a half to do any editing and reworking and getting the query letter/synopsis done. Meep. Those last two items scare me. Hopefully I’ll finish with more than 2000 each week. That’d be nice. I believe Mother of Mine will be out of town again this weekend.. I do wish to go to the festival 1 day, as it will be my last chance to go.
Sunday was spent with no writing done. Mother of Mine was home, and it just doesn’t work very well. Every time I opened up my file to start working on it, something else would require my attention.
On the Needles:
Fangtasm is still my main project right now. I’m almost done with sock#1. I’m about half an inch away from doing the cuff. Woohoo. Look at me go.
On the TV:
McLeod’s Daughters season 1- mom introduced me to the show, and I’ve seen most of season 4 (due to it being on while I was at home) and so its amusing watching the earlier seasons when I know whats coming in season 4.
The International – Watched this as I was waking up on Sunday. That was a mistake. I for the life of me.. cannot tell you what happened.
Lovejoy season 1- an enjoyable show.
Monk season 1- wow. I had no idea that some of the episodes I caught on the telly randomly were from season 1.
Army Wives season 2, disc 2- badness is afoot.
Chuck season 1- Oh my gods, I absolutely fell for this show. And once again.. it’s one that’s been cancelled. Sigh. All the good ones get the axe. And I’m starting to think that poor Adam Baldwin is cursed when it comes to funny witty shows.
Burn Notice season 2, disc 2- I very much feel that Burn Notice is the new MacGyver. Yup Pass it along. It’s great. And it’s amusing, I caught part of an episode on tv the other day, and it happened to be an episode from season 2 disc 2. It amused me.
Lets see.. what else have I been watching?.. I think thats it for now.
Hunter’s Moon by Lori Handeland – werewolf hunter fluff. But it’s alright. I need fluff right now. I was going to reread Dead Witch Walking, but I decided that I need to focus more on my writing than using some of my precious time for reading.
I plan on putting in an order for more yarn very shortly. Just waiting on finding out if the extra money in this weeks paycheck was a mistake or what it was…
Go buy my yarn! That means I can buy more yarn and then make lots of pretty new colors!
