It's only Wednesday, but it's already been a rough week. I've been cranky for a variety of small and silly reasons.
For example, I'm going on vacation in 11 days, which is wonderful, but this means I needed to buy a swimsuit. You ladies over 100lbs out there understand what I mean when I say trying on swimsuits is a traumatizing experience. After much bikini-wrestling, I finally said "Screw it, this one is fine" and bought one. Yet the crankiness was already implanted in my subconscious from staring at my pasty midsection in a poorly lighted fitting room mirror. Weak. Sauce.
I'm also sleep deprived because my brain has been hyper the last few nights, and am starting to suspect one of my legs may be longer than the other. No proof yet, but troubling nonetheless :P.
Luckily, before the wave of crankiness hit, I was really productive last week and this weekend! :) Hooraaaay for progress!
--I did a ton of editing on my novel and am about halfway through the manuscript combing for any and all passive language.
--I got some suggestions on how to make my closing scene ever more Epic, and have jotted down the changes. I am ready to roll.
I feel like I'm about 2-3 weeks away from really having a Perfect Manuscript, which is an amazing feeling. (Disclaimer: "perfect" is here defined as "as close to perfect as I can possibly get it.")
So, now I'm trying to shake the risidual crankies so I can be productive tonight as well. The picture below definitely helps the mood, especially when I imagine Patrick Stewart reading the caption:
Hehehehe. Every time, man. Every time.
I'd love to hear how you are doing!
Any tips for battling crankiness?
How is your week going?
