it’s Thursday afternoon

I’ve just dropped Ivy off at daycare, Lauren is sleeping (and hopefully for awhile because the poor thing is completely exhausted), and after I’ve eaten and settled into being at home, I’ll be attacking the writing I think, or the editing, or both. We’ll see.

The last day and a half has had me being out of the house for a lot longer than I normally am, and wow, I’m exhausted. Spending three hours yesterday morning with over 40 children and about 20 adults was confirmation that I am indeed an introvert, and I think that it may take me a couple of days to fully recover. So I’m enjoying an hour of solitude, providing of course that Lauren sleeps that long.

<long sigh> Yeah, I need to unwind.

I didn’t get anything done yesterday writing related, just was not something I could even think about, I went to sleep at 8pm! And today I forced myself to get the housework done before we went out for the morning, knowing that it would set me up for getting something done this afternoon. Though, I have to admit to feeling like I would rather lie on the couch and watch trashy TV, I know I’ll feel better for having another chapter edited and out of the way.

Best get to it, or the couch is going to be an even bigger temptation.

  1. Look at it this way: the sooner you get that chapter done, the sooner you can curl up on the couch and indulge in some trashy TV. Of course, I’ve got my work cut out for me tomorrow. Got to rewrite a scene myself.

    1. Thanks. Catherine told me exactly what was wrong with the scene, and now I have some ideas for the next scenes.

  2. I’m currently in the same boat – work this week has just flattened me and I haven’t written a thing all day, or yesterday. I’m starting to stress, but I also just want to curl up on the couch and zone.

    So I can sympathise! I hope you find time to yourself 🙂
