Here's Hoping for a Better Week
So this last week has been made of fail. I haven't done anything since last weekend. Well, except for watch episodes of Castle, Firefly and The Big Bang Theory. And for all that Nathan Fillion's blue-jean colored eyes do for me, inspiring me to write isn't one of them. My brain was like spongie-matter this week. I blame the lack of calories.
One of the big goals I had for this year was to try and eat better. And less. And you know, maybe some of the stuff that has green tops. It's supposed to be good for the brain, and the waistline. But I digress. What I'm saying is, I went all green and orange and dairy on my body this week and I think it went into shock. It's been running on cheap carbs and cheese for so long I don't think it knew what to do with itself. Add to that the bustle of the first week of the month with a bunch of new tasks at work, I come home a little more mentally-fried, and have a lot more excuses for why I didn't write this week. It's a slippery slope.
I'm really close to finishing rewrites on my sci fi/ fantasy mish mash. I'm hoping to finish it this weekend, and then give it another tender caress next week. I feel like each editing pass makes the story and the world stronger. And I've bought some stew meat. I'm going to make some hearty stew. Some hearty, low fat, vegetable rich stew. Good for the waistline, and fueling my poor carb-and-cheese-deprived brain.
Here's to next week being more win than fail.
