A 5-post collection

Tuesday, Patreon and Workload

I have completed five more chapters of A Devil's Tale, so I'll be reading some of that rather than more of Adapting. I can only read one chapter of Adapting a day and have my throat still want to know me by nighttime. ADT has much shorter chapters so I can do five of those per diem.

I really borked the programming attempts with Stencyl, so I'll have to use screencaps to regress to the previous stage of nearly working. None of that for my Patrons, alas. Dang. At least there's still fanfic.

I'll probably post another bit from Sympathy on my Patreon today because I am very likely to forget that I already posted an episode this morning.

Speaking of episodes, I still haven't finished a thing for the Foundry. Working on that, too.

My attention is divided in fifteen different directions, and I kind of need some hugs or at least comfort food. At minimum a real indulgent nap.

If I can, I shall at least make a start with the 2K-word summary of Beauties before the end of the day.

I'll do the offerings first, and see how far I go thereafter.

Sunday, Smouldering Holiday

I got that odd pre-burnout depression mixed with Asthma Brand no-air panic attack going on, so I'm going to line up the treat food and spend the rest of the day in bed and watching garbage.

I have all the post-medication signs that I should have done a nebuliser dose sooner. Including:

  • Pins and needles in the extremities
  • Tinnitus
  • Dizzy spells that are more like the entire grimoire
  • General wibbly wobblyness that means I should probably steady myself on stable objects for

Friday, Catching up?

Beloved is off to work. The fam does not expect much of me, so today - energy willing - I shall be doing the "normal" routine.

Starting with a chamber of dungeon, since I've not done any of that for a significant time. I shall then clean out the catio since that also needs to be done and then either filter ten more publishers (quick) or edit ten more chapters of Adapting (bloody slow).

Between those two writing processes, I shall make

I Need a Day

The cyclone headache isn't going anywhere.

I've actually had a guilt cry over the things I can and cannot contribute to my Patreon content.

I've had an emotional blow-up over things that, from a certain perspective, are inconsequential. To the people involved, they're consequential as hell, but in the grand scheme of everything... I don't even know any more.

I'm burned out.

I need a day.

So... I am disconnecting from online activity for all of Wednesday. Therefore, Wordpress Wednesday will be

I was doing so well. Then I forgot to write my alloted words yesterday. I'm feeling a little frayed around the edges and maybe taking a relaxed week might fix things in my head.

If this were Normal Output Mode, I would have five weeks left to finish this book of mine. Part one of a trilogy. This year has been the WORST year to start new projects with high ambitions because all my energy has been expended on anxiety about the
