Stopping By to Say Hello

How are you all doing? I hope everyone’s enjoying Black Hole Son. I hope someone’s reading Black Hole Son.

I’m about 3/4 of the way through the Neil Gaiman master class. A lot of useful information in the beginning, good for fleshing out my novel. I’m more confident about it now, but I’m wstill super nervous about fleshing it out because I don’t have an full outline yet. After I’m done with this I’ll move onto Felicia Day’s book. And then I thought there was a third one I was going to look at but I don’t remember what it is. Maybe after it I’ll start the outline for Terraforming Romance. The book I’m reading now has a different style than what I’m used to. It’s a horror novel, but all the sentences are very short and simple, but the book is 751 pages long. I usually reflect my writing style on what I’m reading, but this is pretty different. I don’t like long sentences, but they could be longer than this.

I’m stil crocheting. It’s nice that I’ve got a desk now where I can put some of my figures. I probably look like an old lady with all these little cute snowman staring at me. I once made a bag that’s so long it goes down to my knees when I strap it on my shoulder.

My favorite thing has been listening to podcasts. Either I’ve picked the right ones, or they’re on a streak, but the car ride to work is a lot easier and shorter when I’ve got them going. I’ve also started working out. Trying to get to a Snap Fitness that’s two minutes away at least every other day. Not sure it’s doing me good, but it’s not doing me any worse, although it does feel like my blood pressure gets spiky after a cardio. But I’ve also been lifting weights and those make me feel buff. It helps that all my shirts are shrunken from drying them in the hot dryer.

I’m sorry this post is so badly written. It feels like I’m writing a high school diary. I just don’t have anything to talk about. Maybe I’m getting more complacent as I get older. The satisfaction with the things that are there instead of the things I want. I guess that’s a sign of maturity, but I see it as a sign that my spark is dying. I write the posts that I’m capable of at that time.
