Just another Monday

I was on facebook a few minutes ago. I didn’t really have a reason. I was just procrastinating. I have to get the kids up in a few minutes and rush them off to school. All of the before school prep work is done.

I could take a shower but I would rather save that until I get back home. I only have plans to drop them off, then come home and clean the house. I will probably want another shower after all that is done anyway so I think I will just wait. I can use the time it would take me to shower now, to write and sip my coffee.

If only my brain will co-operate. It feels like a heavy lump sitting inside my skull at the moment. I am hoping by the time this first cup of coffee is gone it will be rejuvenated. I think it is tired from all of the dreaming I did last night.

I don’t remember much, but there is this very vivid bit about trying to hide motorcycle tires in a tool closet and having an old Asian lady for a next door neighbor. I can see her so clearly that she will probably end up in a story somewhere. I don’t know about the bit with the motorcycle tires.

Anyway, I brought up facebook because I just watched this really neat video that was posted to my daughter’s timeline. It was a visual of what I feel like I go through with my characters sometimes. I don’t really draw of course, but there in my head fictional people are having a major kung-fu throw down.

Day 2 and early morning words

So I am up ungodly early in the morning typing away.  I went to bed several times last night but  I kept waking up after just a few hours.  The fact that everyone else in our room was still up probably didn’t help. I am not upset or anything.  We’re at a Con. Sleep is fictional. Even more so if your crazy enough to insist on getting some writing done before the rest of the actual day begins.  Fortunately, there is internet access and a coffee shop in the lobby.

There are several drawing panels I am going to try to make it to today.  While drawing isn’t really something I have a lot of talent in, I still like to do it from time to time and any tips to help me do it better are good.  There a couple of history panels I am going to try to hit too.  One is world history (via Hetalia which is an interesting little anime but often makes my brain hurt) and the other is the history of sweets (as in candy).   If you haven’t guessed, I like to learn things.  Even random things.  Especially random things. You never know when they may be useful.

Case in point: last night I explained to my Con roommates how lithium batteries work.  I only knew because I watch a random science thing on tv at 2am on Weds.  My friends are used to my random facts by now. ( One is a fellow writer and the others suffer us patiently.)
