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
