On Writing: I’m stuck. Stuck on a plot point and I can’t decided if it’s crazy pants good or crazy pants bad. I must mull this over a bit. I do have a scene to add and work on, and once that scene is done, it might help me decide on the stuck plot thread. So, the writing plan for today is: #1 Write the scene. #2 List out all the options for this stuck plot point and throw a dart to pick one. Kidding! #3 If still stuck, work on Texas WIP for a day just to mix it up a little.
On Life: Feeling a little emotionally stuck too. In a slight funk. I think it’s because after a whirlwind few months where things happened so fast that I didn’t really have time to deal with everything…it’s all hitting now. So, I have come up with a plan!
#1 Eat chocolate. Isn’t chocolate supposed to make you feel happier? Oh, crap, now that I think about it, I think it’s exercise that does that. (Huh. Not nearly as fun or easy as eating chocolate.)
#2 Get a puppy! Okay, I’m sorta kidding about this one, only I’m not. We’re a dog family. The Engineer and I got a dog our first year of marriage and except for a few months here and there, we’ve always had a dog as part of family. And I really miss Bella. I’m still not quite ready, but think in a few months (like maybe around Christmas time) I think I’ll be ready.
