So after two months of squeaky wheel battling to get my Morning Sky Studios domain up and running, it suddenly started working last weekend.
I wish I could say this was good news, but I’m not certain that anyone is really running the ship over there at the web hosting company. I honestly think it was an automated process rather than someone actually doing their JOB!
But, that gives me time.
I now have until May to get things all reworked and since these direct to sites that have been more focused on art rather than writing, they will actually be easier. I now have until next February to get Morning Sky Studios pointed to the new sites.
I’m no longer in quite the panic I was. I’m still tired though. The time change finally caught up to me and I found myself totally exhausted. I think I was just so physically and mentally drained, especially after having upper respirator infections weakening me too, that it just all made my sleep weird for the last week. That’s the only way I can thing to describe it: weird. I was sleeping, not nearly as deeply as I normally do though according to my watch, and I felt like I was just beneath the surface the whole time. It gave me some funky dreams too. The only one I really remember is the one where I was painting a Def Leppard cover (sort of). I had this vinyl record album that was wrapped in plastic, the cover itself was white while the band’s name was done in red, and there was only a picture of young Joe Elliott in black and white. I was trying to paint a portion of the cover in blue (on the plastic) and I had to paint very carefully because the plastic kept shifting. See? Strange dream, like I said.
I’m finally starting to feel out of that weirdness now, so I hope by the end of the weekend I’ll be back to my “normal” self.
Prince of the Ruined Land is still coming along well, though I have hit that stage of asking myself, “What the hell do I think I’m doing!?!!!??? Couldn’t you just leave well enough alone?” Yes, I do often talk to myself in both first and second person. Don’t you?
Anyway, my point wasn’t to bring a progress report — I really need to save that for Monday, but rather to share my good news about having more time. I’d love to get the codes to transfer my other domains, but if I don’t, by May it won’t be the end of the world if I don’t. I still have to go through everything, but that’ll be easier once tax season is over and my job isn’t taking so many extra hours. It makes me happy that the stress is off to get everything done.
Well, I’m off to go work on Prince. Would anyone be interested in seeing a first chapter excerpt? Let me know. If there’s interest, I might run something on a Friday. I think that might be fun.
Catch you later!
