It's amazing how much a bad night's sleep can throw off my day. There was a massive thunderstorm on Friday night, that woke me up twice in the early hours. It meant I was sleep deprived when I got up on Saturday (having been woken twice more by my partner getting ready for work, and a hungry cat). I left my ability to sleep in somewhere in my twenties, the best I can manage is coffee and internet before I get up these days, so I spent most of yesterday stumbling around in a grumpy haze. In the end I spent the whole day reading, punctuated by occasionally getting up to poke the washing machine or the dishes. Probably a good thing in the end. It forced me to take a day to relax, which I don't do often.

Today was more productive. Lots of cleaning, lots of research, lots of admin. I'm applying for a promotion at work so spent some time on the application. I'm also pondering opening an online hobby business, selling handmade jewellery. Still not convinced it will be worth the work and costs though, and it's not like I'm spending enough time writing already.

There are two things left on my To Do list for the weekend: book train tickets, and play computer games. This might be an either/or thing given it's now the evening. It's a bank holiday tomorrow, though, so I can bump things if I have to.

I've been looking at doing covers for money. (I'm not good enough yet and don't know the tricks of the trade, but my work is better than some of the ones I see for sale, so...) I'm actually learning it because I'm making some of my own covers, though.

But as hard as it is to make money in the writing industry, it's tempting to find some other way to rake the $$ in.

Ah! So you'll make them anyway. Selling seems like a perfectly acceptable thing to do, then...
