I really tried to give today my all, but it feels like it didn’t work out. I published two new YCHs, but neither sold. Most of my commissioners have purchased plenty of work recently –I am sad that I cannot seem to sell to new people faster, though it is happening little by little. I need new customers if I am to properly pull my own weight.
Other things are making me sad too. Sometimes very small things can make me very happy, or hurt me very easily. Especially at this time of the month. Sometimes I’m not sure if a thing qualifies as big or small in the grand scheme of things, but I can end up sad for a while, all the same.
But good things happened today too… I exercised a lot. And I wrote a whole bunch of the next chapter of my book. I also did a lot of chores and worked on a commission. It’s best to concentrate on accomplishments. There’s always tomorrow after all.
Flat colored with gradients, highlights & textures. This YCH is being offered specifically to raise money for my mom’s move-in fund. I still need to raise $605 before October is over. All money from this YCH goes toward this goal.

This morning I managed to be out of the house well before sunrise. During my walk, I captured the rising sun. I got my almost- but-not-quite-10-kilometers in. I started the day with energy, but right now as I write this, I feel down and tired. I’m lonely again now that Christopher is back at work, and PMS is getting to me, besides.
On my way back from my walk I picked up a Cuban snail. I no longer do this, as I have too many, but finding a Cuban snail in the middle of the sidewalk by the mall is incredibly rare. Cuban snails are not generally caught in perilous situations past sunrise. This guy was a bit retracted, I thought he might have recently passed, but I took him home all the same.
When I got home and rinsed him, an unusual amount of liquidy slime came out, extremely gross, and in such cases it means the snail is dead and the body has begun to liquify. But you never know with snails. Indeed, I put him in an isolation container with some kale, and a half hour later he’d come out and climbed to the top. I was amazed.
All the same, a snail that finds itself in this sort of tricky spot might be unwell –particularly considering the deep retraction. We will see if he recovers with TLC.
Today I released a couple more YCHs. I’ll release them on the blog as well, shortly. The month is quickly passing by and the funds are not fully raised, but I am trying my best.
Anyway, writing this as I have lunch…
It’s hard to find motivation today. I’m going to try to shower, finish my chores, and work on a pending freebie.
