Five-Thing Thursday: January 5th.

Welcome, everyone to another Installment of Five Thing Thursday!

Here are Five Things that I want you to know:

Thing #1: Typing has become the perfect barometer for when it’s come time to trim my fingernails. I can’t imagine how folk with longer nails can do it.

Thing #2: Chasing what you want comes with an inherent risk of failure – well, maybe not “Capital-F” Failure, that only happens if you give up – but there’s a learning process that’s both necessary and wonderful that comes with mis-steps on the path.

Thing #3: Random daily delight: A good drumline in a song.

Thing #4: What’s playing on the Mental Jukebox today: Primal Scream by Motley Crue

Thing #5: Remember: It doesn’t have to be perfect. You just have to be consistent with your attempts at it.


What am  I reading this week?

The Red Scholar’s Wake by Aliette de Bodard

Becoming by Michelle Obama

The Emperor’s Edge by Lindsay Buroker

How have I been relaxing and refilling the well?

As I said last time, I’m making some changes in the attempt to get the best possible rest I can. Perhaps prompting this week’s Thing #5 entry, it hasn’t been as consistent as I’d originally planned. There’s reasons for that, which I won’t get into, but a planned divergence is perfectly fine. I’m still averaging over 7 hours of sleep a night, so I’ll call that a win.


If you’ve read, and enjoyed any of my books, please consider leaving a review:

Until then…

Be safe. Be Excellent to each other.
