If we were having coffee I’d tell you that I’ve been having some strange dreams lately. Angry dreams that leave me feeling unsettled. I’m going to blame it on the fact that I’ve had to spend the better part of the week dealing with ants that have been getting into my room, my brand new room. Stupid ants.
I hate angry dreams, especially ones that are very real. I get this whole run of emotions in my sleep and it’s just exhausting.
I’ve also been fighting a cold, which is leaving me very foggy headed. It makes focusing on anything pretty challenging. So coffee today is going to be a bit short, I need to go back to bed to keep on the road of recovery.
What else… I ended up signing up for the A to Z blogging challenge in April. I have an idea for a general theme for the month, and am looking forward to it. I also am working on my plans for the next party that Taliana will be hosting, which will be the week at the end of March and start of April. I’ll have more information about it soon.
I’ve also been working a bit on Disparate Threads, started updating again, and have a few scenes in the wings. It’s been good to get back to it (slow moving though I may be), and I’ve been working on my novel. The thing I’ve been stumbling over is describing people — I have always been terrible at it and it keeps tripping me up. I’m trying to write character sketches for each of the primary characters in the story and their physical descriptions are challenging me. Wish I could figure out why, or, more importantly, how to get past that so I can get some descriptions going. I have them in my mind, I know what many of them look like, but describing things like skin tone, face structure, body builds… those just are challenging for me.
Time for a nap soon, but first, what have you been up to this week?
