Good morning,

A short letter this morning. It's the beginning of the Easter holiday here in the UK (which is a four day weekend affair--it's a lot like Thanksgiving in the States). The Gryffindor is out at the farmer's market stocking up, I've just taken the grocery delivery (for things that cannot be acquired at the farmer's market), and our American friend arrives early this evening.

There's a thousand to-do's that still need their boxes ticked off, but before I get any further, I'm going to get some writing in.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend--whether it's Norwescon or Easter or even just laying around and vegging it out.

ETA: G brought me back an Easter present.

Good almost-not morning,

At the moment I have physical therapy (or "physio" as they call it here) on Thursday mornings to deal with a long-term pain issue. This schedule throws my routine off, but I suppose it's mini-lessons in resilience. It's a half hour walk each way--so hey, at least I get my daily walks in and I'm home, all beat up and exercised. Now after a brunch, I'm beginning to transition to the story.

I'm still working on my ritual of approach, but at the moment I'm trying out tidying the studio (in my case, that involves cleaning the litter box, sweeping scatter, and often a quick dust). I make tea in a special little pot and cup I've designated for the job--and I'm using my nice teas. I'd gotten into a laziness of just drinking any old bagged tea, so I've been making sure to use my nice loose leaf teas for writing time. (I'm realizing as I write this that this tea set-up is reminiscent of my Yumchaa writing dates with [personal profile] alobear, which might be why it's helpful.)

The music is on, I'm writing my morning letter....

Thinking about the old days of social journaling, I went to look for a word meter. It appears the one me and the gang used to use all the time has gone down, but I found this one that I think is close enough.

PS is a YA/NA story I've been plotting on for quite a while. It's fantasy, set in the future on a necropolis moon. I'm very much enjoying finally getting to dive into it--although there is that nagging feeling that the last FN story still needs revising and the deadline is creeping up.
