Captain’s Log, Stardate 01.14.05
I’m feeling terrible today. I’ve had a cold all week but today I have a pounding headache in addition to my sore throat and cough.
On a positive note, my friend Pammer had a cyst removed without problems. Yay, praise God!
My Quiet Times have been good. I think I am even starting to gain a little patience. Work is fine, although I still would rather be writing, but I’m starting to see how God can use this time and this experience to mold me into a servant He can use. And if that’s His agenda, I’m all for it.
Writing: I had a good time Wednesday night reading Maass and tweaking my storyline. I especially worked on how my setting can become a vital part of the storyline. I mean, it makes sense when you think about it--a setting should be like a crucial character in the story. The plot or the characters wouldn’t be the same if the story were set somewhere else.
But yesterday I forgot to do my 100 words, and I spent the evening relaxing instead of writing. Hopefully I’ll get to that tonight.
Diet: Uh-oh. 2200 calories on Wednesday, about 2000 yesterday. Today has been good, only 800 so far. Exercise? Ha!
