Hey look at that - I'm actually posting only a week later after my last post. I'm still reading Wheel of Time and I'm so sick of the women "sniffing" in his writing. How many times can a woman sniff? And do women actually sniff? I know I don't! I haven't heard any of my friends do that! Is it just me? Maybe, who knows, but it's driving me nuts.

Still haven't done much lately. I was sick this weekend, and I'm still having dizzy spells. I think I need more sleep. That would work if I could sleep even one night straight through. *Sigh* The next residency approaches too quickly. Yikes! I think I need someone to kick me in the ass so I get things done before I'm even more behind. *Double sigh*

Okay, that's all I have for today - I needed to vent about the sniffing. Hehehe. Happy writing all!

It's been a long time since I posted. Okay, a month and a half is a really, really long time. My first term at school ended at the end of October, and my mind is still trying to catch up. It's sad to say, I haven't done much lately with my writing, although I should continue to work on and flesh out my project. I think I'm just so beat and I need to veg to be productive at all. Well, I did revise my short short and submit it to a contest. I also have two chapters of another book written (I had to have something for workshop next residency). I haven't even done any critiques for Critters. Bad writer, bad, bad writer. Hopefully realizing that it's December now will get my ass in gear and I'll be productive. Three weeks and I get almost a whole two weeks of (of course the craziness of X-mas will get in the way of being productive then). I'm rambling. Hmm... So, there's my new post. Oh, and The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan is starting to annoy me. I don't know, but sometimes his writing just seems off. maybe it's all the head jumping he does - very disconcerting. I'm done now. If anyone has any ideas to encourage me to get out of my after term slump, please feel free to e-mail me. I like e-mails... Happy writing!
