Rainy and hot

I’m better, finally. The acupuncture helped, a lot, although this practitioner used many more needles than my regular one does. But it got rid of the migraine, untwisted a lot of the knots, and I’m feeling better, both mentally and physically.

Of course, the workmen came to my mother’s apartment when management knew I’d be at work. Because they wanted to save $5 on running a cable, she now can’t answer her own door. And they think there won’t be consequences, the damned fools. Plus, the Evil Developer’s number one henchman has moved in to the building (for those of you who’ve read this long enough to remember “The Situation” that tore all our lives apart from November of 2005 to August of 2006). The majority of the residents can cover their ears and sing “la la la” and think “De Nial” is a river in Egypt, but I can see what’s going down. The greed involved in the whole situation is something to behold.

When the Karma Dogs arrive on the doorstep of some of these people involved – I really don’t want to be around. It’s going to get ugly.

In any case, at least I’m feeling well enough to do some planning and calculating, so that we’re not caught up in the same old b.s. as has been going on for the past two years.

You know it’s bad when I go into a bookstore and don’t buy any books!

I’m doing the prep for the articles I’ll be working on this weekend. I’m also going to take some other writing with me, and see if I can work on City of Lost, Good Names, and Tracking Medusa. I especially want to get back to the latter. It feels the best of anything I’ve written in a long time.

I don’t see how I can write 16,000 words in ten days to actually finish Script Frenzy – but, you never know. If I can have a good few days, I can do it. If I can write 50K in 20 days, I should be able to write 16K in 10, right?

Off to the theatre to do two shows today – still on my least favorite track. Oh, well. I said I’d do it to help out – I’m not going to whine about it.

I am going to try to get a little writing done. Tomorrow, I’ll have to put the headphones on. The noise and the dust and the general chaos are still out of control.

  1. Glad you’re feeling better!
    And hope you find a better place to live soon – those horrible Evil Things must be sucking the life out of you.
    Hang in – and thinking of you!

  2. Glad you feel better…but…you actually WENT INTO A BOOKSTORE AND DIDN’T BUY EVEN ONE BOOK???

    Who are you and what have you done with my friend Devon??


  3. Very gald to hear your are feeling better. As soon I read where the Evil Henchman had moved in my brain told me that wouldn’t be good. (I have a very suspicious mind.)
    I hope that you are able to take care of you and your mother when the time comes. Sorry that your mother can no longer answer her door. It’s awful they did that!
    You didn’t buy a book? Nary a one? Whoa!
    I hope your day (and week) improves mightily!

  4. I’m so sorry about the problems you are having with your building. It sounds like a real nightmare. Glad the acupuncture helped your migraine. We’ve just had an acupuncture clinic open up here in Chepstow and I’m tempted to try it for my shoulder pain.

  5. Devon,

    There are a lot of peeps out there that better watch out for those Karma Dogs you are talking about.


    Happy writing!

  6. We’ve had construction next door for just about a year now, and it’s amazing what liberties they take and how rude they can be… there’s a strange sense of entitlement based somehow on the fact that it’s NOT their home or neighborhood that allows them to strut around as if they own the place.

  7. I know what you mean about Script Frenzy. I haven’t been doing well since I got back from vacation. I’m still going to try to finish, but I seem to have lost the thread of the story.

    I’m glad you are feeling better. Sorry about all the trouble with the building. I remember everything from before and I’d hate for you to have to go through all that again.
