So, no more of that.
I have too many deadlines to wait out the days or weeks until the side effects might abate. I had a buffer, some breathing room, and I've used that up and then some.
The summer is more than a third over. It's been two weeks since we returned from New Orleans, and I've accomplished nothing much, aside from the busy work I mentioned yesterday. I began a short story early in June, before we left for Louisiana. I decided it was crap and shelved it. I began another short story a few days ago. I wrote a little more than a thousand words and it's been sitting here, waiting, with a July 31st deadline.
I will not see the summer slip past me.
Last night, because I didn't have the energy for anything else, we began watching Breaking Bad, which is much better than I expected. We made it though the first six episodes of Season One.
Now, I'm gonna go lie down.
