laugh and promise no regrets  

don’t ever skip your dreams
put them away to forget
cherish every moment given
laugh and promise no regrets

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! Hope you all had a lovely day.

We headed out to San Leandro and took my parents out for an early dinner at Black Angus. Good food! Lots of people. The husband made the reservations on his phone. Technology rocks!


Game of Thrones – I’ve read the books and some of the action in the series has deviated from the written word but I have mostly liked the changes made. The stories seem tighter even with all the characters. And since I have read the books, I’m dreading the end of this season because it’s building up to… well… no, I won’t spoil it. Suffice to say NO CHARACTER IS SAFE!

I’m glad the network shows are winding down this month. I seriously wish the hour-long shows I like to watch aired shorter seasons. It’s a freakin’ chore wanting to watch so many shows. LOL And there’s already talk about new series pick ups for next season and for some reason I’m actually excited about a couple of them. LOL I’ll tell you now, I am going to watch Karl Urban’s show Almost Human because 1) it’s Karl Urban and 2) I am apparently meant to watch anything he does. LOL So the show had better be good!

Strike Back – I watched a promo online for SB and I so want the new season to start NOW. I need my Stapleton/Winchester fix. I guess I’ll feed my addiction by re-watching the SB US seasons 1 and 2…

I don’t know why I can’t finish a story outside of National Novel Writing Month. Why can’t I use that fervor the rest of the year? How is it that my inspiration slowly freezes until it’s almost a struggle to let the words flow? Am I too distracted by my online wandering? Has my inherent laziness paralyzed my creativity outside of that fury of November writing?

I happened upon the beginnngs of two Temple stories, both of which actually caught my attention as I read them. I thought to myself, “Wow, did I really write this?” And then I cursed myself when they abruptly ended. Alas.

I finished that novel sized fanfic of mine a little over a month ago and have had one helluva time trying to get motivated to work on anything else.

I'd started a fairly small one-shot a while back and forced myself to work on it this weekend (a daunting scene had me stalled) while the hubs was away. The words flowed comfortably and I was able to finish and send it off to my beta Saturday. Go, me!

I just don't quite understand though how, even when I have something outlined or clear in my head, that the words flow with ease sometimes and not - at - all at others. I get distracted so much more easily than I used to also, hence the waiting for hubby to go away. His mere waking presence in the house never used to be a problem ??

And now I'm working on a little coda for an ep that my beta had started, had also gotten stalled on, and asked me to work on. The words flowed initially today but now they are grinding again. And when they grind, I'm not having fun and, when I'm not having fun I tend to back away. I'm gonna keep pushing though. Hell, this piece will only be about 3 or 4,000 words. I'm not gonna give up... though I may end up sleeping on it before I finish tomorrow night. With luck.

I seem to think of cool things to write when I can't, like when I'm at work. Always when I'm at work! LOL

Sometimes I try not to force my writing but then I get antsy and want to write and then I just sit here and stare at the blank computer monitor. Frustrating!

I've tried writing when the hubby is home and when he isn't home and there's no logic to my comfort zone. Bah! But we must keep going because stopping just turns the brain to goo...
