Morning Pages Entry – February 20, 2014

Arrgh, got myself in a bit of a conflict here. Devan told me Tuesday night, that he couldn’t play league Thursday, and I forgot until this (Thursday) morning to try and get James to play. I only forgot, because he didn’t email me, he just mentioned it to me down at the courts, and my feeble old mind seemed to forget about it completely. Darn. Anyways, here’s to hoping maybe Devan can still make it. It was only his girl friend, that was giving him grief about playing or something. I’ll have to see what I can do to coerce him otherwise. We could even play at a later time if that helped. I would so much, like to hold on to first place in the division for a change. It would give us home court advantage, and besides, I’ve never had a team go the whole year and end up in first place after the regular season play. That might be something different to work with for a change. If we had won last week, or, even one other week along the way, that would have given us a better lead to work with, but ah, what the fuck. There was something else I forgot to do yesterday as well. Ah yea, it was the laundry. Guess I’ll have to wear my old pair of Micheal Jordan shorts for league tonight. That’s alright, maybe they’ll bring me good luck. Anyways, time to worry about bigger things. I need to get back in the writing / editing saddle. Shouldn’t be that hard. I would love to get the first book out soon. This month would be nice, which probably means a major rush on the editing thing. Even if I get David and Mark to help out with it. Even if I get what I have now rough edited and out to them, while I’m finishing the ending, that would be good. At least you can get things in process. Man, I ate some shitty stuff yesterday, just because I read an article about cheat meals from BeachBody, and now I feel crappy. And, the thing was yesterday, is that it wasn’t all that great. I just felt hollow inside eating that stuff. Chocolate chips, and some nacho chips. They didn’t do a damn thing for me. I was just craving real food instead the whole time. That’s a good thing I suppose. It definitely won’t be hard to get back into eating good again after that experience. I actually can’t wait to eat something good for a change. Looking forward to my regular breakfast and my big ass salad for lunch. I just felt really hungry and anxious yesterday. Like I had a bunch of nervous energy that couldn’t be satisfied any other way besides eating .. . at least I thought it would, but in reality the food I ate didn’t do a damn thing. I should have just stuck to the good stuff that I usually do. I don’t know. I think it’s this constantly eating good food, is changing my energy levels, and I really don’t know how to handle the extra energy. It’s like I’ve got all this energy inside of me, that I can’t control. I need to work it out somehow in a more productive fashion. I’m not sure, that writing will do it for me. It’s almost, like it needs to be something more physical. I missed doing Yoga last night as well. I was going to do that, but then got distracted with some other nonsense. Not sure why. I guess, because Sam was in the room and I just kinda kept forgetting. That’s a little unusual for me, I don’t usually forget to do my workouts. Gonna have to stop doing that. I do need to funnel some of my energy into the writing thing. Man after reading that 2000 to 10000 words per day blog post, it got me thinking how great that would be. I mean, I suppose, that if I can write 750 words in 15 minutes doing these morning journals, then in theory, that’s 3000 words per hour. Which is ridiculously fast, but perhaps not if you’ve got something interesting to write about. Then, it’s only like 3.5 hours of actual writing time to get your 10k daily quota. That leaves another 5 or so hours per day to do whatever else it is you feel like doing. Covers, marketing, editing. That would be pretty awesome if you could be that productive.
