I DID THE THING!!!
You know, the THING…with the type-y and the words and the putting them together into a coherent structure?
Granted, it was only a bit over 600 words, but I feel SO much better. It was a short story, something to help restart that creative process using a prompt. I am still mopey and depressed, but this was a step in the right direction. I feel a bit accomplished now.
How shall I celebrate? I am going to chow down on this here BBQ plate I got from a local fundraiser, and then I just might get myself a bit of sleep O_O!!!
I feel full of fail.
I have had a severe lack of motivation to do ANYTHING productive the last month now. My blog posts are sporadic, I’m sluggish about responses, I’m not doing much reading, I’ve given up on those contests I was aiming for and I’m falling behind in Camp Nanowrimo.
I had started completely rewriting my first couple of chapters of Book Two before sending them to my editor, and ~poof~ All my drive and motivation fled me.
I feel apathetic and lethargic.
Very depressed, that is for certain. People who know me have even noticed. I have not even gone to the coffee shop to sit down and write all week.
What’s wrong with me? Where has my self confidence run off to? My motivation? My inner cheering section?
I will extend my apologies to anyone who’s emailed me and I haven’t responded yet, and I am TOTALLY behind on reading my favorite blogs.
Can anyone cheer me up? Set me back on track? Kick me in the ass?
On a side note, Fat Cat got her usual shave down and the groomer messed it up. She’s supposed to get a ‘Lion’ cut. They forgot to shave her tail down to a little poof at the end. So, Fat Cat looks like a fat blubbery pink uddered Squirrel. >:[
