blows off the dust

It’s been a while since I was last here.  Sorry everyone!  Lots of stuff going on.  I went on a cruise vacation the last week in October.  I had never been to Florida before, so I thought it was kinda neat sailing out of Miami.

Remember this, if you choose to go on a cruise the last week in October prepare for the Halloween costume party.  It gets crazy, then again it might have been like that because the cruise line I chose was Carnival.Superman!

 

I digress, though the pictures do look fun, don’t they?

The other thing I’m having to deal with now is that I’m having to pack and move again.  Since I’ve been out on my own I’ve been living in apartments.  I’m also paying off my student loans.  I have about three years left to go before that’s finished (I thought it was two, but I miscalculated).  Think of it, I haven’t missed a single payment.  Once it’s paid off, along with my car at about the same time it’ll be like having an extra week’s pay (won’t that be nice?)  Anywho, I gotta move again because the complex I moved to last year is hiking my rent majorly.

I do have a new place, but nothing’s official yet.  It’ll be good once I get it and then move into the apartment.  Because of me packing and such the muses have quieted down a bit.  Though recently they started knocking on the door once again.  I’m about half finished with my story (if 50K words is half), which means I’ll be on the downhill slope for the rest of the plot.

How are y’all doing on your stories?  Let me know!

habits

The hardest thing is getting back into a habit I had.  My original goal was to write around 700 words per day.  I’ve been having problems because of other things that needed to be done.

Finishing classes and graduating.

Critiquing work from my writing group.

And then there was moving.  Though for a time I had no tv and internet.  I got a butt load of writing done.  Maybe I should turn the radio and tv off on the weekends.  I might get more writing done.
