Forgetting to Blog
18 May 2010 in The Mistress of Nothing
I’m currently having one of those odd, in-betweeny times - not quite ready to start my next big fiction project, still very distracted by the GG and the forthcoming publication (Jan 10) of ‘The Mistress of Nothing’ in the US, waiting to have various trips confirmed, ash cloud allowing, spending much too much time following links I learn about via Twitter, distracted by various uncertainties at DMU - just plain old distracted, discombobulated even.
The cure for this will be to get started on my next big fiction project - really get started instead of fiddling about endlessly, opening and closing files, starting and abandoning research… But I’m not ready yet. Or at least, that’s what I tell myself.
A bird flew into my window today. Great thud. Scared me. But it flew off again, so that’s okay.
Squirrels are stripping the clematis of its blooms - they sit on it and pull the flowers off one at a time and eat them.
There’s a mouse in the house that won’t take the bait and instead appears at odd times doing strangely bold dance moves before scampering off again.
Looking forward to GeekCamp tomorrow night.
And that’s about it from me.
