in the woodwork...

Sometimes, I wish I could hide in the woodwork. Might be fun. I'd pick a piece that had some great carved detail--I'm sure I could entertain myself for a few hours or days.

Last night I couldn't get to sleep because my creative mind would NOT shut off. Too much reading. And now, I'm up but have no place to go since the mall is slow and they canceled the shift I managed to scrounge up. I should write. I have my plot ninja and he usually helps out when my muse is still asleep, but I'd rather mope for a few minutes.

Okay, no more self-pity wallowing. I guess it is time to face the world. And maybe find some lunch!

because I always have something to say...

Actually, I don't. I have nothing pressing to blog about. That isn't to say things aren't happening in my life, they are just super boring or require way too many details.

But I feel like people deserve to have a semi-updated post here, so I'm posting. Let's see-what can I tell you?

Well, I've been at Panera today since 11. It is now after 3. I'll be here for a little while longer, depending on when Miss Pottenger wants to watch Dr. Who. I should be writing on my kingdom story, but I'm not. I am avoiding it because it needs a major overhaul and I'm not sure I'm ready. But my critique group is going to be pestering me for the next bit, so I can't avoid it much longer. I've given lots of feedback to the teens. Some of them are writing amazing stories for our July project. I'm ever so proud of them.

I've read over 50 books this year. I'm on 52 and 53 I think. My goal (if you forgot) is 100. So I'm pretty much on track.

I think I need the peace and quite of my own house, but I don't have a fountain of Mt. Dew at home, so I'm still at Panera...wasting time.
