A 1511-post collection

Saturday! Saturday!

All I have to do today is this blog and the Instant. Which means -theoretically- more freedom to do the things I enjoy.

Alas, my lovely family has been helping me eat my prepped meals, so part of today's adventures is going to involve going out and getting supplies for the NEXT batch of meal preps. We also have to defrost the upright freezer so there's room for all the stuff we actually consume, as opposed to the stuff that's been sitting there long enough to be of archeological interest.

But I don't want to work on the weekend -_-

Ugh. Gotta be done, gotta start.

At least there's a long weekend to do extra rounds on these shenanigans. Fingers crossed, we can wrangle it.

End of the Week Already?

It's Friday! What I have on my schedule is added to by the unfuckening of the house. I have finished editing an episode of Inter-Mission so the next thing to do for the podcast is to record more tales from the weird side.

I'll probably end up doing that during the wee small hours in the morning.

I have 1K to write so I can reach my target goal of 75K this week. If I have the chance for fun times, I'll

I hav a PLN

So I slept in this morning - aka I had a full night's sleep. On one hand - that's good for my noggin. On the other hand, not so great for my followers and the chances of gaining viewers to the stream.

Have no fear, dear readers. I have a PLN.

Thursday's one of those days that don't require too much out of me, so... after I've successfully produced an Instant, I shall be streaming the editing the rest of the podcast

Arghleblarleflarf...

So. I paid for new uniform parts for Chaos yesterday. The day to collect those are today and tomorrow. I'm fairly certain that my order won't be there today. I still have to try for it, though.

Paranoia is a wonderful thing when it teams up with Anxiety and drives this meat suit of mine.

I'm currently debating what to write for Wordpress today and it's probably going to be about "normal" and adaptivity and a middle finger in the general direction

I got organised! Gasp!

Accomplished this morning since I got woken up at like 2:30AM:

  • Stream of editing the next episode of Inter-Mission.
  • Patreon content posted.
  • Acquisition of colourful exterior body wrappings for junior spawn, aka Chaos (Stage One).

Stage Two will happen tomorrow or Thursday. Depending on when they have the stuff in store. I will, of course, apologise for the hassle I introduced to them. My fault. I didn't think of looking for them on Facebook until it was almost too late.

Enter Procrastination Mode

...did I ever leave it? Discuss.

I actually got distracted into finding out about the thing I needed to do and this is one of the very few times that procrastination has worked in my favour. I'm taking that win. Mostly because now I have a PLN.

Huzzah.

The PLN today is to get on with getting on. Money run, house unfuckening, output... All the juicy goodness I can expect on a Monday.

But first... I have a confession.

First, I slept

Late start today

Toasty has been streaming awesome art that makes me want to hide and not practice doodling again :P I've been seeing lots of progress on the next installment of the Divinity Saga(tm).

That said, I'm currently functioning on like two hours sleep -if that- so five seconds after the stream ends, I am shutting down and catching up on some shut-eye.

The story and anything else I do will be likely happening very late indeed.

I'm very tired.

There will be

An early start

Beloved and I got woken up by heavy rains. A good soaking will help the plants grow and the local wildlife stay hydrated. This is a good thing, but we need it to not flood.

I saw the beginnings of a conspiracy video concerning weather control, and it was all "this is the thing" and zero proof, but the person who shared it with Steemit seemed to think that these rain machines were why Australia's on fire now.

There was no walkthrough

::Sits back with popcorn::

People have stopped investing in coal! This is awesome news for the environment, but terrible news for the Australian economy because we as a nation have been riding on the coal nugget's back for quite some significant time.

Of course, ScoMo and pals could have seen this coming when China, our biggest buyer of Aussie coal, started making moves to clean up their air quality. I'd have bailed the fuck out of coal back then.

...the second-best time to do that is

Whoof...

There's only three stories in Episode 21 of Inter-Mission because story #3 is We're Mostly Harmless, I Swear... the one that started off all the Space Orciness in my pet universe. It's a long, long story. So is the immediate next one.

The fires in NSW and Victoria are finally dying down. I suspect it's more due to there being little left to burn. Of course, there being an influx of severe rainstorms is probably helping with the lack of fire, but

This blog versus 750 words

So most of you who follow my Tumblr know that I've signed on to 750words.com for the one month free trial. Unlike other 'free' trials, it doesn't require access to your credit card first, so that's an automatic win right there.

I also have had a cyclone headache for longer than 12 hours. I'm on painkillers now, but sooner or later, I shall have to cash in that prescription for panaforte or whatever it was with the codeine because cyclone season

I need to brain

I tried getting up early, but it was too late to stream, so not a lot got done on the whole podcast front I have a LOT of editing to do and streaming kept me on task, but now I'm sleeping through my streaming time and I have no idea what to do.

What I can do is keep trying anyway. I could stream on Saturdays and get the same work done. It's not as if there was anyone following my streams

Back to Normal... ish?

Beloved goes back to work, so I'm re-entering my goal of hitting 72K by Friday. I know I haven't done shit all about that goal for like two weeks and it also doesn't matter if I can't find beta readers to clean it up for publication.

I have done all the things I should be doing except my 750 words. Which almost defeats the purpose. Whoops.

I will be getting on with that as soon as I'm done with this.

What I'm

BUGGRIT!

Once again, my inability to count is hurting my day. I have to go through my master file and be sure all the numbers are incremental. Whee.

That's going to take a little patch of time.

Things will be fixed. Eventually. From thence onwards, I vow to check my counting accuracy every fifty stories. That should keep me sorted. I hope.

It's been raining here - which I like - but not on the fires. Boo.

I also binged The Witcher and

New Year of Stories!

Yesterday was the last story of 2019. Now I go to write the first story of 2020. Just as soon as I finish my blog for today.

I've started up with 750words.com to see where my mind doth wander and whether or not this is actually going to help me focus on my writing. Current results say no.

I have a month free trial, and I'm going to use it. If it doesn't help me in one way or another in
