So I get SAD every year. I hate the cold, I’m a whiner. I don’t get outside much during the fall and winter. I get SAD. And also, I stop fitting into my jeans and take to wearing sweats as much as I can, or at least pants without buttons.
That part of life is here.
It’s curbed a little by my supplements. I take amnio acids: 5HTP, which is a precursor to serotonin, and L-phenylalanine and L-Tyrosine, which help make dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. Also, calcium with magnesium and vit D, an omega, B-complex and digestive enzymes.
They keep me somewhat sane. I thought they were disrupting my sleep for a while, and I stopped taking them. I spent two days feeling like crying. I don’t have any desire to DO anything with them, but I don’t feel like sleeping and crying all day are good options. And I have 1000% more patience with whiny children, aka Sunshine Boy.
Anyway, after all my self-doubt last week or two weeks ago (when was that? ‘Cause it seems like a year), I decided to just do things that make me happy.
I’m not going to do social media much any more. I’ll pop in when I have time, but I’m relieving myself the pressure. Either I can write and make my fans happy with a new release, or I can pretend I use social media for something.
But tonight, I was all relaxed with hubby (okay we were making out) and my mind wandered (oops!) and I figured out where exactly the hero was taking the heroine, after he shows up on her doorstep. With coffee. And then a few scences after that.
I also did the Live your Legend 2013 goal planner. I know March and I’m setting resolutions. Anyway I’m changing up my life. No more vegetating on the sofa (as fun as it is to play Skyrim endlessly).
So, there is progress on the novel. It doesn’t have a title, I am terrible with titles. It’s named Adam.txt No plotting, no sneak peaks for you. I’m still feeling things out.
