It’s official. I don’t want to go to work anymore. As a matter of fact, I don’t really want to do anything anymore. It doesn’t help that the weather in France has been sunny and hot for the last few weeks. My entire body is convinced I should be on vacation and every morning each one of my cells is chanting ‘call in sick!’ ‘ call in sick!’.
Alas, I still have a few more weeks before true freedom shall ring.
Also- it seems like I’ve been having ‘mood swings’ when it comes to my current wip. Sometimes I sit down and reread chapters and think ‘this is good stuf!’.
Other times…well, let’s just say I start to wonder if I should let anybody else read this thing ever. Every word seems lame. I know I probably just need to take a step back, get some sleep and wait for my enthusiasm to return.
So instead of writing, I’ve been watching back seasons of ‘Degrassi: the next generation’. The episodes are only 20 minutes long and I’ve been popping them like they’re m&ms. It’s almost as mind-numbing as ‘The Secret Life of the American Teenager’ (but not quite). Shows like these actually make me feel like a better writer. At first I didn’t realize Degrassi was Canadian until they whipped out the ‘oot and aboot’ and used the phrase ‘coo coo banana’s’ in place of ‘crazy’. Ah, those Canadians;)
What about you? What do you do when your in a funk?
