This weekend was a wash - I've been hovering on the edge of getting sick for a while now (side note: the lack of heating in the office might just push me over the edge), and so I spent most of Sunday in bed, with a slight fever and a sore throat. This morning, I woke with a sore throat again.
It's annoying. It's not that I'm sick, exactly, but I'm just unwell and rundown enough that it's making me miss my morning gym sessions, which makes me hate myself just a little bit. I missed it again this morning, but I'm thinking, unless I get sick properly, I'll go tomorrow. I better go tomorrow. Also, there better be heat in the office tomorrow.
I did manage to get some guitar practice. Not yesterday, but I did a lot on Saturday. Until Galahad decided that he'd had quite enough and started mucking about to get attention.
Still really loving guitar. I'm not so much a fan of the chords, but I'm loving the picking stuff. I'm currently learning Minuet in C, Simple Gifts and Star Spangled Banner. Here is where I grumble about genetics, and how much I wish my little fingers were longer. Mine are short little things that struggle to reach even on a 3/4 sized guitar. I look at the long fingers of others and get jealous. Stupid genetics.
Happily, though, I am writing. Writing, the commission for a tattoo and guitar are about the only things I have managed to keep on top of (and I slipped with the writing last week, too) thus far. I have to get my stuff together and get back on my tasks.
Speaking of writing, I've had to change tack. There are three story lines in this book that are currently unrelated, and so I've decided write each one separately, and then decide how they fit together in the timeline. So, I'm currently writing Cai's part, since the whole series is ostensibly about him. Following that, I'll be writing about Maya and Kellan (new to this book), and last, if there is still room, or if I think I still want to, I'll be writing about the white women. I might not though. I'm in two minds about that. If I hit 100 000 without it, then I won't write it and go with my second idea for it.
Right, I have to get on with rearranging my rough draft to suit this new approach. Luckily, it shouldn't take too much.
I hope you're all much warmer than I am in Ottawa today!
