Over the hump! Wheeeeee!

Stargate SG-1: Do No Harm

It's been one of those days.

Started off well. Woke up early, but having had sufficient quality sleep. Got up. Worked out. (After a 6 week break it's more than about time. And it helps, for an incentive, to have Supernatural season 2 on dvd to cycle through. Jensen Ackles is very pretty. Especially his nose. Jared Padelicki has an irritating propensity to equate pursing his lips like a cat's bum with acting intensely, but whenever he bugs me I just look at Jensen Ackles' nose. Voila! Problem solved.)

So I worked out and had breakfast and got down to work on Chapter 10. Which lobbed along well ... and then the phone rang. And I answered it. And I'm glad I did because it was a good friend who's been having a crap time and she's very hard to pin down but sheesh! An hour later, and we got off the phone. And then it was more hassles with the theatre newsletter which I distribute as PR officer, and solving that involved headaches and muttering and more phonecalls and the plan today was to have the chapter done by 4.30 so I could stop with a clear conscience and watch America's Next Top Model and unwind then tackle the crapload of unanswered email I have yet to address and stuff and so forth.

But no. And the phone rang again and again I'm pleased I answered it because it was my editor with an urgent request and some wonderful news which involves stuff I can't talk about yet but trust me, it was wonderful. Terrifying, but wonderful.

Then it was 4.30 and my brain was melting so I stopped and watched ANTM and had dinner and fed the kids and then got back to work because BY GOD I was determined to finish Chapter 10. A chapter a day until I finish the first draft, that is the promise and I intend to keep it or die.

Maybe I should make my funeral arrangements public, just in case.

So now it's twenty to eight p.m and I am in fact DONE in time to unwind for a while, see who gets voted off Idol (I'd be happy to see Carl, Marty or Jacob go but why do I have a bad feeling Natalie is cooked?), watch an episode of Bones season 2 to really rest my brain then go to bed and do it all again tomorrow.

Ah yes indeed, the glamorous life of a writer! *g*

And I do indeed love it. Indeed I do. Even when I am yet again bleeding from the eyeballs as I write another first draft.

Hopefully I'll stick to the game plan tomorrow, sans very long phonecalls, and I'll be finished in time to get some email done and then go out to dinner for Dad's birthday.

If I owe you email and whatnot, you know the drill. I'm getting there, I'm getting there!

Have a good night, all.
