It's been a week since I've written and I suppose I should update. I bet you are all just DYING to know what I've been up to. You've been clicking on your Reading Page, then frantically pounding on the F5 key just hoping that I've updated. I'm sorry to disappoint you these last few days. I shall make up for my grievous neglect.
/sarcasm

Not much has been going on in the realm of writing/editing. I have been reading a lot which makes me feel that not writing isn't so bad. Reading actually helps me write. It helps my own words to flow, so I look at it as an exercise. I started the 6th book of the Outlander Series. Each of these books are about a thousand pages long. I'm sure I've already read what equates to a regular book in length with what I've read so far.

Everyone was so surprised to learn about red mechanical pencil lead in my last entry. I suppose it is true that you learn something new every day! It came in the mail last Wednesday, and I excitedly ripped it from its package and put it in one of my pencils. I worried a bit that the lead would be fragile and I was right. It snaps easily even when the point isn't very long. I have to be careful. I had ordered the thinnest lead possible, .5mm. Next time I will order .7mm and hope it's a bit more durable.

Every day during lunch I have every intention of doing something writing related, but I don't. I end up online piddling around. I blame this partially on the fact that they put someone in the vacant cubicle that I used for writing. It was secluded, offering peace and quiet as well as no distractions from the computer. It's hard to find a place in the office for quiet times on your lunch break. They don't like people using empty conference rooms, even if they are not reserved for anyone at that time. Every place else has people walking all around and noise.

Of course this is no excuse to not write on my lunch break. I could learn to deal. I could sneak in some conference room until someone tells me I can't anymore. Clearly, I need to make more of an effort.

let me go do that....

How do you like the Outlander series? I have been looking at it, but they are long!

That sucks that you have lost your quiet writing area. Is that person there for the long haul or a temporary thing? The weather should be getting nicer, outside should be a nice place to do a little writing (though, may just be as distracting :D).
