I haven't done any writing in several weeks.  I'm just so tired and busy and not feeling well.  This winter has been one virus after another, and I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Why is it that the more I do, the more there is to do?  When I finally start getting a few things done around the house, that leads to more things.  If I let the clutter rest undisturbed, I wouldn't realize how much is lying in wait for me. I thought I'd get so much accomplished in this break between classes. I am doing quite a bit, when I'm not lying on the sofa feeling miserable, but just not the things I wanted to do most.  Like making progress on my novel.

The good news is that I finally got my computer and am typing on it right now. After much research and debate, I decided on a 13.3" HP Pavilion notebook.  It's just the right size to carry around and the battery supposedly lasts 5 hours with energy conserving techniques such as turning off wi-fi, etc.  It's really a sweet little machine.  I've named it Silver, because of silver case and the fact that it's like my trusty steed... "Hi, ho, Silver, away!" 

Yes, I did watch re-runs of The Lone Ranger when I was a kid.

Anyway, here's wishing everyone good health and productivity!  May we all find time to write in the midst of the swirl of activity that is life.

that is definitely miserable. I hate when I have free time, but can't manage to use it for writing or reading.

Here's to hoping you get better. And *thumbs up* to the new laptop. :)

I've been in a bit of a writing slump myself, so I can relate. Congrats on the new computer. May you write masterpieces on it!

I gave both of my classes a quiz this morning, and had an hour and a half total to work on my book on my laptop while they were taking it. Now I'm in a dead quiet library, away from phones and TV and dogs and family. Bliss!!!

"Why is it that the more I do, the more there is to do?"

I'd love the answer to that one.
