I had something specific in mind for today’s post, but I seem to have lost it. By the time I took this photo, I had already been awake for an hour, and this was five hours ago. Actually, I first woke at 4am, when my phone gave a little brrrring to let me know I had a message from WordPress. After my alarm went off and I had a cup of coffee in hand, I checked the message, thinking someone from a different time zone had left a new comment. Nope, it was just a notice letting me know Mrs Fringe had had a spike of views and activity. Not earth shattering, but more than usual. Ok, thank you! Now I see I’ve had quite a few more hits than usual over the last several hours, and can’t figure out why. I had a brief moment of oh! maybe I’ve been Freshly Pressed again! Nope. My stats aren’t showing that someone linked a post, no new comments, I have no clues.
And I’ve been busy. Very busy playing with my rocks
And making water. S-l-o-w-l-y. Water has to be specially filtered for a reef tank, so as not to kill the (future) corals and invertebrates. That super-duper make reverse osmosis deionized water is an agonizing process. Most of the water runs right back down the drain, and the RO/DI water pretty much dribbles out. I’d have to have another tank to test my theory, but I’m fairly certain I could spit and fill the tank at the same speed.
Most of my writing buddies are gearing up for NaNoWriMo now. I don’t do NaNo, it just isn’t how I write. I guess I’m like that filter, spits and spurts rather than a steady stream. Unless it’s an agent or editor lurking and viewing my old posts, in which case, rest assured I will produce at whatever pace is requested, because I’m trampy that way.
I’ll leave you with a song that was playing in the grocery store this morning, that I hadn’t heard in way too long.
It’s important to know your process, what works for you, and defend it. NaNo doesn’t work for you, and that’s cool. I have fun with it, and have produced SOME good from it, anyway. Still no dollars in my hand, though, so maybe not?
I agree, it’s important to know what does or doesn’t work for you, and not force yourself to try and work in a way that doesn’t. I wasted years because of the stories of women who wrote “after the kids went to bed,” before I accepted I was TOO FRIED after they went to bed, and morning was better.
And no dollars here either. 😦 One of these days…
Is it silly to say I think your tank is beautiful already even though it has nothing but 2 inches of water in it? 😀
Not silly at all–I feel the same way 😀
