thinks & thinks  
thnks to do today:

- laundry
- a little housecleaning (our bathroom)
- shopping
- swimming
- work on revising this )$%(*& book

Starting to get a little stressed about the book(s). If I'm lucky I'll turn in the revisions approximately the date that the third book is*due*, but I have to throw out everything I wrote on the third one and start over. I haven't had any Insane Writing Days since I wrote "Banshee Cries" in 3 days almost three years ago, and as I was just discussing with Mom, this is because I haven't felt the pressure. How having to write 5 books last year qualifies as "not feeling the pressure" is anybody's guess, but there you go. Maybe the pressure is on now.

Anyway. Guess I better get to it.

Is this the downside of writing, what?, 5 books in a year last year? that you get to do the revisions for them all at almost the same time?

Invest in some fairtrade chocolate on Wed. as the caffeine might help.

Actually, no, I did revisions on 3 of them last year while writing others. This is the downside of something else entirely (see email).

Not going to the fairtrade shop this week, as I'm going to be desperately trying to get these revisions done. Also, weirdly, it turns out I don't much like any of the chocolate they've got!

You wrote a book in 3 days?

It was only a novella. :)
