I'm doing quite well, all things considered. I had a really productive day yesterday, all told. I wrote two blog posts (may usual Monday post for my own blog, and a Tuesday post for Black Gate Magazine). I was finished both just in time to do my midday workout, which I did do.
Side note for those who don't follow any of my socials, I've been doing, as you know from this blog, intermittent fasting for a little bit, and endeavouring to do a workout at least once a day while in quarantine (that's been less successful than I'd hoped). I'm happy to report that something must be working, because yesterday I wore a workout shirt that was a size medium.
I've not worn a size medium since early high school, and while it's still a little tight around the bust (and what isn't for me, to be honest), it fit pretty well. I'm really proud of myself. It's been a colossal struggle to get into the shape that I feel matches my interior self. I'm not there, yet. I'm still quite roily-polly. Just a little less so.
Anyway, it's something for me to celebrate.
Today I will be live streaming my guitar practice, because I reckon it's just a silly excuse for a bunch of folks to gather and chat, while they can make fun of my attempts to learn an instrument.
I will also be writing. I've had folks ask for me to stream that, too, but I'm not sure how that might work. If I'm in the writing zone, I just tune everything else out and write. The zone can last for quite a while (my best/worst writing fugue occurred during the writing of the first draft of The Great Man series. I started writing around 8:00pm, and when I finally looked up, it was something like 3:30am. I went to bed with no memory of what I wrote whatsoever. Reading it a couple of days later was a delight. It wasn't bad). So if I do end up streaming it, I probably won't be participating in the chat very much, which sort of defeats the purpose.
Still, maybe I'll give it a shot. It might be a good time for my friends, at least, to be able to hangout in the chat room while I work. The idea of friends being close, even in the digital space, is actually quite comforting. Maybe they won't mind that I'm writing instead of paying attention to them.
Anyway, I have to go. I have to finish my coffee and get things set up for my livestream today.
