Today was the anniversary of my father’s death–it’s been 38 years since my daddy passed away. Mr. Rockstar ended up off today due to the rain so we spent most of the day staying busy. It helps if I don’t have time to dwell on things so we completely rearranged our bedroom so we could fit my desk in there. Why would I give up having my own small corner in the dining room to have my desk crammed in an even smaller corner in our bedroom? Because I’ll actually have more privacy in our bedroom, plus there will be less noise, and I’ll be away from the kitchen, and I’ll be able to be near Mr. Rockstar when I write. He’d rather have me typing away, (click, click, click) in here than in the other end of the house. Besides, I really wanted our dining room table back in the dining room.
He’s most likely going to be off tomorrow too, so tomorrow we tackle the guest bedroom/his daughter’s room and see if we can’t do something about the mess of stuff I have in there since he’ll be picking her up tomorrow evening and she’ll be here the whole weekend. We both want her to feel comfortable when she’s here and part of that is having some personal space…So there’s quite a bit of organizing and rearranging to do in there as well.
Now, my word count for today is low… My total word count as of right now (at 10:22 PM) is 10643, which means between 11PM and 12PM I need to write quite a bit. So I’m having a glass of my favorite wine and I’m writing this post and then I’ll be rocking and rolling for an hour. I was a bit stuck so I thought I’d write a blog post to help inspire and motivate myself.
Mr. Rockstar is so encouraging and supportive of my writing that it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. He’s asleep in our bed and I’m at the computer writing and having a glass of wine and I now understand why he went through the whole hassle of re-arranging our bedroom to accommodate my desk–I feel much more at home in our bedroom writing than I did in the dining room, and this will work fine until my son moves out and I can use that room as my office again. When he moves out, I’m painting the walls my favorite color, I’m buying a really big cork board and I’m getting new office furniture 😀 Maybe by then I’ll have finished this novel, edited and re-edited, and maybe, just maybe, I’ll be in the process of having it published. Who knows? I’ll definitely be finished with photography school so I’ll at least have one wall for my photographs. But for now I’m in our bedroom where I’m closer to Mr. Rockstar and he doesn’t feel left out this way. And, at least he doesn’t snore. If the shoe were on the other foot I’m not sure he’d be able to write while I slept unless he listened to music as he wrote with headphones on :D.
Camp NaNoWriMo finally put me in a cabin that is active–YAY!
Time to go back to writing! I have an assassin chasing my main character in a black van and he’s trying to run her off the road.
