30 December 2019 The Future of my Writing

I have made some decisions about the future of my writing.  Things I will implement.  I’m making writing my focus for 2020.
The biggest thing that I’m changing are my Saturdays.  I’m going to dedicate my Saturdays to writing.  Meaning I won’t go to the cigar shop or the craft beer shop.  Last year I was trying to maintain my connections.  These were idle hours and I never got anything done and I would be frustrated because of it.  I was always thinking I could be doing something to improve myself, and now I will.
So the new Saturday line up is go to the gym right away in the morning and then either go back home or go to a coffee shop and write.  The first rule is that I need to be in front of the screen for six hours until I get in the motion of writing and then in time, Saturdays I plan to write for six hours.  Then if I want to go to craft beer shop or the bars connected to it and eat pizza, I can do so without guilt.  Of course I won’t for the first six weeks.
The other decision I have made in the last week is that the theme for January poems will be: fairy tales.  A smaller thing, but a decision none the less.  So those the the first things I have made decisions about.
For Christmas, one fo the gifts I received was an Ansel Adams planning calendar.  I will use that to track my progress.  Like I will record how many pages written and how many miles ran and whatnot.  Hopefully in the middle of the year, it was say eat pizza or eat tacos with so and so on Saturday nights, but then I’m getting ahead of myself.

So my plan is to dedicate Saturdays to my writing and then track my results on my Ansel Adams calendar.

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…
