Mondays are evil. Let's do a meme (via [livejournal.com profile] calliopes_pen):

Repost if it's okay for your followers/circle to leave you a comment telling you what the one thing is they remember you for as a writer. Is it a scene or a detail or a specific line? Is it something like style or characterization? Is it that one weird kink or trope they never thought they'd be into, but oh my god wow self-discovery time?

Today's writing:

Made a valiant effort at writing, but nearly fell asleep at the keyboard. Some notes, and about 300 words of dialogue. And now I'm off to bed before I keel over for real ...

I am in the phase of meds in which I have All The Energies -- and have been awake since about 6. In that time I have: paid bills; done a thorough review in Second Life of all the avatars who have been banned from the region where I am an admin, unbanned some who are no longer a threat or problem, and made a list of those banned by others about whom I have no details; prepared soup broth, made a large pot of barley with garlic, celery and carrots with it for breakfasts, and packaged into the freezer four boxes of leftover broth; planned out a letter that I am too lightheaded to write at the moment but will complete tomorrow when I'm not in such a hurryup mode; found the location of next weekend's Bead Bazaar so I can go; found out that Whole Foods opens at 7 am so I can get there very early on another early morning and not have to deal with a full parking lot (and get fresh sourdough bread.)

Also ate breakfast and lunch, went outside with Beautifulcat and adjusted the plastic covering the crack in the Folly so the current rain won't come in, coaxed her in, let her out again, coaxed her back in again.

And went through my usual five mailboxes of email. And posted twice to DW with links.

And it's only 2:25 pm.

I expect that when I am off these meds I'll probably sleep for most of a week.

Wanting to write and being inspired to write isn't the same, and being inspired to write and having the energy to write isn't the same, either. Nor is having deadline pressure and, well, any of the above, of course. But today? Today it was just plain "don't wanna".

I used to try and push through, force myself to write, even if it involved staring at blank pages a lot. And when I have a deadline, of course I still do - the added adrenaline from that usually does get me going. But when there's no outside pressure? Sometimes, it's good to just let myself not write. Even while writing every day. *g*

Today's writing:

Ergo: alibi sentence, more or less. A few notes and a snatch of dialogue.

Well, and I finished my [community profile] holmestice sign-up, but after that I couldn't really bring myself to do much else.

Non-spoiler reaction: Not quite as good as last week's, but still a lot of fun. Two thumbs up! 👍👍

Spoilers abound )

How can we create coalitions with disillusioned former Trumpists and Trumpistas? We need to find some way to help them put their disillusionment to good use, without losing our own path or principles. On what points do we see the same way?

This is your brain on poverty.

Yeah, in Georgia the Republicans are trying to rig that run-off election.

Bigoted religious ignorance rules here.

Jeff Sessions has no respect for Hawaii, or judges.

The demise of the Do Not Call list.

A federal court has ruled that women can display their breasts in public. What this article misses is the fact that for decades women who breastfeed in public could be arrested for indecent exposure. This ruling changes that, to the benefit of nursing mothers and babies everywhere. Now if we can just get the duct tape off the nipples in the photo...

People who disagree with Trump on Twitter, may find themselves tracked by the govt. What price dissent? Or privacy?

Remembering the world's oldest person, in the objects she left behind.

For the cost of an iPhone, a wind turbine can power your house for life.

Chechnya's rainbow LGBT underground railroad.

New password guidelines change a lot.

Indiana cancels half a million inactive voter registrations.

Major publisher retracts more than 100 studies because of fake peer reviews.

Kentucky coal company to build largest solar farm and employ all the miners.

Response to a lecturer's unwillingness to provide disability accommodations.

How the US govt. would survive the end of the world.

How the airlines became abusive cartels.

Keith Schiller, the most underestimated person on Trump's team.

The many lives of Pauli Murray.

When I'm out and about and I'm not thinking about anything in particular, fic tends to play out in my head. It's mostly not good fic - just my brain operating on autopilot - but it passes the time. Every now and then, though, a line of dialogue or narration happens that I actually like, which is why I always carry something to write.

Always, except when I forget, which happened today. And of course I came up with this line I really wanted to keep, and couldn't write it down. *headdesk* (I managed to remember it, thank god.) Does that happen to you guys, too?

In other news, I've signed up for [community profile] npt_admin (though the sign-up is rudimentary so far), and I'm working on my [community profile] holmestice sign-up as well. Hopefully, if nothing else works, the deadlines will cure me of my inability to finish anything ... Anyone doing either of these exchanges, too?

Today's writing:

See above, plus a few more paragraphs. And then I worked some more on the ASiB write-up.

Tally:
