Riardon the Elf Paladin
Today was a pretty good day. I managed to get out of bed without any hint of depression, and I got up early enough to do some research on what I needed to do for my D&D prep and get some of the missing stuff done.
Went to Oasis Games about an hour after they opened, taking my D&D prep stuff, paints, a palette, brushes, and a container for water, as well as my storage thing for minis with me. While I waited for Kit to arrive at our appointed time, I worked on D&D prep. He showed up a little early, and we got started painting minis. He did a Dwarf Cleric and I painted an Elf Paladin.
Came home around 16:30 after waiting with Kit for his ride to show up, and did some more D&D prep work. Should have done more, but I was just unable to focus well enough on it. I’ll get more of it done later this week, though. And I’ll be taking paper and stuff for floor-plan drawing at my volunteer sift tomorrow, so there’s that.
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.
