Manic Monday
Monday, June 21st, 2010

I love Mondays. Usually. I know that sounds crazy to all of you who have Evil Day Jobs, but Mondays, for me, are normally filled with bright shiny possibilities. Sure, I don’t have to travel farther than 25 feet to get to my office from the bed, but Mondays still count.

This Monday is more like my usual Sunday—the day I clear up any messes, run errands and get ready to hunker down for the week to write. After today, everybody is back where they belong and my world returns to normal. I have two family members who went away this last week to opposite sides of the country, and I don’t like that one little bit! I need the people around me to keep to their routines so that my chaotic life and thought processes aren’t excited by their unpredictability.

Selfish, I know. But I never claimed to be perfect.

This morning, I have to head over to babysit for SIL so that he can take my new dog Fenris to the vet to get his junk removed. Then I race back home and try to get some pages under my belt before heading to the airport in the afternoon to pick up the red-headed hellion. I’ll be lucky to write a paragraph. I need isolation to get significant pages done, or a coffee shop where no one knows me.

I’ll celebrate Monday tomorrow.

    Lisa, you’re right! But I did manage to finish reviewing the galley of Cowboy Fever (due out November 2nd) while I babysat this morning. And I just finished chapter 2 of the werewolf quickie I’m working on. Yay!Not so bad since I really don’t have a lot of time today to work.

    A werewolf quickie? I could go for one of those right now. I plugging away with reading the anthology Naughty Bits. Might be half way through.

    I even busted out my homework to try and get some it of done. The plot lines are hard but I’ll get there…. I hope.

    Oy, your Monday sounds like a whirlwind, too! My head’s spinning just reading about it :) Happy writing this week–and congrats on Un, Deux, Trois, Menage–it’s on my TBB!

    Brandy! The plotlines aren’t for everyone, but give it a try, even if you wind up with lots of white space. It’s a good exercise. I have confidence in you!

    Fedora! Thanks so much! I hope you enjoy it!
