The many levels and intensities of confusion. This is something I went through this last weekend and is the reason I missed my Row80 update on Sunday. I am making up for it today. Unfortunately, it will bump the intended post on Chocolate out another week. So sorry chocolate lovers. 🙁
Why confusion you ask? Well, here’s the thing – I adore blogging for you all. I wouldn’t change this experience for the world, but something needs to change. I need more time for my book as I don’t get enough now and also a little creative “me” time to recharge my batteries. That means spending less time blogging. After all, you want me to turn out the best possible book I can, don’t you?! Plus, my kids like to see me every once and awhile. The confusion was trying to figure all this out and how it would work.
What does this mean for you? It means the posts I put out will have to be less in-depth. Immortal Mondays especially. If you can wait it out with me, I have a lot of stories in my head so there is potential for a lot of books. I just need to get them written. So… on with the update.
Who loves movies? I saw two this weekend! It has been a long time since I’ve seen two movies in one weekend. I used to do that sort of stuff all the time (back when I worked at a movie theater –story for another day).
Saturday night was date night with hubby and it had us sitting comfortably at Muvico (love that theater) for a night showing of Chronicle.
We both found this movie entertaining with moments of drag. But, hey! It’s a chronicle. You know, found footage film. It’s not advertised as an action flick. We both gave it a thumbs up.
On Sunday my eldest and I caught Ghost Rider: Spirits Of Vengeance in 3D, also and Muvico. Did I tell you why I love this theater? Because I can reserve our seats and show up at the last minute if I want. I hate lines and waiting. A movie experience with him is something else. He educated me on all kinds of things and characters during the movie and previews. He is one bright boy.
If you love action, fire (fire, fire!), and a high body count, then this movie is for you. My son says it is EPIC! I asked him he would like to review action flicks for the blog on a scale of one to five Yoda heads (May the Force be with you), but he wasn’t interested. I’ll give you this, there isn’t a dull moment.
At home I watched via Netflix the AMAZING film Secretariat. Wow, did I love that film! I watched it alone, but still give it two enthusiastic thumbs up. If you haven’t seen it, rent it!
Have you seen any films that you place on the “Must See” list that I should make time for?
❤ Write forward everyday: No
❤Edit book one of my WIP: I turned 6 chapters into 5 by cutting one chapter out completely. But I only cut 1669 words at this point as I had to weave in important material lost from the cut chapter and other material I realized (now in book 3) needs to be introduced a little earlier in the story. I continue to move forward in the editing process. Hopefully faster from this point forward. I set up Scrivener the other night and am importing the newly edited chapter in as I go.
❤ Complete & fully participate in Bob Mayer’s Write It Forward Workshop. Current!
❤ Blog 3x a week, plus one Row80 update. Missed my Sunday Row update but had 3 blogs last week and already have the 3 for this week done.
❤ Comment on/visit/retweet at least 12 blogs a week. Ah yea, and then some. Sorry if I missed you. Chances are good I was on your site and didn’t comment though.
❤ Discover at least 1 new blog a week. Discovered some beauties, but they wouldn’t know it because they are on blogger and it wouldn’t let me comment. 🙁
❤ Read 2 new books and finish the one I am on by the end of the 80 days. Finished the one I was on. FINALLY – YAY! Change of schedule should allow for some reading time now. 🙂
❤ Exercise 3x a week: This might sound crazy, but I’ve been getting up at 5:30 most mornings to fit in a workout. Don’t like what I see happening around the belly. NO!
❤ Make more time for the family – Yes, I really it this weekend. 🙂
How are you doing? Rocking and Rolling or struggling to get by? I hit a bad batch on the home front, stepped back, re-evaluated with my partner in crime (Hubs) and think I have a new plan that works. We will soon see going forward. He will keep me in check. 😉
Since I got off kilter with my Row80 updates, I’ll see you for the next update on March 3rd. Until then Row teamsters. 🙂
Thank you for stopping by. I always appreciate your time and comments.
