I didn’t get what I wanted to get done this weekend.  I had a terrible headache yesterday and it just got worse and worse.  Had it happened during the work week, I would have gone home early and made the hours up later, or taken PTO depending on the day of the week.
So, I’m thinking maybe I should get my eyes checked, it had been a couple of years since the last check up.  But then my eyesight doesn’t change all that much.  Who knows, it might be good to check.
Today I only had dull headaches, which I’m okay with.

Today, while at a birthday party, I just realized that I should write a scene that involves headaches.  They happen to Milo de Ford as he makes the transition from being regular to having a special gift.  I can write a scene where he has a shift of vision and then all the other side effects happen.
This weekend, I realized what I wanted for the villan at the end of the series and the story of Edgar Townsend a.k.a the hound, have very similar stories.  They are both killed and then brought back to life.  So I was thinking, I can make Edgar in Milo’s world the villan of the series.  And in the battle between the parallel worlds, the Edgar that was brought back to life by the Dark Prince is now the key to defeating the Edgar in Milo’s world.  Just some thoughts.

I thought of adding a scene with Edgar Townsend from Milo’s world.  Then expanding on the argument that Milo has with Glum.  So extra scenes showing Milo’s transformation and an expansion of the Glum argument will help ground the reader better and help with the single focus idea.  The Edgar in this story doesn’t need to do much, he just shows up and says I’m here.

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…
