It’s 4:33 AM EST and I have yet to sleep and doubt I will at all the night of the Strawberry Moon. I was monkeying around with my blog page, adding plugins and what have you, when I went to see how my Monday blog post was doing.
I was startled to realize that, not only had I not done my Monday post, but it was already Hump Day! I went back in my mind and took myself through the last two days and checked my phone and it is indeed Wednesday, June 15th.
It’s been a busy week that’s for sure. Some stuff is under wraps as I don’t want to put energy out into the universe willy nilly. Some stuff you know (I’m trying to finish edits on my YA Fantasy so my agent Amy doesn’t murder me) but wait! There’s more!
I’ve also started swordfighting lessons! There’s a MMA Club oh so cosily seated in a warehouse-ish building. As I drove up I couldn’t help but wonder, Am I about to wake up in a bathtub full of ice without any kidneys?
I’m happy to report that it is, to be clear, NOT an organ harvesting enterprise as I originally feared but a perfectly reputable fitness establishment. I was there to meet the good people that make up Detroit Fight Club.
I know what you’re thinking. Swordfighting? Really? Is that your way of telling us you’ve taken up LARPing? And yes, during weekday sessions they practice fundamentals with foam swords and shields (see what I did there?) but on Sundays they don actual plate armor and wield metal swords and beat the sense out of one another.
I doubt I’ll ever advance to having real armor of my own as this is meant to just be a way to exercise while also researching training and fighting techniques. But who knows?
Bye for now!
