Partly cloudy and cool
I dread going to the theatre today.
And I feel guilty about dreading it.
But I’m finally not perpetually exhausted, and I’m getting back into the writing groove. I even found some potential job listings to which I want to send pitches.
Losing an entire day – and, looking ahead, an entire week – depresses me beyond measure. I can feel myself getting tense and edgy.
And I want to be able to go into the show and enjoy being with people I like.
Again, I feel like a wishbone being pulled in two directions.
Perhaps I should be grateful that it’s only two?
A contract arrived from Llewellyn for four articles for the 2006 almanac, due at the end of September. I’ve done most of the research on one already, and, if I pace myself properly, I can do one a week and be ahead of the deadline.
I did some great planning notes on Angel Hunt. I’m very excited about the next couple of story arcs – I would say I have enough for about the next thirty episodes, and there’s some fun – and scary – stuff.
I wanted to get out a couple of episodes of Widow’s Chamber this morning, but I don’t think I can finish them before I have to dash for the train.
I want to pace myself today so I don’t wear out and lose tomorrow for writing. I need to be able to write tomorrow.
I also need to adjust my attitude before I leave for the show.
