Well. Today was interesting. I was unfortunately unable to complete my fairy tale, but I was able to work on it. It just keeps going and going and going. it is taking on a life of its own and the characters are running me around. I think it might be a rather long fairy tale, unless I can shorten it, which I might do for the sake of time, energy, and effort. Who knows. I also did a bit of editing for my 2nd book which was nice. I am on fire for that, hope the momentum keeps going. Tomorrow though I am going to devote my time and energy to completing "The Queens Crystal Plate" so I can move onto something else. That always seems to be what I am doing; finishing something so that I can move onto something else. I suppose that is what every writer does. My hope is that I will be able to find a balance one day, but who knows how long that is going to take. It is really cold out here in San Diego you know; I'm typing on my computer with a blanket wrapped around me and my fingers are still cold along with my legs. I thought I left this kind of weather in Illinois. I posted another video about me talking about the villains from my "Tale of 3 Brothers series." One day I will film more stuff and post that as well, but time seems to be elusive.

My sister told me that one concerning an individual she had seen around Christmas. I died laughter almost over the phone when she told me that, and upon reflecting on it today I also laughed a hefty amount. Part of it is an inside joke between her and I; if you've seen the film Real Genius then you might know what she is referencing. Today was rather blah like the weather. It was very dark, dank and dreary. I got essentially nothing accomplished save for a haircut and paying some bills. My attempts to post videos of me talking about the process of creating the Tale of 3 Brothers series met with something less than I would have hoped for, but it wasn't too bad. The program I was utilizing was rather frustrating, and my computer and internet connection was going rather slow. The day just didn't go as I had planned or wanted it to, and it vexed me a bit. So up top is one of the videos that I uploaded more will be on the way, but the lighting is so poor in my room that I have to acquire some additional lighting otherwise all of them will look all blah. That was essentially my day, and I was sprucing up my website a little; fixing bugs here and there and doing my best to polish it up, although I think next year a site overhaul might be a good thing. Change is good every now and then. I unfortunately didn't do any writing, but I was close; perhaps it was the weather. I don't know. It sucks when you know you need to write but you honestly don't want to. Well there it is. I am still pushing to have my fairytale completed, we'll see if I can do it in two days along with everything else that I have to do.
