The Dream Doctor

10:04 a.m. So dailies was nothing I should have been waiting up for but I did, nonetheless. I stayed up until going to bed around 4 a.m. and woke up at 9 a.m. which means I'd likely want to head BACK to bed soon.

I've searched my social networks, watched Good Mythical Morning where Rhett and Link shared old hairstyles, had water and string cheese because I need a better diet, Praise God, and updated this journal from where it was left off yesterday when April got on the computer.

I hope to edit the fourth Chapter of the The Dream Doctor. It was already printed out but that was before I came up with a scene that will be more plot key as to how the characters are related to one another.

Out of nowhere, it turns out Octavia is Sauvignon's grandmother. Sauvignon's Mother was killed by Brian, a rogue deciever, so he could win his way into the grieving Castle of the Dream Doctor. Meanwhile, Octavia mourns the loss of her daughter and even agrees to help Brian, unknowing that he is the murderer, with the promise that he can bring her daughter back, which he can't and won't do. So, after learning this, she switches sides and joins Sauvignon and Tourniquet against Brian and in the end. When they both die, Octavia adopts their daughter, Sterling, as her own.

This did not come easy, Praise Jesus. You're talking about something intertwining with  over a year, maybe two years, of a developing novel but I think I got it down. This is mostly taking place in the second half of the book. Right now I'm on the first half where they JUST meet this woman, not knowing who she really is.

Sauvignon's mother, ont he other hand, died in Illusionate and was in a Coma on Earth, having been given a body, all up until the first time Sauvignon woke BUT her Mom is also a bit 'not all there' in the mental sense.

Still, Sauvignon gains valuable information about this woman's life which ties into her own.

Dude, not yet written. None of this. It's all plot ideas which I hope to stick to. Writing is HARD.

I had this dream that I was telling Anne about how we don't talk much anymore the way we used to (and in real life I feel this was which makes me kinda sad), and I texted her, in the dream, about how sad it made me. It came off, to me, as a bit too much to be laying on somebody.

 I think we talked about JRM somewhere in there.

There were these pictures, it's coming back to me, and I was trying to share them but that's all I recall. I spent the morning trying to remember this dream, knowing I dreamt about the guy, but it didn't come like this until now.

I think the pictures thing was mostly because there's this film called Boyhood, which I think I dreamed of as well, where it was filmed watching a child grow into a man, and took many years to make. And in the props I saw online, there was this one photo that looked EXACTLY like JRM laughing, though it's obviously NOt him, it still did. for copyright reasons, I can't post it but I saw it. Yeah.

10:25 a.m. Done with the journal, done with the blog, let's get posting. God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves! Hallelujah!

10:51 a.m. Watched this cute video of second graders trying fancy cuisine. So adorable!! Also browsed neopets but I really need to hurry up and get out of the computer chair for the moment. Oi.

12:29 p.m. Spent the past couple hours writing the full summary for my entire novel, also working in changes I want to make. Chapters 11-21 are painfully short and will need to be added to quite a bit, others need an entire rewrite, but I'm overall pleased. Need a computer break. All Glory, Praise, Thanks, Kingdom, Worship, Grace, Power, Might, Knowledge, Mercy, and all things be to God on the Highest forever and ever in Jesus Name, Amen! God is Able!

4:19 p.m. I slept about four hours. Donny arrived and they chatted outside my window..again. So I got up. Pizza is about to go in the oven but I'm hungry now..so I made a bowl of white cheddar popcorn. 

Finished that. Would like to edit my book now. Chapter three edits.....this is a great book.

7:28 p.m. I edited both chapter three and four on a disruptive bladder but it's finally working out. I can't believe it took well over a year to fully map out the story, with hopefully room for more plot to spare, but this is turning intp a success. God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves! Hallelujah and Glory to God ont he highest forever and ever in Jesus Name, Amen! God is Able! 11 Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. 12 There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor? James 4:11-12

8:13 p.m. Re-edited chapter three so I think I'm pretty satisfied with it for now. Ready for a boneless fried chicken dinner. Va-room!!

8:32 p.m. I gotta say, that was delicious. They added Mysteries at the Museum on Netflix! FINALLY! Can't wait to watch. Not right now, but soon. It was my favorite cable show.

8:44 p.m. I've been playing with the cat. :D Put a sheet over part of his box to see if he'll like it.

9:40 p.m. After playing with the cat some more, I re-edited chapter four. For the first time in weeks, I can let myself move on to the exciting editing of Chapter five.

April, sadly, did not get any chicken because we thought she already made a plate and she's angry, about multiple things. I've grown to find this anger predictable as it happens, if not once, then multiple times a week. She's silently...stewing...in it. Rob offered to make her more food and we apologized but she seems to not be in the mood for either.

If anything, this was expected. I literally do not go one week without it happening, hard as I pray otherwise for just one seven day period of joy for her but it just doesn't want to happen.

It affects me as well because it puts a dark cloud over a peaceful house, generally. I have to struggle to keep my mood up. I love her to death but April is not a picnic.

It's not like I'm MAD at her for it, I'm not. All I'm asking from God is one week where she can actually be happy. It'll help me have a peaceful week, too. Oi. Anyway...Chapter five. Woot?

9:59 p.m. I just checked the AOL news. Jimmy Carter is 90 and running for govenor, go him. I still want to edit, I assure you. P.S. On a random note, I'm a Coco Rocha fan. :) And...while I was surfing, my cat decided to come sit on my belly, RIGHT in front of my netbook..again. Once I was done petting him though, he got up and moved. I need a bathroom break...and a computer break. God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves! It's been too quiet here. God is Able! Bye! 50 “For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” Matthew 12:50

10:47 p.m. Listened to some Christian music and just tried to take a little cat nap. God Bless, Jesus Loves, Lives, Saves! Hallelujah! God is Able!

10:54 p.m. Web browsed.

11:59 p.m. I spent an hour adding a new character, Tenderwood, to Chapter Five and the book still has to undergo some editing...later. April went to bed, still not in a happy mood, just stewing in silence, Hopefully, she'll feel better by morning. Speaking of morning though, it's Midnight.
