There's nothing like the threat of work to increase productivity.

I got up this morning at 6:15 or so.

Since I decided to try to re-read Dust and start thinking about what I need to do for Chill, I have:

Put a chicken in to roast
Made tea
Eaten breakfast
Started a loaf of corn bread with sweet corn and chilis in it
Realized that the loaf was too big and sticky for the bread machine, so taken it out and hand-kneaded more flour in, subdivided it, frozen half, and stuck the other half back in the machine
Started chicken stock
Fed the cat
Cleaned a pen
Found my notebook
Washed a sink full of dishes (I typed "sing full of juices," first time. Ladies and gentlemen, my brain.)
Made orange juice
Taken my vitamins and parted out the next three days' doses of same into the thing on the counter
Thought about what to eat with the chicken, later, besides corn bread


Only thing left is scrubbing the tub and hitting "refresh" on livejournal and the Shadow Unit BBS a couple more times....

I think my brain votes for more vacation.
Silly brain.


Yes, but at least you edit out your brainfarts before you hit "post", unlike some other Famous Authors Who Shall Remain Nameless.

You make corn bread in the bread machine? I've always treated that as quickbread. Or does it have yeast?

Roast chicken and chili cornbread sounds like a very sensible meal for ungodly cold weather.
My bread machine has a quickbread setting too, but this version of corn bread has yeast and wheat flour. It's sort of like oatmeal bread, more than like corn pone.
A well-waxed cat often nicely complements the plot bunnies, I'm told.

Or is that compliments?
Would the bunnies need waxing too?
I think a "sing full of juices" is wonderful. You should write something in which it makes pellucid sense.
You could teach yourself to knit.
Why would I want to do that?

I don't have time for the hobbies I *like.*
Wow. When you procrastinate you really go all out. Cleaned a pen? You must really be desperate. Like, an INK PEN?
That's what I use. *g*

Wil Wheaton

Mr. Wheaton is saying very nice things about Hammered in his blog today.

I thought you would like to know.

Have a great weekend!

Mad not mad.

Re: Wil Wheaton

I read his blog! *g* He's a great writer, very smart and very funny.

Thank you!
Sing, Muse, the juice of Achilles...
Oooh, cornbread! Yes!!!! Thank you for the idea!

*rushes off to make corn bread, leaving Nicky to simmer in his own sing full of juices*
My brain has been taking a vacation since I started college in September... just suddenly uprooting and going downstate among entirely new people... it's overwhelming. I think my brain needs to get back into writing mode though, because I was getting so close towards having a working draft for my book...!
