call of mordicai


Okay, Livejournal. Life. Talking about something that isn't books, or games. Yo. So I'm upstate. Took off Friday & here we are; us, Kira & Nino & Olivia, & then Joe & Leigha. You know what is up with me: new job. I'd already planned this vacation before we left but it meant missing the second all-staff meeting of the imprint; the head of editorial missed the first one, so it's no big deal, but I'm high investment. I am over-thinking it. It's nice to have my work stress be something I can actually try to solve-- viz, "how do I marketing, publicity, ops, etc?"-- & not frustration for being stuck in molasses. So that's my usual week these days: I ask "here is a foundational question about how to do a thing...pretend I know nothing & explain it to me?" & then run around like a chicken with my head cut off until I have enough answers to fake it till I make it. Health-wise, I am still a bit of a mess; PTSD anxiety kicks in around four or five every morning & wakes me up with a pounding heart & wide eyes. Spend an hour awake & then back to bed, if I'm lucky. Not too bad, I think slowly healing; I need to turn a corner & start going to the gym more. At all. So anyhow, sorry-- I am rambling just to be typing. I haven't been writing, though I have been creative lately. Working on an idea with Terra, too. So that's the short story of what is up with me. I'm upstate relaxing, but really thinking about work. That's okay, because work consists of thinking about science-fiction & fantasy & then my opinions are the trim-tab that tilts the rudder. I've totally bought the party line: our stuff is real cool. For real. Otherwise Jennifer has been back & forth to Atlanta a lot, but as long as I get enough attention, I don't mind. We're currently prepping dinner-- grilling burgers-- & talking about playing Settlers of Catan. Oh, & I've been playing Demon's Souls, since I don't have a PS4 & can't play Bloodborne yet.
