November 10, 2018: Mixed Feelings

A chill is in the air this weekend. I haven’t been outside for a few days, yet I can feel the draft seep in when sitting near the kitchen window. Winter made an unannounced visit to remind autumn that yes, the dormant season is right around the corner. This time of year brings its blendContinue reading “November 10, 2018: Mixed Feelings”

November 9, 2018: No Change

It’s interesting to see how Trump is ramping up his fascist agenda. Since the MidTerm Elections, he’s barred a reporter from doing his job at the White House, and replaced the Attorney General with someone who’s focused on tampering the Muller investigation. Our own press secretary is shamelessly showing off tampered video of Jim Acosta.Continue reading “November 9, 2018: No Change”

November 8, 2018: Passing Time

I unexpectedly have lots of time at home this week. It’s these unexpected ‘time-off’ periods that make me value my ability to move about. Unfortunately, I can’t go anywhere at the moment. Yet I’m going a bit loopy staying in one room. So, I’m keeping busy with NaNoWriMo. I usually wait until the evening toContinue reading “November 8, 2018: Passing Time”

November 7, 2018: Elections & NaNoWriMo progress

Election Day 2018 is over. So emotional in many ways. I hope Beto O’ Rourke runs again for Texas in 2020. Many people are starting to pick up the chants ‘Beto for President’! We all know that the ball is in his court. My NaNoWriMo progress is coming along. I’m still unsure which direction myContinue reading “November 7, 2018: Elections & NaNoWriMo progress”

November 6, 2018: The fun with Book Crates…and remember to VOTE!!

I just received notice that my Book of the Month for November is being shipped out to me. Although my attention is on NaNoWriMo this month, I’m very much looking forward to receiving my book. It’s a novel by Liane Moriarty. I’m new to reading Moriarty’s work, so I’m going to enjoy reading some newContinue reading “November 6, 2018: The fun with Book Crates…and remember to VOTE!!”

November 5, 2018: Write-Up of my NaNoWriMo Progress, Day 4

I’ve completed 4 days of NaNoWriMo. I’m pleasantly surprised that I’ve gotten this far! Of course I have a lonh way to go with my writing, and I’m not sure where my story is going. I’m having fun writing it though. I need to be wary of blood sugar lows impeding with my writing. LastContinue reading “November 5, 2018: Write-Up of my NaNoWriMo Progress, Day 4”

November 4, 2018: Planning

Today ends ‘Daylight Savings’ time, or that period when it gets darker mich earlier. Aside from gaining that extra hour of sleep, there isn’t much that changes. As I get older, what my grandfather always shares with me about this day is true: people re-enter their daily routine, nothing changes. For myself, I continue toContinue reading “November 4, 2018: Planning”

November 3, 2018: NaNoWriMo goal

So relieved for the weekend! This month I took on a new writing activity, so it calls for managing my time more productively. I still can’t believe that I took on a third writing activity, yet I feel like I’m doing great with maintaining this journal for 2018, and my poetry blog. Having another writingContinue reading “November 3, 2018: NaNoWriMo goal”

November 2, 2018: Important Decision

In a few days, it will be Election Day. We’re halfway through the presidential term, so we can’t vote in a new one (unfortunately)! We can elect the people that will control both the Congress and Senate. This is an important decision, since the fate of progressive laws is on the line. Sadly, there isContinue reading “November 2, 2018: Important Decision”

November 1, 2018: Books and Family Celebrations

Halloween is over, yet it doesn’t mean that the ‘spooky’ theme needs to be put away. I’m one of those people who sticks to eccentric, dark things no matter the time of year. Some of the new books out there sounds amazing to explore really soon. Right now I’m reading ‘After the Quake’ by MurakamiContinue reading “November 1, 2018: Books and Family Celebrations”
