tricksy writing

*waves*

I’m really busy with the day job right now. This means I don’t have a lot of time to check LJ. I’m way behind in the reading of my FL again I’m sorry to say.

The day before yesterday the prompt was, “Write about falling.” For some reason, that topic didn’t interest me in the slightest. Instead I wrote about a girl who could see the fallings — the little fairies who coax color into the leaves, as well as the springlings, who kissed the buds on the trees to make them open.

This morning I looked at both the prompts from yesterday as well as today — Yesterday’s was, “Write about a sin” today’s was “Why not? . . .”

I ended up doing a series of short pieces about different sins, using characters who have already appeared in Ester’s park — Like Marta licking the juice from an orange off the fingers of her partner Tanya (greed), and the secret box that Father Michael keeps (envy), as well as sloth and avarice and lust.

I didn’t do a writing prompt yesterday. I played around making icons instead, which I then of course forgot to load into this account. I’m feeling a need for color currently. I’ve also been taking a lot of pictures and playing with those photos. I’ll try to remember to post some of those tonight.


I continue to have health issues. One of the reasons I didn’t write yesterday morning was because I was completely exhausted. I woke up, fed the cat, went to the bathroom, then went back to bed. I was feeling better by about halfway through the day. I’m thinking that the doctor is going to need to adjust my thyroid medicine, up my dosage.

I was feeling better this morning until I wrote — now I’m completely exhausted again. I’m going back to the doctor’s on Friday. I’m having a lot of concerns with my blood sugar. I was diagnosed as hyper-glycemic when I was 20. I’m afraid that it’s come back, only worse (blurred vision when my blood sugar is low is really scary.) I’ve cut all processed and refined sugar from my diet, and I feel better, but I’m not great. Being dizzy almost all the time sucks. However, insulin is a hormone, and as my hormones are all screwed up, as my body can no longer produce the estrogen or progesterone that I need, I guess I’m not completely surprised that now I’m not producing the insulin I need either. . .

  1. Sunchokes!

    I can tell from blurry vision and tiredness when my own hypoglycemia is causing problems. I’m having good results with eating Jerusalem artichokes, aka sunchokes, every other day or so. They taste like fiber-y potatoes, almost like jicama, and are fine when steamed with butter, salt & pepper. It’s more convenient to eat them raw, so that’s what I do most of the time. Just one, washed but with the skin on. I munch on it and it’s fine. The sunchoke has a natural insulin-like pre-hormone thing in it…
