Song Mood: Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper featuring Rob Hyman.  It seems like I always go back to a pattern.  Or the song is a trigger for me to go back to a certain pattern.

I’m not real sure of how I want to proceed with my life.  I know that I have to go forward.

So, I have been worried about my writing.  Last night I did some web and email searching.  Reedsy has an article that is an awesome reference for editing:  Which will come in handy when I do finish a project, which hopefully will be in a week.
I looked through my kindle library for James Scott Bell books about writing.  The one I went back to reading is Just Write.  The section I’m reading of that book is about what to do with exposition.  For good measure I bought James Scott Bell’s How to Make a Living as a Writer as an extra resource for writing and self publishing.

I’m doing a lot of reading now as a way to move the story forward.  I need to finish writing the rough draft.  Then I should be look for someone to date.  Someone who is broken like me.  Maybe not broken exactly like me.  Broken in her own special way so that she can understand that I am a broken person.  I don’t know if that makes any sense.  Someone who wont think of me as weird if I start crying during movies.  Or if I just start crying because I’m tired.  Or if I just start crying for no reason whatsoever.

So reading books on writing is what I’m doing now.  Next step, do some writing.  I should also make myself copy a paragraph from my favorite writers so I get a feel as how to write descriptions that move the story forward.  And then get myself into a position where I can handle the lemons life throws at me.

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…
