The Who - I'm Free (Isle of Wight)

My doctor's exam yesterday was great. I am now free to eat whatever. And before the groovy summer fresh fruit and veggie season is over.

Holy Crap!

As Ali pointed out we only have two weeks until we have to submit again. Argh! How can that be?

I wrote some over the weekend, but it was like exercising after taking a month off. My creative muscles weren't exactly happy about it. I'm not sure I stand by my decision to take said month off in order to wait for feedback. Just hit me this week that even if I was going down the wrong road, I'd have pages done. Pages that could be edited. D'oh! Won't make that bonehead mistake again.

Time to keep pushing through. I'm not sure where that leaves the revision of MMG. It still feels like that needs to be my priority, but I've signed on for CWC (FCWC?--I'm liking that Fountain Creek thing again) and it is a good thing. It's making this whole writing thing real. As Jenny said to me, "It's a job. A good job, but a job." With deadlines and accountability and all that good stuff.

So time to suck it up and just do the work. How and when to finish MMG will work itself out. And it's not like I was burning up the revisions before the new group started. So if I am serious--and I believe I am--then I'll find a way to get it done.

Nothing like a little panic-driven self pep talk to get motivated.
