Sign-Up Week - Day 3

Good morning!

Sign-ups are continuing today: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/861191.html

We are just over the half-way point, and I know I've talked to a few people who still haven't come out yet! So make sure to get the word out that this is happening! LJ may not be a populated "as it used to be". But it's still as crazy! :)


Happy Veterans Day!

How many of you have the day off, and what are you doing with it?

If you don't - what do you wish you were doing right now instead of going in to work? ;)

I am not off today. And I work at a bank. TF is that? Sigh.

A work day for me. If I could be off I'd sleep one more hour and then get up and write/ edit on After The Truth, my book. I'd prob work out too.
Good thing I love my job and don't mind going in.

On vacation this week :D  Pie Hell Week is coming!

I don't have a working laptop at the moment nor do I have unlimited access to a desktop.  That's why I haven't signed up :/

Nov. 12th, 2015 12:35 am (UTC)
I'm feeling bummed that you're without a laptop. I was hoping we could write together.
Nov. 12th, 2015 02:41 pm (UTC)

I'd love to work with you.  Writing on anything but a computer will drive me nuts,  though :(

I would be working tonight, except that I took the week off. Working for the state can be a good thing. The pay is low, the hours terrible, and the job is thankless, but I get a lot of time off.

I'm still debating signing up. We'll see if my indecision will resolve itself soon.

*kicks that indecision out of you*

Being self-employed is an illusion. Of time off and time working and all the time inbetween.

Do you have the day off?

And THANKS to the Veterans!!
Nov. 12th, 2015 02:35 pm (UTC)
I do.

I never used to with my old job - but with my new ones, I do!!

I don't have time to play. I'm still in the middle of writing two stories for publication (one I'll publish myself in the anthology I'm working on, one I'm hoping will be accepted in another anthology, which is being edited by a writer I published in my last anthology). On top of that, I've got an acting class that is a bigger commitment than I thought, what with me having so many lines to learn and I need to figure out character for that and so on.

But I recently had a couple of people I know from the Bay Area asking me where they could learn to be better writers, so I directed them here as the place I got better. I'm not sure if they've signed up though.

My kids have the day off today so I'm looking forward to not having to leave the house and hopefully have more time for that aforementioned writing I'm doing.

Just keep kicking them until they do.

Being kicked is a big part of the writing process.
Nov. 12th, 2015 04:39 pm (UTC)
Hey, they wanna write, they gotta kick themselves. That's what I do! How else would I have managed to finish kicking out my 4,300 word story last night? XD It's not like I was writing it for Idol where there are plenty of other people to do the kicking for me!

I usually work on holidays (double pay!) but I have too many overtime hours already this week, so I have to take the day off. First order of business was sleeping in until 10:30. Now I need to figure out what else to do. Dinner tonight with some friends I have seen in a couple of weeks (they're cooking).
Nov. 11th, 2015 04:53 pm (UTC)
I should be at work. Classes are canceled but there's no rest for the wicked...except I woke up barfing and now I'm laying in bed trying not to move, because when I do, the barfiness resurfaces. :/

Honestly, I wish I was at work instead of sick!
Nov. 12th, 2015 12:34 am (UTC)
I hope you feel better soon.
Nov. 11th, 2015 05:10 pm (UTC)
I am not wishing for anything right now, because (A) as a New York State government employee I am off work today, and (B) I am now part of an international writing team that will *DOMINATE* LJI like it has never been *DOMINATED* before!

Life is good. :)

I did not have the day off, but my daughter did. Fortunately, her after school place had activities today, so off she went.

I could use a nap.
Nov. 12th, 2015 02:14 am (UTC)
I had the day off. Slept in a bit, bopped around Facebook, did some shopping, made dinner... not much of great import. :)
