taking a day off
wednesday, january 26, 2005

actually no one called this morning, so i suppose taking the day off isn't quite right. but, really, had someone called, i would have turned the offer down. i was tired before my experience with the kids yesterday, i was downright exhausted afterwards. i went to bed at my usual appropriate time, had the alarm set, and was all set to get up and do the usual work thing today. but that alarm went off and i realized i wasn't ready to go anywhere. i turned it off, curled back under the covers, and pretty much dozed off and on for most the morning until saxy went to work. since then i've played ffx-2 and slept . . . a lot.

i really hope i'm not coming down with anything. i don't usually go back to sleep during the day unless i'm sick or getting sick. getting sick would be bad, so we'll just hope it was being more tired than usual that made that 3 hour nap around 10 a.m. possible. i suppose it could be the stress of the financial situation right now. regardless, it seems to be a good idea to take advantage of the day off and to relax. apparently i need it.

as for the rest of the day, the plan is to write. well, revise and write. i currently have a few stories that can't be sent back on the journey to find a good home until i've done some rewriting/revising/tinkering.

and maybe that's part of the reason for being so tired too. i haven't gotten much writing in at all since i started working. and while i understand the necessity of working, i know not writing is a bad thing for me. i need my creative outlet. ever since i could draw as a child, i've always been involved with something creative almost daily for most of my life. writing may never pay my bills, but it is what i do, it's a part of who i am. always has been, even when i allowed some idiot to take my dreams away. and lately i revise or crit a lot, but actual writing isn't happening much. so i wouldn't be surprised if that was part of why i've been so tired of late.

so now i'm going to go and finish enjoying the rest of my day off with pen and paper. okay, computer and paper. really, getting a laptop will help in the writing department eventually, i think. but for now, all i have is days off. with 3 novels (all in the same trilogy), a nonfic book, a novella, and half a dozen short stories and poems in progress, that just doesn't seem to be enough time. heck, forget everything that's currently being worked on, it just doesn't seem to be enough time regardless.

time to turn up the music!
