Waylaid ...

Just when I was going as such a good clip, I hit a major snag. You may notice some shuffling of chapters here as 6 is really 7 and 7 is really 8 and the real 6, well, it has yet to be written ... because I'm a dork! I got into a groove and left out a WHOLE BUTTLOAD of information ... and now I have to shuffle and backwrite. CRAP!!!

That has thrown me off this week, along with being away from my (home) desk for work and karate for the past three days and nights. Last night I thought I could focus and get some writing done but, inexplicably, I got in such a funk that all I could do was sit there and stare at the screen for hours. I tried everything -- music, brainstorming, editing -- but, seriously, I just think I was too mentally exhausted. Of course, my funk turned into a mini-depressive episode and a bout with insomnia that I'm still trying to shake today.

Cutting back on the caffeine today ... and having just fresh foods ... and taking a nap when I get home. When I wake up, I intend to shower, have dinner, and settle in for a few productive hours.

Of course, you know what they say about the best of intentions. *sigh*
