Now or Never

It’s Sunday night. Already. How did that happen? And more importantly… How do I undo it? Not that I mind work, don’t get me wrong. Another few hours in book heaven, a.k.a B&N, always makes me feel good. I think it’s the smell of new books and coffee. It does weird things to my system. Happy things. 😀

I think what really has me dreading Monday is the thought of another full week of work and activities and plans. Another full week of (warning: cliche up ahead) running around like a chicken with her head cut off. Because let’s face it, I’m one of the least organized people in the known world. It causes a lot of unnecessary headaches.

Hubby, in his infinite OCD/anal-ism *ahem* wisdom, has created a schedule he thinks might help me. Just trying to follow it makes me even more exhausted. Ha ha. Sad, huh? 😉 What can I say? I’m a free spirit. I cannot be chained down by tasks written on paper!

I hoped to just crash this weekend. Veg, sleep, read. Recharge, basically. No such luck. I ended up far busier than I intended to be. Not bad busy. I got to spend time with my beloved nephews whom I adore. Got to hang out with a friend from the city who I haven’t seen in months. Still… it’s nearly Monday. And I got no vegging, reading, and hardly any sleeping done. When will I learn my lesson?

On the writing front… *sigh* Well there really is no writing front. I’ve had a really crummy writing week when it comes to productivity. I’m supposed to be working on a 20k novella. The idea I was trying to shape is just not working out. I think I hate it. Which is really really bad because it has to be done by January. I’m a little concerned, but not muchly. Just enough to make me crazy. On the other hand, I reopened my WIP to add another 1k or so. Hadn’t touched that in about a week or so. So it was a nice change of pace.

I think I’m going to go clean up and indulge in a book for a bit. I totally deserve it. 😉

Hope you all had a great weekend!

    This is brilliant. I know this feeling. I get it every time I walk into Books A Million. How lucky to work in that every day!

    I hope the plans for your 20k novella come together quickly. If you hate the story, at least you still have enough time to re-plot and plan and a new story. You can do it! ^_^
