What a week! More love and friendship that I could ever imagine! I have decreased my meds, been on the lower dose for 10 days, and I feel fantastic – no withdrawals whatsoever. Its the manic moments that I am having that makes me think that I need to reduce down again. But softly softly, catchy monkey. I don’t want to rush this and end up being totally screwed over and back on high doses again. I will wait for a couple of weeks before I look at decreasing again, because I am waiting for ‘the drop’ – when you’ve had a good time, and the next day you hit a slump, a large drop in your mood and you wonder what is wrong with you. It is part of my depression, I have a good day and my mind tries to bring me down. It sucks big time, hence waiting to see if I get it, or if perhaps I’m too manic at the moment. The doctor said it is all up to me, but I’m sure she’ll want to know if the manic feeling continues.
I have started writing Dragons League – Lost and Found, and very excited with how quickly the story wants to come together. I’m loving my hero, the stubbornly arrogant Finn Barclay and my lovely, naive journalist Ruby Simpson. I think the fun thing is that I have done their Personality traits, Finn is an introvert, and Ruby is an extrovert. See where this is going to go? My only problem so far, is the victim was supposed to die in the first scene, yet he is alive on a life support system. I’m not sure why he wouldn’t die, but he is certainly in a more serious state than when Finn left him. Questions, questions!
I’ve also been editing Running Away, but I have been finding it hard. My editor has been rather particular in her comments, and they are fair. When I read it through, I get where she is coming from, but it can be hard to get my idea across. I have to sit back and have another think. I’ve made some changes, but there are more required, I skip through some and work on those that I can. I still want to get this out by the end of April, but I might just be pushing it. We’ll just have to see what happens.
Since setting up Flying Kiwi Services I have had a couple of queries regarding the proofreading, but I really need to get this off the ground and start making some money from it. I think I’ll look at some marketing this week and see what I can do to get this business off the ground. It would be fantastic if I could get enough work from it to come off the benefit.
Yesterday I got some winter plants for my garden, so I have a list of jobs I need to do to get my garden ready for winter. Looking forward to getting my pansies into the garden and seeing them come away for some winter colour.
Anyway, I am one post behind in my A to Z Blogging Challenge, so I will have two to post up today – phew. But it is all good, will have to try and get some posts scheduled up.
What are your plans for the week?
Hope you all have a positive week.
