Up early today! Yesterday I faced the fact that I wake up a lot more easily at 5 or 5:30am than I do at 7 or 7:30 (or 8) and so last night I set my alarm for 5:15, and know what? I woke right up. And then, even more surprisingly, I went ahead and /got/ up.
Consequently, I’ve written 650 words and made bread already this morning, and it’s not even 9am. Well, ok, I’m making bread, because I spent half an hour in the shower instead of staggering downstairs to do stuff, ’cause I figured if I was getting up at 5:30 that I might as well treat it like I would if I was getting up at 7:30. Still. They’re accomplishments!
Then I came to work and started checking email, and I had fan mail! *beam* There’s nothing that brightens up a morning like fan mail! Someone found IMMORTAL BELOVED and is reading it and enjoying it. Now I wish to write another Methos novel, but I have to finish TB first and I’d really *like* to finish FOOL’S GOLD, as well.
*And*, because I have a *critique group* now (HI SARAH! HI STELLA!) I think that they might be able to help me get through what I feel is my emotional distance from the FG story, so with luck I’ll be *able* to finish it! So I think if I accomplish those two things by, uh, *October 31*, heh, maybe I’ll let myself do the next Methos book for NNWM. :)
This morning, Image pointed me at this cartoon: (not really a) Non Sequitor.
