Sick, Writing, and stuff

May 20, 2014

Like a horror movie villain in an ill-advised sequel, my cold has returned. I had a sore throat, chills, headache, and general symptoms just before comiccon two weeks ago. I never really go back to feeling 100% I was hovering at 40% wondering why I felt crappy. I assumed it was simply because of allergy season. Turns out I have been fighting this this for over two weeks and now I’m losing. That or my wife didn’t catch my cold but something similar and then passed it on to me.

I’m in a weird, uncomfortable period of mourning for the character I killed in my novel. It’s weird I didn’t think I’d feel it but I did.

Between the persistent cold, the death of a character, an excessive amount of work, and a favour I promised a friend I’d finish by May. I took last week off from writing and I’m going to take this week off. I might take all of May to make sure I get everything done in time.

I was hoping to finish this novel before July but I have another 5-9 chapters left. Hopefully by September.

Ok. Back to work!

Talk to you soon.

Recommendation Wednesday – The Ten Doctors

May 7, 2014

Hi,

I saw the new Amazing Spiderman last night and loved it. Unfortunately, the tickle in my throat I’ve had since Saturday turned into a full blown pain and by the end I could barely talk.

I’m home sick now and am going to attempt to do so writing.

Here’s this Wednesday’s recommendation: The Ten Doctors

It’s a webcomic with all the Doctors from Doctor Who from 1 to 10. It’s set right after The Runaway Bride and right before Season 3 and the Doctor’s adventures with Martha.

It should be fun for those of you who’ve watched the rebooted series but it’ll be amazing for those of you who’ve watched the classic series too.

The writer captures each doctor and their companions perfectly, somehow managing to bring out each personality in a cast of 30+ characters, not counting villains. Talking about villains, they’re all there from the Silurians, to Ice Warriors, all the way to the Valliard.

Enjoy,

Eric


Alive, mostly!

January 15, 2014

Hello World,

I’m still alive. Mostly. Well Kinda…

I’m fighting a cold or flu or something. I’ll spare you the gory details.

I spent yesterday in a weird nauseated fog and hibernated. Today I felt mildly better and slept in just to make sure.

The one thing weighing on me is that I didn’t write yesterday. I’m always extra stressed about writing during the first third of a novel. It feels like if I stop then I’ll never get started again.

With than I’ll stop procrastinating and go try to write.

Wish me luck.

Attached below is my version of the Venusian Lullaby sung by the 3rd Doctor. It’ll be the credits song for my eventual web show.

Thanks for reading and see you later my invisible friends.
