I just realized something magnificent.
In five weeks I am officially DONE with my MLIS and everything attached to it*. I was taking care of cleaning cat enclosures for the rescue this morning when I found myself mulling over things to do in Familiar- something I have not had the brain space to think about in a year. I am reclaiming brain cells and can finish the damn book! Oh, happy days.
This is important to me- I don't ever want to stop on one short story being published, and the book thus far (while it needs work) has met with pretty fair reception in the crit group and dammit if I will let something nifty like Egg scuttle away just because I could not knock together the motivation to sit down and write.djkc
is in the process of flipping his sleep schedule back to early to bed really early to rise, and I will be flipping mine as well. Since I write best in the morning, this could work out veerrryy nicely.
*Yes, I know I walked in Commencement in May. There is no Summer session Commencement and dammit, I was walking in my hood for my MLIS. Only had a pesky core class to get rid of and some hilarious electives.
