*throws confetti*

Just hit 1001 page views.  Not bad for someone who barely advertises and doesn't promote this blog. 

Decisions, decisions, decisions...

I close my eyes and see the ocean in my mind, horizon to horizon, an opaque, gurgling mass.  I dive in, with my mind's eyes open, and I see all around me words, symbols, ideas, in motion, moving in currents, flowing in every direction, each current smashing and splashing up against one another.  Where do I want to go?  On what adventure do I wish to partake?  What story do I want to tell?

I close my minds eyes and let myself be swept away.

Oh. My.

Beating My Head on the Desk

I have considerably more time to write now.  No school work, standardized tests, grad school applications...  Nothing, nada.   However, I can't bring myself to do it.  While I don't believe in writer's block, I do have a certain lack of motivation.  I have transformed from Type A to Type B in the last three months. I have a book and several short stories I should be rewriting, editing, proofreading, but I am not...  How do I get this monkey off my back?  I guess I just have to force myself.
