I'm so glad it's Friday. I didn't sleep much last night at all. Not so much that I got to bed late -- I just wasn't at all tired. I read for a while after going to bed, trying to put myself to sleep, but that didn't work. I finally just turned off the light, around 1AM, and lay there until I fell asleep. Then I woke up at 5AM and couldn't get back to sleep.
My mind has been racing, and not relaxing, lately. It keeps jumping on things -- good things, bad things, neutral things -- and chewing on them. I can't seem to get it all shoved out of my brain long enough to relax.
Prophecy has hardly figured into my thoughts at all this week. I still have almost the full quota to go -- I probably haven't written more than 50 words this week. For about ten minutes earlier today, as I thought about going home and what I'd do tonight, I thought, I don't have to work on Prophecy this weekend. I could just blow the quota. ANd then I smiled and thought, Yeah, right.
I'll probably do half of it tonight and the other half tomorrow. Writing it hasn't been much of an effort, lately, as long as I'm willing to devote the time to it. I've been walking down my outline and just filling in the blanks on it.
Anyway, now it's back to work for me. At least I get to go home pretty soon -- another two and a half hours. Hurrah!
