My life lately.
My muse not only deserted me, she cleaned out the reference library too. In my head she sat behind a desk in a version of the Sunnydale High School library. Now it's just empty shelves and cobwebs. Damn her. Any muse's needing a new home? I'll take good care of you, promise.
To be honest, I have lately felt the urge to write, but not Buffy. So, what the hell. It's my journal I can write whatever the hell I want. In the near future expect to see (if you are interesed and behind cuts of course) Stargete Atlantis, Forever Knight, Bones, Farscape, and, maybe, I'll be motivated to finishing some of those Buffy stories.
I joined Romance Writers of America and will be joining the local chapter even if I will not be able to go to most of the meetings. They usually meet on the last Saturday of the month, and that is always month end closing at work and since I work in the shipping office, I have to be there. I got to go to the one in Novemeber because they moved it up a week due to Thanksgiving and I met a lot of people and got the most encouragement I have ever had. I was told about a big conference in Phoenix in April and I intend to go, so that will take care of resolution #3 if I get the thing in submittable condition by then.
I started a sensible weight loss effort the first of September. By Thanksgiving I had lost 32 pounds. Over the holidays I was mostly off program and did gain weight, 7 pounds, but I expected to so I'm not upset with myself. However, I am upset with some friends of ours. Jim, my husband, had to work Thanksgiving day so our friends invited me to dinner at their house. They both commented on my weight loss so far. It was nice, since no one else in my life, work or home, had commented. I can understand since they see me everyday and the change had been gradual. This same couple invited Jim and I over on Christmas eve for dinner and to exchange gifts. My gift was a LARGE box of imported chocolates. I sat there and smiled, but it felt like a slap in the face. I had to work on the 26th so I took the box there and it was gone pretty quickly. I just don't understand. Am I being too sensitive, or was that a really thoughtless gift?
Enough for today, or I'll not have anything to write about tomorrow and blow resolution #2 before it even gets started.
