All Screwed Up

I'm totally off my game today. I know, I know, when exactly am I on my game? But it's past noon and I still don't have this blog post done. I was up late last night so slept in too much this morning. My fiance is off work today so that's throwing me off. It feels like a weekend. We just got back from the gym, so my usual 8:45 shower was an 11:45 shower. I haven't had any coffee or food so I'm starting to lose my sanity, I think.

I also wanted to do a lot of writing this weekend but that definitely did not happen. What I did was watch a whole lot of Harry Potter. I really wanted to get some work done on the first chapter for UL, because now I'm thinking it might be easier to edit in order? Or at least try. Really, I should just work on whatever part is inspiring me the most and to stop avoiding it altogether. Getting anything done at this point would be great. Rewriting a random sentence in any chapter would at least be progress. But no. Still avoiding looking at it.

I kinda sorta have a plan for the rest of the week. I've got a book review to post on Wednesday (that's assuming I get it done...but I did finish the book, at least!). And then maybe on Friday I'll post a piece of flash fiction. Well, it may be too long to be called flash fiction (I'm new at this...) but short enough for a blog post, at least. Adam has been chewing on my brains lately so I've been working on a little something from his point of view (CURSE HIM). He's probably got Jordan tied up somewhere...who is probably enjoying it. Of course, telling you that I'll post something has probably squashed all possibility that I will actually get it done in time. We'll see.

All right, I'm gonna go take a deep breath and have some coffee. In the meantime, here's a picture of my cat being ridiculous:

  1. My kids have just broken up from school - I'm expecting six weeks of being all screwed up. Sometimes, routine is required. The rest of your week sounds sorted though. Cute cat :-)

  4. Sometimes it's hard not to watch a lot of Harry Potter. I'm with Patricia: do over! Your cat is adorable. :)

  5. Aw, your cat is so cute. And it's okay to take a break from writing every now and then. You're definitely dedicated to your work, so you deserve a break.

  6. I hope you ate soon! Nothing makes me feel more like a zombie if there's nothing in the tank. =) And I can always get sucked into watching HP!

  7. Your kitty is cute.

    That was my Monday. I was restless and unmotivated and got nothing accomplished.

  8. Cute cat! This is me everyday. I always find other things to worry about/do besides what I should. Hey, a Harry Potter weekend sounds good to me. We melted at the zoo.

  9. Looking forward to reading your piece of Flash Fiction.

    If you're not already, you should come over to Flash! Friday (www.flashfriday.wordpress.com) and take a stab at entering. I've been using it for just over a year now and it's so useful for keeping me writing, especially when my enthusiasm for my WIP falters.

  10. Go eat something!!! (Well,OK, I know you posted this a couple of days ago, so you've probably eaten...) When I work out and am hungry NOTHING GOES WELL. Big hangry time. Eat, have coffee, and life will seem much more manageable.

  11. I TOTALLY feel you. My baby has been up for the last 3 nights in a row, and I'm like "Productivity? What's that?" I'm lucky if I get myself fed, say nothing about cleaning house or writing. Sending virtual cheese and hoping your week gets back on track!

  12. That's a cute picture of your cat. ^_^

    Sometimes breaks from creating are necessary. Gotta refill the tank and watch some HP. :)
