Some weekends leave you refreshed, some weekends leave you ambitious, and some weekends leave you feeling like a freight train hit you. Which one did you all have? Personally, I'm somewhere between freight train and refreshed. There were moments of refreshment, and moment of train wreck, however, no moments of ambition. Ah well.

So, it's a new week and there's new things to be amazing about. Big Buddy is coming up momentarily. We can still play with Sharpie's weekend challenge. And the pool party is going strong.

What are your plans to be amazing?

Freight train. Totally.

But, three-day weekends always seem to do that to me.

On the other hand, it was one less day at work.

I had dreaded back-to-work today, but so far it's going far better than I'd hoped! That's a win i'll take, for sure!

The horrible cant-sleep-can't-lay-down-oww-owww-owwwww headache that came absolutely out of nowhere at 4am? That I could have done without. Ah, well....

My plan for awesome is to finish at least one of the three WIPs I've got, and play with a couple of interactive story telling tools just for the fun of it. And maybe watch the rest of Sense8 and make that my pool party pick.

It was very rough to head in to work today. Thrilled it's going well for you today!

*hugs* about the headache.

OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH Sense8! Excellent! yay for words!!!

Freight train. Although right now, that's less about the weekend and more about the fact that I couldn't sleep for anything last night. Had to talk to my dad when I hadn't yet fallen asleep for any real amount of time before six, and he came back home midday to wake me up. So now I'm sitting in the classroom for my 4+ hour anthropology class, getting ready as I can be, but still on my first cup of coffee...today is gonna be a hard ride.

But also, in terms of writing most specifically, the weekend was full of ambition and has left me with quite a bit of it still.

*hugs* but awesome. AWESOME HUGS!

Freight train, absolutely. Let's just say it's easier to shop for clothes with my 15-year-old daughter than my husband. :D

Someone has sent me multiple prompts so I hope to WRITE ALL THE THINGS this week. I also need to figure out a fandom for the pool party. That's all the amazing I have in me this week.
Jul. 6th, 2015 07:58 pm (UTC)
That is a lot of amazing! YOU CAN DO THIS!!!

And the best bit of that shopping, is that it precipitates a paycheck!
Jul. 6th, 2015 08:09 pm (UTC)
YAY! Thank you! And I found a prompt that has helped me decide on my pool party fandom. SCORE!

AMEN to that. He started this morning and really likes it so far. *throws confetti*

Your Monday is looking up!
Jul. 6th, 2015 08:28 pm (UTC)
YES IT IS! And besides, we're on the downhill side of the day now, too. :)

Well, hmm, a roller coaster of sorts. Wedding on Saturday so there was all sorts of highs and lows and wrecks running through my brain. Just brings me to my favorite quote by an author. "In a weak moment, I have written a book" by Margaret Mitchell (author of Gone With The Wind), thus my LJ name so I suppose the lows and wrecks were an okay thing because I'm writing. :D

This week, I will catch up and finish all sorts of things! From rearranging in the house to my June Bingo card (I really liked my idea and must finish it!) to my Epic 90s McDanno Songfic list I must finish. Okay, so I won't finish this week and probably not this month because there's over 200 songs in the daggone thing, but things will be accomplished and at least 10 of those along with my bingo card will be finished by the end of this week. Oh, and hopefully this week I'll choose a new fandom to write. Right? Why is it so difficult for me? I must join the pool party!! LOL

And if it is in black and white, well, it must be done!

Oh, and btw, I must add something awesome from the weekend because my favorite NASCAR driver won the race last night in Daytona. :D He's in my icon I'm using here, although, he's got another number and another sponsor now.
Jul. 7th, 2015 02:38 pm (UTC)
It will be done! IT WILL!

Weddings and NASCAR and words!!!!

Work has been kind of manic. Good news is I'm finally getting back into writing, bad news is it isn't pool party, but I will get there!
Jul. 7th, 2015 07:04 am (UTC)
Good luck! :D

Freight train - I had a 13-hour international flight that landed on Sat and I'm still reeling from the jetlag while trying to keep up with my personal writing schedule. It's not going too well at the moment - but at least I had the foresight to build in failsafes.
Jul. 7th, 2015 02:39 pm (UTC)
A 13 hour flight even sounds exhausting. You will get through it! You will!

ACK! I didn't even comment and it's already Wednesday.

I haven't done enough pool party words - I was all afire on Saturday and got over 1000 in, but Sunday I was all bleh, I can't be bothered to write porn, and ended up finishing the double-drabble fic I started posting on Monday.

BUT! Tonight is a no-TV night (although Hubby and I may may find something recorded) so I hope to get more words in. I need to complete that pool party and I'd best do it now I finished the book or I'll lose momentum and never do it! (and to make matters worse now I want to slash Four/Nine at the end of it... or is that considered making matters better?)

Other than that, there are two birthday happenings this coming week and I have to ring someone's grandmother about one tonight before I forget! And I have at least one cake to decorate... but that can happen next week. ;-)
Jul. 8th, 2015 01:22 pm (UTC)
You can do it! :D

(I honestly thought you were talking about OMW birthdays for a moment there LOL and had to pause at the "ring someone's grandmother" part)
Jul. 8th, 2015 08:24 pm (UTC)
Thank you for the encouragement! I was very slack last night and didn't manage to do any words :( Sadly, the winter months aren't as conducive as they should be; I tend to snuggle up warm by the fire and watch TV or get distracted in other directions instead of adding words!

Ha! I can see why you'd think that, and I didn't exactly state where or who the birthdays were for! My daughter had her birthday a couple of weeks ago and is having her own party this weekend (she's 19), and my son turns 13 on the 20th and we're taking him and friends to the hot pools next week as it's school holidays here, so I had to ring and arrange one of them. ;-)

How'd you do? howdyoudo?howdyoudo?
Jul. 9th, 2015 08:44 pm (UTC)
Didn't actually get anywhere that night, but last night I FINISHED IT! I'm gonna run through it one more time and then hopefully post over the weekend. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
