I'm struggling with a computer that seems to think it has a job other than to compute and let me hang out online, in addition to dealing with all my students' papers and projects that must be read and graded by the end of next week. Because of this, I'm not hopping around to any of the great Friday hops I usually do because I don't like joining and then not being able to participate fully.
By next week, the semester will be over and then life will be easy peasy, at least for a little while. I can't wait for a break in the action so I can get back to writing. Between dealing with the issues with the publisher (still not fully resolved, unfortunately) and my teaching workload, I haven't been able to write since Monday! Isn't that the way life seems to go, though? One week you're up above 8000 words, and the next week you're down near zero.
Sometimes you're the windshield, and sometimes you're the bug.
