you know…  

Under any other circumstances, in any other world, a 2600 word writing day would be _perfectly respectable_. *More* than respectable. And instead, what am I doing? I’m taking a fifteen minute break and going back to work again.

I have this fear that when I finally do finish this last push, I’m not going to know how to stop. It’s hard enough to stop my brain from thinking things like, well, if I made a really hard push in August, I could probably get TRUTHSEEKER written by early September… which is…neither necessary nor sane. I have a crapload of minor tasks that need to be dealt with in August, which, if I can get them done, would be *quite enough*. But man, my brain really doesn’t believe that. It’s like a zombie of the Energizer bunny. It’s long since dead, it just doesn’t know it yet.

Back on my head. *sigh*

eta: 3900 words, and 70K on the book. It’ll have to do.

ytd wordcount: 277,900

Sounds like the SDCC trip is going to rescue you from becoming All Work and No Play lady. :(

By the way, I totally love that icon.

Except the reason to go to SDCC is purely for the work aspect. I imagine I'll have fun, too, but I'm going to work.

Thanks. I like yours too. :)

Yeah, I know you're going to SDCC to work (and alas I won't be there!) but it won't be writing, at least when you're glad-handing it with your fans and going to panels. Maybe the Zombie Energizer Bunny will get the hint and let you write at a human pace?

I can kidnap you if necessary...or bribe ted to hide your computer or something.

If it's any consolation, I'm only 2000 words in for the day, and My soul is worn to a nub.

Of course, I'm writing the requirements documentation for our planned upgrade of our ticketing system.

Want to trade? :)

Um, no. But happy birthday anyway. :)
