Another day. . . .

I'm not in a good mood tonight. I'm just not and there isn't anything much that can be done about it. I've had a somewhat miserable day, my arm hurts, making it hard to write and do any other kind of work, and my list of things to get done tonight is not getting any shorter. A program has crashed twice for no reason, and my brain is not connecting with the actual work I need to do.

I hate nights like these. I need to get a great many things done before I can even pretend like I got work finished. Snarl.

So what am I doing here?

Trying to work out why I'm in a bad mood and get over it. Yes, my arm and neck hurts. It's done that before, and I manage to get over it. The weather is lousy -- damp, humid, and uncomfortable, but not miserable like it could be. We are not having the excessive heat of the east. In fact, it's been just the opposite, and cooler and damp for days. We've had thunderstorms every day for the last three or four days, but they've been mostly noise and not even a lot of rain. It's just humid and damp and uncomfortable. I mentioned that, right?

So bad and good there on all counts, even if the bad is at the top of the list at the moment.

Writing is not going as well as I would like. That's kind of an understatement, but we'll leave it there for the moment. I'm sure it will pick up soon. I have ideas, and if I can just get some of the rest of my life in order again, I'm sure they'll all come leaping up and drive me nuts. One at a time, please!

Am I going to be able to take part in Labor of Love/Unfinished Business this year? I don't know. At this point I'm not even certain about NaNo.

I got some nice photos today, though, like the flower with raindrops one I'm using here. The lighting, with the nice grey overcast day, was perfect. I really enjoyed it for that part, at least!

I give up. I really don't have anything interesting to say!

Lovely picture! I hope your arm feels better soon. I hate funks like that, but - (this may not work if your not a fan) I always put on the Beatles and read something light when I'm not so happy. Generally, it doesn't help me be more productive, but at least I'm in a better mood. :D

Hope things look up!
