And on the Seventh Day…

The Hong Kong Experience: Day 07

2014/12/29 @21h02 HK time

A.K.A. Sick Day

Whelp, the Big Guy Upstairs rested after a week, so who am I to argue?

Also, I caught a stomach bug. The trade off? The street food was delicious.


Despite the excruciating pain of my insides being ripped out, I lost about five pounds, so yay.


Previously on The Hong Kong Experience…

The air up there. So much insight despite the lack of oxygen. Maybe that’s the only way we can get really philosophical. ūüėČ

Analyzing the world from different perspectives can give us new ideas and breakthroughs.


On the seventh¬†day of Christmas–vacay–my stomach¬†said to me,


(Well, not really. It felt more like a velociraptor screeching while doing the Macarena in my gut.)


And the adventure continues…

#ROW80 Mid-Week Check-In 2013/06/07


JuNoWriMo and Kiwi Writers SoCNoC  Tweeting also using #JuNoWriMo and #SoCNoC hashtags. As expected, my daily word counts dwindled this week as opposed to the frenzied start over the weekend.

Fractured Fairytale Series Word Count: 27,167 words

I think the added pressure–ahem–motivation from the¬†25,000 Words in 7 Days¬†challenge has helped me churn out the words. So far, it’s been between 8:30pm and 11:30pm, though tonight I lost an hour and gained more wrestling time with TKT. (Totally their idea, not mine. Honest. But hey, I couldn’t resist.)


See, this his how messed my eyes are. I keep checking my calender and think that this week is my break between reading challenges. It turns out that I have another week of reprieve. However, I have a few books to finish and reviewed, so I’m getting through those as well as catching up on my backlog of workshop lessons and writing reference reading. Any and all education to better hone the craft is essential in any writer’s toolkit. So, basically, I’m reading a lot of stuff. Some made up, some not. All good. ūüôā


As you can see, I continue the updates with¬†#ROW80¬†posts and check-ins with the awesome¬†#wipmadness¬†community on Kim¬†Baccellia’s¬†blog. On last Sunday’s Week in Review I posted my entry for¬†FLASH MOB 2013. That should be interesting and we’ll see how it goes. There are a couple of short story submissions I’m working on but as I’ve yet to focus on them, I’m just blogging about the advent of their existence. ūüôā

This month, let alone the year, is going by so fast. I hope everyone’s doing well with their goals. I can’t believe eighty days are almost up. It’s been quite the ride. I’m going to assess my current goals and start planning for the next round. I really appreciate how¬†#ROW80¬†has kept me going. I anticipate the latter half of 2013 will be just as splendiferous–and equally exhausting! Happy writing/reading/blogging the rest of the week, everyone!
