Every Silver Lining Has A Cloud

Monday, April 25th, 2005 • 1 Comment on Every Silver Lining Has A Cloud

All news is good news tonight:

—I finished my paper with about forty hours to spare.  It’s printing as I type.  I’m not sure how I feel about it, but it’s done.  Done! [insert maniacal laughter here]

Jay is home from his third and final weekend in Pennsylvania attending his certification classes to become a SCUBA instructor.  He’s now qualified to get other people addicted to his hobby.

—In the midst of the final hours of my paper writing marathon, I found out I sold a story to an anthology forthcoming in the fall.  I really needed that because I was feeling like I couldn’t string enough words together to coherently order a pizza.

—Last night, while in the grips of paper writing procrastination terror, I received a very lovely and flattering note from the editor who bought my ghost story for the Call of the Dark anthology.  I needed that, too.

—While taking a break from my paper writing frenzy, I read that Jae has prequalified for his first house.  Very exciting news!

So, that’s my weekend.  All good things, right?  So why am I feeling so blue?  Maybe it’s because for the first time in nearly three days I feel like socializing and everyone I know is asleep…

    Congratulations on finishing that paper. And with time to spare! Doesn’t it feel great to have something like that finished? And, of course, you convince yourself that next time you’ll start earlier. grin
