#ROW80 Check-in 3/12/17

It’s ROW80 time again!

I’ve been mostly brain dead. I think I really needed a break, I think. Come April I’ll be doing Ever Touched’s final copyedits, and getting it ready for release. So I’m taking time now to rest and relax and do things I won’t be able to do later (Guild Wars, for an example). I’ve wanted to write a little, but nothing’s really setting me on fire at the moment.

Daylight Saving Time is kicking my butt. #abolishDST

So, the rundown:

Ever Touched cover – In progress. Waiting on feedback.

Blurb – Also in progress.

Water – Every day except one.

Guild Wars – Finally completed the mission that was giving me fits. Working on the next. It’s much more challenging. I’ve been logging a lot of time in there as of late.

Weight – Not really sure, as I haven’t weighed myself this week.

Eczema/psoriasis – Not bad this week at all. Of course, I’ve been taking cold showers, which sucks, but keeps the itching down. Actually, I had a rough night last night with my feet itching again. Seriously?!

Exercise – Other than cleaning, nothing. Bad Erin, no cookie!

Chocolate consumption: Gluten free brownies, hot chocolate, Snickerdoodles (not chocolate, but there you have it). Chocolate cupcakes!


#ROW80 Check-in the Eighteenth

Doing much, much better with the Rewrite. I finally got to the scene where everything blows up. So now everything goes downhill from there (*evil grin*). I’m feeling pretty good about it. I’ve hit 31k, just 4k shy of my 35k goal. I can do this!

On the photography front, I’ve taken a look at both my cameras (one is a high-end digital point & shoot and the other is a DSLR which cost a fortune) and both are capable of doing what I need them to do for HDR photos. The DSLR would be ideal because it can do something called auto bracketing (taking several different exposures of the same picture) whereas with the other one, I’d have to manually set it up. So that’s good news. I wanted to do a few test shots, but alas, I just didn’t have the time.

Overall, I’m feeling better. My back is still a problem, but I took some meds last night and they helped. I’m not as exhausted, but with the time change, I do feel a bit off kilter as I do every year. It’s funny — a lot of people say there’s no such thing as feeling poopy after the time change, but I do, even when I go to bed an hour early to compensate. Then again, I have fibromyalgia which makes me more prone to issues with sleep anyway. But, I’m glad to be feeling better.

Soulfire hasn’t happened yet. Got too deeply involved in the Rewrite, and that is the priority. Le sigh.

Onward to stats!
