taintor 02

Friday night, pleasantly chilly

Last night, my parents went out to see Phantom of the Opera (the show. Which I have never seen, by the way), so I was in charge of feeding the dogs for dinner. Scout and Shelby just get dry puppy chow, but Sam gets half a can of something or other every night. I mean, I guess, because half a can (with a reusable plastic lid) was sitting on the counter. I put it in his dish and stood back. Collapse )

Meanwhile, this week in writing... has not gone so well. It hasn't gone so badly, but it hasn't gone so well, either. Earlier this week I was flush with the idea that finishing the novel would take a lot of work, but it was doable--a happy medium of realism and optimism. And then I started getting moodswingy and panicky again. I've just kept plodding on regardless, but it's kind of discomforting to realize I'm probably going to spend the rest of my life going through this exact process over and over again.

And now I have to decide if I want to try to write more, or just pack it in for the night and start fresh tomorrow. By the way, redscorner mentioned that she's created a Yahoo Group for Project Download if you'd like a daily reminder to click.
