Rabbit Holes and Other Shiny Things

Every once in a while I get curious about my family history. Lately some friends have been talking about genealogy and their family histories and I’m afraid I’m about to go down the ancestry.com rabbit hole. I’m trying to resist, at least until this month is over, but I made the mistake of opening the website this evening and playing around a bit and…

Well, let’s just say that I can resist everything except temptation.

Fortunately, I have to get up early for work tomorrow morning so I won’t be diving in any deeper tonight as I have a lot of work to do between now and bedtime.

Writing-wise I’ve made a tiny bit of progress, but not much. Still, any forward progress is good, right? I wonder if I can write 20,000 words on Sunday to get caught up?  I could take my laptop with me tomorrow and do some writing at work as there’s a lot of down time, but I do have a notebook in my crochet bag that I can use to hand write for hieroglyphic transcription later. And I know from experience that I’m unlikely to use my laptop if I take it, so I think it’s going to stay home.

I’ve been fending off a new-ish plot bunny that is so far nothing more than a title, but the pushy little thing is growing fast. And another new plot bunny popped in this evening based on a comment that a friend made. (I’m thinking it may go Steampunk, whereas the first one is probably going to be urban fantasy or paranormal. Maybe.)

I don’t have time for this! Just keeping up with my ever-changing work schedule is a full time job. (The joys of agency work – my schedule for this past week changed at least four or five times and it’s already had two changes for next week.)
