post-book blahs

It's nice to be back on my regular schedule, with Thursdays off. I didn't do much today--certainly no writing--but I did get my lawn mowed (and part of my mom's lawn too). That counts for something. It was hot, though, and I think I drank about a quart of lemonade afterwards, so that I all but sloshed with every step.

As usual after I finish a big project, I can't seem to settle to anything else right away. I didn't think I'd have this problem after the contest, since I only wrote for two days (and edited for one), but I was pretty much immersed in the world and its characters for a full month. Now I may just start planning for my Nano novel early, since I can't even find the energy for even a short story.

Yeah, I'm kind of stuck in a rut at the moment too.

You've been writing a lot more stuff than me, though. I need to be a little more disciplined, I think.

Nah, if you ain't in the mood, go do stuff you're in the mood for.

If whatever you're writing isn't more interesting than mowing the lawn and chillin' with your family, I certainly don't want to be the guy reading it.

Go read a book, or something. Re-charge.

You're right, of course. On the other hand, when I do get into a project I get interested very quickly--I just lose interest very quickly too, as soon as I set it aside for something.

I think I will do some reading this weekend, though. Good idea!
