A Strange Feeling

I finished up and submitted my most recent project (more on that another time; regardless of how confident I feel, I'm always afraid of jinxing myself), meaning I have no WIPs going right now. As the post title says, it's a strange feeling: I always feel like I should be writing something, but at the same time, it's good to take a break every now and then to recharge the batteries.

I've owned Dragon Age: Origins ("owned" as in "paid money for") for almost a year and a half now, and I've only played a couple minutes of it. That has to change, especially since DA3 comes out this fall. The list of books I want to read never grows any shorter, so I have plans to tackle some of that as well. And, of course, there's always the day job, and we're getting started on remodeling our bathrooms in the House of Landen, and I have to squeeze knitting in there somewhere, etc.

On the flip side, my writer brain never ever ever ever ever ever ever stops running. It's a hamster on a wheel (especially when I'm trying to fall asleep). Just as the reading list never gets shorter, the list of stories I want to write is always expanding. I remember talking to one of my friends and fellow knitters in college, and the two of us agreed that there's no way we'll live long enough to knit everything we want to knit. The same goes for reading and writing.

I'll still be updating here (hopefully with good news!) while I take a little breather, but if you'll excuse me, there are some dragons that need my attention....


  1. I'm sure it's a well deserved break! I always feel weird when I have nothing to write, too. I felt really empty and sad last time while the WIP was with a beta.

  2. It IS strange, but we totally need this down time after a big project. Congratulations on finishing up another book! Hug a dragon for me...if it's safe. ^_^
