I’m sitting here on Sunday morning, in my nice flannel PJs, sipping on some coffee and working on waking up enough to write. Today’s writing agenda is to start/finish chapter thirteen, get the plot moving and step up to the next thing on the vague sort of journey in my head.
Of course, being a working woman with no one to help with other important things, today’s agenda also includes laundry doing, kitchen and bathroom cleaning and tons of other fun house chores. There is the added bonus of having Monday off, so I get extra writing time this weekend.
Yesterday I worked in sprints of twenty five minutes, twenty five cleaning, twenty five writing. I may up that to forty-five minutes each today, see if it gets me out of the weeds. I’m also going to be making some beef stew, once I get the kitchen clean up that is.
Meanwhile, this is what is keeping me company through this whole weekend. The album just dropped this week, from my friend Steve Carlson and his friend Jensen Ackles (yes, that Jensen Ackles). I’ve known this was in the works for a while, and have been looking forward to it anxiously. It was totally worth the wait. If you like a little gothic southern rock mixed with a heavy does of blues and jazz notes and some AMAZING vocals, check this out. You can get it on Spotify and iTunes and probably a bunch of other places.
If you dig it, you can check out the band’s website for cool merch and to get the album on vinyl. Someone find me a record player! My favorite is probably Drowning, but I love Cannonball and Sounds of Someday too. Hell, I love it all, so I’ll be over here with the volume cranked up to 11 while I clean.
Happy Sunday, Readers. Time to make the words.
