Lots of D&D Stuff Done

I got a lot of D&D stuff done today. Rose at I think 11:00 and got out to Oasis Games within an hour. Spent about 3-4 hours there working on a floor plan and character sheets. Came home, laid down for a bit, had a couple text chats with a person or two, and wrote a scene before getting some more of Unara’s 33 spell cards done. All in all, a good day!

Gaming and Writing

Today was a pretty good day. I played MTG with some friends, wrote, and read a bit.  Also had a good chat with my sister. Yes, a good day all ’round.

A Better Day

Sunday was a better day. I was better rested, and had a fun time gaming. Wanted to write too, but that never actually happened, though I did read a bit.

Draggy Day

Draggy day for me. Just did gaming with my longtime gaming friends.

A Day Late

My mini for Kit's games.

Xylorian!

I fully intended to post yesterday’s report last night, but I was exhausted and totally zoned it before I went to bed, so here it is now.

Monday was an unintentional exhaustion day. I was so excited over getting Xylorian on Sunday, I couldn’t sleep. Couldn’t wait to show him off at Monday’s D&D game with Kit. Yeah, I know his paint job isn’t the best, but there was actually a point where he looked worse. LOL

Over the course of the morning hours, I wrote a couple scenes on something new. It was fun, even though it’s a gay romance. Really trying to go with the flow with these and doing my best not to be negative about it in my commentary about what I’m currently writing. I also read a bit.

We had a bit of a snafu with getting the game together. Kit woke late and had to do laundry, so we didn’t get started until 13:00. Katie wasn’t able t join us ’cause she was not feeling well, so we floated her character, which was fine. There weren’t any battles, but she missed the wonderful job Kit did with the temple where my character was raised and trained. We packed up the game around four or so and I hung out with Kit until his ride came to pick him up.

Back at home, I wrote some more, on the same story I’d worked on before going out. Then I stayed up until around 23:00 before realizing I wasn’t going to write any more.

Doozy of a Day

Gaming Stuff!

Stuff for D&D

I got a lot of good sleep last night, and I woke up feeling refreshed and well-rested for the first time in probably weeks. Woke up naturally too, without an alarm. And then stayed in bed until I felt like getting up. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to do that on a day I’ve got something scheduled.

Did my usual morning routine, including making some tea to take with me to gaming with MLTGF. We were set to play Magic, and I wanted to make sure I was all prepared for it. Then, when I left, I forgot my tea! LOL

Met my friends and we played for an hour or so. It was Phil, Trish, and Dave today; Dan chose not to come. No big deal. Missed him though. At about 15:10, when our first round wrapped up with Trish winning, I decided to head out. Trish had a headache and was going home, and there were some things I needed to do. My friend Anita, to whom I had an Amazon order sent, had texted me asking if I’d be home when she was downtown, and while I told her I’d be home around six, I had things I needed to get done anyway, and, to be honest, this was a day when I’d kinda not wanted to game at all. I’d wanted to hole up and write, even though I suspected I wouldn’t do so anyway as ideas weren’t flowing.

So I departed Oasis Games to head home. About a block away—I’d just crossed the street heading west, when someone on the street honked. I ignored it, thinking it was meant for someone else. They honked again, and this time I looked to discover Anita waiting in the turn lane. Since Dunkin’ was back the way I’d come from, I promptly turned around and crossed the street to go to their parking lot on the corner. This resulted in me hopping into Anita’s car. She had Greg with her.

After dropping some donations off at DI, we stopped at Sprouts I think and Smith’s to get some food for supper, then went to Anita’s place. There, we chatted while Greg and I crocheted, then we had supper and watched a couple of interviews on David Letterman’s Netflix show (I think he looks good with that beard); we watched the Howard Stern and Malala Yousafzai interviews.

It was a little after ten when we finally left Anita’s. She drove Greg home, then she and I went to Baskin Robbins for some ice cream and we had a nice chat while sitting in the parking lot in front of Trader Joe’s sipping our milkshakes. Then she drove me home, and I fed my cat, and here I am writing today’s blog post!

Another a Day Late

Really, I think y’all should expect this to be a common occurrence. But here’s the report.

Sunday was an unintentional exhaustion day. Though I took my night meds, I started writing after I did so, and whan that happens, it usually keeps me awake. And that’s exactly what happened. I spent most of the morning writing.

Then, at about 11:30, I had to head out to play D&D at Oasis Games.

When I came home, I wrote another scene on the same story I’d worked all morning on, then read some of my incomplete wips, then went to bed.

I Wrote Today!

10-sided dice!

The dice we use in Vampires.

Saturday was an all-round great day.

First off, I got my grocery shopping done. I think, of all the chores I have to do, I hate this one most. But I got to see a couple of friends and got my food. Yay.

Then on to gaming. I have longtime friends I’ve gamed with for years. We’ve played Vampires: The Masquerade for most of about ten or so years, so meeting with them is a regular thing. Recently, we’ve added Magic: The Gathering to our gaming habits, then there’s me making a D&D campaign for them, and if we can get the books for it, we’ll start the Rifts system. But today we played Vampires. It felt good to play it again, as we haven’t for a while.

Back at home, I got on my computer and idled for a while. I idle a lot. But this time, in searching for a specific story on my thumb drives, I found some writing I thought lost for good! A bunch of Urban Fantasy stories I’d been working on. Boy, I was glad I found it all.

And, last of all, I wrote today! So happy to have written. It felt great!
