Progress: Second review of Chapter 8

TiaraContinuing what I was saying last week, after having coffee, I figured out what I still needed to do and made a checklist.  I need to do a second review of Chapter 8 before continuing my review of Chapter 11, which would put me back on track.  It might take a while for Chapter 11, and I’m not going to re-post the revised story until I can continue with something new.  I’ve been having a lot of issues with fatigue and concentration lately, so I’m not where I want to be with any of my projects, but that’s the way life is, you know?

I really wanted to be done recording, but I didn’t like the way I said “mortal” in any of the recordings I did, so you know what this means?  Yep.  I’m going to do more recording.  I might be able to do it tomorrow since I’m off work so I can see an allergist.

In Progress

I don’t have anything in my drafts I’m working on right now…or nothing I’m able to disclose.

Thank god I’m off tomorrow.  I’m finally seeing an allergist so I can find out what the hell is breaking me out and finding a way to avoid it.  Unless it’s cats.  I’ll just have to live with that *shrug* but I know I’m allergic to some ingredient in Cetaphil.  What does this have to do with writing projects?  Uhh, I’m kind of blanking because I’m in that place where I’ve had a ton of coffee, but my concentration is still shit.  

Best wishes for all of your current projects!

  2. Good luck with the allergist, I hope you’re allergic to something easily avoidable, like a specific brand of toothpaste. I’m chuckling at you not liking the way you said ‘mortal’, but also quietly impressed, that is attention to detail! How do you find listening to your voice? Have you got used to it? (I’m not sure I ever could)

    • Dust mites and a little bit ragweed and cats lol. I had a feeling I was allergic to cats, but I have cats and that’s not going to change.

      I’m okay listening to my voice! I used to sing so I’m used to the way it sounds. I also have my “recording” voice which sounds a little different from my regular speaking voice, but I’m okay with that, too.


      • Oh no for the cat allergies! My flatmate is allergic to dust mites, which is tricky because dust is everywhere. I hope they were able to suggest some solutions.

        I didn’t know you could sing, that’s great! I know I have a different voice for the phone. An ex-boss used to have a different voice for her normal phone and her new iphone, I don’t think she even realised she was doing it.

        Good luck with the recording 🙂
