Random Tidbits...

Okay, my new schedule is kicking my...

So I thought I'd share what I've been up to the past few weeks. Life has been pretty hectic. Not that it's not always so but it has been even more.

1. I'm getting acclimated to my new job. It has been difficult. I haven't worked in some time now so I am adjusting horribly. LOL Well, I'm trying but going to sleep at 1 in the am is probably not a good thing when you wake at 5 am.

2. I found a TV show that seems promising: Terra Nova. I can't wait to see how this story progresses. I'm not a huge TV watcher so I'm kinda of excited. My last fav TV show was Lost. The only problem: I've been so busy I haven't had time to watch it at its regular time slot. Thank God for DVR and my secretive family. They won't spill the beans.

3. I've been writing a lot in a writing journal. I've never really did it before but when I take lunch at work the last thing I want to do is look at another computer. So I've been writing long hand. I like it. Didn't think I would though. Wish my fingers luck.

4. I'm working on the end of my high fantasy story. And I might be a little biased but it is coming along nicely. I'm super excited about this story. LOL, I'm excited about every story I write.

What are you up to? Let us know in the comments.

Have a great day. Read a book and laugh!!!!


  1. Sorry you aren't adjusting well to your new job. That can be difficult. I'm afraid I'll be in that position when my daughter is in school full time next year. :(

    I'm glad your high fantasy is going well. That's good news. Good luck with it.

  2. Congrats on your new job, first of all. I still write long hand too, sometimes. I'm always glad to do when a computer's not accessible but typing it is a different story.

  3. My teaching schedule is going to take some getting used to. Lots of essays to correct! As for my TV viewing, I'm getting into Boardwalk Empire. Good luck with the job!

  4. New schedules are always hard to adjust to. Hope you feel more comfortable in yours soon.
    I am loving Tera Nova as well. But that might be the kiss of death. The shows I like are always cancelled.
    I've been busy avoiding my current WIP - by reading like crazy. Which, you know, "counts" in the writing life, so all is not lost ;)

  5. Dawn-so sorry about the adjustment period. It can be a nightmare until you find a routine that feels comfortable. I am like you about TV. I prefer movies because it's like a one night stand--no commitment is required. Since I write at night I can't afford to commit. Great news about the story. Keep the faith.

  6. Terra Nova is one of my favorite shows that the hubby and I watch.

    I am also starting to write long hand. I am having some troubles because when I get really excited, I end up writing too fast and then I can't read my handwriting.

    Hmm, what am I up to? Well, I have officially shelved a WIP because it's just not mean to be written right now. I have two more WIP's floating in my head that I'm working on, a couple of short stories, and just trying to keep up with my school and work life in between all of that.

  7. I am starting to adjust, somewhat -LOL. Thanks for the encouraging words. I'm thinking with the state of our economy I should feel blessed to have a job- and one that isn't too bad at that. I just hadn't worked in a while. Thanks again for your comments!!!!
