Migraines suck

Yesterday, just as I was getting ready to leave work for home, the pressure dropped. That cued an all-night-long-no-holds-barred-let’s-torture-this-woman migraine. Migraines, for those who don’t know, suck. I wound up not being able to go to Ulduar last night because all I could do was think about how much my head hurt. I was asleep by 8:30 pm, praying that when I woke up this morning, the pain would be gone.

So, 7 am this morning and a glass of aspirin down and I’m considering filing a report on God for being a lazy sod. 😛

At least it’s gone now. I just hope the weather stays calm and we don’t have any more violent drops in pressure like we had yesterday. I really hate spending my evening in bed with a cloth over my eyes contemplating whether or not I really need my skull. I’d much rather be writing or raiding or reading my new “Arthas: Rise of the Lich King” which arrived yesterday! I’ll post a review once I’ve finished devouring this book.

Latest Update Posted

I’ve just posted the first of this week’s updates to Alayne’s Story over on the WoW-Europe Role-Playing forum. Now to get cracking on The Unexiled this evening and to try to get another five pages added to Alayne’s Story this week. This update starts the Battle for Undercity and is a part I’ve really enjoyed writing.

Now if only I could find time to go back and do the edits/rewrites to Parts I and II I want to do. 🙁 Gief 48 hour day already!

Oh yeah…

It’s Mother’s Day today in the States. I just called my mom to tell her Happy Mother’s Day. Yesterday, she got the flowers my husband and I sent to her. She and my dad are going up to the lake to do some skiing, jet-skiing, and swimming. I’m really looking forward to going over there this summer and visiting them (not to mention getting to fish, ski, and swim in the pond myself).

Ulduar Is Hard

My guild has been doing Ulduar ever since it came out and…it’s hard. Last night, we spent the entire night wiping on the Iron Council and couldn’t even get Elder Stonebark down for Freya. We’re doing pretty good, though. We can clear Flame Leviathan, XT, Razorscale, Kologarn, and Aurianya with minimal problems. Right now, we’re just hung up on the Council and Ignis. We did have an attempt on the Council where we got Steelbreaker and Molgeim down but wiped with 42% left on Brundir.

Hopefully we’ll get them down next reset. It’d be nice to see those bosses dead. 🙂 I really wouldn’t mind getting a good crack at one of the Keepers. I wants my toga!

First!

Welcome to my shiny new website. 🙂 I’m hoping to actually keep this one up-to-date and to provide news on Alayne’s Story and The Unexiled more often than I have been. The forums are still there and the registration between this blog and the forums is separate. I suppose there is a way to link the two but as I have a full-time job, am an active raider in my WoW guild (maintankadin ftw), and spend my free time writing or playing Guitar Hero, I simply do not have the time, skill, or energy to combine the forums and the blog. So, if you want to post on the forums, you’ll have to register there.

The progress bars on the upper-left will tell you how far along I think I am when it comes to the weekly updates on Alayne’s Story or how far I am in general on The Unexiled. I will not be posting The Unexiled on the Internet as I do have vague hopes of actually publishing it. Since publishers tend to dislike competition with things that are free, I’m afraid it won’t be available for free on the ‘Net. However, I am looking for readers to proofread and provide feedback on it so I can improve it as much as possible before I send it off so, if you’re interested in doing that, drop me an email at alayne AT magisters-terrace DOT com.

Also, I will be posting reviews of Warcraft books I’ve read, talking about my guild, my thoughts on things in WoW, and just general stuff that’s going on in my life. You may eventually find a lot more than just my stories here. At least, that’s the current plan for me. 🙂 Who knows?

Anyhow, that’s enough for right now. Welcome to my website and thanks for reading!
