Why not write both and see what happens? I've heard that when writing sometimes the character takes over and does the writing for themselves when it's authentic to their nature. As I'm not a writer I don't know if this is true or not, but it sounds awesome right?!

Yeah, I may do that and then I'll see which one I like better. I think it really could go either way, I just need to decide which emotional path is best for the character at this point in the story.

It's very crazy. I heard from one of my co-workers that now we have to take on work from another position as well as our own work (because apparently we don't have enough). Everyone is so swamped, and there's not enough people to do the work. And thank you, I appreciate that. :D It was very calming and relaxing, but now I'm afraid to go back LOL.

LOL, cravings happen that way. :D I did end up making the pancakes, but it's been so long that I burned them a bit. They still tasted good though. :)

The stores are crazy. Nearly everything is completely sold out. I only went out to grab a few things, and ended up buying a few extra things for my pantry because who knows when the stores will be restocked. It's madness. Anyway, mostly keeping up on things. Didn't get as much work done as I'd like, but I should still have this chapter finished by tomorrow (crossing my fingers). I'm hoping I only need to give it another once over after this to add a few details that I forgot about and clean things up a bit and then it'll be good to go. We'll see. Had 2 to 3 servings of fruit the last few days. Missed a workout yesterday but got it in today. Cooked three times this week. Read some. Finished all three seasons of Shadowhunters, which is an awesome show (except for the ending, I didn't like it very much). Also finally got around to watching the new Charlie's Angels movie, which was also awesome. I don't really like Kristen Stewart, but she actually did really well in this. Still have things left on my list that I wasn't able to get done this week but hopefully I can do some of it next weekend. 

 

Anyway, I think that's it for an update. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Sorry I haven't been on much. Will update that on my thread.

You're doing a great job with all the pressure you've been under. Don't beat yourself up. *hugs*

Feeling overwhelmed while at work? Go hide in the bathroom for a minute. 😉

Seriously though, it sounds like the routine you started with taking mini-breaks was helping. Keep it up.

Not quite 9.5 hours but pretty close. A bit of a rocky start as I get back into the swing of things but by the afternoon things weren't too bad. I took some work from other people to help lighten their loads and bulk up mine, and I'm taking on more tomorrow. Still, I was hoping to get all caught up today and stay caught up, but the system was soooo slooooow. Everyone is officially working from home until everything blows over and as a result we're overloading the system, which slows it down, which means we get less work done. Oi. Anyway, off to watch the start of season 2 of Roswell, New Mexico.

LOL I've been doing that occasionally when I'm in the office. :D And thanks, it seems to be helping, though I forgot today (as I have a tendency to do, especially when the routine gets broken up), so I added reminders in my calendar.

Ugh, work is kicking my behind. Close to 10 hour days all week and I'm back to barely sleeping. Need to fix that. 

 

Your pain, I feel it.

 

At work now for my 5th 10 hour day this week after another lousy night's sleep.

Yup, for sure. My boss tried to get me to stay longer today, but in the end I didn't. I have to work OT over the weekend though.

Worked around 9.5 hours. Today stressed me out so much I stress-ate Nutella straight from the jar. Still, got in my yoga, 2 servings of fruit, and managed to somehow cook myself dinner. No writing since Monday.

Did all the things today. Had to go to two grocery stores to get enough frozen/pantry foods to last me for a bit. They surprisingly had plenty of fruit and veggies so I grabbed some of that too. But no one has fresh meat. Like, none. Why is everyone stockpiling all the meat? Crazy. Anyway, got in a 30 minute walk with all the running around I had to do to find food, de-cluttered a little, worked a couple of hours (I'm just shy of 50 hours right now, still have to work some tomorrow too), did some laundry, read for an hour, and revised about a page, aiming for another half a page, but I don't know. I think I'm beat. 

 

And that's the end of the challenge. All things considered, I don't think I did too badly. Had a couple of off days but otherwise mostly kept up with things.

 

See you all for the next challenge.

It is weird. I guess people see meat as an essential? But, I mean, we're all going to have to go shopping some time... so what's the point?

Yeah I don't know, the whole thing does seem rather pointless. I'm just curious where they are putting it all.

Looks like you did pretty darn good over this challenge! I think stress levels are just plain dialed up right now, stress eating a jar of Nutella is pretty understandable and doesn't sound like a bad idea tbh 😛
