Not entirely sure why – everything is ticking along really well. I’m getting my editing done, the critiques out of the way, keeping up with the readings over at the book club. The house is fairly tidy, the girls are doing well….
and yet I’m feeling a little lost in space, a little down.
I spent some time yesterday feeding info into a spreadsheet, all my stories and novels (well, the easy to locate ones), each column shows when a stage was finished. So, 1st draft, 2nd draft, edit, final, are the ones I have so far. Not that I have much in the final column, not that I can remember when I started half of these things! lol But in the long term it should give me a decent idea of when I was busy working, how long it’s taking me to get something from a first draft to a finished story etc. I think that’s useful information, and will hopefully help me keep track of what I’ve got. Eventually I’ll add a ‘published’ column, when I get something published anyways….
Not got much planned for today, write a review, finish a crit, get my chapter done and maybe if there is time I’ll get a chance to finish writing Snow White. I’d really like to, but time is always the issue and Lauren’s teeth are really giving her grief at the moment. It’s painful for the both of us – her gums/teeth and my poor boobs! (I don’t care if it’s TMI, biting HURTS, and she’s drawing blood at times). I guess that’s probably part of why I am feeling flat and down. I don’t want to stop breastfeeding, but if she keeps this up I’m not going to have a choice in the matter. I hate the thought of stopping, but she is so sore and bitey which in turn makes me sore and upset. Gah.
Okay, I’m gonna go and clean, and play with the girls, gotta perk up or I’m not going to get anything done!
