Well…I’m 31 now. How underwhelming. I really did think I was going to be in a better place than I am now. Let’s hope my 32nd birthday I can look back and say my 31st year was much better than my 30th.
Yesterday I didn’t write. I didn’t read. Mostly I just slept. It was strangely therapeutic. I think my body knew aside that I might’ve needed it, since last night I basically did not sleep at all because David didn’t sleep. I got some sleep after he left for work, but I still woke up at 9 and farted around until noon, when I went to Walmart and picked up some stuff for dinner. Dave offered to take me out, but I don’t really want to go out, nor is there any place I’d want to eat at. If anything I might want to check out the GuaMao buffet, but I doubt it would be worth the super pricey cost. So, I just bought some beef and potatoes and I’ll probably make some salisbury steak and mashed potatoes. Dave thinks he’s going to cook. Haaah. I need to make extra, so he’ll have something to take to work tomorrow. That cafeteria food is bound to be absolutely shite.
I’ve got about 18k more to go for EVOLUTION. I’m nearing the part where Reika comes into grips of her new powers and she has to decide exactly what she wants to do with it. She’s sacrificed herself so that Hayashi and Himeya can get to the safezone with the needed supplies. Initially, I made it where Himeya sac’ed herself so Reika can survive, but then I thought about it and realized that Reika couldn’t let such a thing happen. She’s sick of being scared. I don’t know if that’s just me writing through my characters, but I’d like to think that at some point, she’d be done acting like a coward.
Jaycee emailed me to tell me she’ll get started on the cover tomorrow. Wow. Didn’t expect she could get to it so soon. I’ve got so many half-finished projects, I really shouldn’t be starting something new ala THE BEAST QUEEN. I don’t know. But honestly, I think I’m starting to get a little sick of writing in 1st person now. 3rd person is so much more…I dunno, free-ing. Maybe that’s why I’m deciding to start something new, because everything else is in 1st person.
