Tuesday: Autumn is here, and I’m alive again

Not much to report today concerning NaNo prep, other than that I am about halfway through re-reading my current draft and am still excited to be continuing this project. The more I read, the more confident I am that I can finish in November. Which means, mind you, the regular updates may have to stop or, at minimum, be a little less frequent. But until I have to write 2,000 words per day, I am here giving updates.

The world outside was chilly this week, and it made me feel a specific kind of calmness that only fall and winter can bring. When it’s cold outside, my bones grow quiet in a way that I can’t achieve in the summer months. I mourn the passing of warm outside days — flower-bed weeding and lunchtime walks and lying poolside and sweating while working on the property my partner is renovating — but the chill brings such stillness. Such strength.

It feels like I can breathe again.

This week, I rekindled my love for tiny crochet projects and am working on a set of coasters. I am also working on a mat for my kitchen counter that looks a lot like this one:

Except it’s going to be red, like so:

Also, I have discovered Star Trek: Voyager this week, thanks to my partner (the Architect) and Y’ALL.


Why are people sleeping on this show? It’s all about humanity and time distortions and it’s wonderful. I plan to watch all of it.

Follow me on Twitter for more *really exciting* takes about Star Trek: Voyager.

Anyway. How was your week?
