Hey everyone, how are you?
Today, I have my usual online meeting in the morning.
I have my meeting today about the book chapter and then I am shutting down the laptop until Friday. As I am going to make sure that I have some days this week where I am not constantly looking at a screen, in order to help with my pain. As looking at a screen makes it a lot worse. I am waiting for my appointment next week to sort it out. But until then I have to be careful with the amount of time I am hunched over a computer. The good thing is that yesterday I got a fair amount of writing done and completed all the references that I had used so far. That part was the most time consuming as referencing has changed slightly since I last write academically and I needed to get a book that shows how different documents are referenced. But it was good to get it done and I know that the meeting will go well this morning.
Although, I am not going to be looking at my laptop after the meeting until Friday, I will still be writing. This time gives me a chance to write more of the short story and get the second chapter under way. I am really looking forward to it and hopefully I will have something to put up next week. I always write by hand first and then edit and type up. So, all I will need is the plan that I made, which I have printed out and a pen and paper. I have been thinking a lot about the second chapter and how I want the character to evolve. I have also been thinking about the novel and how I am tempted to make it into a trilogy. Although, I think that is partly influenced by the fact that I have been reading the “Hunger Games” trilogy lately.
As for the rest of the time that I am not writing, I will be reading. The pain is stopping me from gaming and drumming currently, so, I am reading like mad. I finished “Mockingjay” by Suzanne Collins yesterday evening. It was a good trilogy and one that I would recommend. I have not seen the films so I had no idea how it was going to end. And I am tempted to get her new book which is set before the trilogy, but features one of the main characters. I am now reading a new book that came in the post last week. It is “Manhattan Loverboy” and is by the same author as “Chinese Takeout” and “Suicide Casanova.” I am really looking forward to reading it. It is also a short book so I expect it will not take me too long to read. One thing that I have done is lowered the reading challenge I had set myself on goodreads from eighty books to seventy. I am aiming to hit the target and more if I can.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
