Ice Day

Ice day isn't as fun as snow day. We had some freezing rain overnight, which means this morning the roads (and trees, and houses, and power lines) were glazed over with ice. Fortunately I was off work today anyway (and my college wasn't even closed, just on a two-hour delay) and also fortunately, the temperature has already warmed up above freezing and the ice is melting fast.

Tomorrow's my last day at work before I get a two-week holiday! Of course I have to work ten hours--we've extended the testing center hours to make up for being closed Monday--but it shouldn't be too stressful and then I can recharge for the remainder of the year. I have a lot I want to finish up before 2011, mostly revisions. My main goal is to have the still-untitled romance finished and ready to sub in January. I also want to do the rewrites of The Trickster Society (I've already started and it's going to turn into a major rewrite, I think).

The hard part is keeping to a writing schedule while I'm off work. Structure helps me stay productive. NaNoWriMo helped me a lot this year, just by getting me back into the rhythm of writing every single day. Now I need to make sure I stick with it.

I'm the same way! With nothing but writing to do, I manage to sit around and do jack shit most of the day. I could read, I could watch movies. And yet....

I've been knitting and watching TV. Kill me now!

Yay! Vacation!

I'm a firm believer in procrastination . . . don't sweat it, your keyboard isn't going anywhere . . . but neither are all those lingering plot-holes. But at least you're contemplating those plot-holes, which makes the keyboard ready for that inspiration of furious fingers!

I'm good at procrastination too. Too good. :)

NaNoWriMo got me back into the rhythm of writing too...unfortunately, I appear to have fallen out of it again.

It's so easy to fall out of certain habits, and so easy to fall into others (like eating too much chocolate).
