to-day third may...

...or twenty-sixth july.

I have:
  • written 2400 words.
  • done three loads of laundry
  • folded same
  • put the clean dishes away
  • washed the dirty dishes
  • made dinner
  • cleaned up after dinner
  • brushed the dog for about half an hour
  • watched a movie
  • put the laundry away

...why do I feel like I haven't accomplished anything?

Oh, right. Because I'm delusional.

I only got half of that short story done, but as much as I badly want to finish it, I think my brain needs some downtime. I'm going to take tomorrow off, I think, and see if that helps any. I'm not sure I remember my last actual day off. (If I haven't been writing, I've been reading for crit and review, which--frankly--is just as mind-consuming. A sad side effect of writing for a living is that I can no longer read for pleasure. The editor brain is firmly stuck in the "on" position.)
