You ever had one of those days where no matter what you did you just couldn’t seem to get anything productive done? Like the entire universe was just conspiring against your creativity? I’m not a Nihilist, I don’t think, but I sure started to feel like one as the day unfolded. 😀
It started out with my laptop going through Checkdisk when I booted it up, something I forgot I told it to do yesterday. (Thank you, insomnia) If you know anything about computers, you know this process takes roughly 12 years to complete. No biggie. I have a Windows 10 / Android tablet and a special HDMI cable, so I just connected my monitor, mouse, and keyboard to it and got ready to be productive.
See, I haven’t used my tablet like this in a while, so I had to sync my music to it via my external hard drive, and then Outlook took forever to sync email, and…
Long story short: it was a while before I could actually do anything.
While I was waiting for everything to finalize so I could get to work I had a friend from way back randomly contact me saying she wanted to visit, and after politely declining and rescheduling (I knew it was going to be a late day) Anne – who is finally home! – chimed in with shows like Naked and Afraid and Little Big Shots, which I had never really watched, and they just completely stole my attention. Especially Naked and Afraid. There is no way in hell I would do anything like that. Well, maybe if my big brother was with me (that probably sounds way worse than I meant it 😂) because I know he could pretty much deal with whatever came our way. But these motherfuckers were eating alligators and… it was just insane, and completely riveting.
Productivity-wise, I didn’t have a chance.
That was until I let my ovaries hang and forced myself to get to work. I put my headphones on, tuned out the world, and managed to finish the rough draft of Interview With A Werewolf finally. Kind of. I’m not sure if I’m happy with the ending yet, but I’ll iron all that out when I go through the revision stages. And I’m sure my editor will help too.
All in all, it wasn’t a bad day at all. Even though it had a bit of a bumpy start. 😊
Time to curl up with some anime and comfort my tablet for all the hell I put it through today.
I love you all.
