I was genuinely attempting National Novel Writing Month this year with a brand new idea involving a steampunk version of the Lohengrin legend.  Then, a freak accident occurring exactly two weeks ago landed me in the Emergency Room with a broken ankle.  I’ve gotten to wear a cam boot for the better part of two weeks and out of work.  I gave up on Nano with the overwhelming depression coupled with the staggering feeling of being useless.  I’ve spent the time idling away on Internet surfing, moping, and video games.

Meanwhile, I have my second story for my Creative Writing class due and I am hurriedly trying to finish it as well as trying to find a way to solve the initial problems.  Though, this third attempt gave me two previous story ideas I might try at a later day.  But it always fun to dapple in one’s own fantasy world, is it not?

The poetry I mentioned posting is at a standstill.  I don’t have the energy or the will to format it properly.  I’m feeling itchy and uncomfortable and annoyed but such is the way when I am in a rut.

My foot hurts me constantly and I just want to go back to work.  But I fear that I won’t be able to for longer than expected.

But I’ve been writing, whatever little progress it is.  On my main project, I’ve reached over 46,000 words which I realize isn’t much when you think to pass Nano you have to reach 50,000.  But I am determined, as always.

Because I am nonsensically ambitious, and because Lulu was hosting a special for 100 free mini business cards at moo.com, I am getting business minicards, with six different designs.  It’s not much, but it’s pretty nifty, in my opinion, for free.  Only paid five dollars for shipping.

Now, it just takes forever for them to arrive.  I’ve got two weeks, I believe?

But, I’ve got a new camera.  So I’m hoping that I’ll be able to go on this planned photoshoot to design the cover for my fantasy book project.  Perhaps that is ambitious of me as well.  Knowing my luck and procrastination, though, she’ll probably be off to college for the semester before I finally have the time to do anything.

Meanwhile, I’m stuck in post-apocalyptia and unable to return to fantasy until I sort out a silly magic issue.  Also, have an article on Publishing Lingo, because I have an increasing headache that makes it difficult for everything else.
