December 9th, 2019 – 439

Last day at work before the GE on Thursday. I’m going to keep this pretty short, as I want to know my work queue is empty of urgent and timebound tasks. That way I can focus on the thing I am doing my best not to think about. Never let it be said that I am not a moron. Damn that double negative; I wonder why I am never going to get mainstream publication…

So I’m focusing on other stuff in my head. I ordered three of the Secret Lair products WotC released this month. I have a Bitterblossom, Life from the Loam, Bloodghast, Golgari Thug and The Ur-Dragon for my cube. The Sliver Overlord is going to be on the other side of my foil Onslaught Sliver Overlord. The Reaper King is getting it’s own deck: the Commander version of “There’s the Door”. The deck that forces you to kill yourself with Door to Nothingness. So yeah, I have cool stuff to take my mind off things.

Know what other cool things I have to distract me? That’s right wri-Stardew Valley. The latest update came out recently and I have been able to play it at long last. I’m having a blast; just having less stuff fall in the water is so nice. So yeah that’s nice. What else? What else…

Oh yeah this is meant to be a writing blog isn’t it? Well, I mean TSS is at 55k or so, like I said yesterday. I haven’t written anything yet today. 23 days to write 20k words is, well I’d feel ok about that on the old model. Now I’m treating story content every day as the norm, it should be no problem. So I was a bit silly about this, but writing is my biggest distraction. I’m gonna get back to work, but I am feeling pretty good. I don’t think I’ve ever been able to say I feel ‘good’ the week of an election in my life. At least one I was consious of. I missed 1992 by 4 days so, I mean I guess I was ok for that one? Ok enough rambling…
