Gabrielle's Life and Writings

Gabrielle Lawson, writer of Fanfiction. I will use this space to keep a journal about my writing, the progress I'm making, stories I'm working on, writer's blocks I'm having, our adoption process and progress and just life in general.

I'm multifaceted and highly educated. I have a BA in History and an MA in Museum Studies. But I couldn't make a living in a museum, so my hobby--computers--became my living. I'm now a charter member Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician. I aspire to be a professional writer and/or poet. I am a Christian and have been living by His grace for the last four years or so, despite the MegaStress and now the GigaStress. He keeps me going, and displays His glory still, in my life.

A bit distracted

Unfortunately, there is sometimes a need for a lull after finishing a chapter. Thus it was after Chapter 16. Yes, I know I've got limitted time to finish chapter 17, and yet I find myself doing other things. Like working on my house.

This week, after showing someone my basement room that I'm trying to rent, I realized it needed some help. So I spent some money on home improvements. I bought some material and made curtains for the east wall in the basement. So the boarder won't have to look at that bare cement. I bought a closet bar to put up under the stairs, though we are still working on getting that put up. I (and my friend) fixed the deadbolt on my front door so now I can use it! Next paycheck, I'll try to fix the other one. We straightened up the storage are in the basement and brought in the card table and chairs. I also picked out paint for the dining room and bought it. We picked out paint for the basement but I ran out of money.

I won't start painting until February. I want to finish this story!
