I have so much work to do today, and my coffee maker isn’t even working. I promised myself I would never do this, but I think a keysmash is in order:
There. I feel better. And the coffee machine might be working now, too, at least I hope so, and that it will work past just spitting out half a cup and then stopping. This is another reason why I should really switch over to tea. Barring a broken stove or a cracked teapot, I don’t have to depend on a machine to get it. Nothing quite satisfies that like coffee kick, though. Tea is for later!
My beverage preferences should be for later, too, because I have a problem, dear readers. I am behind…way behind…on all my goals. There has been a cacophony of things getting in my way, things I could probably call excuses, but I think the real heart of the matter has just been a certain laziness and general ennui. I haven’t been posting in the blog much, either, because I feel that what I’ve been saying hasn’t had the same oomph as what it has in the past. The other day, though, I went ahead and finished up a little rant I had bad book covers, and I got the best response I’ve had in a while. So I just have to remember to keep it fresh, keep it interesting, and most importantly, keep it honest.
I completely missed Wednesday’s RoW80 Check-In because I thought it was Friday. That’s how off my days have been feeling. But today’s the day it changes, especially since I’ve been poking at this post for about an hour now, have had some coffee in me, and already got a great start on Battarack Girls for the day. I want to catch up with my page count for The Unknown Scourge, too, and the deadline for The First Line is approaching quickly, so I want to get that done today, if not tomorrow, so I can start editing it. I’ve been stressing out about money once again (big surprise), and struggling with the guilt that if I’m not working so much right now since summer is kind of our slow time, then I really need to be bolstering it with more and more writing. So time to stop feeling back and worrying and get to work! Wish me luck!
