M. B. Weston’s Writing Diary: 01/04/15

I’m going to be short because it’s already 3:22 tomorrow and I have to get to work.

So I’m not going to delve into detail about the how long it took me to pack up all the Christmas decorations, or put the pantry back together when one of the shelves fell down after I added more groceries to it. Nor will I talk about how I remembered I had to record my radio show while I was walking the dog around 9;45 tonight. And I certainly won’t complain about the “revamped” website I always use for research not working as well…

Nope. Won’t do that.

Instead… Today was one of those days. I finished researching for my radio show around 2:45am and took a nice hot shower. I really wanted to go to bed–especially since I hadn’t sat down all day.

But I made my new year’s resolution about writing every day this year, and I’m going to do it.

I also have a handy little iPhone with a Microsoft Word app on it. So I went out to the living room and started typing in the dark. I solved a major problem with the first scene as well!

But now I’m falling asleep mid-sentence so it’s time to call it a night.

Two lessons learned today:
1) the iPhone app is awesome!
2) all writers need servants….

All right, I’m off to bed before I accidentally type something I shouldn’t.
