I’m almost deliriously tired. That’s the kind of tired where even though you’re exhausted you can’t go to sleep. I am about to leave the office and wanted to write before I headed home and forced myself to get some much-needed sleep. Fortunately tomorrow won’t be an early morning so I’ll be able to catch up on some sleep. I then hope to, in addition to working, get some of my unpublished poems up on my site and start work on my novella.
Today was as busy as yesterday and I feel as though it’s already Thursday given my lack of sleep. I get like this sometimes. I go to extremes. Sometimes I’m just wired and other times I’m just really apathetic. The upside to this period of activity is that I have decided definitively on the title of the novella I plan to write as well as all the primary character names. I even Googled the name of the book as well as the main character to make sure they weren’t already in existence or a famous person’s name. Now it’s just a matter of finding the time to write. That will of course start when I can ensure I have had some decent sleep.
I also have a long list of poems to add to my website. I keep stumbling on more that I’ve never shared and have never even typed up. I have an envelope full of poems. Many of them are written on stationery from a number of hotels and even cruise ships. That isn’t to say that they were composed in these places. No, it’s nothing quite so tantalizing although some were. However, hotel stationery is the perfect size to carry around in my purse or even have on my night stand. It makes it quite convenient when I need to write something down. I still prefer hand writing my poems. It’s been quite some time since I last wrote one and even composed the first couplet to one yesterday but stopped. All the same, I’m really anxious to get them out there.
