Last night I decided to take my beads to the game. My current project isn't super-portable, but I took it anyway. I knew I'd have some downtime while the guys goofed off, and I've really wanted to finish that rivoli project that I started before the move. I got a bit of work done on it -- finished the other half of the spiral rope. But then I reached the part where I need to fringe it, and I hit a problem.
You see, when I did the first half, I figured I'd be doing the second half soon thereafter. You know, maybe a few days between, a week at most if things got busy. I did not count on over a month! And I didn't write anything down. So I'm going to have to take a close look at the fringe and count how many beads I used. Definitely not something I want to do while half a dozen guys are talking and gaming around me. So I'll probably do that tonight or tomorrow.
I've been writing, too. I did some on Monday and Tuesday. I almost started writing last night after the game, but I felt like I'd probably be up until 5am if I did. I should really be rotating my sleep schedule to fall asleep earlier, since I'll need to get up in the mornings for Comic Con... but whenever I write, I start to stay up later and later. I'm going to go do some writing now, and see if I can get it out of my system early in the day and maybe fall asleep at a decent hour. I must be bright and chipper for the convention!
Anyway, writing is awesome. I'm really excited about how my book is shaping up. I feel like the characters and situations are much better developed than they were in any of my previous attempts to write this story. This might actually go somewhere.
