An Unproductive Day

"Say not, when I have leisure I will study; you may not have leisure." - The Mishnah

Didn't get any writing done yesterday. Not a word. I probably wouldn't have posted a blog entry except I'd written it the night before. Maybe I should do that more often!

DD was sick yesterday - like praying to the porcelain god sick - and didn't want me more than about two feet away. Since there are no potties in the basement, that created a problem. Poor squirt.

I did get a lot of reading done. I read Ingrid Weavers "Eagle Squadron" trilogy and quite enjoyed it. I'm so frequently disappointed with category romance that when I do enjoy something I wonder if I'm just reading it wrong. These were decent plots with hunky heroes and good writing. So that wasn't a complete waste of time.

And I did print off all of my pre-plotting exercises to work through with TPOF (formerly Camilla's Critters), but got hung up on the antagonist again. In my head I keep thinking it needs to be something besides the heroine, but in my heart I know that she's her own worst enemy. Regardless, it makes it tough to write stuff on the antag when it's the devil on her shoulder.

Hubby has been off this week as well, and home for the past two days (boating on the others -- I don't like boating, so I don't go) which has also wreaked havoc with my routine. I don't think I've ever looked forward to a Monday so much (and I, unlike most, look forward to Monday every week!).

Hopefully today will be vomit free and I will get some work done! Wishing all of you a vomit-free day, as well.

Here's hoping you have a productive day and your daughter just had one of those nasty 24 hour bugs. I'm off to grind more stumps (well, supervise hubby) and make notes. I'm moving on to the plotting exercise, so hopefully will have something in hand shortly.

When does the other class start?

My routine was messed up this week, too! 4th of July and going to the dr, and taking mom to the dr...I decided to just READ instead. That way, no guilt for not writing!

Hope you dd is better!
