I’m a bit tired and had this headache even after taking ibuprofen.  I was doing really good, I mean I went one whole day with out taking ibuprofen or Tylenol.

Spent New Year’s Eve alone.  I didn’t get an invitation to the party a cousin of mine throws and so I felt left out.  The cousin I live with came back to check on the dog and asked me if I wanted to join the party and I said no.  I was still upset at being left out.  But that is that, now is the time focus on the future.  Or the part of the future I can control.

I started reading Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire.  I really enjoy the story.  It’s about a school for children who have traveled to other worlds and now can’t go back.

I started a new project.  This is a story about Milo de Ford and Glum.  It’s an origin story for the Marquis de Avery a.k.a. Milo de Ford who travels to different worlds.  My goal is to finish the rough draft of a 36,000 word story by the end of the month.  I’ve repurposed a character from long ago, like at least five years ago: Kurt Grey, the Finder.  Only this time I’m ignoring his backstory and making him a villan.  He hunts down other people with special abilities.  I may or may not give out progress updates.
I gave Glum a power, she too is a finder.  Although for her to access her power, she needs to meditate for a count of a hundred breaths, something I haven’t done in a decade, and then she can access her gift.
I’m not sure if Glum will have her own stand alone story or if she develops her powers in a story with the villan of the series.  The villan of the series is a very liberal minority guy who is killed by a right wing hate group.  But as he dies, the convergis happens and he inherits the power of the phoenix.  Reborn with new powers, the anger and hate that he felt done to him through the execution by the right wing hate group, he initiates an ending of the worlds.  It is up to Milo and Glum and their band of super hero friends to stop him.  Or that is what the idea is for the series.

Tonight’s task is to write tomorrow’s poem.  Tomorrow, I plan to spend six hours writing.  I have to remind myself that I need to write three poems longer than seventeen syllables within the next week.

I plan to go to the gym and do light running.  I have been constantly hungry.  I read somewhere with diabetes and other blood sugar related issues, that the body isn’t breaking down the sugars properly.  So in order to feel less hungry, one needs to exercise and drink lots of water.  Exercise stimulates metabolism which helps break down the sugars and the feeling of hunger goes away.  Well, it’s a thought.

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…
