Cloudy and warm
NaNoWriMo Daily Cheer: Take a walk, play with the cat, read a book. Don’t let “focus” on your work be confused with “obsession”. A little bit of breathing space will help your work.
I have a horrible migraine today. Unfortunately, I still have to go into the city for day work. I can barely keep my head up. And none of the prescription medications do a damn thing to even take off the edge, so I don’t bother. Once I can eat something, I’ll take some Excedrin Migraine and that will dull it enough to make me fictional -- um, I mean functional. I hate to think I even have a Freudian slip, but that's sized extra large with a great big tear in it!
Yeah, an afternoon in fluorescent lighting. That’ll help.
Didn’t get much more done on Charlotte yesterday. I have to do two issues per day for the next three days and finish the fight scene. And I’m so far behind on Widow’s Chamber that I’m in despair.
Worked on some temporary author pages last night for a shared author site. I’m looking at them as “page holders” until I’m more adept at the skills Colin’s teaching me and then I’ll rebuild them from scratch. The information’s there and looks neat and clean enough so, as I send out pitches, et al, potential employers can link and look, and anything that has to do with the Devon Ellington work goes to my website, so it’ll be fine. For now.
I can’t wait to hit the bookstore on my way back from work and pick up the travel books. I need some armchair adventure over the next few days.
A good friend of mine started a blog as she’s making the transition into a writing career, too. She is an intelligent, talented, terrific person who makes the world a better place by her presence, and as soon as she gives me permission, I’ll post the link.
Gotta force myself to function and concentrate on Charlotte. I have to catch a train soon.
I’d rather go back to bed.
