five-day headache

Just when I think it’s not going to happen today, it happens. It’s not a headache that makes me want to scream and claw my eyes out or anything; it’s just kind of dull and there, mainly on the left side. My mom told me to call the doc if it keeps happening, and I believe I’ll be calling the doc tomorrow morning.

On the writing front, for ROW80: my goals were up and down this time, everything from writing 5 minutes a day to doing NaNoWriMo in November, and a few places in between. Nothing has stuck this time around. It took hearing of Anne McCaffrey‘s death to get me writing again this fall, and I’ve written about 5K words in the past few weeks. I don’t think they’re brilliant, and who knows if they’ll go anywhere, but the point is that I’m writing again.

I think that I may not write tonight, however; though I’ve taken the bulbs out of the light above my head and turned down the brightness and contrast on my three computer monitors, my headache is slowly increasing. Definitely time to call the doc tomorrow.  *sigh*



ROW80 post of updatedness

Though there’s not really anything to update. Life is quite hectic right now. I probably shouldn’t have signed up for this…but I think I was hoping for a reason to find some writing time–any writing time. Any at all. Hasn’t happened yet.

I haven’t even set a goal for Round 4 yet, other than writing every day, which will work its way into NaNoWriMo in November. Wow…not sure how that’s gonna happen, either, except that the coffee shop I’m helping to construct/paint/polyurethane wooden counters/scrape old carpet glue off the floors/move and carry garbage for should be open by the end of October at the latest. Hopefully then I’ll be able to get some sleep as well.

Words of encouragement? Anyone? *echo*


Round of Words in 80 Days – Round 4, here I come!

I skipped round three, because I didn’t get anything done. Things have changed in my life since then, and NaNoWriMo is coming up, so it’s time to get going.

And I’m thinking of dumping my Facebook page because it’s sucking my time a lot like Twitter did earlier this year.

Thoughts on that? Don’t know who will look at this…but I would appreciate input from other busy people if you have any. 🙂
