Hey everyone, how are you?
It’s going to be a weekend of writing and reading.
Today, I will be balancing getting writing done as the deadline is six weeks away, with resting and reading. As I am still waiting for my appointment, which is next Tuesday. I cannot wait for it. Writing wise, I am going to be writing more of the book chapter as well as the short story. I will be having a computer screen free day today, so, it will be all written by hand. I am looking forward to writing some more. I was able to write yesterday in between meetings and I got a good chunk done. I think that today I will write more of the short story than the book chapter. Because I am not looking at a computer and I need to look up references. So, that may have to wait until Sunday. With the short story I have the plan that I have printed out and put in my writing journal. So, I do not need to look at a computer to write it. I want to get most if not all of the chapter written.
I also will be listening to some podcasts today, as I am hoping that one of them that I have found can be used and referenced in the book chapter. The podcast I want to listen to is about an hour and a half long and is an interesting topic. A topic that has come up when researching the book chapter. And either if I don’t end up referencing the podcast, it will be interesting to listen to. The podcast is hosted by Russell Brand and is on shame and vulnerability. One of the other things that I want to do is finished off a book called “Minotaur” which is written by a friend of mine. It is a very interesting story and I am having rouble figuring out who did the crime, which is a sign of a good book. It is a short book, so it may even be finished by the time this blog goes live.
Yesterday, I had a couple of parcels arrived and one of them is a snare drum stand for my reflexx practice pad. I also found a good video on YouTube on how to massage your hand and I have been able to massage my hand enough that I am no longer dropping drum sticks when I practice. It should hold up until my appointment next week. But it means that I can get some light practice done. Using the cymbals are still out of the question, as they are too loud for my headache. But it is good to get some drum practice done even if it is not much. It is a step forward.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
