Long Monday

A 51-post collection

Long Monday, Around and Around...

Once more, I am in a holding pattern pending payday. Once more, it's a "next payday" situation to wait for the cat's dental.

Tomorrow, I am going to ring the vet's and see if I can pay for it on the installment plan. I don't like waiting this long and it feels like I may never have all of the money I need all at once. Blargh.

It's a momentous week, this week. I am plotting and PLN'ing to get samples of Kingdom of Sand done. At least the first two books. Because haven't written the third just yet. Those, and the samples from A Devil's Tale should take me into the middle of the week.

And also because at chapter eighty-firkin-two I finally get my protagonists to meet and talk to each other. Huzzah!

If Chapter 82 is the one-third mark, then it may well be a firkin series. Fun. Especially since many of the publishers I was looking at want their novels trimmed to 110K. They don't seem to realise that 120K is like bog standard for fantasy and scifi novels. Like average length for the things.

A Devil's Tale is either going to be a trilogy or a bloody cockie-crusher tome.

Meh. I write it until I reach the end of it and then I try to flog it. And also get my arse back to finishing the Kingdom of Sand trilogy.

At least I can be certain that I have never written anything on the level of crucifix nail nipples aka the Bane of Joy Demorra. Seek Tumblr out for further info on that.

As always on Long Monday, I stream my story, I nap, and then I publish the dang thing. Any content generated during the day is bonus score stuff.

Story when it's daylight.

Long Monday, No PLNs

I should edit ten more chapters. I should filter ten more publishers. I should build at least one more chamber or one more void in TaleSpire.

BUT I'm already tired as fuck so none of that is likely to happen.

Monday's the day I expect nothing out of myself. And also the day that I usually end up writing like three chapters of A Devil's Tale. There's an equal chance that I will just sleep all day.

We shall see.

Long Monday, Plague Day 21, End the Roids

Today is the last day I am taking the roid pills. Also the day I should make appointment to find out about roid puffer and get body mod referral. Not that I know when those mods will -or if- ever happen.

Today is also Long Monday, so most of my activity will be via apps.

There's also the Foundry reads, later on.

After I get a napnap.

I have PLNs to at least acquire Beloved's Outaversary present. I may be making a

Long Monday, History Repeats

This time, we have ample warning of a new rash of plague threatening to sweep the nation. And this time, there's absolutely no motion to try and quell the tide.

Everyone's fucking given up and it's going to kill so many people.


I'm going to have to spend even more time in isolation because of those maskhole knomiras who don't care what happens to anyone else so long as THEY don't get consequences. Well, my dearies, Death doesn't have a manager

Long Monday, Low Expectations

The crew and I have attempted to play several games in one sesh. Rutrum got sick of Minecraft, and I get it. The game can get on your pecs if you're not careful.

But we had fun, anyway.

The remainder of my morning is dedicated to the story stream, then letting Beloved take over the parenting at least for this morning. Then I must discuss how to remove mods from our versions of Satisfactory. Or at least turning them off.

Because sharing

Long Monday Again!

Tale Foundry has moved their stream to this oncoming Saturday, so I didn't have to fret about that. Yet. I still have chambering and world building and NOW I have a shared Minecraft world with my fellow players to have fun with. Which means some hours dedicated to a duplicate world in Creative Mode to work out what the hell I'm doing with the hole I found to inhabit.

Where to put the roast chicken machine, where to put the roast beef

Long Monday, Tired Bean

It's school hols so Beloved and I can spend a morning snuggling. Once I have had sufficient rest, I shall post the story stuff.

TBH I'm only posting this now to prevent anxiety in the few people who check this blog for what's going on.

Next week's D&D sesh with my international team of maniacs promises to be interesting. We might be playing Minecraft together :D Depends on who has what ready in time.

But that's a problem for later.

Long Monday, the Exhaustening

It's been a fun game, not gonna lie. My players thought they could fill in an entire hour with faffing about, then decided to try sneaking up to the Dragon and then...

They didn't have a fucking plan of attack.

They have a week to think of one whilst I decide on the resolution to the cliffhanger.

I shall do my story stream, then waken the rest of my house before catching what nap I can before the TaleFoundry readings.

Long Monday, New Map PLNs

I finished level 8 of 23 and have begun level 9. Yay.

Given that it's a map with actual right angles, I shall heartily enjoy making this one a virtual reality. So to speak.

I'll leave all the trickiest parts for last. Save what there is of my sanity for another day.

That's IF I feel like rising from my bed before the afternoon.

It's a day that I do not expect very much from myself. It's allowed. Thanks to wonky sleep

Long Monday, Sleeplessness

We did have a fun day out, if a very long one. This long Monday is made even longer by not having enough of a rest. So my PLNs involve (1) Publishing my tale, and, (2) getting some firkin SLEEP.

D&D was manic. In no particular order, my players: Got drunk, took drugs, slept together, and birthed a Treeant. Check the VODs on my Twitch stream. It's wild.

By this afternoon, we should all be able to enjoy and partake
