the lazy days

It's hard to follow on the last post, especially since the momentum was so high. I've been draggin' my heels ever since, mostly due to a lack of sleep and a visitor in town. I've got a lot on my mind and a lot to do in the next three weeks, and once again I'm procrastinating. But I'm thinking about it all, which for me is part of the process, I suppose. So I say.

That I've stopped exercising hasn't helped. My energy is nil.

I've got any number of options: work on cover art; work on course planning; work on the manuscript; read; update my neglected website, etc.
What do I feel like doing? Going back to bed and just laying there, headphones on, listening to a book on tape until I fall asleep. Maybe a little bit of journaling.

I need to get moving.

One of my writing critique groups is getting together for a social hour (or two) next Tuesday. We do pot luck - then talk (rant, rave, bitch) about writing. This time we're going to try the open mic thing - as a way to prod ourselves towards production.

Would you like to escape and join us?? 8/5 at 6ish. Let me know.

Sounds great -- would love to! (would love to get together for coffee, too, when things are less hectic for you...) :)
