Monday Maybes

I had a post all ready to go on Friday but my internet never came up. It’s down as I’m writing this between bus runs, but I’m hoping it will be up when I get home this evening so I can actually post it.

(It was up for a while yesterday so I finished scheduling my Wednesday Words, Rainbow Snippets, and Snippet Sunday posts for the month, and got started on the Rainbow Snippet blog hop before it went down.)

Yesterday morning I had a town cop knocking on my door. Apparently they’d received a 911 hang up call from my phone line. The same phone line that I can’t get internet through. And which doesn’t have a phone attached to it. He said they get a lot of calls like that when it rains. Seems to me that Windstream needs to do some upgrading or something…

I have three weekdays off in the first week of April and I’m going to have to get a tech out here on one of those days to fix the problem with my internet. (They insist that there needs to be someone home because he’ll have to come inside. Um… I told them that there’s only a problem when it rains, and I’m pretty sure I’d have noticed if it rained in the house, so I don’t know why they think he’ll have to come inside, but whatever.)

Anyhow, that gives me a week to make the front room and my bedroom not look like the aftermath of a medley of natural disasters. I’m not quite sure where to start… Maybe I should write an outline?

Speaking of outlines, writing one for Song and Shadow might not be a bad idea. And I should probably detail the last bit of Hedge House before Camp starts as well.

Why is that? Well, it’s because I announced my Camp project on the NaNoWriMo website: 25,000 words on both Song and Shadow and Hedge House. I’m still not sure that it’s going to take that many words to finish Hedge House but if it doesn’t I’ll just add whatever’s left of that 25k to the goal to Song and Shadow.

Unless I change my mind between now and Thursday.

I Lost a Week

I know that last weekend we all lost an hour’s sleep, but I seem to have lost an entire week. Somehow I didn’t realize that Monday was Monday until sometime late Tuesday, which is why there was no blog post on the Monday that I forgot was Monday.

Actually, I wouldn’t mind losing this past week.

Between a toilet that needs to be replaced (happening Monday), an ever-changing work schedule (which is looking to be just as much “fun” next week), and an internet that is up for a few seconds, down for several minutes, up for a few seconds, down for several minutes (and an ISP that is staffed by idiots), I am so done.

On the other hand, I kind of can’t wait to see what the coming week brings.

And if I have no internet this weekend I’ll be more productive with writing and editing and crocheting. And with deep cleaning the bathroom.

(Eternal optimist, I am.)

I did a quick re-read of what I have written for Hedge House. Lots of plot holes and things to go back and add to it, and it needs to be finished, but for my first foray into present day urban fantasy/paranormal I think it’s not too too bad. At least, I don’t hate it.

Other than that, I haven’t done much with writing and editing this past week. I have Book One of The Academy of the Accord in my car, along with the binder that will be the concordance, but I need to spread out to work on those and I feel guilty hanging out at Starbuck’s or Panera when they are limiting seating due to Covid and social distancing guidelines, so they’ve just been hanging out in my back seat for the past week.

I’m going to hope that my internet holds long enough to get this posted. It’s been stable for about the last half hour (a new record for the night! thirty minutes vs thirty seconds!)
