Okay, here’s how things stand right now.
The bad news is I’ve been neglecting both this and the official book blog. Not good.
The good news is that I’ve written five pages of a possible feature script. I wouldn’t get too excited though, my hard drive is littered with script fragments that never developed into anything. But the fact that I wrote five pages of something AND the quality of the writing doesn’t make me want to drive a fork into my upper thigh makes this a win.
Also this week, the money from my mom’s estate came through. Most of which is no sitting in a moneymaker account at Rogue Federal. It’s not enough to pay off my student loans in one fell swoop but at least I now have some breathing room. (The reason for that breathing room righteously sucks though. And if I had the choice, I’d rather be floundering if it meant mom was still alive. But clearly, I’m not the one who gets to make that call.)
It also means I have enough money to treat myself to a little bit of a vacation.
Right now, the plan is in early May to head down to Disneyland. It has been years since I’ve been there and frankly, I’m due.
And honestly, it’s been a tough month here at Chez Jensen. Aside from the aforementioned writer’s block issues, I just discovered that one close friend has been diagnosed with skin cancer and another with congestive heart failure. And you factor in the recent unrest in the Ukraine AND the recent NASA report about climate change…
Well, let’s just say that there are rosebuds out there just begging to be gathered.
So, while I plan out the trip, I will still continue to try to tap out some words. Bloggy or other wise.
