I don’t know where all my lovely friends went. I had such a happy little bunch, and you’ve all disappeared. I’m feeling awfully rejected (and not just because nobody else wanted to condemn stupid PC romances either. In fact, not just because of anything blog-related.)
I just feel bad. Not sad bad, angry bad. (Okay, maybe a little sad, but just sad enough to add a piquancy to my crankiness.) I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning and no matter how many times I climb back in to start over the day is just not improving. I’m grumpy, I’m tired, I’m impatient–just generally pissed off at the world.
I’m having a little bit of a crisis of confidence. I can’t seem to get cracking on my WIP. Doing a major edit that cost me over 5k words might be partly responsible, but just in general I’m having something of a slump. Which really pisses me off. I don’t know if I’m putting too much pressure on myself or what. All I know is the head-to-hands link is just not working the last few days, I’ve gotten maybe 2k words done, and that is nowhere near where I need to be. I’m considering starting a different project just to see if it’s some kind of slump. (I’ve had slumps, so I know. I used to play baseball with my brother.)
What do you do when things just aren’t happening for you?
(And by the way, the stupid ugly-ass new Yahoo homepage isn’t helping. Not only is it horrible to look at and confusing [I have to go through three steps now to check the US headlines] but the fucking thing moves. Every time you come back to it, the image slides down as a bar at the top widens. It is so fucking IRRITATING I can’t stand it. SW I tried the company you recommended but just got an ad for some program. I need a new homepage!)
