Mental (health) days

Yesterday, writing was like pulling teeth. It was haaard. I hate those days. I made myself do it and I got to my 1K quota exactly and let myself quit, but man. Fortunately those days don't happen often.

What did I do instead of happily writing? I debated Shakespeare. I am a Shakespeare geek. Seriously, sit me in a room full of people debating anything about the Bard's works, and you may never get me to leave. I'm very tempted to set up a blog just to talk about Shakespeare. Everyone has a passion, and he's mine.

Besides, it's good brain exercise, and who couldn't use more of that? :)

I have another run of chats and whatnot coming up with the Sweeter Romantic Notions gals in the next couple of months. We're determined to prove that non-erotic books will sell in the e-market too!

I do have proof now that sex sells. Not that I didn't know, but boy do I have it now. It's interesting and kind of painful all at once. But hey, when that's what the audience wants, that's what they get.

Oh! And. Diana Peterfreund's made a very interesting proposition over on Romancing the Blog. She's suggesting a modified Godwin's law to counteract all the romance-bashing out there. Go check it out. :)
Edited to add: Obviously I think it's a good idea. I'm not going to hit that point anymore because I don't want to be (more) obnoxious. Apologies.

Don't know if it's just the time of year or what, but I'm having trouble getting words on the page. I think my trouble is that my daughter is home from school. I usually write when the boys are napping, but she's awake then and constantly interrupting.

Can't wait for MONDAY and school to start again!

Sigh. . .

*laughs* I have heard more than one mom say they're ready for school to start again recently.

School started again for us two days ago and I am STILL having a hard time trying to get my self to work on my WIP. Sara, I think it's just that kind of day.

I just blogged about that. Sometimes it is like pulling teeth to get that word quota done for the day. LOL Have a great weekend.

I'm also a Shakespeare fangirl - the RWA Idol comment on my WIP was that there was too much Shakespeare. Bah, I say! No such thing!
