Halloween Cat

A Wandering Fool

I'm going through those "blahs" again. The next agent I was looking at on my list asks for the complete manuscript - oops. I've been making so many changes to it based on beta readers' comments I no longer seem to HAVE a complete manuscript, just those solid "first three chapters" I've been farming out. So I have to diligently put everything back together, with chapter headings (which were missing before), making sure I don't lose the formating, which means working exclusively in Word, which means only on the laptop, since I still haven't installed Word on my desktop (although I suppose I could, really, now that I have a real copy... why haven't I, again?).

In general, I seem to have more of those self-doubting days; this isn't new, but it's bothersome, and I can't stand that every time I get on the emotional, moody rollercoaster, I want to post in my journal about it (of course, that's what a journal is FOR, but these days, heck, anyone can read it!). I don't want to friends-lock everything, because how would one get more friends? And then, of course, I tell myself it's quality, not quantity, blah blah blah.

I wish someone wanted to read my writing. (There! I said it! *whimper*)

And now for something completely different.

I have almost finished reading The Golden Compass. Very cool book. Now I understand the whole daemon thang (see Lutheus). I do have to admit I like starting a series AFTER it's all finished, so I don't have to wait for the next book, I just have to close one and move on to the next (although I couldn't find the copies I know rahirah owns, so I bought new ones... no big, if we find the others, one can be donated).

And new meme, on a similar sort of topic:

I like it.

I have realized where I have come in my life, to looking at items I need/desire and having come from "I can't afford that" to "I really shouldn't buy that." It's a very nice feeling to be able to say I can't get it not because I don't have the money, but because I don't actually want it enough to spend that money on it.

I really need to get back to the gym. I haven't gone in ages (not counting a few workouts in Vegas) - before vacation because of overtime, and now simply because I can't seem to get out of bed.

Massage this evening. Mmmmmmm....
