My journey through the world of writing and everything that lies in between…

This and That

I don’t really have much to write about…just a bunch of random stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

On the writing front,ย  I’ve been doing a bit more research. Yesterday I got caught up in researching the former foreign district of Tokyo, Tsukiji. It’s now a world renown fish market ๐Ÿ˜› Still, I was able to find a few old pictures of the area, including a picture of a Western looking hotel called the Seiyoken. And then I thought that might be a possible place of employment (at least in the first chapter) for Naomi (in the restaurant part). It’s not certain but a possibility.

It’s entirely too easy for me to get caught up in the research aspect. I should be focusing on editing (or more like completely rewriting) my next chapter for critique and more importantly, finishing the first draft.

Can we say procrastination? ๐Ÿ˜›

I keep looking for a weekend, or at least a Saturday, to spend doing one of those all afternoon writing sessions. Too bad every Saturday from now until who knows when is busy.

For example, this Saturday, some former co-worker fromย hubby’s job at college is coming to stay with us along with his wife. He has some sort of sports clinic he’s going to for the entire weekend, while his wife stays with us. I have no clue who she is, yet I’m trying my best to think of ways to entertain her this weekend. Shopping comes to mind but I can’t do that more than three or four hours at a time.ย ย It will probably end up being an great weekend but I can’t help but worry a little (it’s an unfortunate part of my nature).

The following weekend I think is free (at least right now!) but the one after that (April 11th), I have a wedding to go to. A wedding that hubby and I just were informed about on Sunday. Oh and hubby is a groomsmen in it. Can we say short notice? ๐Ÿ˜›

The sad part: I don’t even know the bride’s name. Not even the slightest clue what she looks like.

Needless to say,I’m ย really not looking forward to going to a wedding where I will be sitting by myself at a table of strangers at the reception. ๐Ÿ˜› Oh well; I’ll grin and bear it ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, no more ranting from me.

I am looking forward to dinner tonight. Hubby and I are going out to dinner with one of his co-workers and his wife. We’re going to Bob Evans, at least right now that’s the plan. I’m looking forward to their Wildfire Chicken salad ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s actually not all that spicy. I’ve actually had a huge craving for it lately so I’m glad we get to go.

I can almost taste the wildfire chicken now…

  1. that’s quite a whirlwind wedding invite! I hope it goes well…

    I can say procrastination. I should be working on a timeline as I type… but this is more fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

    have a good dinner!

  2. You know, it sounds like a lot of work researching for a historical novel – good on you for having the desire and dedication to do it right. I don’t think I could.

  3. Procrastination is my middle name.

  4. Oh man! I hate having to entertain people. A wedding isn’t so bad. There’s lots of strangers and who knows what cool info you might learn. ๐Ÿ™‚ But to have someone stay with you that you don’t know? Eek. I’d be super nervous too.
    Hope you enjoyed your salad!

  5. How frustrating! I hate it when I’m dying to write and I just can’t get the time. I hope the wedding goes well, despite your reluctance to go. Maybe you can consider that research, too! ๐Ÿ˜‰
