I could have posted this, stolen from Julie, here, under the title "The Same Thing Happens Every Night". It's so, so true.

Ugh! I am such a
Ugh! I am such a slacker! Slack, slack, slack, that's me. Did I do any outlining this weekend? No, of course not. As I told Julie, on Saturday I got ambushed by housework and my new DVD player (I got it for Christmas, and just got it working on Friday) -- well okay, and a little bit of EverQuest, too. Then on Sunday, when I was going to chain myself to my computer, I woke up with a migraine that wouldn't go away all day, so I ended up lying on the couch and whimpering a little -- although I did get my laundry done too.
On the good side of things, "The 10th Kingdom" was better than I thought it was going to be. Well, the first disk, at least. I won't have the second disk until next week sometime. I think NetFlix will be the death of me.

After a burst of common
After a burst of common sense, I took The Host off my list of projects for Jan/Feb. There's just no way I'll have time to do more than one project.
Well, it's safe to say
Well, it's safe to say that neither Julie nor I got much writing done last night, but she helped me brainstorm huge portions of Memory's Price (and hey, that might even be the title after all). I have a roadmap by which I might be able to outline the darn thing this weekend. Whee!
The only cruddy thing about getting together with Julie last night was that Starbucks closed at 10. How crappy is that?

Ah, it's good to be
Ah, it's good to be back. Excerpts from an AIM conversation:
naiad: I just want to do something. I've been so slack on my writing, and I don't even have a good excuse like you do!First writing meeting with Julie tonight. Yay!
lisa: Heh. The good excuse doesn't hold a lot of water. Just a couple of ounces. ;-)
naiad: Better than that ring left behind by evaporation. :-)
