I woke up this morning with gritty eyes and feeling totally exhausted, both sure signs that I did not get enough sleep last night. There is a good reason for that.
I was up late editing the YouTube video I had promised you all yesterday. I was up late editing the YouTube video because I had forgotten all about it until about 11:30 at night. I was all showered and prepared for sleep when the realisation hit me. So, I got back up and did what I promised I would do.
This is the resulting video. Don't judge me, I was tired.
As a total aside, I love how I'm finally able to embed YouTube videos on my blog! My other site wouldn't let me, which is one of the major reasons I switched over.
In any case, it's up and available for you to listen to. I was really nervous, even though there were only three other people there and one of them was my mother. I almost cried at the end of my reading, and I did tear up earlier during the reading of our night's writing challenge. Because nerves. Sigh. Yup, Thirty-years-old and I still cry in public.
I'm going to go die quietly of embarrassment over here.
In other news, writing went really well yesterday. While I didn't quite hit my 3 000 word goal, I did manage quite close to that (2 433) and am not too shy to say that I'm proud of myself. Human just might get finished this year after all. I'm aiming for a similar experience today.
On that note, I must go and write.
