While going away is awesome, and I'm looking forward to it, the week before going away is rather less fun. I have SO much work to do. Plus something exciting in my writing life happened, and I've had to drop everything to attend to that (sorry to be so vague... I will share details when I can).
I'm spending a lot of time wide awake at 3am, freaking out about getting everything done. Then of course I'm a wreck all day because I haven't had enough sleep and wind up not getting half of what I need to get done, done. Yesterday I decided lying awake thinking about stuff was not productive, and got up to actually do stuff. Which was good, but didn't do much to alleviate my tiredness.
So... I wanted to finish the new draft of Boyfriend before I went away. Not going to happen, I'm afraid. I'm three or four chapters away from the end, but this week is just going to allow me the time to do it. It's a little disappointing, especially since I didn't meet my Christmas Eve deadline either, but I'm learning to roll with the punches and not beat myself up TOO much when things don't go as planned.
How are you coping so far this year?
