I think I can write today, but man, my little brain is feeling pretty spongy right now. I have to convince myself to go do my Pilates. I’d been planning to swim today, but I’m more than half afraid that if I do I’ll lose the afternoon’s writing to unconsciousness, despite the word wars. I don’t know. We’ll see. God on a stick, though. I’m just…blblbaaaaggh. *stares around mindlessly*

Today is International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Wretch Day, and I’d had a very vague hope of writing something new for it, but the words “bahahahahahahaha” come to mind. I suspect the best I can do is point you at my writing page, particularly if you missed the series of short stories I wrote last fall. I’ll look on Nook, but mostly what’s there are opening scenes and chapters or sequences from books I intend to write, rather than any complete bits of fiction.

I am going to try very hard to stay away from sweets over the next 7 days. The truth is that I may very well not last through today, much less a week, because I’m giving writing pretty much everything in my soul right now, and I might just flat out not have anything left to lend to the deceptively simple concept of “just don’t eat any sweets”.

Okay. Exercise, and then food, and then work. She said encouragingly, and gently, to herself.

Make sure you have fruit or nuts or vegs or something handy in case body takes over control while your brain is working! Good luck :)

Agreed. Fruit, nuts, something to munch on. I cannot believe the work you've done this week AND while being active. Honestly, pat yourself on the back.

I haven't been very active. And god, i'm tired. o.O

Brainwork is active work -- brains need calories to be productive, too. Me, I can't string two words together when on a serious diet. Which is one more reason why I've come to avoid them and try for lifestyle changes instead. Zombie programmer==not very productive.

Just out of curiosity (I have neither lectures nor remedies to offer, I just like to know what people eat), what sweets do you eat from choice? (Me, I have chocolate-coated coffee beans always on the desk here. In a locked container these days, or Mac sucks all the chocolate off.)

oh, anything...Ice cream is a recurring favorite right now, but I'm easy. If it's sweet I like it. If it's chocolate I like it even more.

Your cats are truly bizarre.
