The past couple of days I've been feeling just a bit off health wise. I'm trying to not let get me down, so I've been keeping up my writing somewhat. I've kept up with my nonfiction, but I didn't get to work on Crash into me last night like I wanted to do. I'd seen that MSN was looking for editors to manage their blogs in certain topic areas, so I threw a proposal together and sent that off last night. After doing that, I felt extremely drained. I already heard back this morning, and it seems the position for the blog I applied had been filled already, but they will keep in mind if it reopens. Between that and writing my weekly review for Dancing with the stars, I just didn't feel like writing anymore. I ended up reading some more of On Writing, and I finished the biography half last night. Now its on to the Toolbox section.
Speaking of Dancing with the stars, I don't know if anyone else has been watching, but I've been watching since the beginning, and I'll be sad to see the show end next week. I was also sad to see Joe McIntyre go home last night. I just adored him and his partner. Now, I'm rooting for John O'hurley and his partner Charlotte Jorgensen. They are the best of the two couples remaining. I can't wait to see what happens on next week's grand finale.
Today in her blog Beth posted this link to a site that gives you all these details based upon your birth date. I entered in mine, and this is what it said in regards to my personality based on my having that birth date:
Pleasant shape, tasteful clothes, modest demands, tends not forgive mistakes, cheerful, likes to lead but not to obey, honest and faithful partner, tends to a know-all-attitude and making decisions for others, noble-minded, generous, good sense of humor, practical.
I have to say it was fairly accurate on describing me, both the negative and the positive. I always get a bit freaked out when things like that are accurate. Same with horoscopes. I get mine sent to me from a few different sites in my email everyday. Always good to have multiple opinions in my book.
This month I joined in on two message board based writing challenges. One over at Evolution and one over at Word trip. I usually hit those two boards, Divas, and ERWF on a daily basis. I've joined others, but those are the four I feel the most at home at. I actually surpassed the word counts I had challenged myself to this month, and I'm trying to figure out what to do for July's challenge. I think I'm going to raise the bar a little for myself, but I'm just not sure how high.I'll figure that out later tonight. I also need to work on Crash into me tonight. Since there is nothing on that I review, I should be able to make some time once the house gets quiet for the night.
Have a happy Thursday everyone!
