And this is waaaaay late in posting. Sorry. I had an unexpected family emergency and it's taken a week to try to get to a breathing point. And it seems it's going to shoot June in the kester before it even starts.
So...seven days into the month and I hadn't wrote much of anything. I was exhausted. Beyond exhausted, thanks to allergies. I even found myself napping at lunch hour. Yeah, not me. I didn't get much reading in either.
I seem to be at a lack for words this past month, with being so exhausted I can't seem to focus. But the brain wasn't completely idle...started dreaming up new worlds.
But, on the 4th - Saturday during my down time starring at the television like a blob on the couch - I was watching the H2 channel. A History channel, I have no idea who had it one but it was on when I turned tv on. Anyway, there was a show about the oceans. Icebergs melting, whirlpools, images under water with the mountain ranges and so on and so on. A new world idea started to hit me. One I started noting and forming in my mind's eye. I wrote 334 hasty words of a short happening in this world. There is lots of worldly myth that needs to be laid out and created here as I think I like the idea of this world and people. BUT! Yes, this is a big but. I don't have a story for the world yet. So, I continue to create the world, hoping something will spark for a story line. I think one might be forming...we'll see as I create the world. ;)
I did manage to get a few words squeaked out. Okay, so I'm a slacker, the total I got... 637. *sigh* I know disgraceful. I left May with HIGH hopes for June. I have lots I want to get done. After Balticon, I had the feel for creativity. Had the first day all planned out, I'd finish cleaning, read the remaining forty pages of a current read, then dive into my novella story. I didn't even get the cleaning done before I got that call we all dread. So June is seeming to be a bust for words as well. *sigh* We'll see, but I'm thinking not much will come.
Jackie is swamped with school. Sorry, she wasn't able to post this time around.
