You know, I realize it’s close to the end of the day and I haven’t really posted. Not here, anyway. I did have a post on Word-Whores about writing dreams, and what they mean to me (or don’t.) And I had a nicely self-righteous rant about fanfiction and plagiarizing on my other blog (which may or may not have been warranted. Probably not, in fact. And for which I did apologize later. But still.) I hesitate to say it’s a hormonal thing, but I have noticed that I definitely get rantier during certain times of the month. One of these days I’ll heed my own inner warning and just step away from the keyboard, but until then I suppose I’ll just keep shoving my foot further into my mouth. Now please pass the chocolate before I cut you.… Read more
I actually don’t have much to talk about today – which seems to be more and more the case the last several weeks. Not sure if that means I just need to take a break from blogging or a break from writing all together for a while. (Not going to happen, at the moment, deadlines being what they are.) I suppose that’s one advantage to having a blog that isn’t really about anything. I don’t actually feel bad if I don’t talk about something Really Important or Terribly Useful. And some days, there really isn’t anything more important than man candy or wtfkry. Not that I mind giving advice or talking about my experiences in the publishing world, but some days I hardly feel as though I have the experience to really tell anyone how to do anything. But I have to admit my stress levels have gone up quite… Read more
So after a bit of a thinking last night, I’ve decided to try to pull back from things for a week or so. The truth of it is that I’ve just got way too much on my plate to manage it all with whatever amounts to my version of style and grace. I owe two people a crit and someone else a render. I’ve got to get my material ready to send out for the Golden Heart (including a potential synopsis rewrite). I have a pitch tomorrow that still needs working on. I’ve got NaNo starting a week from now. In theory, I’m running for webmaster for FF&P (which thankfully won’t start until the first of the year, I think). I’ve still got my full time job and two kids and all the rest of it. (Yeah, whine, whine, whine – I’m not even going to start in on what… Read more
So I’m sitting here this morning wondering why I went to bed at 1 AM. (Which, with the time change, is 3 AM my time). And then I lay there for several hours, unable to sleep. It was noisy out in the hallway of the hotel for sure, but that’s not what was bothering me. My thoughts just kept running around and around, mostly focused on things it’s probably best not to mention. (What, you thought I was going to be *less* cryptic?? Silly you.) Admittedly, I have a lot of pressure on myself to finish up my editing – and that’s what sucked up most of my time after Winter went to bed. But there’s always more to it than that. I won’t bore people with said thoughts, atm. I’ve already discussed them ad nauseum with some of you anyway. Still, I needed to at least talk about it,… Read more
