19 December 2019 Indecisiveness

I will, given the chance, find a way to waste time at night.  Be it social media or whatnot.  If I’m actually reading a book and not news-stories, that would be considered productive.  Tonight, I spent time trying to figure out which audiobooks to get as I had 2 credits.  I spent over an hour and in the end picked out the latest John Le Carré’s novel and the George Smiley radio dramas, also by Le Carré.  I will let the credits build up again until March when the new Department Q book is released.
The last Department Q novel I listened to sounded like it would be the last.  It didn’t come up to the main conflict until it was 3 hours in.  Then the book focused on Rose and her issues.  Several books back, it was revealed that she had some sort of multiple personality complex.
But still I just took a long time to decide on which books to get.  Which is why I need to find a significant other who will make decisions for me when I get too indecisive.  Someone who would grab my phone and make a decision on what I listen to next based off of my browsing history.
Tonight I watched the Mandalorian, which I thoroughly enjoyed.  I have about a dozen or so books that I need to read (not listening like I normally do for books over 200 pages long) and a few shows to watch to get caught up on.
I started to exercise last night.  Doing 99 crunches and 33 modified pushups.  I also meditated for 3 minutes.  For some reason I cannot do something consistently like exercising, writing, ect. ect.  The onlything I have been able to do is walk and listen to books each night.
So, I will work on focus.  I will sit down and decide what I will read next.  I will work on my exercising.  I will work on my focus and I will work on getting this project done, now that I’m in the editing and rewrite stage.  Then I will see if someone from my writing group has a recording studio and then narrate the finished project.  Well, it’s a thought anyway.  I’m not sure if I want to narrate my book.  It may be a good exercise in the process.  But I’m getting ahead of myself.
Next year, I will work on having friends who want to hang out with me.  Next year I will work on finishing projects.  I apologize for all the repetitiveness of this post.  Repetitive though just kind of seeps out sometimes.

I just downloaded The Author Blog by Anne R Allen.  So, it may be possible that my blog will change over the next year.  It will change the sooner it will be for my book to be published.  We’ll see.  We’ll see what happens next.

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…
