Today was the first official day of my layoff from work, so I was feeling a bit aimless and unsure of what to work on. I have quite a few things around the house I could have occupied myself with, but I just couldn’t get motivated to get to them.
Add to that, I was up way too early. Downtime always messes with my sleep schedule. It’ll take maybe another day before I’m used to not having to live like a vampire again, as I work mid-nights and sleep during the day, usually.
I did end up doing some work outside, though not everything I wanted to do. And, I worked on a silly little project just for fun… a role-playing dice storage box/dice tower. I’m pretty happy with the way it came out. A video and pics of it are below.
I did manage to get some writing in, and passed 1667 words, though just barely. I kept the writing to stream-of-consciousness stuff, and polishing up my outline. I really don’t want to start a new fiction project this close to NaNo, so I think that might be the pattern until Thursday, when NaNo begins.
But I am managing to continue writing every day, so at least there is that.
