Midweek #ROW80 Check-In

After several days of house/dog sitting for my in laws, we are HOME.  As soon as I brought the girls in, Callie went and curled up on her spot on the sofa (she’s not allowed on the furniture at the in laws’), Daisy got laid down on her bed, and I sat down in my chair, and there was a collective AAAAAAAAAH.  Last night I got to SLEEP IN MAH BED.  GLORY HALLELUIA!  It was fabulous.  I had absolutely no desire to get out of bed this morning because I was SO COMFY.  My bed…

30846-its-so-fluffy-gif-9hWgI am the Princess and the Pea.  What of it?  But get out of bed I did, in order to work out for the first time since Friday.  We’re not going anywhere or doing anything any time soon (that I can think of), so maybe I can FINALLY get back into a routine.  PLEASE.  Exercise.  I needs it.  I feel puffy and kind of weak.  Not like, sick weak, just…need to move.  Plus my new vintage style bikini came in yesterday and I feel a strong need to tone up…everything.

The writing has been going well.  I’ve been in splice mode the last few days, taking the first draft and pulling out what can still be used, making notes about what needs to be inserted or changed.   Some of what I thought would be able to stay needs to be rewritten.  Other stuff I thought needed to change can actually stay with minimal modification.  Crazy how that works.   I have hopes of getting through PP1 by end of the week, which would be pretty fabulous.

I’ve been making notes on a new plot bunny.  I know, what else is knew.  This is another steampunk idea, spawned from some of what I’ve been watching lately.  There might or might not be mummies involved.  :gives the shifty eyes:  Susan has been begging me to come play with her in Steamworld.  She’s a bad influence and an enabler.  She also pointed me toward a sale on Fractal Mapper ($10 as of the time of writing), this mapping software that’s usually used for RPGs.  I have a few other ideas for it, but you’ll have to wait for those. 😀

  1. You couldn’t have posted Fractal Mapper yesterday when I was looking for/buying my husband’s father’s day gift? 😉

    And I want to encourage playing with that steampunk plot bunny and raising it into a full grown awesome story, because STEAMPUNK!

    1. I have four steampunk bunnies in various stages of infancy. It’ll happen one of these days…But a lot of worldbuilding goes into that, so I kind of work on those in fits and spurts while I’m writing in my other more established stuff.

  2. I know what you mean about your own bed:) best bit of coming home – steam punk I haven’t read – I don’t think – but I like the stuff that goes with it – all those carvings, machines, decorations etc – all best for toning up:)

  3. Steampunk bunnies… hmm. My own steampunk corms are like behemoths, heavy of paw and fiery of breath. But the biggie – the mega monster – is coming together like filaments of wire drawn from under a second skin. First off though I have four more to write, with goats.
    Good luck with the edits.

Penny for your thoughts...
