Notable Quotes

You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.
--Isaac Asimov

No Freaking Clue

Lately, I have been finding it very hard to center myself. My normal multi-tasking is becoming insane. Instead of knitting while I watch TV, I am knitting, watching TV, thinking about work, planning the next day's to-do list, etc.

All this jumbling up in my head is doing absolutely nothing for writing. NaNo is approaching and I have no freaking clue of what I am going to write. No plan, no ideas, blank slate here.

On top of that, the hardest part of my year is starting. Holidays, gas bills, birthdays, school field trips, blah, blah, blah just don't make life any easier when we barely scrape through without the added expense. I think I should get paid overtime just for showing up to work! Wouldn't that be nice?

The shiny side of the coin? I have my girlfriend, kids, and friends to keep my going.

First off, I really like the new design of the site. It doesn't hog up my processor the way the old design did with the scrolling alert banner. But this whole click two links to add a comment. It's almost too much for someone as busy as I am at night ;)

NaNo, yeah, I'm not ready either. I have the frailest wisp of an idea for a story. No outline. No characters. No plan. But hey, we've got like ten days to worry about it. No problem.

Money is always a problem. The spouse seems to think it could be solved by selling some writing. Heh. If only it was that easy.

Isn't money always a touchy subject?
But as long as the priorities of what's important in life are right (like yours), then it seems to work out somehow.
