Waxing Moon
Mercury Retrograde
Cloudy and cold

I am wiped out. I don’t know how I’m going to do a full Broadway week.

I did some grocery shopping yesterday, read the paper, caught up on the exercises. I was so tired, and I’m not really sure why I’m tired, except that decision-making is exhausting!

I commented on the work in my workshop, I did some of the other work, and some more outlining. I feel like I want a few days just of silence (didn’t I just have that?) so I can hear the storylines speak in my head for a bit. Then I’ll know which ones to follow.

My real-time chat for the Muse Conference was so much fun! We had a great turn out, Karina Fabian stepped in as moderator (thank goodness, because she kept it organized, so I could actually pay attention to the questions and answer them). Good questions help make a good chat. It’s been such a great experience, all the way around. I’m already looking forward to next year!

Spent some time with my N3s (in case you’re new, those are my Nano Newbies for November). I’ve got to get the Nano ebook finished so I can post it by November 1.

I need to redesign part of the living room. I love the old sofa with which I grew up, but I think it’s passed the point of no more repair, and I can use the space for shelving, ottomans with storage space in them, and my work. I wanted to take the couch with me and try to fix it, but I don’t know if it’s fixable. But it’s been in the family longer than I have, so I hate to give it up. I’m not sure what to do – it’s not like there’s storage near by where I can stash it until I move, and it’s too big to fit into the Rabbit and haul down to storage in the city.

I have to finish the assignment for Confidential Job #1. I’ve done the work – it’s getting my thoughts in order and properly on paper that’s the challenge. Right now, my brain is mush.

Stopped in at the Virtual Party, which was fun, but went to bed pretty early.

So, according to Joyce Carol Oates’s journal, a day on which she didn’t get much done is one where she graded papers, worked on a new short story and wrote three poems! I feel like a sloth compared to her! 😉

Had a good night’s sleep and a good morning yoga session. Now, it’s off to work on outlines, finish the work for Confidential Job #1, and tweak a synopsis. I want to write some thank-yous regarding the conference. Then, I can print out the work I did in the city on Tracking Medusa, and, hopefully, move forward.

I’m trying to gear myself up for a demanding week, both physically and emotionally. But a few things are a bit clearer, and heading towards the small steps to the bigger goals helps.

I’m working on the GDR questions for 2008, and hope to post them by the end of the month.

  1. Yeah, I went through the same thing with my writing desk. I’d had it for 11 years, since we were married, and I loved the beat-up old thing. But Hubby wanted to get me new office furniture, REAL furniture, and I was VERY resistant. Furniture can hold great memories, you know?

    I hope you get through the week relatively unscathed! Hang in there!

  2. I hipe you have a good week!

  3. I know how you feel in regards to furniture. I have the old rocker my Mom used with me and I used with my 2. It’s in Daughters room now. AND I have this old table, that has no real use anymore, doesn’t fit anywhere and I am SO reluctant to get rid of it because it was my Mom’s and now she’s gone.

    I am sending you good thoughts in regards to your week! And prayers for energy for you!

    Have a pleasant day!
