Nothing bugs me more than getting a stupid cough or the sniffles. I think stress has caused this latest one however, since life hasn't exactly been peachy keen for the past year or so. My attempts at writing have suffered as well, because every time I feel like writing, something else pops in to disturb my muse. Go figure.
In any event, I submitted the first 1000 words of my book to a contest at http://misssnarksfirstvictim.blogspot.com/ where hopefully I will get some really good criticism and evaluation. My book will be post #20, so if anyone is out there watching, keep your eyes out for it and feel free to add your thoughts. I have to admit a great deal of trepidation at having other authors (or potential authors) read and comment on my book, but I know I really could use some input, so I hit the send button anyway. Now I just have to wait the few days until mine appears on the site, and then I have to give it a bit of time so that potential critics can add their thoughts. Its going to be a long week.
I have an article due (actually a couple articles due), but I have been procrastinating big time. I don't know why, but I have just not been in the mood to do anything productive lately. I have really got to figure out some way to get past my own bad habits. Note to self - kick your own butt and get the fingers to typing.
