Sleep Writing

It turns out that composing blog posts and presentations in your head while tossing and turning is, in fact, not the most effective use of one’s time and energy.

I’ll remember that in the future or maybe I’ll just try to cut out caffeine after 4 so I can take advantage of the time I do have to sleep.

Crunch time is here. I’ve got the presentation / signing on Monday, the 21st I’m doing a two hour workshop on going from blog to book for the Center for Women, that evening Aidan will receive his First Communion. I leave for New York on Monday, I’m flying out of Charlotte very early on Tuesday morning, the plan is to hole up in a hotel room for the evening and polish everything. Wednesday morning I’ll moderate a session and Wednesday afternoon I’ll present with Kelby. This means I should be able to enjoy Wednesday evening and Thursday. Friday is Aidan’s last day of school so it all has to be wrapped up by then, too. Throw in two tv promos that make my hands sweat at just the thought.

Writing that out?

Didn’t make it any better. Hold me.

Well don’t, really. I get kind of cranky when I’m stressed, it’s probably best to keep your distance.  Oh and I’m supposed to finish my article for LifeHacker.

They are coming to take me away ha ha, they are coming to take me away ho ho. . .

It’s on, but I’m pulling for you. I’m sure you’ll be great.

Know just what you mean about the TV promos. They are scary. Here’s what we’ve learned about them at the library: don’t wear white or narrow stripes and just look at the presenters, not the camera. The pros do most of the talking for you, thankfully. I’m so excited for you to get to be on TV! You’ll do a fantastic job. 🙂
