23 February 2020 Recap

Quick recap of today.  I spoke with my friend, he looked at my website and gave me some solid advice.  Advice that I plan on following.  We’ll talk again and work on my website some more in a few months time.  Hopefully by that time, I will have self published a book with another in tow.
The biggest thing that will help me sell books is by having more material out there.  Then write blog posts that are like the essays I wrote in college with references, ie links to other articles to give my blog posts authority.  Categories in blogs are like hashtags, utilize them.   Do key word searches to figure out what people are looking for when they are looking up certain genres of writing.
So it’s a little list to work on.  I like those, helps me determine what to do next.
Finish the rough draft of this novel.  Look for a graphic artist.  Figure out the process of editing.  Work on second novel of series.  Compile essay topic list and write blog posts to coincide with what I have written.

Didn’t get much exercise done last week.  This week, I will work on running five miles a day.  Also, I’ll switch up my schedule so that I can write for longer periods on Thursday and Friday.  Goal: get as close to finishing the rough draft as possible.  Finish reading the current book I’m reading now.  This is going to be the week I change everything.

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…
