Dear Diary

A 1240-post collection

Almost Done!

I've been doing 1K a day so I have all the more time for other projects and worldbuilding for my next WIP.

Speaking of WIP's, I have made a beginning on editing Ep4 of Inter-Mission. Which means I'm one episode closer to actually publishing these mofos. If I put them out on non-game-night Fridays, I have an occasion I should easily remember.

Should is not is. In this case, 'should is not will'. It's not a guarantee, it's more of a hope. As in... I hope I remember to do this regularly.

Powers know that I do not have the wherewithal to pump out an episode every week. I barely have the wherewithal to get out of bed when I wake up at 3AM or earlier. Nevertheless, I went to that effort and I have the minimum number of stories on file for Ep4 to happen.

When next I wake up early, I shall edit the rest of the ep. I have tomorrow and Friday free... well. Free-er than I would have if I was writing 500 words per diem, so I shall, perhaps, get Ep5 wrapped as well.

Then I shall figure out where I can dispense my 'wisdom' and go do that. Preferably for free. Then I hope and wish for sponsors whilst maintaining something resembling a record-and-wrap schedule that orbits my sleepless hours. Whee.

For now... I take a breather and get ready for the brat run.


Today's agenda started off somewhere close to fuckoff in the morning so...

  • [X] Finished editing together episode 3 of Inter-Mission - two more and I start publishing these mofos
  • [X] Published stuff for my Patrons over on Patreon
  • [X] Wrote a decent half of the 1K words I had pln'd for today

Yet to do:

  • [ ] This blog
  • [ ] Instant story
  • [ ] Flash fanfic
  • [ ]┬áThe other half of the 1K words I have pln'd for today.

So... yeah. I'd better get rattling. I'm just about

Heading For the End

This is the last week of writing B'Nar. Yeeks. The last 3K. This is terrifying and exciting and invigorating at the same time. After this, after a week off to fart about and maybe work on some fanfictions and definitely worldbuild...

I am about to embark on my biggest project yet.

An entire trilogy. Not a baby one like Hevun's Child, but a big-arse one. Three books of 120K each. 360K words over three years. Likely sweating cobs the entire time.

A Day of Rest

Sunday. As far as I'm aware, we have no plans. Which means I have a chance to go nowhere and do nothing. It's a rare treat to have that.

Beloved and I have designed the skeleton of the future Kitty Kondo(tm) and we will be making plans to go to a Tradie's shop during the week so we can acquire all the mats.

That's "materials" for anyone who's never played World of Warcraft.

Next on the agenda is designing the walkway

Not a Sausage

Aussie polls used to have cake stalls. They used to have craft fairs and stuff to earn money from the school where they were. Up until really recently, there was only a sausage sizzle as a fundraiser.

You can't get a snag at the polls any more. Dangit.

Thank goodness for Bunnings, which knows where the money's at.

I did not vote for Jon Snow, King in the North. It was a close thing. The really close thing was deciding which one

GAME NIGHT! Woot Woot!

After a month of deprivation, we're back in the game :D I'm stoked. The ur-game of D&D is back on for sure.

Every player, consciously or no, plays "break the DM" because making your DM laugh is such fun. Likewise, making them say, "What the fuck?" or calling on their deities in any tone of voice.

I actually do want to make our DM a third-eye hat. I just have to find the mats and then twiddle about with them

Chaos Birthday!

On this day, fourteen years ago, a tiny new Human was surgically extracted from another Human and began a very interesting life. On this day, a pair of very bright eyes began assessing the world for chaos potential.

My little girl is fourteen, and we're having a feast day. I've already binged on chocolate :D I also sent her along with little chocolate cupcakes. We will be shopping for a birthday cake after she gets back from school, and going for a

I recorded another story this morning, just in case the five I have are too short for episode three. I started putting ep three together and I should have that in the can by tomorrow afternoon.

What did not happen was the 1K words I had pln'd. It was a very busy day. I got a lot of the stuff on my shopping list [forgot Chaos' cupcakes] but I didn't have a lot of energy for writing after that.

Did get all

Round and round I go

Mayhem's back to school after battling off the Lurgi. I need to gather supplies. There's also Patreon Day(tm) in which y'all get to catch up on my shenanigans. Then there's the Instant, the Flash Fanfic, and the (planned) 1K words towards my final goal of a finished novel.

I'm a busy nugget today.

So things might be late. Things might be forgotten. Things might end up dropping off the priority list. I'm trying my best, and my best is all I

Yet Another Monday

Yet another week of kidwrangling. Yet another 3K words towards the end of my novel. Yet another week of writing stories with the hope of gaining Notice from someone influential enough to get me on the lists of the worthy.

It was a long-arse day, yesterday. Today promises to be longer because I am still exhausted.

I did wake up at 3AM again, but... I didn't go record anything because tired. I need more rest.

In diet news, I'm trying a Stevia/

Busiest Day

A very comforting Primary Parental's Day to all those who do all the worrying, cleaning, running errands, and wearing themselves to a frazzle in order to drag the next generation (kicking and screaming optional) into the current era.

Today, the family is heading straight to Scenic Coominya to do some reno stuff for Capt S. Some time after we do the election stuff. I suspect I'll be dragged along for the "fun".

All the better to maybe do some ficcing with, I

Stuff, Nonsense, and a Busy Weekend

We're on a mission... to get more orange bags and trade in the ones we've already filled with recycling.

I also aim to get my hands on some Xylitol, MCT, and some other stuff for my general health. If I can, I'm getting my mitts on some mats so we can at least start some work on the Homemade Kitty Condo(tm).

...I might document some of that for my Patrons. I might document some of that here. I dunno yet. I'll

I Got This... I Think

So. Friday. Cleaning day because broken week. One thousand words for the novel due. Also the usual palaver with the Instant and the Flash Fanfiction.

This weekend is when Mother's Day is happening, so I gotta remember to at minimum call MeMum. I know Beloved and KIABIL are headed down to Capt S's to do some minor tasks and a dinner out.

I never know what I'm doing from one day to the next. The best I have is my patterns and

I fucked up (again)

I forgot to write Wordpress Wednesday. Basically, I ran out of oomph to write anything and farted off my evening by absorbing relax time.

Sorry about that.

Most of my daily energy was absorbed in fetching an interwebs order from the post box. I got an extra one for free, and the Post Office in its infinite wisdom, decided to put both of these parcels in separate boxes, and notify me in separate texts. yeah, I had to go back for

I just finished episode 2 of Inter-Mission and my next battle is recording the next set of stories for the masses.

Somewhere out there is a hyper-specific gremlin who will appreciate what I'm doing here. I hope they have lots of gremlin friends.

Speaking as a self-confessed hyper-specific gremlin - I feel you, pal. Been there, done that, been scoffed at by the "normals"... 'druther be a gremlin.

Anyway... This week spurs a four-week journey in which I detail my personal experiences
