This weekend was a bust. I spent all of Saturday asleep in bed. Or coughing. Mostly sleeping, though, which is preferable. It was almost the same Sunday, but I forced myself out of bed in the afternoon to make it (late) to the double book launch for two anthologies - We Shall Be Monsters and Over the Rainbow - by Renaissance Press. A goodly number of people went, and I was able to chat and catch up with a couple. I mostly spent the event with my god-daughter, who is an absolute delight.
Immediately following, I spent a short time at a going away event. I didn't last very long, being already exhausted. I stayed just long enough to eat my first and only meal of the day before giving up on trying to function and heading home.
I had an idea about how to improve the painting I had given up on last weekend, and was hoping for the energy to get stuck on that this weekend, but alas... I was sleeping. I'll try for next weekend. I'm running out of time and I need to get this one done before Ottawa ComicCon.
Also, because of my sleeping and being generally miserable last week, I got absolutely no writing done. I did, however, manage to binge enough Merlin to finish the series and now I'm sad. I really do love that dorky show, and I'm sad to see it end. Also, weirdly, there was a Merlin themed YouTube video that popped into my feed that was uploaded just Saturday, so I guess I'm not the only one rewatching the series (or perhaps discovering it for the first time) and really loving it.
However, the lack of routine has absolutely screwed with me. I'm one of those terrible people that needs a rigid routine and a whole lot of "me time" in order to function properly. When something disturbs that routine, it can wreck my entire life for a little bit. Being without a routine this past week was not a good time. It wasn't just the nasty cold. I'm glad to be back at some sort of routine today.
I shall return to writing tomorrow. Today, it's going back over what I've written the last time to catch my brain up again. I'm hopeful that, despite not writing at all last week, I can finish this manuscript by the end of May. Lordy do I want to be finished this manuscript soon!
Right, I'm off to do stuff. I hope you all had a great weekend and have a fantastic day today.
