Song mood: In a Little While by U2.
Super mondo tired at the moment. Got woken up a couple of times last night. No sense complaining.
I should be working on my mystery, but I’m tired.
I’ve been reading Night at the Crossroads by Georges Simenon. A Maigret novel. Something to get me in the mood of writing a mystery.
I just lose heart. Deep down, or deep inside, I want to write. But I’ve lost heart and don’t.
I meet with my bestie for tea on Saturdays. I have agreed to have six pages to hand in. Which, is why I should be writing. If I do 250 words a day, or one page, then I wouldn’t need to spend as much time each day writing. I’m pretty sure on Friday, I will write for an hour and a half and have the 1500 words done. Really, though. I will write one page tomorrow. Maybe two pages on Thursday and spend forty five minutes writing the rest on Friday. I don’t know.
I’m currently listening to Jane Austin at Home: A Biography by Lucy Worsley. It’s a fantastic read. I am enjoying it immensely. It gives the reader a good picture of the Georgian era. The era that followed was the Victorian era. The book focuses on Jane Austin’s home life. Which to my surprise is fascinating. Well, it’s a history book, so not that surprising.
Yesterday was cold. The high was 26F (-3C). I didn’t walk. I didn’t do any exercise. When it gets cold, I just kind of give up on exercise. Today was 42F (5C). I did a modified loop at the lake. I have to figure out what my exercise routine will be, I still want to lose 30lb (13.6kg).
Anyway. Tonight, I will read some more in the novel that I’m reading. Tomorrow, my goal is to write one page of story. Also for tomorrow, I think I will need to work on breathing exercises to help reduce the anxiety that I’m feeling. I’m stressed out about a few things, but breathing exercises should reduce the amount of stress that I feel. So yep, days are shorter and it’s cold. Not my favorite time of the year.
