I have learned that there is a correlation between the amount of time I sleep and whether I'm fired up about writing or not. I'm getting a lot of sleep right now -- far more than I do in any given week. I'd say it's good, but I wake up with a headache and back problems, and I'm lethargic and bad tempered. And I don't want to do anything.
But I get to work anyway. I picked up the printed copy of Playing With Fire and began doing line edits on it while I restarted the computer a couple times, hoping to coax it into allowing me access to Word. It's a good story. I know where it's going, and I need to get it done.
Having a goal helps, of course.
So, the problem becomes a toss up between defining a goal or napping...
