I’m trying to finish the first draft of my novel (Above World Book 2) by April 6th. This means that the following normal, everyday tasks are going undone:

– Maintaining email correspondence
– Washing dishes
– Returning phone calls
– Meeting friends
– Vacuuming, dusting, or cleaning of any sort
– Maintaining basic hygiene (most days)
– Paying bills
– Playing World of Warcraft
– Cleaning litter boxes
– Posting blog entries
– Remembering birthdays
– Engaging in rational thought

In addition, these side-effects are also noticeable:

– Forgetting to eat
– Eating non-stop
– Forgetting to shower before leaving the house
– Drinking excessive amounts of coffee
– Insomnia
– Cats drape themselves on me as if I am furniture
– Bouts of crying
– Bouts of euphoria
– Bouts of anger
– Bouts of gratitude when boyfriend takes care of everything
– Bouts of frustration when boyfriend refuses to finish my novel for me

So that’s where I am, and that’s where I’ll be for the next week or so. Please keep your arms and legs away from the cage.
