Words came so, so difficult today. It really felt like fighting for every single one of them. I got 1,103 today even though I was ready to throw in the towel at the 500 words mark. And while I am very happy with the scene I got today, I was also left very exhausted from the effort.
But being a writer means sitting down and putting words on paper day in and day out, so that is what I did, and it made me feel very accomplished, despite the exhaustion.
Even though I only got 1,264 words today, I’m quite happy with them because I managed some neat transitions between scenes and kept the flow of action very fast.
I also made some mold tests with the wax for the talismans and I’m pleased to report that the molds and the wax work and there doesn’t seem to be anything stopping me from making the talismans… Other than the purification process of course…I’m still very worried about that, because that’s the hardest part for me. I just don’t do vegetarian for more than 18 hours OTL
A day filled with family/house obligations and shopping. I’m happy to say I will soon be having a new phone. Great news, since I’ve been wanting one for a while.
Also, I had a very strange dream that has made me decide to finally attempt a mixed qabalah talisman making. I have some details to complete, and I’m pretty scared of it because this might be the most complex operation I have attempted as of yet, but I’m also very excited about doing it.
I’m also thinking of trying Benebell’s thunder rites exercise, since I’ve been very excited about learning more about Thunder Magic.
But it was a sad day for writing, as I only got 713 words done today. How disappointing.
Today was a nice day. I got a fairly late start, because of some family things, but despite that, I managed to complete all the work I had to do and documents to submit for some applications, and even managed to consecrate and place talismans on my new journal (the last one ended much faster than I had expected).
As for writing, I got 1,361 words today. I was aiming for 1,500, but I’ll take as many words as I can get. Especially since I really liked the scene I finished today. It was a fight scene, and those are always very complicated for me to write, but I really liked how it came out. It’s probably one of the strongest I’ve written, so I’m excited.
Also, I made a bit of an impulse purchase and bought two new tarot decks. But only because Amazon was having a great discount on them and I got them for half price, which is something that would probably not come by again soon.
Now I can’t wait for them to arrive!
I was out of the house for most of the day, and only got a little over 600 words done in the evening when I arrived. I’m hoping to do some more before going to sleep so that I can at least say I have a thousand, for the day, but I have some small things I need to get ready before that, like feeding the spirits which I haven’t done yet.
Other than that, I had a really nice day. I even got to eat a subway sandwich, which I don’t do very often, maybe a couple times a year.
Oh, and my current journal/book of methods is coming to an end, and I want the next one to be consecrated. It’s such a shame that the moon is waning right now. I’m thinking of buying a bunch of journals and consecrating all of them at once so this doesn’t happen again.
Today was a fairly good writing day. I got 2,325 words done, and was so close to reaching 60k on the novel, but had no more time to do it, so it’ll have to wait until tomorrow.
Admittedly, I got a late start because I had to do an invocation and offerings ritual at the second hour of jupiter today, and that along with all the cleaning and preparations got the most of my productive time today. It’s not the waxing moon anymore, but since this was a sort of urgent invocation, I had to make do. Mostly it was the completion rite for a previous invocation I had done a few days ago, but sadly the days didn’t sync up with the moon and other life stuff going on, which was a shame.
Other than that, I finished getting some important documents ready for stuff tomorrow, which was nice since I had been putting it off since yesterday (oh, procrastination, we see each other’s faces again).
Overall…I’ll try to work harder tomorrow. *sigh*
I only got 1,238 words written on my novel Sadaehn today. I was hoping for more (and also productivity in other things too) but I was dealing with some emotional/mental issues that just would not leave me alone. I’ve been dwelling on something that keeps draining my mental energy, but I’m glad I could sneak in a few words despite that. Sadly, I am now dealing with a headache because of that.
But I think writing is doing me a lot of good in dealing with all the nonsense going on in my head. It helps me focus and aim for something. I definitely need more focus.
It certainly didn’t help that it was a Void of Course moon today, either (in fact, I’m eyeing it suspiciously tbh). But I’ll be glad when it’s gone tomorrow. I did some tarot readings for certain personal issues today too, which I think came surprisingly in depth. I was only messing around, but they pointed me towards very pressing things I need to work on.
I guess overall, despite my headache, things ended up quite well.
