Random Ramblings, Writing

Stupid Reality!

My computer and I have been at war with one another!  I’ve lost the same chapter TWICE!  I don’t know why I think the “mute” button and the off button look alike, but I have decided to concede!  If you accidentally hit off instead of mute once, then spend an hour looking for the “magic spot” your chapter is hiding in, well…you chock it up as one of those things.  If you do it again, with the SAME chapter, and never find it again, no matter HOW many ways you search for it, one must conclude that it’s some sort of a sign from the angry writing gods!  It’s around here somewhere, but I’ll probably have to rewrite the entire thing before I find it.  I know me!  In the meantime, I’ve placed a neon sticker over the “off” button…just in case!  It’s like the laptop version of the detonate button.  😉

 Gilded Cage joined One Last Cigarette on my Wattpad account.  Neither one was written in my usual “writing voice.”  I might tweak Gilded Cage…or not.  Who knows?  It’s fun playing with short stories and throwing them out into the universe.  I’m afraid I haven’t spent nearly enough time working with them, something I’d like to rectify in the future.  I’ve been CRAZY busy for over a week, so they’re like a fun writing vacation between playing at my WIP that never ends.  I had a nightmare a few nights back that I’d FINALLY finished my book, but it looked a little like the vampire version of War and Peace.  EEK!

 Speaking of nightmares, I’ve had a LOT of crazy dreams over the past few nights.  I had one where I was a “doll” in the TV show “Dollhouse.”  I had a dream where someone was trying to murder me.  Crazy stuff!!!  Lots of running and chasing in these dreams, they haven’t been very restful.  I think they’re all stressed induced.  Lately, I feel as though I’m being pulled in a million different directions, like everyone wants to take a piece of me.  I need a little Juli recharge time, not much, just a little.  Work life has been extra stressful lately, reality has been extra…REAL…blah, blah, blah… Stupid Reality!  Nobody wants to hear about it.  😛

 Have a great day!

    1. Good question…Hmmm. WordPress must be “fixing stuff” again. All the sites seem to be updating stuff lately. It’s driving me crazy. My icons were on the left yesterday, so this must be a NEW switch.
