Updates July 11-15


Thanks for the likes and follows. 

Last week there was no update. As usual, the work-life balance is a little off. I am giving myself a little grace cause a lot of things were going on with my family and me. There will be no details. I don’t have the strength for that kind of vulnerability. I will share some surface facts. I had a significant haircut. Once I get used to it, I will add a new glam picture. I thought I would change that picture every quarter but completely forgot about it when other plans went south.

In a previous update, I wrote about Camp Nanowrimo. The picture on the side is the wallpaper shared by the official site. It might be a fuzzy image on your device, I apologize. There were two different wallpapers. I set up the other one for the entry that should’ve been posted on July 4th. This one has a red dragon and the other a white dragon. Symbolic for history buffs and Arthurian lore experts and fans. The quest continues.

I have written about 4000 words on Connection Lost, which is roughly one and a half scenes. It sounds like a good start, however, I signed up the last week of June; Camp Nanowrimo has been counting the words since June 24th. They have me a week behind and that adds up to about 2000 words. Not sure how to feel about it. Fortunately, the story is going well. I wish I wrote more in the scene outline. I am not going to dwell too much on that. I will just keep writing like Dory keeps swimming.

This entry is posted late because these words were not with over the weekend. Most of it was typed up on the tablet and I didn’t have Grammarly or ProWritingAid to help me out. I can’t tell which service is better. I paid for ProWritingAid so it gives a bit more. I don’t have it in my budget for Grammarly yet.

I started to watch, the K-drama Alchemy of Souls. It is a supernatural fantasy drama about a mythical country in Korea. It is a weekly show and I like it. it can be frustrating but it is also nice not to binge everything. Another K-drama I will recommend is Tomorrow. It is another supernatural fantasy but it is contemporary and deals with important issues in mental health and Korean history. There was room for improvement but there always is; no story is perfect.

This week, the goal, of course, is to catch up on Nanowrimo. I need to figure out how much I am going to share about the stories I work on here. I have to do more thinking on the subject. There are reading goals but those are in a holding pattern. That is all for now.

I hope all of you are doing well and please remember to be kind.
