Matutinal Monday

matutinal ~ of, like or pertaining to the morning; happening early in the day

How was everyone’s long weekend? I don’t know about where you live, but where I am we had record breaking temperatures all weekend. It was amazing! People coming out of hibernation, peeling off layers of outerwear; lawns getting raked and gardens getting uncovered. The cats are happy campers because I’ve had the windows open for the last few days (although last night I had to close them ‘cause the temperature dipped down again).

I got a lot accomplished during my long weekend, but only some of it was writing. One thing I did notice was that I got more writing done sitting at my desk in my office instead of sitting in front of the television. ;-)

Got my all my regular posts written and up last week, although Friday’s post was slightly delayed as I struggled over just how graphic to make it. I’m finding there are a lot of things I’d like to change when I get the Space Opera into edits, and this scene is one of them.

The cutting myself off from games didn’t go as well as I expected, I still have a serious problem with Mahjong Connect. If anyone else would like to give it a try, you can find it HERE. It will provide hours of mindless fun.

Friday, I managed to get some editing done before the kids came over to help rake the yard. We’ve got a really big yard and can use all the help we can get. Saturday I spent a lot of time working refining my database and entering more books into it. Okay, I also spent a lot of time skimming through a few books I’d forgotten about, which is why I didn’t get any writing done. Though I did start reading one of the new books I bought for myself as an Easter present.

Sunday I surfed for subjects for my middle of the week posts and got some editing done. Then late in the day I suddenly remembered it was the fourth and today was the Behind the Headlines Blogfest. Naturally I ended up spending an obscene amount of time searching for my headline. Hopefully, I’ll get the actually story written either today or tomorrow.

This Week:

Tuesday: Part X of my Fortune Telling Series will be the art of Graphology. Hopefully I can pare down all the information I found regarding it to a manageable amount.
Wednesday: Something humourous of course. I have no idea what yet.
Thursday: This week’s Passion for Poetry will explore the Bref Double. Don’t forget folks, this is National Poetry Month. If you want to have some fun with poetry, have a go at the PAD Challenge (poem a day).
Friday: Chapter 34 of Space Opera. Will I allow Chaney and Nakeisha time to bask in the afterglow, or will I throw something bad at them before they can even catch their breath?

Elsewhere in my week:

Tuesday night I’m going to go Clash of the Titans with a friend to see how it compares with the original version and Wednesday I have a Scribes meeting (which should have been tonight but the library we meet at is closed for Easter Monday).

I’m thinking it might be a smart move to not only figure out what I’m posting (for the week to come) on the weekends, but write the actual posts too. This way all I have to do is schedule the posts for the appropriate time and weeknights would be available for other writing.

Too bad I didn’t think of that at the beginning of the weekend instead of the end. ;-)

And that’s pretty much it for my week. How about you? What are you up to?

I always think I should write my posts on the weekends too...but never have the time or inclination. I'm doing good just to decide on the subjects, so I've given up on that idea. But maybe you'll do better with it - I still think it's an excellent idea!

Let me know how you like Clash of the Titans. I don't remember even seeing the first one, but I hear mixed things about this remake.

I'm going to guess (or vote) that no basking time is allowed for Chaney & Nakeisha...but I'm mean that way.

And yeah, I'm sure I'd get more done if I got away from the TV too...but my addiction is strong! LOL

Here's to another good week... :-)

Yeah, the writing posts on the weekend sounds good in theory, but we'll have to see how I make out on the weekend. :-)

As far as the T.V. goes, I could take it or leave it most of the time. Except for Castle. And LOST. And Fringe, Chuck, Stargate Universe, Caprica, True Blood . . .
