It's 8:49 P.M., Saturday the 9th of February. Am I getting ready to go to a party? No. A movie, perhaps? Huh-uh. Am I brewing a lovely cup of tea and pulling a wonderful novel off my shelves? I WISH! Actually, I'm taking a 10 minute break. I just 'doused' my sighted eye with eye drops because it's quite literally throbbing. I'm SO HUNGRY. I don't eat after 3 P.M., and that was nearly 6 hours ago. By 6 A.M. when I'm making coffee I'll probably stick my head directly under the dripping coffeemaker. I need caffeine! I've had under 700 calories today and my head aches ALMOST as badly as my eye. You've heard the expression, "When it rains, it pours." Right? Well, take it from me. It DOES. And over HERE, it's raining manuscripts. All are falling in a deluge on my desk. I'm tired. BEYOND tired. I'm also
anal super responsible and therefore feel I HAVE to get all my work completed before I allow myself to do another thing. Well, except make coffee in the morning or take quick bathroom breaks. I mean, there IS a limit, you know? Anyway, as always, I figured this would be the easiest way to reach everyone quickly to let you know that I REALIZE I owe everyone on Planet Earth AND Planet Mars emails. I WILL write. I promise! But it's going to be more days than I originally figured to get this editing completed. So please forgive my delay. And after I DO finish, I suspect it will be another day or two before the 'fog' lifts off my brain and my overtaxed eye. With that said, I see that my 10 minute break is over. Back to work. Sigh ...
