Okay, the post-novel ennui needs to end pretty soon, because I have stuff to do.

The fast-paced glamorous life of the writer never stops. Because I know you care (not), and it's saving you from another six page lit crit post on somebody else's work, here's what I have to do today:


call the management company (again) about the HOLE IN MY SHOWER.
answer this pile of neglected email
page proofs for "Almost True"
sweep the floor

tidy and declutter and throw crap away
do the dishes

take out recyclables
pay those bills
call the insurance company and get them to send me a new insurance card, since I can't find the current one

eat something
practice guitar

It looks like I might get the truck back at the end of the week, and then I will be all excitingly mobile with a reliable vehicle again. Yay! Of course, once I get the truck back, I have to start up my gym schedule again. So that's a mixed blessing. [I haven't been since Boskone, though I have done some walking.] On the other hand, I probably needed the break, given I've been borderline sick and so very very tired.

Let's not talk about the $$$.

There are occasional faint flickers of the urge to write, but I'm giving myself off until the 15th, if I can hold out that long. I mean, I have been thinking about "Periastron" and Dust, anyway. Thinking is like work, right? (Then I have to put on a mad push to write "Periastron" and "Black is the Color" and to revise Dust, but Mad Pushes R Us, really.

And then I get some recovery time again. Well, I should start working on the rewrite of All the Windwracked Stars, but if I have my revision notes for Ink & Pen, then I might do that first.

Convention season, after all, is looming.
