My apologies for not posting for over a week.  I can chalk it up to a number of things, including writing, fatigue, work, sleep, and gaming (which goes hand in hand with procrastination).  I bought myself a late birthday present last week in the form of an Xbox 360, and I’ve been enjoying the hell out of it.  For the curious, my gamertag is wordmachine, so feel free to be social and kick my ass at a game of Team Fortress 2.

I’ve got about 20 or so handwritten pages of imagiNATION.  Not sure what the equates to in terms of word count, and to be honest, I don’t even want to know.  The story is moving, though, albeit at a much slower pace than I’m used to because of writing it all by hand, but it’s a much different experience.  Much more organic, and the language has improved because of this.

Unfortunately I’m sick today. So is Erica.  We both went to work, and by 10:30 I had a fever and feelings of nausea.  She was up and down all night with a fever, but insisted on going to work anyway.  So much for that.  We slept for almost four hours this afternoon; now we’re going to have soup and sandwiches for dinner and turn in early tonight.  For now, in lieu of a real blog post, I’m going to go eat, take some medicine and settle down for some mindless fun.

But before I go, to keep it somewhat writing-focused, here’s something I meant to post months ago.  A friend of mine gave this to me.  I forget where she found it, but that doesn’t matter.  Give it a look-see.


Until next time,
