Hey everyone, how are you?
It’s finally the weekend and one that I am going to split up into two parts, writing and gaming.
I still have a lot of writing to get done, on various projects. But I also want to spend some time over the weekend relaxing as well. So, I have split the days up so that in the morning I am gaming and in the morning and writing in the afternoon. I may also write in the evening as well. This is because I am under orders to improve my sleep routine and one thing is to not look at screens for an hour and a half before I go to bed. So if I am not reading I may do some fiction writing. I had previously not wanted to write in the evening but I am limited on what I can do in this non screen time, so, I will give it a try. But this morning I am going to be gaming some more, I spent a lot of yesterday gaming. I am just loving the game that I am playing at the moment as it is so well thought out and it’s a great story. It’s not the usual type of game that I would play, but something about it intrigued me.
In the afternoon, I will be writing, I will be focusing on my mental health narrative for the book chapter. It is something that I have started and have been writing in fits and starts. I am mindful of the fact that it can be triggering for me and I am making sure that I am okay when I am writing it and afterwards. Not all of it will go into the book chapter but some of it will. So, I need to make sure that it is written well. In the evening if I decide to write it will be some fiction, rather than non-fiction. I want to finish off the current novel chapter that I am writing and then start a short story that I have planned. I will be good to go back to fiction writing as I have missed doing it. And I think it showed in the creative writing group the other day. As I really enjoyed the group this week and want to do more of it.
If I am not writing in the evening then I will probably read. I am still on the same non-fiction and fiction books. I need to get through them and move on to others that I have piled up. Even though in this time I am not allowed to look at screens I am allowed to play some music or a podcast. So, I may have that on in the background, as the silence might actually drive me mad in time. There are podcasts that I want to listen to but have never seemed to have the time, so, this maybe a chance to start listening to them more. It should be a good weekend and I am hoping that the balance between writing and gaming will be a good one, like it has been in the week.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
