I am excited to say that I will (hopefully) have 400 followers on here by the end of the weekend! I am at 398 followers right now. I am so geeked! Thank you everyone for following me! It’s pretty amazing to think that all of you from all over the world check in and read the blog everyday!
I have to admit that I have been bad the past few days. I have had time to do my writing but I have not done it. I have instead lost myself in a mystery. It is a good book to be sure, just not what I am supposed to be doing. I honestly needed a break from the stress of the beginning of the week. So today I will buckle down and get things written. Specifically two book reviews. The one is pretty much completed and just needs a touch up. The second needs to be started atleast. I also need to start reading one of the other review books I have. It is a digital copy so that makes it both harder and easier. Harder because of battery life (if I use my phone) and being able to read in the sun (the electronics tends to get really warm if in the sun for too long). It is easier because I have a smaller package to carry with me to read from. I have one of the first Kindle Fires they made so I have problems getting it to download some of the newer books. Sometimes. The flip side is I have a Kindle app on my phone so I can use my phone if I can’t get the Kindle to access it.
I am trying to keep track of all my writing projects. I am thinking of getting a big calendar. But I have no idea where I would put it. I got another shelving unit for my multitude of books. It’s not very big but it is sturdy and it was free. I just need to figure out a place to put it. Truthfully I am looking down the hall here and if I get rid of or stow some of the stuff on the floor I think it might fit nicely there. It means going through the stack of magazines from Mom. I always feel guilty with those. She will go to the trouble and spend money to get them for me. But some of them I will never use (most of them are cooking magazines with regional recipes like Italy and France because I enjoy their cuisine and I like to cook). I feel guilty getting rid of them. I can give them to a library or to someone else but I still feel bad.
I have done some cleaning of my living room “desk” that I use to do this. I tend to accumulate books and notebooks (as well as various scraps of paper with notes and idea jotted on them). I thinned out the books I have on the table as well as what I have in my moveable stack. As a result it feels much easier to work here. I’m not worried about bumping my coffee of making room for the mouse (I have a cordless one for the laptop).
The kids are still asleep. I feel I should take advantage of this and get some of the writing done. I hope everyone has a great day! And thanks again for following!
