Early Morning Editions of Mandy

So it’s 6am and I’ve been tossing and turning in my bed for about 2 hours. It’s been like that for a couple weeks now. I’m up early cause I go to bed early, sounds good I suppose, but it’s not. I’m tired of waking up to find out that my clock only reads 4am. Who the hell gets up at four am? I suppose I could, maybe get my writing done earlier on, which is what I’m trying today… Blog first, like I used to at the other place, get the brain juices flowing… (I wish those just started on their own. I’d be way more productive.) I didn’t get up at 4 though, I opted to toss and turn a little more this morning, just til it starts to get annoying.

I think not going to the gym has had a part in my getting up insanely early. I miss that extra energy that I got from the whole gym trip. I’ll be heading back to the gym again in February when I move into my new place.  (The last move for AT LEAST a year, I’m so tired of packing my shit and relocating it… Free rent is nice, but I miss my stuff that’s all in boxes.)

At least my writing’s been getting somewhere, well I think it has. My novel is creeping ahead at least a chapter every two days, I can’t complain about that. It’s not easy to write a novel, (not that I thought it would be) but I assumed when you had the idea for the book that the story just flows. It doesn’t happen like that… Mostly you’ll be writing a sentence and then say “Ah, shit, I have to put “this” in somewhere in a previous chapter.” That’s how I’ve been writing, now maybe it’s my fault and I should’ve had a better timeline, but give me a break, it’s my first novel. 😀

Speaking of novels, on top of the first one which is a horror/zombie book, I’m also starting a new novel. I have the points that I want to talk about and I’ll be making out my timeline for this one today. Sure it’s probably not a great idea to have to books on the go at the same time, but whatever. If you’re going to do something, do it. The second book is not fiction, but a type of biography I suppose. Someone in my life has an interesting point of view on things and I want to tell their story, so I will.

*(I’m not sure if this is helping me get the juices flowing but it’s nice to see that I can string words together before coffee’s done, which it is now, that’s my cue to get some…)
