    not a productive day

    I’m feeling better, but today’s productivity was limited to re-reading the last 75 or 100 pages I’ve written, as apparently three days off with a head cold threw me further out of the story than I might’ve hoped. On the positive side, either the book hangs together so far or I’m too close to it to see what an utter and miserable failure it is, so I’ll take what I get. I’m not really quite well yet, and I think it’s still affecting my brain. :p

    Email from my edit…damn. I just remembered, as I’ve remembered several times today, that I told my other editor I’d get copy edit questions answered by this afternoon her time. Which means I’ve still got like five hours in which to do stuff, but see above note about brain affectations…

    Anyway. Email from my editor at Del Rey indicates I ought to be getting copies of THE QUEEN’S BASTARD pretty soon here. TQB is my tenth (including the novella, which I do) published novel. I feel like I should do something celebratory! But I don’t know what. I’d like to run a good contest, and…I donno! Ideas?

    I’m sick. What a relief.

    It appears yesterday’s utter exhaustion and inability to think stemmed from the onset of a head cold, rather than me having drained my brain so utterly as to be unable to function. That’s actually a relief: it usually takes me more than 2 intense writing days to wipe myself out, and I was seriously worried about that.

    On the flip side, though, I’m still utterly wiped out (as it did yesterday, taking a shower exhausted me this morning) and in no condition to get work done today. I’m in the right condition to sleep, or sit somewhere with my jaw hanging slightly open as I stare blankly at nothing, and that’s about it.

    So I think that’s basically what I’m going to do. Man, I’ve just got no reserves left. *drags self off*
