Morning Pages Entry – March 10, 2014

OK, so I’m going to rant for a bit, or maybe not about how David at London Squash screwed up on our league governing body, and it’s relationship with Squash Ontario. Or maybe not that much. Maybe, I’m actually over it. Not sure. Suffice it to say, that he butted in where he knew he shouldn’t have and took matters into his own hands, when he should have respected the decision of the group. Whatever . . . friggin condesecending pricks at London Squash, always doing what they think is best for everybody, and that they know better. Anways, more about me. This is my journal. It would seem, that I messed up my shoulder a bit yesterday, playing squash with Mark. Not too happy about that, considering the we have city league playoffs coming up in not all that long of a time. Plus, I was really looking forward to playing in our club championships this year for the first time in a long time as well. That’s coming up next month sometime. I always seemed to be ridiculously out of shape or broken the last few years, and don’t end up playing in the tournament. Or any tournament for that matter. But, at the moment, my fitness is coming along pretty good, and my health is overall pretty good, considering, that I’ve been eating super clean in preperation for city league playoffs. Also, now that it looks like the club championship will be spread over three weeks from April 1 to april 8th to april 15th and april 17th. Which is a slightly better format, at least for me, as it means I don’t have to give up a whole weekend to play, and it means, that I can likely show up, do a decent warmup, and play a more rested match. It should be interesting. I think, it’s how London Squash runs their league, and it’s the first time we’ve done it that way, but it should be pretty interesting. I’m feeling really good this morning. Apart from the fact, that my shoulder is a bit hurt, the rest of me feels pretty amazing. I need to stick to this clean eating more often. My legs aren’t sore at all after playing 2 days of squash in a row, that were actually pretty hard days of squash. Almost 2 hours each day. I suppose, the clean eating, and the stretching I’m doing more after playing, is making a difference as well. Stretching every time I play squash is definitely a good thing, even if it just gets me to doing more stretching on a regular basis. It not only helps with my regular daily recovery, but helps in the longer term of getting more flexible. Which is where I was a few days ago when I was finishing up P90x, and doing the yoga, which was good overall for me, and why is it that people feel a need to come into my office, when I’m trying to do some writing and distracting me with their stupid shit. This really annoys the hell out of me at the moment. And the worst part is, that she friggin knows she does it. So, onto the writing that I have to do today. Actually, what I need to do is some editing, or more so, a lot of cut and paste, to get the story currently in it’s overly massive form to smaller scene portions. That should be a relatively painless operation, and one that gets me into the writing groove for the day. Unbelieveable. Pissing me off to no ends. So, again, like I said before, once I get it broken down into chunks, then it’s time for me to go ahead and make sure each scene, is interesting from a readers perspective. Specifically, enough conflict, and interesting enough outcome to make them want to read the next scene, and the next scene after that. Plus, the overall structure of the story, to make sure it’s peaking when it needs to. Pacing, is another concept, that I need to look into more detail about. I’m not sure, what would be considered appropriate pacing, but the concept sounds like a good one to strive for. Although, it’s likely one of those subjective things, that needs to be considered on a reader by reader basis. Just another opportunity, for me to improve my skill and craft of writing good novels, that will make each subsequent novel easier and better.
