Writing-wise, the title sums it all up. I’ve been thinking about writing, and avoiding it. Frankly, I was just too tired – I had a week where I was getting no more than 5 hours of sleep a night and by the time I got a space in the day to write, I just couldn’t face it. I’ve been hiding from the world in WoW instead, and for some reason, now that I’ve hit level 78, I feel like I can stop playing semi-obsessively (can’t call it obsessively, I just don’t have enough hours in the day to play to that level!).
And we’ve had two nights of more sleep, so I feel like maybe it’s time to start tapping back into my novella. Maybe I can save this thing, maybe I can get out 20k words this month after all (ha! I feel like I’m kidding myself here, but you never know unless you try, right?).
Things are looking up in general. I was told not to worry because all my needs would be met, and it seems to be slowly coming true: the bank has approved a loan so that we can buy a people mover, we’ve possibly found one for a really good price in Rotorua which we could pick up when we go over there next week. A friend is going to house-sit while we’re gone which means that maybe, for once, I can relax and have a good time knowing that my canine-baby is safe and secure in her own home (not that she isn’t safe other places, but she is very much happiest at home). I finally got some new bras (lol sorry if you don’t want to know, but hell, its exciting!) some sexy HotMilk ones – I decided to splurge (something I very rarely do – and I don’t feel guilty, which is even cooler!) because I’ve been in maternity bras for over a year now and am going to be for another two most likely, so why not have something nice to wear? All women know that you feel much better about yourself with some nice underwear. Also, on Monday morning I felt this baby moving inside me, it gave me a very impressive kick despite the fact that it’s quite small at this stage of the game.
So yes, things are coming together. And maybe with all that other stuff taken care of I can get back to my writing. It’s certainly not on the top of my list at the moment, and I might have to accept that it’s not going to be for another year or so. I’m actually okay about that.
