Good news, bad news.

So, I finished a book. Hurrah. I've done all I can do for the meantime for that book. So I should be working on the other, nearly-finished book, right? CvsE has been languishing, untouched, on my harddrive for almost a year, now. Now would be a good time. But I tried. Nothing. Argh. So instead, I turned back to the Dread Query Letter for Riverwend.

I think by now we're all familiar with my tendency to go way, way overboard when I find something that distracts me, at least when it's distracting me from something stressful about which I can do nothing.

But even I did not expect to have compiled 78 names and to have written 78 letters by 9:13pm.

'Cause, um, yeah. *headdesk*

I mean, okay, technically I only wrote one letter and changed the address (Although the first one was agonizing - 150 words to describe the entire book? What?), and I'll have to change it when I get the drafts back and edit the thing, and then again when I get the second draft back and edit it again, so it was mainly a giant, shiny-thing waste of time.

The thing that's really bothering me, I suppose, is that I don't think any of my readers are less than two to three weeks from returning the drafts, and I have only managed to kill sixteen hours.

Clearly, there is something wrong with my brain. *repeat headdesk*

Ooh, suggestion, and you may have already done this, but fling your approach letter in the direction of minisinoo? She'll be able to let you know how it is, given she's gone through the same thing and all. ;)

Mm, I suggest taking a trip to a used bookstore. Perhaps an old favourite, or even one you've never been to (so that you're guaranteed not to have cleaned them out already, or is that just me?) and buy a bigass stack of books. Books from authors you like but have never read, books that have been recommended to you that you haven't gotten around to, and just some brand new authors that you're giving a chance. And don't forget to pet the cat while you're there.

Hey, if need an additional pair of eyes at any point, just let me know!

GOOD LUCK.
