Stupid Dreaming Thing

So you know how I said the other day that I was still dreaming heavily, despite writing going so well?

I was going to post (and forgot) that on Sunday I woke up blissful, because while I knew I'd been dreaming vividly and intensely, I was not exhausted and I couldn't remember a single detail of the dreams. I was quite happy!

But then I came home. And I didn't write yesterday. And the last two mornings, dragging myself out of bed after the very obnoxious alarm (I need to get a new one!) interrupted REM sleep, I've been cursing my brain.

Seriously, is it too much to ask for a few nights of solid, real sleep?
On the writing front...

I've been dying to get back to my books, but have let life interfere. Workmen at the house, grocery shopping, cleaning, and other obligations needed my attention after four days away. But I'm poised and ready and will try to get some done tonight.

In the meantime, I've discovered a drawback to having three WIPs (works in progress). Taking Action needs a lot cut and redone. No problem. I had an idea and was going to start over, then realized it would make a better sequel, so back to plan A for revision, but even though I knew what to do, it's hard. So hey, book 1 is going so well, I'm just going to work on that! Until, I supposed, I decide that's hard, too.

Oh, well. That's the way it goes!

It's always nice to have options but I would get so confused by having so many things going at once. But I know you have the skill to handle it.

Thanks for the confidence, Sue! LOL I am not at all sure that I do. At least, not to do it WELL. We'll see!

I haven't written since I came home either. Too much home front stuff to catch up on. I'm really going to try and do some this afternoon. *crosses fingers*

Good luck with your wips. That's how I roll. Several stories started. But then again, I have yet to finish anything that way! lol!

Catch-up sucks, doesn't it?

LOL about not finishing. But you WILL. :)
