Let's collect some snapshots in time. What are you doing, right this minute?

I'm flopped on the couch, just finished some soup and nagging husband to get his trunks on so we can hang out in the pool for a while.

Just finished doing laundry and trying to decide whether I want to cook or go get Chinese for lunch. :)

07-26-2014, 09:16 PM
Ooh, Chinese, definitely. You deserve it for doing the laundry, after all. :p

Ha, good idea for a thread. I haven't been up long, had a pretty late night. I'm sitting on my back patio, enjoying the soft summer breezes. I just poured my second cup of coffee and red juice and lit my second morning cigarette, just trying to connect one thought to another, listening to the neighbors beginning to stir as we brace for another sweltering day.

Listening to the creek and the birds while I chew my nails over a query I just emailed.

Just edited chapter 9. Then, opened a bottle of Fat Tire and popped a Prilosec so it won't kick my ass later. When I'm finished goofing off on AW, I'll open chapter 10 and argue with it over who/what goes and who/what stays.

Sat Nam! (literally "Truth Name"--a Sikh greeting)

Listening to Sikh music whilst typing this post.

Just finished a 10k run. Sitting in shade on back patio with laptop. Typing with one hand.

Going through my sheet music archives, trying to choose a song to transcribe into Finale.

Good thread, Fruitbat. I like nodding hello to my neighbors. :hi:

I already sent off four edited chapters to a client this morning and am taking a break visiting here halfway through a chapter for another.

Both doors are wide open, and the screen doors are letting a cool Willamette Valley breeze drift through the house. Kay's fixing something delicious-smelling for lunch.

Well, i'm writing on here :)
Also, i made more notes to my third and second novel.

Procrastinating on writing, while waiting in vain for my underpowered room fan to take the edge off lingering heat and humidity. (I'd open my window, but I don't want mosquitos getting in.)

Great idea for a thread.

Right now I just said bye to my boyfriend and I'm sitting at my writing desk, listening to Slipknot (haven't in so many years) and am contemplating about writing or at least taking notes. But I'm figuring I'm just going to procrastinate on writing blogs before bed.

At work. That is, sitting in a corporate cube in one of the top-rated US research organizations of one of the top-rated US hospitals, wondering how lesser known, less famous and less monied places manage to progress at all - when we, with all our apparent advantages, are so chaotic and dysfunctional.

At work. Day job. Watching the antivirus light up every time that developer on the fourth floor keeps trying to install the Steam client. :Headbang:

Sitting in my rocking chair after a long day of swimming with my family. Finished a draft of my synopsis and then hopped on here, and am marveling that my 3-year-old must have gotten so worn out at the pool that he slept through his nap alarm, and my 5-year-old must be so ensconced in his Legos that he hasn't emerged from his room. So for another brief moment before I get up to work on dinner, I have peace.

:e2drown: :) :2angel:

Sitting at my computer, checking out the forums and typing an answer to this very question.

Eating an icecream sundae out of a wineglass and considering doing some more edits on the good ole WIP.

Up at 7 AM wondering how much writing I'll do today ;).

Watching 'Til Debt do us Part' lol and surfing the web. :)

Sweltering in the hottest day ever recorded in Newfoundland.

At work, pretending to work. The good thing about writing a story is it makes you do a lot of typing at work. Which is good, if you're job is to sit in front of a computer...and type ;) See that? everybody wins! I get to write AND my boss thinks I'm writing something relevant to the job description! Woot woot! :D

Wishing the summer could be longer

Looking at friends' photos of all the snow down south and being torn between flying down for the weekend or staying in the sun. (I'll probably stay in the sun.)
