To be extraordinary…

Yesterday, my big achievement was finishing the RD short story synopsis. I really hope I can make the 10k limit, but it looks like it’s not going to work, I’m not going to force it into the proverbial cubbyhole. I’ll submit MUSIC OF HIS HEART (after adding in some holiday flavor text here and there) and I’ll release this story all on its own because I really do like the story. A little simple, but I really like the images it brings up in my mind. Mostly, I think I really like Viola, although now I’m starting to wonder if I should maybe change the name because Viola playing the violin…seems kind of on the nose, if you get my drift.
Today, I woke up around 3 in the morning, mostly because Bmo was rolling around that stupid metal ball and making such a fucking racket. Couldn’t get back to sleep, so I loafed around until 4:30, got up, had some coffee, studied some JP and now it’s a little past 6 AM. I’m going to warm up my writing muscles by replying to FIGHT (I should really be doing this every morning) and then I need to work on finishing Chapter 18 of DARK MOON RISING. After that, I’m going to get started on that short story, no title yet. I’m supposed to go to the gym today. Argh. Once I come back from the gym, I’ll have lunch and I’ll be hardpressed not to take a nap. Today is Sunday, but I can’t use days as excuses for not getting work done. I need to be more disciplined and hardworking than the average, ordinary person, if I want to be over-average, extraordinary. If there’s one lesson, I can take from Mom, that would be it.
Right, I think that’s all for now. Hopefully, I can pop back in tomorrow, feeling proud and productive that I was able to complete everything on my to-do list.
I can do this!
