Yesterday’s migraine slowed me down, but I still managed to get the most pressing deadlined work out. And the corresponding invoices, which is always a relief. So far, no payments are late (although several are right on the line), but, when you work on invoice rather than regularly scheduled payment, there’s always the lag time, so this month has been, financially, a bit tight, even with Jupiter going direct.

Absolutely nothing on the job boards to which I even wanted to pitch.

Did some work on a couple of short pieces. Realized a piece I want to do as a gift for conference attendees will work better for my friend’s new publication, and the one I originally intended for his publication will do better as the giveaway. Live and learn, right? So I have to finish both of them and get them polished and ready in the next couple of weeks.

Train was late, as usual (gee, what a surprise). It started raining as soon as I stepped out of the house, thundering, etc. Oh, well. It was still waiting to rain in the city, so I managed to get to the theatre unscathed.

Survived the show. There are just too many egos and personal agendas going on where there shouldn’t be, and I have no time or patience. It filters from the top down – the show is run by film people, and you can’t run a theatre production like a film production. It’s starting to rot from the core. Eventually, it will implode. But it’s made a lot of people happy, and it’s kept a lot of people employed, and it’s a good piece. It’s just a shame it’s disintegrating the way it is.

I’m thoroughly enjoying Good Omens, although it resonates much more this time around, because of the state of the world.

Too sore and tired to work out when I got home last night, but had a good yoga session this morning, extra long. The Psycho Neighbors seem to have been away last night, so I even got a full night’s sleep.

Decent morning’s work on Good Names. Will try to get some article work done, and then I have errands to run and things to do out of town. I’ll take some writing with me and see what happens. I also have to start moving things over to where I’m working next week. I’ll be home for a few hours on most days, but the bulk of the work will be done elsewhere, and I need to make sure I have what I need with me.

I’ve got some chicken marinating in a honey-soy-mustard sauce – I’m looking forward to that meal tonight!

Off to write, and hope that last night didn’t drain every drop of creativity out of me.

  1. WOW! You must have a lot of energy and determination to keep going. Good luck, writing.

  2. Psycho neighbors – they’re right up there with call waiting as one of the curses of modern times.

    I don’t have any now, but I’ve had them before – the worst were a bunch of college guys in the apartment below mine, years ago, who played “Tears in my Beer” twenty four seven. Once I locked myself out on our porch (don’t ask) for two hours, and I almost developed post traumatic stress syndrome from that song. (Of course, they ignored my yells). Good luck dealing with yours – may they disappear into the black vortex where they belong.

  3. Glad to hear the migraine has gone. Egos are too easy to manipulate, and too harsh for those on the bottom wrung.
    Glad you are happy with the switcheroo of your two pieced AND that Psycho neighbor being away let you get the sleep you need.
    I hope you are able to have a peaceful sunday.

  4. Glad to hear that things are going better for you today. Lots and lots of projects on your plate as usual. 🙂
