Sick day…

So, I did not have a computer all day – the longest I have ever been without one in forever. So needless to say nothing got written or edited.

But I am also feeling really sick, so I doubt my brain would have let me do any work. Hopefully this weekend! I did get quite a bit of work done on FtLP yesterday ย and I think I finally have the cover somewhere that I want it… So look for the book at the beginning of September!

I guess the nice thing about being sick is I’m not expected to do anything so I was able to curl up on the sofa, wrapped in a blanket with my kindle all day long. I got a new book that I am just glued to! I think it will be my book recommendation on Monday so I won’t say what it is ๐Ÿ˜‰

Nothing else to note as of now. Hopefully tomorrow I will feel a little more alive! Really want to get a haircut this weekend – oh and might be getting a new job and be able to work with my boyfriend!

Author interview! Check it out! :)

Author Steffany Martin is here! ๐Ÿ™‚.

The lovely Trish Marie Dawson interviewed me on her blog today! Check it out ๐Ÿ™‚

Also check out the books she’s written if you haven’t already. If you don’t remember I recommended her book Dying to Forget a couple weeks ago!

 

I don’t understand why my brain feels the need to persecute me.

So lately my insomnia has been staying away fairly well, but now I don’t want to sleep because every time I do I have some sort of nightmare or just insane, disgusting feeling dream.

I woke up and got out of bed this morning, but I was so tired from my bad dream that I went right back to bed. Somehow I fell asleep for two more hours and in that span of time had yet another disgusting dream.

I used to love to dream, but then those were good dreams and I forgot them right when I woke up. These dreams that I have now haunt me the entire day. I can remember every tiny detail about it. And nothing has changed that would prompt a surge of these dreams.

So, why my stupid brain, do you have to make sleeping such a horrible experience for me? First you don’t let me sleep till I become so exhausted that I drop dead. Now you let me sleep, but it is not restful and you fill my day with horrible, dark auras…

 

On the side, my cats are like scared or intrigued or something of ice cubes. They just sit there for hours, staring at them like they’re some strange life form.

 

Ah, Wednesday

The week is half over! And that means that it will be a holiday weekend!

And I’m not going to do anything whatsoever! Well, maybe. I know for sure there won’t be any mini-vacation or leaving town, at most maybe go to the movies. Plus I will try to take that time to complete Finding the Lost Princess and maybe work on some other writing. I really want to go back to Albino Demon but the other half of my brain doesn’t want to think about it.

I need to get some editing done today. And I guess I’m not meant to be gaming since it just keeps freezing on me everytime I try to play… Guess I’m supposed to be on here, doing what I’m supposed to be doing.

Alrighty then, till later!

 

 

Dirty Little Secret.

I am a Coke addict ๐Ÿ˜‰

That’s Coca-Cola.

I drink it like water.

Ha, who am I kidding. I drink it way more than water.

Yes, I know it’s super unhealthy and probably destroying my stomach, but it tastes so good that I can’t help it. I’ve been trying to not drink it quite as much. If I try to go a day without it I get horrible migraines so I know I am addicted (at least to caffeine).

Well, at least it is pretty much the only bad habit that I can think of that I haven’t given up. Things could be worse.

So why am I even talking about this? Um… cause I usually get 2 liters and they never taste as good as canned and I just got 12 packs tonight because they were on a really good sale and I’m just sitting here drinking an ice cold can of Coke :p

And I will close this for now before I go into a rant about the idiocy of politics (in the USA). Ugh, I am so sick of it all.

Goodnight everyone.

 

The not Monday book recommendation.

So since I failed to make my weekly Monday recommendation, here it is.

This time I recommend The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien.

I don’t know where to begin. This book is the most amazing thing I have ever read.

Now I was a fan before the movies ever came out – and I think that the movies were a very good take on them, so I’m looking forward to seeing the Hobbit this December!

Back to the book. Why do I love it? Why is it my all-time favorite book? Because it has everything and more that you could ever want in a story. It is an epic masterpiece and I don’t think that you can find any fantasy book that hasn’t been somewhat inspired by it. (And don’t be an idiot and agree with the even more idiotic people that think that LotR stole ideas from Harry Potter. LotR was published before Rowling was even born.)

The world is so vivid you can feel like you’re there. The characters you fall in love with – even the secondary ones that aren’t in it all that much. It keeps you reading and reading and reading. Once it’s over you wish that it had gone on forever. It’s just one of those books that makes an impact on you. It draws you in, keeps you hooked and wanting more, causes you to make such an emotional investment that it feels like a part of you is gone when it’s all over.

Sure it’s very long, and the reading level is daunting to some people that want an easy read; but if there’s one book in the entire world anyone needs to read before they die, this is it.

Since most of you have at least heard of it, if not seen the movies, I shan’t go into details about book plot, characters, etc. But there is so much more in the books that they left out of ย the movies so don’t think that you know the whole story if you’ve only seen the movie.

Also, pretty much anything by Tolkien is awesome! The Hobbit is great if you want a shorter, easier, and fun read that will provide more background info for LotR. I’ve never been a big fan of dwarves so I think that’s why I don’t enjoy it quite as much. Smaug the dragon is wonderful though.

The Silmarillion, Book of Lost Tales, etc… those are all the background stories for Middle Earth and can be very interesting, though sometimes confusing to keep track of. My advice is to read LotR first and then undertake reading those if you love it enough and want to know about the creation and how the rings were even formed and everything else. There’s some pretty fun stories and amazing characters in those as well.

And I shall wrap this up before I go on and on and on.

Cheers!

Where did yesterday go?

I don’t know what happened yesterday. It just disappeared. I really don’t think that there was a Monday. Perhaps I fell in a time warp and it transported my to today.

Well, since yesterday was Monday and I wasn’t on here, that of course means I didn’t do my Monday book recommendation. Don’t worry, I’ll do it today. Later.

I wish I could say that I lost the day because I was so busy editing… but that’s not the case. Writing? No, once more. What did I do? Well… I vaguely recall doing some laundry and playing with bubbles with the kitties – they love chasing bubbles around the house. The rest of my day was consumed in gaming… I know, I shouldn’t have been on there almost all day long, but it was so easy to lose track of the time. Especially when it’s a game I’ve been wanting to play for so very, very long.

Well, I am going to be more productive today. I need to do some cleaning and I’m thinking about cooking “Balrog” wings for supper and possibly cookies. My boyfriend is sick and he keeps begging for chocolate chip cookies (I hate them so I don’t enjoy making them – I know I’m weird.) Of course he’s playing the sick card, so I’ll probably cave in a cook some for him.

I doubt I’ll get any writing done… I can feel my brain lock up at the thought. I don’t know what it is, I’ve just been so scatter brained when it comes to writing/editing.

Plus, I’m trying to think about that giveaway. Thinking if I want to add anything for the winner – thinking something along the lines of bookmark etc.

Alright, I’m getting off of here. Need to get things done.
