Such a good weekend!

The last three days have been so good! Between being productive, and getting things done, and being more creative, I actually feel much better going back to work tomorrow.

Wednesday was family time. We had lunch with my daughters, who I don’t see very much since they moved out. Then d&d later in the evening, with some cleaning in the middle. So I didn’t get to do much for myself that day, but I was okay with that because it was really good to see my girls, and friends at d&d.

Thursday I woke up in pain. That’s not unusual with me. I have joints that don’t like to work all the time, and some mornings hurt. Bjorn finally talked me into going to the chiropractor and that helped a lot.

Thursday evening I was able to stream day one of my new crafting project. Hopefully I’ll post it to YouTube in a more condensed version soon.

Today I took a mental health day from work. Boy did I need it!

I spent the morning playing games, running a few errands, and just relaxing. Then I spent the evening streaming with Bjorn doing leather work. So much fun! You can find the video on demand on my twitch stream still. I might post some of it to YouTube too.

Then after streaming I edited. It was the first time I had looked at my novel in a week, and I got two chapters finished today. It felt great to get back to work on it.

So, look for me on twitch. I’m enjoying streaming even if I’m not sure what to say on there.

And look for more updates on my novel soon.

New Projects for a New Year

I bought a book. Well, I’ve bought many books, but this one is unusual. It’s a craft book with 100 small sewing projects.

You see, I’ve been in a bit of a rut lately. I’ve been working on my novel here and there, but I need something else to help fill those creative wells. Sometimes it helps to read. Sometimes play games. Sometimes go on a date with the boyfriend. Sometimes just switching projects helps a lot.

So I’m going to try something totally different. I bought a book called 100 Pretty Little Projects, and I’m going to do them. Once a week, every week, this year. I’m going to stream it to Twitch, then hopefully edit it down and stick it on YouTube. I’m hoping this will get me out of the rut I’ve been in since it is something completely different from anything else I’ve done.

So… Wednesday, here I come. I have the book, I have the fabric, and I have a camera. Now I’m going to tell that little bit of self doubt in the back of my head, the one that has constantly followed me since I was a kid trying to learn my multiplications and it was drilled into my head how stupid I was for messing up. I’m going to prove it wrong.

It’s not going to be easy. It’s really hard for me to put myself out there like this because I’m not just putting a story out there and letting people love or hate the story. I’m putting me out there, and it’s really tough to believe people want anything to do with me most of the time. But I’m going to try. And I’m going to keep trying till I figure out that it isn’t as scary as it seems.

Starting with this Wednesday! Follow me on twitch if you want to watch the mayhem!

Games, and more games

A while ago Garrett, Scott and I tried doing a gaming video every Saturday. Then life got busy for each of us, some of us more so than others, and that fell apart.

But gaming is still a big part of my life. I love it, and I spend a lot of time doing it. Less so now that I’m writing, and finishing, novels, but definitely still doing it. And I love sharing my experiences with other people who love games too. I shared a little of one of my Minecraft worlds (before the file was corrupted) and also played Gone Home.

But my youtube channel is more personal, I think. I want it to be for vlogs, little funny, or beautiful videos to share with my friends and readers, and things like that. It seemed a little odd to have the gaming stuff there too.

SO! I created a games only channel. I’ve actually had the channel for a little while, but I didn’t post things there before. Now I have a reason to. Lelula Games will be exclusively games, and game con related. I might even do some tutorial type videos, like cos-play since Gregg and I do that sort of thing.

You will also be able to watch me live on Twitch. Come, hang out, tell me how bad I am, or encourage me. Maybe give me some pointers.

Some of you might remember that I had a twitch channel before, bendaini, and I still have it, but I wanted the youtube and twitch channels to match, AND I wanted to use my gamer name. Lelula is easier to remember, and say.

If you’d like to suggest any games to try I’m all ears too. I have a huge list of them to go through.
