Update - October 21, 2015

Well I've missed some updates recently. I'm sorry for that, but things have been rather hectic.

Health

I'm in physio for my neck. I think it's helping put the discs back where they should be. I'm hopeful that there will come a day where I will be pain free.

I haven't heard about the other stuff yet.

Writing

I'm feeling a conflict.

The course I'm taking to improve my skills is taking up so much of my time that I'm not getting to work on my actual writing projects. As such, I've decided I won't be going for the certificate. I already have tons of things like that for my wall and don't need more. I'm going to pare down to just what I need to do in the course to improve my skills. I will comment on some of the posts, but 15 per week is too much. I'll continue doing the assignments as they force me to do things I wouldn't naturally do, so I think they're helpful for growth. I also like hearing the feedback from others. I'll continue giving them feedback too. I'll also watch the videos because those are the lessons. The readings I'll do if I have time.

My cover designer is getting closer to having a cover to me. It's looking really good so far. I'm excited!

I need to do my back cover writeup. I think I started it and may just need to tweak it.

I'll post my schedule soon for Can-Con 2015.

I'm planning away for National Novel Writing Month as it's very soon. I'll be working on Scion, which I formerly titled The Truth About Jacob. It's an alien conspiracy and it's currently stuck at around 30,000 words. It's the first novel I tried to write, so finishing it will feel great. They're currently stuck in the woods. I plan on torturing them some because characters love that. Right?

Martial Arts

I'm using my wooden sword for a little while as I need to relax my trapezius muscles.

Grading is coming up and though I've not registered yet, I'm training for it.

I'm speaking on a panel with three other people at Can-Con about weapons. I'm looking forward to this, but I'm also hoping I don't get too many questions that I can't answer.

Life

My tattoo has been finished. It's just starting the itchy stage. I WANT TO SCRATCH IT SO BAD!!! I know I can't though. I can slap it and put more lotion on it.

My Halloween costume is getting close to being finished.

Things are going well with the boyfriend :)

I feel like I'm always cleaning my place and never getting done. I suppose that's usual. It's Back to the Future Day! We need clothes that clean themselves. Dishes too. I'm tired of that crap.

Well, off to do laundry.

Ciao,

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

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Funky Friday - Losses, threats, and violence

[caption id="attachment_4712" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption] I completed the second draft of my story, so I'm writing a quick post of the most prominent stories from this week. Sad - An RCMP officer in Ottawa took his own life. Happy - Jared from the Subway commercials got beaten in prison . I have zero sympathy for sexual predators. Sometimes I think I should feel bad about this, but children are one of our most precious resources and adults like him disgust me. Excited - Anonymous has declared war on Donald Trump! Hopeful - I'm starting a new treatment soon to better manage my pain. Unsettled - Given that I just finished writing a story that features an unknown pathogen... This outbreak in Wisconsin is freaking me out just a tiny bit. Well, that's all I have the mental capacity for tonight. Ciao, R~
