So here I am, again,

Feeling better in most ways.

My writing muse, though, has left me high and dry for the moment.  I'm in one of those "I don't wanna write yet another IK intimate fluff moment" which I churn out pretty easily, because it feels like I'm repeating myself.  A longer story I'm playing with is stalled again.   I probably need to sit down and read a big chunk of what I've written again, to see where I am and contemplate what I can do that's not fluff, but at the same time, I'm not highly motivated.  I'm sure I'll click on something soon, but not this morning anyway.

Fandom for me is becoming stale once again. I've probably read fanfiction secrets and sf_drama too much lately...

I think I've also burned out on Castle Age on FB finally.  Haven't played it for almost two weeks.  Somehow, that feels really freeing.

But on the other hand, I'm doing some neat history projects.  I'm working with the diary of a young man who was involved with the American Revolution up to Valley Forge when he decided not to reenlist.  I'm looking to see if I can find some other diaries and documents to build on that with, as I trace out what it was like for soldiers during the conflict in their own words  (especially interested in various things they did besides active fighting).  I've been reading a rather snarky analysis of George Washington's expense account during the Revolution called, George Washington's Expense Account.  Book was written in the late sixties and between the snarky comments of the writer and the real and solid facts he weaves into it, I am having a good bit of fun.

Joined a gym recently (my old one, which I never went to enough, closed and relocated too far from where I live to make it feasible.)  This time, though, I am going to be working with a personal trainer....I'm too old and out of shape to start a new program on my own.  Had a good first session (basically he was selling us on his program.  I like his approach, worked hard but came away with none of my joints or tendons screaming at me, so that was a good thing.)

So spring is almost here where I live...not quite, but the grass definitely is greening and the weeds have started coming up, and I feel the change in my mind.  Looks like it's moving me in different directions this year.  Wonder where it's going to take me?

Sometimes the muses just need a rest. Now that I'm relegated to working on my stuff mostly on the weekends, I think it helps, albeit it's frustratingly slow to produce a finished piece now.

Hmm, it seems to be catching...

Good luck with the workouts! That's something you have to be motivated to do or else its a real struggle.

I agree with Lux. Maybe you need a rest.
And yay for the new workout. I'm trying to gear
myself up for a routine, too.

Which Revolutionary diary are you reading? This sounds interesting.

The Diary of David How

I got started on this because my husband got involved in a semi-argument about how people during the Revolution belted their hunting shirts if they were wearing them...Now I'm all interested in the minutiae of a soldier's life and the problems with trying to supply the Army...funny how these things develop....
