teetering towards ostrich mode

After the splendid progress of yesterday, I'm a bit stalled again... Basically, I don't quite know how to get from one bit to another without a lumpy transition. Again, because I haven't quite worked out how the next bit of the book will go. Maybe I should just cut from one scene to the next, and try and pick up the pace a bit. Madelynne's book, that I'm reading now, fairly zips along and carries you with it in a wonderful pageturning way that I'm really enjoying... I should learn from her and increase the momentum and velocity of my own writing!

I'm also feeling sort of swamped again at the moment, with a zillion things I'm *supposed* to do, things I ought to do, and things I want to do... I'm getting into a bit of an overload situation again, and teetering dangerously towards my tendency to turn into an ostrich in these situations ie. hide, bury my head, ignore *everything*, and just hope some of it will go away. Obviously this is such a childish way to conduct one's life... but hey, I've never claimed to be a paragon of maturity and wisdom, even if I'm getting physically quite ancient.

Telly: nothing much today
Choc/Yummy: Turkish Delight [yes, I'm obsessed]
Mood: a bit off
Writing: grappling with GH
Reading: AGW
RSI/FMS: slightly sore

Don't forget Portia's Promos - new stuff being added all the time!

I'm Reading Entertaining Mr. Stone now, and am in awe of perfectly you nailed Mr. Vincent! I can see him in your words, it's amazing!

And it's also nice to know that as incredibly as you write, you worry here and there over bits like I do.

Don't fret, Wendy. We all have those sticky spots sometimes, if you know what I mean! Just sit back, close your eyes and concentrate on that turkish delight. (Can you remember those old turkish delight ads with the sheikh in the desert?) God. I'm showing my age.
