Morning Pages Entry – May 26, 2014

Wheh!, that was a busy weekend. Sam and I managed to get the front window out and completely resealed. That was kind of nice, getting that thing done. Here’s to hoping that it worked. I’m not sure I got enough sealant down in the initial pass, and I’m not sure, that the screws were enough to hold it down, given that some of them (2) were stripped. But, hopefully, it till be enough. But, I suppose we will see. I did leave, a couple bags of top soil on the window, to give it a bit more weight, so hopefully, that will be enough. Time will tell. I suppose, I could have gotten slightly bigger screws for the two that were stripped, but it’s too late now. That would have been the smarter thing. Maybe, tomorrow I’ll run up, and run the hose on them to see if it worked. Would be good to know for sure. So, today, I would really like to have the last 5K words or so of the novel finished with my editing pass. I really need to get it done, and come up with a good way of breaking the novel out into two novels. Something that makes sense. I haven’t really done that yet. Then, I should go back, and perhaps add more conflict and/or drama to some of the scenes. The beginning, I think is a bit choppy, and could use some editing to make it flow a bit better. A result of my over zealous first editing attempts. I think I got too much sun over the weekend working on the boat. I woke up with a nasty headache at 3:40 last night, and had to take a couple of tylenols. I never get headaches. The other big thing going on this week, is I need to plan out the Whole30. Now that the window is out of the way (hopefuly), I can get to work on planning that. Although, I do need to rethread the fastner on the window over the galley in the boat. That would be a good idea. Can’t remember, if I bought a re-threading kit or not. Should check on that. Then, I probably need to order a new seal for the very front hatch of the boat. And if they all work, then super coolness, you may actually have a boat full of windows that are water tight. How cool would that be. I’d say pretty cool. That would be, about the time to sell the damn thing I suppose. Of course, once you start making six figures a year in book sales, that shouldn’t be a problem. This should be a really interesting year. A really interesting summer actually. Once you get the first three or four out there, that is. Just get them out there, and keep putting them out there. That’s the key. So many are doing exactly that, and you need to join the party. No more screwing around. Time to go. And, yes, I do also have to go to the dentist this morning, and get a cavity worked on. That shouldn’t take too long or be too painful hopefully. Just go and get it done. Then, it’s off to editing, and planning the whole30. You need to start putting together a shopping list. Maybe, in that spreadsheet you started. If I could make a bunch of runs to the grocery store for the really paleo stuff that would be good. At least a good start. Work on the menus, and work on stocking up the cupboards. Maybe, make on of the recipes to get us going. That wouldn’t be so bad. You would at least benefit from it. Maybe the book I ordered will show up today. That might be helpful. Not, that you’ve actually read the Paleo for Athletes book. You should definitely read the rest of that. I really need to do more reading in general. That’s something I’ve really been sucking at. I keep choosing to do other things, like play stupid games instead of reading. Maybe, you should force yourself to do it for the next 30 days, along side the whole30. If you can do it everyday for 30 days, at least 30 mintues, but more like 60 minutes, then maybe it would become a real habit. 60 minutes of reading every day. You have the time for it, just stop doing other stupid stuff, like watching endless vapid videos, or spending too much time on Facebook. That thing truly is a time sink.
