It's still very difficult for me to make ends meet. My plumbing is ancient and keeps breaking. I'm getting quicker at fixing it but that's not what I really want to do with my time.
I've started to chat and play games along with the writing. I have to find ways to relieve stress.
Working at the gym helps too. Though I need more work at working out, it's dangerous to slip on a treadmill.
I keep improving my writing skills. I'm hoping that better skills will make my books more popular.
Time to unwind with some friends.
And meet new people.
As I say, the plumbing is old and keeps breaking. I'd love to replace it but I still don't have much in the bank.
Did anyone see that major goof? Good thing I live alone, it shouldn't effect the worth of this painting too much.
I've decided to use library time to work on other skills too. Right now, I'm mainly interested in charisma. I want more friends in town and the better I am at chatting, the faster this will go.
I'm also improving at cooking but you may not love the condition of my kitchen.
This is me finishing my latest creation. I've finished 4 books in total, one fiction and three science fiction.
Celebrate with a workout.
My table seems to be getting a bit full.
Now this is something you don't see every day. I'm cleaning my kitchen plus washing the dishes. This is because...
I've invited River for a visit. You see, this is Sunday and I got my weekly royalties. My bank account temporarily had 693 Simeleons in it. Then I spent some of that.
On a comfy sofa that two can sit on. We practiced our kissing skills a bit then I cooked a meal for River.
I've started having one proper home cooked meal a day. I can't afford to eat out. And quick meals get really tiring, they aren't nearly as satisfying as a real meal.
While I was cooking, River went upstairs and started cleaning. She made the bed and cleaned everything in the bath.
After dinner, she washed the dishes and that triple dratted sink broke again.
I'm taking a gamble Mum. I've started my first fantasy novel. It's going to be far longer then anything I've written yet. And so I'll have to work longer and harder just to reach the 20% required for each advance. But if it sells well, it will make buckets more money then anything I've done.
