4:30AM is a great time to wake up…NOT

I’ve been up since around four thirty. Don’t know what woke me up…maybe the cats or whatever. It’s clear that I’m not allowed to get a solid eight hours of sleep, maybe not until this weekend and even then it’s iffy. I was thinking about what I want to do with the Fionn Jameson brand. Do I want to continue it? I’d like a more ethnic name that is more true to me, but I’m not sure if I have the courage to start over.
I got sucked into doing some research about Radish Fiction, which is something a friend in Korea told me about. I’m probably not that interested, but I’d like to keep it as an option…a shame he’s not a part of it, though. I guess it’s an app that delivers serial fiction?
In other news, I really need a quieter keyboard. Either that or go upstairs or whatever. I miss Korea, but I’m glad to be home. There’s way too much stuff that I am seriously backlogged on. The novella for the summer antho…omg, am I screwed. I’ve got to finish that by the 15th, if I have any hope of submitting it.
Ugh, too busy, too busy. And I already feel like going back to bed, FAIL. I just might. It’s way too early for me to do anything and I can’t even type as much as I want without worrying that I’ll wake Dave.
Yeah…I think I’m gonna go back to bed.
IN BED… … …
Okay, I’m up now. Ate the leftover soybean soup with rice and some side dishes and was sleepy afterwards, so I heated up the coffee I MEANT to have for breakfast because while it would be great to take a nap and blame everything on my travels, I don’t have the luxury of fucking around anymore (I keep saying this, but reneging, wtf). Added some coconut oil and cream to my coffee and now I’m going to work hard. I’m going to use the focus booster app and try to get down 4 15-minute sessions of writing. Next week, I really want to send over THD #2 for copyedits to Red and work on dev edits for DMR. Not to mention all the other projects I’ve got to finish, arghhhhh.
I’m struggling to keep my head above the water, but I’m not doing too well.
Well, better start kicking to the surface. See you there.
2:43PM
Okay, just took a 2 hour nap and boy did it feel good. Actually, it was longer, maybe closer to 3 or 4, but I definitely needed it. Now I’m up and ready to get some more work done. So far, I’ve got 1k done of SUMMER LOVER and I’m going to write another 1k, closing today off at 2k. Tomorrow, since Dave’s at home, I might go to a coffeeshop like Starbucks and attempt 3k all in the hour and half I have before I have to use the restroom. Man, I miss the public bathrooms in Korea.
Right, that’s all from me. I’m hungry right now. Trying to decide if I should drink a shake, but then I’ve got a class to teach at 6:30 presumably tonight, so maybe just wait an hour and start cooking at 4? I’m thinking of making bibimguksu for dinner tonight. Maybe run over to the veggie store for a fresh break. So far, Day 2 of no meat. Although technically, I had KFC yesterday, so today’s the first full day of no meat. It’s not that I’m particularly politically motivated, but I do feel like vegetarians might be somewhat healthier, and besides meat has a lot of calories. If I were to make a curry without meat, it would have to be with lots of sweet potatoes, carrots and some other kind of vegetable…not sure how I feel about potatoes. So, in order to get the protein I need, I’ll have to consume a lot more eggs and tofu.
Which reminds me, I need to pick up eggs when I go to the store in a little bit.
