I am a very busy woman, so when my free nights (when hubby has to work or is at band practice) come along, I have to take full advantage of them and write like a maniac. Last night was just one of those such nights.
You know what I did? I got slightly tipsy on wine and played Bejeweled 2 on my new iPhone. I did, at least, write the first half of my article for NaNoEdMo, but that’s it. I didn’t even try to revise the scene from Thursday night. Because I suck. I just had no brain last night. Or energy. And there’s been no writing today because I’ve been running all over creation and out to my in laws’ to do laundry as our dryer went out. Probably just one of the heat sensors which is a cheap fix but a pain in the ass to deal with. So I’ve been back and forth all day doing laundry, grocery shopping, helping hubby super clean the house, and picking up my own birthday cake (because I forgot I had his keys in my purse when I went out to do the last load of laundry).
I’m finally sitting down for the first time all day (okay not counting that hour nap I snagged on the sofa at my in laws’) and see that my cover artist has sent comps. But there was some glitch in the system and only one of them came through, so I have to WAIT until she gets my PM to just send them through email. I hate waiting! I’m so EXCITED about my cover art.
The critique from another of my betas came in this afternoon. Maybe I’ll have time to go through it tomorrow before we haul the dryer out into the garage to take it apart and test the heat sensors.
I think maybe I’m having a hard time fully committing my brain to First Blood until Forsaken By Shadow is totally off my plate. They’re very different stories, so it’s not easy to switch from one to another. And it’s always nicer to look at the thing that’s almost finished than the thing that doesn’t seem to want to come out of my brain. In the meantime, I’m going to do my best to WAKE UP before company gets here.
