First, I continue to love living in Seattle. After a few days of spitting rain, today is all blue skies and sunny patios.
Second, I haven't much mentioned my diet and exercise lately because it's bad. While I've been writing I haven't been to the gym or walked beyond the mailbox. I have my bananas and raw almonds, but then I'll just say screw it and eat a few slices of pizza. So yeah. I'm having a hard time focusing on both writing and eating correctly.
I know I need to get back on the program. But I also feel (irrationally) like time is ticking down for my chance at writing and I need to focus on that entirely. (It's not true, I should be able to multi-task.)
(My parentheticals are so wise.)
Fourth, I found a new alcoholic beverage to imbibe. It's called an Arnaud Martini and it consists of 1 shot Plymouth Gin, 1 shot Dry vermouth, and 1 shot Giffard Cassis or Chambord (I used Chambord.) Stir all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled glass. This drink is smooth, tasty, and not too sweet.
Fifth... I'm looking for anthologies accepting submissions. And I'm writing as much as possible before my classes end. I hope to finish two more stories before then.
