17 December 2019 Trying to Focus on What's Good


So this is like the fourth time I tried writing this one blog.  So I will tell myself not write about Facebook, how the republicans have hatred in their hearts.  Because this blog really should not be about personal issues.  However, the above mentioned can paralize me from writing.  So I will get past being hated by all people republican and just write a few things.
I went through the rough draft of my novel and saved around 8500 words.  Once I finish I will probably work on my Marquis de Avery (aka Milo de Ford) story next.  I want to write a sequel to the novella that I wrote that I just cut two thirds of the scenes but something that follows the cut scenes because that is a cooler story still.  So I may write a novella that connects them, which is about the wood-witch.  Or I may just rename the characters or I may explain that it is an alternate world.
I need to do things so that I am not looking at social media as much, so that I can get to the business of writing.  Because I will need to make money writing.  They only way to do that is to produce stuff.  I need to watch more Father Brown shows.  I need to exercise and I need to work on my French.  I need to do stuff so that I don’t think of how the person I want to be with doesn’t want to be around me.  And then focus on the person who is on my side.  And then on how I can give back what has been given to me.

Moleskine

I am in the habit of buying Moleskine journals.  I think they are great.  However, I'm more of a typer than a writer.  And if I ever wrote in my Moleskines as much as I journaled on my computer and for my blogs, I would fill volumes.

Song Mood: Funky Town by Lipps Inc.  As a strange thing happened as I was walking around Wally-world for no reason.  That song had been playing on the radio.  One of the workers of the store was singing the song, after it had played and then I sang it while I was looking for stuff.  Other shoppers were singing it after I passed them.  It was like a chain Funky Town performance in a store.
I am super tired as I am always during this time of the year tired.  Today, I felt a lot of pain in my back and sides, kind of like where my gallbladder used to be.  I stopped eating fried foods a little over a week ago.  Who knows.
I know I’m sounding like a broken record, but something needs to change.  Tomorrow needs to be a new day.
I went to the writer’s group tonight, not that many since the facilitator wasn’t there.
Tomorrow will be a day for taxes.  Then I will attempt to do some writing.  I came up with an idea for the project I’m working on.  Glum triggers Milo’s gift and in the process, M…

It’s been a long day.  I woke up at 4:30am, hungry.
I went to Walmart to do the weekly grocery shopping.  I went to the lake.  I didn’t go out really.  Tomorrow will much of the same.
I didn’t get much of anything done, except for getting groceries and exercise.
I did watch The Pale Horse, a movie on Prime based off of Agatha Christie’s novel by the same name.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I haven’t read the novel and at this time I’m not sure I would have time, or it would be down the list by a lot.  I was most impressed with the wife in this little mini series that was the length of a movie.  The way she knifed a pillow, just gave me the chills.  And I thought that if I ever married Agatha Christie, I would sleep with one eye open.  She plotted out thousands of deaths within the hundreds of books she published.  I have a feeling that if I were married to her, she would have me on a leash and I would be happy because I would actually learn how to write mysteries.  Rufus Sewell has to b…
