Friday again! And so quickly, too.

I’m not feeling bloggy today, so it will be a quick one. Some progress was made with editing, but then I had a weird glitch and I lost my work which did not make me happy.

Plus side, only the first time through so it wasn’t very substantive.

Minus side, that’s still annoying.

I’m not missing doing NaNoWriMo, so I’m glad I opted out this year. As for fitness, five days, five workouts, so that was good.

How was your week?

#MondayThoughts: Monday strikes again!

Standard

I was making coffee–you know I tend to make coffee–and glanced over at the cup while gathering the rest of my breakfast.

It was not coffee colored.

It looked like watery almond milk, which is precisely what it was. No coffee.

But I’d put coffee in the basket. I know I’d put coffee in the basket.

Well, it turns out the top of the basket, the cover where the the water drips through, was on backward.

DARN YOU MONDAY!!

(Clearly that’s Monday’s fault, and not mine.)

It’s a somewhat cloudy day, and I have to tell you, on this November 4, I am having zero no NaNoWriMo regret. I’m OK with taking November off this year. If the mood strikes, I can always do one of the camps.

Besides, I’ve got editing to do. With some coffee. Make sure all your coffee basket liddy thingies go on the right way, and have a fantastic Monday.

Well here we are! End of the week and a brand-new month, all in one. It’s been a bit of a strange week, and we have snow on the ground already. When I said winter was on its way, I didn’t mean immediately, but here we are.

Final decision on NaNoWriMo was a no, and an unrepentant one. I just didn’t want the pressure this year; it didn’t sound fun. So I’m striding into November without even the pretense of doing it.

It doesn’t feel bad, I’ll tell you that, which makes me think I made the right decision. Besides, I have a ton of editing ahead.

Speaking of, I’ve made inroads, and while there will be a lot to hammer out, I had a line that made me laugh aloud and feels tonally perfect.

That’s rare.

Workouts were five days, five workouts, and this week we had some fun ones on Daily Burn 365. Zombie Apocalypse on Wednesday. Yesterday everyone was in costume.

So that’s me! How was your week?

Ten Word Photo Prompt: Halloween

Standard

It’s ten word photo prompt time! And given it’s Halloween, we’re going lightly spooky, not quite as creepy as last week.

So using the picture above, write a story of ten words. Exactly ten.

Ready? Here’s mine:

Reluctantly transformed, Ariadne fought for balance with only four limbs.

#MondayThoughts: Right round, baby, right round.

Standard

It’s sunny, but the leaves are hitting the ground. I ordered some additional bad-weather boots and I’m preparing myself.

Winter is coming.

It always does. Meanwhile, this year, the very year I’d swear only just started, is breezing by. Breezing is the wrong word.

It’s squealing by like a rusty merry-go-round with crumbling, reluctant gears. But it still moves faster than you think it should.

I’m leaning toward no NaNoWriMo this time, the idea of greeting November without the pressure sounds much better to me, more enticing than the fun of getting it done.

But we’re not at November yet. Almost.

But not yet.

I’ve miles and miles of editing to go, as I’m only taking my first run though, so I should get to that. Have a marvelous Monday.

It’s been a week. An “Everything falls on the floor the moment you get it into place” week.

So not a great week.

I did do some editing, not enough but some, and more to come today. And fitness-wise, five days, five workouts.

They were good workouts, though I got up this morning extra sore. That’s good, right?

Looking forward to a quiet weekend. So that’s me, how was your week?

Ten Word Photo Prompt: Oops

Standard

It’s ten word story time! Actually it’s pretty well past ten word story time, but life got in the way. Life and a collapsing clothes rack, but details, details.

So you know the drill.

It’s a gruesome-looking one today, isn’t it? What the heck, it’s October.

Using the photo above, write a ten word story. Exactly ten words.

Ready?

Here’s mine:

Looking at her hands, Oona realized it was over. Finally.
