Focus

A 9-post collection

Reasons to Focus

If I get done early, I can listen to a new episode of The Adventure Zone. Which I can't find at the moment because it isn't yet out on iTunes.

If I get done early, I can work on that painful fanfic I'm writing and thereby be able to torture folks when I'm done posting Fifteen Little Words. [Because all writers are secretly arseholes, that's why]

If I get done early, I can fart around in Factorio, Minecraft, or one of the Discords where online friends and I are setting up to play some D&D.

So of course my garbage brain is like: I wanna do all'a that fun stuff NOW! What's stopping me?

Responsibility (N):

  1. the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone.
    "we train those staff who show an aptitude for managerial responsibility"
  2. the state or fact of being accountable or to blame for something.
    "the group has claimed responsibility for a string of murders" / "the organization denied responsibility for the bomb attack at the airport"

Oh yeah. That.

If I wanna be a writer, I have to write. If I wanna publish novels, I have to make them. If I wanna reach my goals, I have to take steps to achieve them.

...even when I don't really wanna.

Sigh.

Bitcoin continues to waver in the "no profit" zone for me, so this whole week has been a sack of farts.

FOCUS!

Mayhem is sick at home. Throwing up. So I'm dragging him to the doctor's a little later on. Story is happening whenever because this.

On the plus side: The Gold Coin Grass is working. All the you-have-gallstones side effects are present. On the other hand, that includes vomiting which means another trip to the doctor's.

The other plus is that I now know of Ursodeoxycholic acid. [ur-so-de-ox-ee-ko-lick]which will dissolve the gallstones and bypass the need to get the gall bladder removed.

Tuesday

It's Patreon Day (tm) and I hope to get some different things up. For those of you following my fanfic shenanigans, I have two offerings and one may be full of squick. Approach with caution. I will add squick warnings for all things squickable.

Maybe even a squick tag. That can be a thing.

Now that I've said an invented term too many times, [urban dictionary is your friend] I can move on to other business.

The TAZ Fic Writer's Discord remains

Out of Focus

I managed to daydream the morning away, today. I still have to arrange some dinner protein for the family, but first... I am getting the Instant done as quickly as my fuzzy brain can manage.

And since we're just about out of MCT, I have to go snag some more of that or I'll get worse.

Horrifying thought, that.

So of course it's taken me an hour to get this far and I'll likely take another three hours getting my Instant done

Hocus Pocus

I need to focus.

Once again, my scattershot brain is not staying on task. It wants to do all the fun things, like reading fanfic, writing fanfic, and tooling around on Tumblr for more Shiny Elf Pics.

BUT...

There's the post-Erastide cleanup to do, and I gotta do a bank run before time gets away from me. Again.

Today for realsies, I am doing the Beta Prep for Rael and when it's done, I shall put out a General Call. Desperately Seeking

Fuck

Two hour focus issues, folks.

I sat down here at about six to do my blog and Instant and now it's EIGHT.

I need to do some pre-yule rattling about for bits and pieces. Make sure I have enough stuff and things. And basically cram the fridge with whatever for the day before the Big One.

I already know that I'm making festive GORP for nibbles so I can get the biz for that, no problem.

Eggs, cream, oranges, and other perishables

Focus Issues

I didn't art, yesterday. I barely had it together for the writing. Which took me all day.

Because shiny asshole elf plot bunny.

And shiny TAZ woobie fic with the boy detective that I'm holding off on until I hit the hump with the aforementioned asshole.

See what I mean about focus?

It's hit rainy season, so everything is well soaked. I want to spend a majority of my time holed up in a warm comfy place and napping the day away.

...gluh...

It's 6:30 AM. It's overcast. And I got to bed at around 11:30 last night.

If there was a better day to just roll over and snooze in bed, I can't name it.

Unfortunately for me, I have this whole 'parental responsibilities' thing that means I have to do the brat run and all that noise. Chaos has foxtails because I couldn't be arsed doing the usual topsy cascade thing. Mayhem's okay, he got everything organised before I dragged myself

I'd say TGIF, but...

Fridays are my busy day. And on top of that, Mayhem now has Home Ec on Fridays so that includes a potentially budget-busting round of every parental's favourite game, What Do You Need For School Now?

I used it as an excuse to get Mayhem some First House stuff on the side. Dollar shops are an amazing source of cheap kitchen shit with a moderate amount of actual quality.

That said, never buy dollar shop tongs. Just... don't. Those fuckers will break
