I know it's probably not really being a good person to ask for things for myself, but screw it, I'm going to anyway. If I can spin any positive light on this list, it's that I want these things so I can make other things to share. If that is agreeable, I shall begin my list. If it is not agreeable, I shall begin my list.
Ready? Here we go:
- Elgato Game Capture HD, so I can finally start my SMC Awkwardly Plays series.
- Wired Xbox controller, so I don't have to change batteries so darn often.
- A whole whack of canvases in different sizes so I can paint stuff for people... and to sell. Because art!
- A whole whack of paints (giant jugs of the stuff, please).
- A publishing contract, please. You know. Because that's totally something Santa does.
So there it is, my Christmas wish list. It is surprisingly short, actually. I really expected myself to come up with a ridiculously long list of things. Apparently not. I'm not as greedy as I thought, I guess. Go me?
So, I did end up writing Friday. Those of you who follow me on Facebook or Twitter will know that I didn't quite make the usual 2 000 words, but I did make my minimum of 1 500 words. I had planned on writing that extra 500 on the weekend, but time ran away with me and I never managed to sit down to write. That's alright, though, since I'm not technically behind my desired word count, even though I feel like I'm behind my desired word count.
Today, I fully expect to get no writing done whatsoever. It is the annual office Christmas luncheon, which is mine to organise. I am certain everything will be fine, but I'm still stressed about it. Of course, there will be wine, so I may be answering the phone slightly tipsy. Don't give me that look. As if I would do that.
Granted, I would do that, just not at work.
In any case, I may be too busy cleaning up after, and the party may go over time and so I can't really comfortably schedule any writing time today. I will try and squeeze some in. I've been having those really awesome moments where scenes from the book will play in my head. It was a rare occurrence with Human and I'm really enjoying it happening again. This probably won't be the last time you hear how much I'm enjoying whatever 'ism' I happen to be experiencing.
So now I'm off to continue with my Welsh lessons, and then it will be time to party. Yay!
Have a fantastic Monday everyone. I shall see you all tomorrow!
PS - have some funny that's funny because it's awful:
