In case you’re wondering, the quote is “Though the mills of God grind slowly; Yet they grind exceeding small.” In my case, of course, the emphasis is on “slowly.” As in, I am slowly beginning to get back into writing my novel. Sadly, only to the tune of about ~1500 words, but it’s a start, right? I even deliberately moved out of the scene I was stuck in to a more pivotal one, but in the end I kept procrastinating… and here we are.
I also didn’t manage to get the piece I wanted to do on Friday done… again, mostly because I got hooked on another translated novel with hundreds of chapters. I just don’t learn… But hey, I got the weekly chapter of ALW done. So at least there’s that. 😉
(Note to self: don’t admit that you wanted to do a second chapter this week. It will only depress you. 😦 )
As for what else I was doing this week… I picked up another metal model. Sigh… It’s a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle, and it looked really cool, so don’t judge me! I should have it finished by next Sunday, so look forward to that. I guess. 😛
Other than that, I lost most of today in a trip up north to a gathering of my wife’s extended family. I was going to type in the car… but ultimately ended up reading instead. Damn you, translators! (I’m kidding. I love you guys. 😉 ) Of course, that means that I didn’t get to do my “help others” stuff today, too. Sorry, Jack, I promise to find some time tomorrow to finish up with your project. *dozega*
Oh, and one other thing… I lost some more time after wandering into the livestream of renaissance man and aspiring writer ohmariowv (whom you might see commenting on my posts fairly frequently) and dropping a Panda-mic of bad puns on his head. As a pseudo-apology, let me take a moment to recommend his original web novel, Let’s Go Devil King! It’s a fun little parody of certain Japanese novel tropes, so it’s very tongue-in-cheek at times, but well worth the read. (He has another novel started, but I haven’t read that one yet. Eventually. 😛 )
Actually, I’ve been thinking about recommending the original web novels I read, as there’s only a few of them. I think I’ll do that. OK, from now on, a recommendation at the end of every digest! In case you missed the link (which is very possible, I think this theme doesn’t distinguish them very well. I still like the theme, though…) here it is again: ohmariowv’s Let’s Go Devil King!
