My second day at home. It's currently 2:11pm.
I tried a variation of the oatmeal recipe I posted yesterday on my spark people blog. (I'll repost it in a separate entry after this). I used 1/4
c canned pumpkin (not pie mix), and used allspice instead of cinnamon. I
also drizzled honey on it and sprinkled a tsp or so of brown sugar.
Tasted a little like pumpkin pie, but not much. Maybe I should use
pumpkin pie mix instead since all the seasonings are in there correctly. I liked the variation over all however as I
tend to be a person who gets bored doing the same thing every day.
Tomorrow I'm going to try peanut butter and banana. Peanut butter is one
of my favorite protein sources outside of bean burritos. nom nom.
As to the writing bit, I'm doing a free write each morning to warm up for my writing sessions
and I'm writing in two- hour blocks. This way my eyes don't get mad at
me for staring at a computer screen for too long, and I don't run out of
steam so easily.
Currently I am working on "Box of Buried Secrets", editing the first few
chapters so my beta readers can look at them. I of course think each
and every word is a jewel of the first water.
My beta readers are there to keep me firmly tethered to the ground
however and give me real feedback. Once I am about half way done with
editing the book I will start looking seriously for an agent, and
networking however I can to that end.
