Tired but Inspired

Tired but Inspired

I’ve been wandering through some old stuff while I work on the new site (going up soon, to replace the old kdsarge.com! Same bat time, same bat channel! Whoo!) (uh, sorry.)

Anyway. Old stuff. Mostly still viable. I just have to have the time to turn it into the epic I know it can be–but in my head, it’s already epic. So I can get sucked in where no one else could.

I really gotta find the time to get more writing done.

Homesick for the Inside of My Head

OMG no matter how much I need it, I hate being between projects!

I have a lot to do, though. I’m not so good at writing boundaries–when I’m deep in a project (especially one fast approaching a deadline, cough) I don’t do other things.† Website maintenance. Home maintenance. Relationships. *shifty eyes* All fall by the wayside.

When I’m writing,  I think about it all the time. I feel like I’m wasting time if I’m doing other things–reading a book, say, or watching a movie. Thinking about a book that isn’t the one I’m in. I think it yields pretty good rewards, and it certainly makes me happy. I’m not looking to change that. (yes, yes, you can give me your speeches on moderation if you like. I’m sure you’ll say something I haven’t heard before.)

Now, though, is the time of catch-up. I have a list ranging from “laundry!” to “Update Joomla!” passing through “talk to my friends!” My world, my life, is not empty. It only feels that way.

You see, I’m homesick. I miss my imaginary friends. My worlds. The brilliant amazing process, start to finish.

I’ve said it before, but I feel half-alive when I’m not in a project. I feel like I stumble around in a daze, wishing I could make my brain work. But that’s the thing, isn’t it? It doesn’t work as hard when I’m not writing/editing, so it’s hard to feel like it’s working at all. I’m on a lower level. My life is less…alive.

When me and my muses are on a roll, it’s like Mickey in the Sorcerer’s Apprentice. All of Creation dances to our will.

I guess I’d be an idiot not to miss that, hmm?

† Unless I am avoiding my project. Then all bets are off. I might even be found scrubbing the grout in the bathroom if I’m avoiding something.

New-to-Me Time-Waster

I went through it all, though (since yesterday) so it’s safe for me to talk about it.

Have you seen Set Phasers to LOL yet?

This is me, dying laughing. Most sites, if they include SF stuff at all, will mostly make fun of the fans. I can’t tell you how many “will never get laid” jokes I’ve seen by people who actually don’t know anything about geek stuff at all. This site still has some of those, but mostly–no, mostly the site is by geeks for geeks and oh lord it restores my faith in humanity.

Real geeks know smart girls are hot. We also know smart guys are hot. Smart guys dressed as the Doctor? EVEN BETTER.

Grant Imahara as the Doctor. *swoon*

Check it out. Set Phasers to LOL. Because, really?

How could you not?

Mmm, Kahlua…

Yeah, no brain here. Most nights I’m working till I kick myself off the computer and go to bed. So on that rare occasion when I’m not writing and I don’t have to be up in the morning…

Mmm, Kahlua.

Progress, Lack of

Today I feel like my brain is bubbling (not in a good way) in the crockpot that is my skull.

Nothing at all got done but work and then a lot of sleeping.

And my space bar is sticking.


No progress on anything. House messier, manuscript stuck, work piling up.

Pondering hiding under my bed with my laptop for a week.

But here. Have some good news.

More broadly, Obama said he was determined to build a new structure for executive oversight that would last beyond his presidency, preempting the problems he currently confronts from happening again.

“We talked a lot about the framework in which he is operating, and he talked about his strong desire to reestablish a system under which the executive is not exercising unfettered authority,” said Elisa Massimino, CEO of Human Rights First and an attendee at the Wednesday affair. “One of the chief differences between him and his predecessor was that he didn’t think he ought to be making these decisions in an ad-hoc, unaccountable way. And so he said that, in thinking through this, he was focused on how his successor might operate.” Huffington Post

Thank God. We have a president who doesn’t think his whims are the Unfiltered Will of God.

Insomnia Sucks

Okay, true insomniacs everywhere are laughing at me. That’s okay; they need the release.

Not sleeping sucks.

That is all.
