The Big Old Mix
This post is gonna be a mix of a whole bunch of stuff that’s been on my mind, so forgive the flip-flopping subject-wise. It’s going to be a busy day today, but I get the pleasure of eating great food and hanging with awesome friends, so in that sense I can’t really complain. In case you don’t know:
It’s been a rough week for me, mostly because I’ve had trouble sleeping. I’m not sure what that’s about. The last few nights I’ve been going to bed around midnight-ish, but waking up 2-3 hours later for no particular reason. This really only happens when I have a lot on my mind OR if something is off in my body. Either way, last night was the first night in over a week I slept more than 3 consecutive hours without waking up. I’m so grateful for the restful sleep – I don’t feel like a zombie today.
I’ve been back writing, and I’m not afraid to crossover this particular venture as its common knowledge that I write romance and erotica. I’ve launched the solo site for Mika Matsumoto (my pseudonym for many many years) to showcase some of my older stuff and to post some new ones. It’s still super fresh, but at least it’s getting a move on, which is much much needed. I remember writing romance back when I was in high school (some of my old HS folks will remember how controversial it was at the time), and in truth, writing was and continues to be a tremendous source of release for me. The stories play in my mind as if I’m watching a movie and I’m transcribing what is going on. I can feel what each party feels and can transcribe that as well. It’s simply amazing and I’m happy that it has returned to me full-force. I’ve been recently inspired to write from several sources, so I feel great!!
In other news, I’m going back to Japan in September! YAY!! I’ve been trying to work those details out for some time now and I can finally go. I’ve got a lot of work to do while I’m there, as this will not be just any old vacation trip. But those details, I’ll have to keep on the DL for now.
There’s other stuff going on, but I have individual comments on THOSE in another post. For now, it’s BBQ time!
