Checking in and stuff

I'm abandoning the overly methodical check-in title. I just don't feel like keeping track of whether this is check-in 4 or 6 as it's really not important. What's important? Getting words into my book, which I've done a little better at... okay quite a lot better at for this check-in.

I feel like there should be a drum roll or something...

No?

Alright, I'll just spit it out...

I wrote...

1,025 words since Wednesday. It's no NaNoWriMo figure, but I also cleaned my house as it was in dire straights. I caught up on the Coursera course I'm taking. At work I started managing a new project, which is always a time filled with a lot of writing and reading. I did a bunch of laundry and actually put the clean clothes away right away instead of leaving them in the basket. I cleaned mountains of dishes.

I'm about to get a load of clean clothes out of the dryer and do another load of dishes.

I took Thursday off and went to a museum outing with Steampunk Ottawa.

I even baked muffins somewhere in there. I feel like a superhero this weekend.

There's still lots on my to-do list and I'm starting an email course on becoming a morning person (I want to have more writing time), and sewing classes start on Saturday.

Living life and getting words into my book is good stuff.

17,319 more to go *I think*. I say I think because if I total up the chapter counts in Excel, I have 54,228 words total, yet Scrivener tells me I actually have 54,624 words. It's probably somewhere in between. Scrivener is counting things like title pages, the copyright, and the dedication. It's also counting words on pages it generates to format it as a proper manuscript.

Anyway, there's my update for this check-in.

Ciao,
R~

  1. Ya...I'm already tired of keeping track of the check-in number. I hear you. Sounds like you're moving along with your writing and making strides with "life" too! Good luck!! :)

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an

Catching My Breath - 2020 ROW80 R3-C6

 I've tried writing this post numerous times, but I needed a break. A long one. I've been mega stressed out and depressed, so I have been taking a little breather. I was feeling broken, but the experience has forced me to slow down and relax. I've gotten some help including medication for it and I am feeling much better. I'm feeling like myself more with each passing day. I'm sleeping better and have energy again.  I have been reducing my social media time. Especially Facebook. Actually, I enjoy Instagram much more. FITNESS I've been scooting and I'm getting back into skating. It's often hard to get out because of rain. Eventually, I want to do tricks on my skates. This skater may not be in derby anymore, but she's still a skater ;) I have a ton of plans for cross training once winter is here. I'll be hitting up outdoor rinks if they are available, but I'm also going to work on off skate skills that will help me get to doing tricks later on.
