From about middle of last month, Demon Muse suggested that I keep a record of my word count. Don't tell him, but I think he is onto something. For the month of October I have a daily word goal of 1K, though this will be higher in November (for NaNo). So every day, I write in my diary my daily word count. Some days I write more than others. Other days, I write nothing, usually these are migraine days or days when Demon Muse gives me a day off. It's a habit, I've slipped into quite easily and have found it easy to keep track. To make it easier and cleaner for me for 2015, earlier today I bought a pocket diary for 2015. Just for the purpose of writing in daily word count.
This morning at 6am (BST) got attacked again by migraine monster, got up at 2:30pm (BST), it was another lvl 9 one. I am taking it easy, and not doing very much. Still shell-shocked from those dark disturbing dreams. I will probably get them down into a journal the next few days, when I can get my head around them. Migraine is gone but left with a high level background headache and still a bit out of head but am getting there.
This morning at 4am (BST), got attacked by migraine monster again, woke up at around 3:30pm (BST). It was a lvl 9 one, running off the back of the one had yesterday. Am feeling bit better than yesterday, but still out of it. I'm getting there slowly. Once again, the dreams hit and they hit hard. One time when I woke up, I woke up crying. So yeah, I've those to write down in journal for inspiration in next few days.
This morning at 6:45am (BST) I got hit by a monster of a migraine attack. Level 10, and it was a big one. Not felt pain like it in a long time, though the pain is now gone and left with a level 10 background headache (normal headache to those non-migraine folk), and still feel more than a bit out of it, am getting there. Slowly. The dreams, those dark disturbing fucked-up dreams, that come with it, the memory of which still linger. As usual it will probably be a day or so before I get them down into a journal. Though, to be honest, that thought scares me. They are the dreams that Demon Muse loves, because of the amount of inspiration that they give. And, when I look back in the journals from writing from those dreams when not post-migraine I can understand why.
In other news, the NaNoWriMo site is up and running for 2014 :) As you may have noticed on left hand side got a shiney badge (which is clickable) shouting to the world that I am taking part. And, also added a word count widget just so I don't forget, to do it come November. Yes, I know it's early and yes it is way too organised for me, but don't faint okay? That's as far as the organisation for NaNoWri gets. Normal un-organisation of me, is resumed.
This blog post is just for me, so yeah, probably not making much sense.
Following on from last blog post in the wee hours (3am & a bottle of wine <~~ clicky), Zero visited me and he was waiting to talk to me.
A drunk Zero talked to me in my dreams, and still a bit shell-shocked at what he told me. Now something you have to understand about Zero. Zero doesn't talk to me on his own, not like Snowflake does, not like the my other characters do. Zero has talked to me in the past but normally with Snowflake, never before on his own. And now I fucking know why! Seriously, as much as I love Zero and my other characters. Zero is draining on his own, still a bit out of what he told me, and no I can't tell you. I know a lot of you are patiently waiting for Snowflake 9 to start, you'll have to wait a little bit longer.
In other news I have three pages done on my first inspiration journal, even have a new shiney blog created to share it with you all. But that's not gong to happen today.
The bottle of wine in title was Demon Muse's idea, he said it would sound good. But it is 3am , and yes I'm still up. Started watching The House of the Devil on Horror + 1 and it's over in half an hour, and no sign of me going to sleepyland yet.
Earlier, I started on my inspiration journal, I have A4 journals. These are too big for writing journals, but not wanting to waste have decided to turn them into inspiration journals. As some of you know, imagery is a great source of inspiration for me. I'll upload photos of pages to a different blog when they're ready to share.
Though I do get inspiration from a variety of sources, it does and can strike at anytime.
Also one of my characters wants to talk, at this ungodly hour and he's drunk, he'll remain nameless (Zero). I now have his drunk ass to deal with! Though he is in wearing his 3 piece grey suit...
