I had plans for writing all this morning. I have a deadline to submit a story to an anthology coming up, and the story hasn't been cooperating. I started it, with some writing I really like, but then it got bogged in the middle. And though I like what I have so far, it's kind of laid back. So I started again, trying to be all more in media res, and it was good, better than before, but once again bogged. The structure just wasn't exciting me.  So during all the thundertorrents, I re-imagined the story, and thought, Saturday, I'll get up before My Angel, leave the TV off, and just write.

So, my bladder woke me this morning at the usual time, but I was still really tired.  So I wisely went back to bed.  Woke up at lunchtime, and had some cereal, and started to write--and then started falling asleep on the couch.  Sleep without the CPAP is of limited use, so I went back to bed, figuring I needed another hour.  But I didn't wake until 6:30!

Hmm...I guess I was tired.

So, now I've had food, and (naturally) the season finale of the Doctor is on.  Then next I have to go get my kid from the train station.  And I still have a story to write. 

Sooner or later it has to stop being later, and start being now.

zzzz etc
I know how it is, sometimes it is just so hard to get going. Of course, if you're like me, that long nap may bring a round of insomnia, and those are great for writing.

Either way, I hope you can get back to writing soon. Maybe you'll set a good example for me :o)

Best wishes,
Liz Toll
