Caffeine system failure in three…two…one…

After a weekend spent mostly offline, I have finally almost caught up with everything that happened online over the weekend.  I still have a ton of reading to catch up on, but other than that, I think I’ve managed to update myself on all things social.  Maybe.

Zzzz.

I seem to be suffering from some serious sleep deprivation, though, as I can barely keep my eyes open.  I barricaded myself in my room over the weekend with the a/c, my writing supplies, no internet, and plenty of caffeine so that I could get some work done on The Lokana Chronicles.  My wonderful Seymour kindly took care of Cricket and Thumper and left me alone for the better part of 48 hours, but sadly, I didn’t accomplish nearly as much as I wanted.  I made lots of progress, I just didn’t meet my goal, which was admittedly steep.

But!  I feel like the progress I did make will vastly improve the story and it really felt wonderful to be writing again.  Aside from blogging, I haven’t done much writing lately and I’ve missed it.  It was mentally exhausting trying to figure out how to flesh out my story without making it seem like I was just throwing in a lot of filler, but the results are worth it, in my humble opinion (at least, I hope so).

And now, I must be getting back to the grindstone.  My posts may be a bit more sporadic over the next couple of weeks; between revising The Lokana Chronicles and preparing for our next family camping adventure (coming this weekend to a campground near you!), I will be offline quite a bit for the next little while.  But don’t worry – I’ll make sure to fill you in on all the adventures we have, as I’m sure there will be plenty!

Have a great week!
