Progress Friday

Mood - both mind and body = knackered! (and that pic is where I want to be!) The boys are home, playing video games as usual, and they made me sit with them to watch Clash of the Titans this morning. While the sight of both Sam Worthington and Liam Neeson should've made my day, it actually made me backlogged and when I finally got online to do some stuff, it was to find that there are technical problems on the network and Internet is running verrrrrryyyyy slow!

So other than waiting it out - technically until late this evening or at worse, tomorrow morning - I prefer to log off and get some reading done. Brain is not cooperating to help me get some work down.

The plan today was to do some research for locations in Before The Morning, Book 2 of the Corpus Brides. The problem though, I'm doing most of this research via videos on Youtube. With the slow connection, I'll only end up tearing my hair out and wanting to throw my computer out the window. I can't afford either, I'll admit...

Not much progress achieved this week, what with the kids being home. I did outline some on the WIP, and planned out my writing schedule for the rest of the year.

Looking forward to a productive weekend when the Internet connection returns to normal. What are you all up to?

From Mauritius with love,

You have my sympathies, Zee. My kids are home too for the summer. Trying to keep them entertained whilst working is frustrating to say the least.

I hope you internet connection speeds up soon.

Thanks Kiru. It's working on basic speed now so I can get on but not do much more.

I understand what you're saying, Zee. Yesterday I took the grandsons to see Thor, and even though we really enjoyed the movie, it totally screwed up my day. Today was just a makeup day for what I didn't get done yesterday. Sigh ...

You don't see men having to make these concessions.

Hope your Internet picks up speed. Either way, have a great weekend!

That's exactly it, Chicki! Men just roll with the punches and never have anything to pick up! I'm days behind on my work because of this crappy Internet connection. Seems it's accelerated today, let's hope this keeps up.
