Still stuck.

That's me. Stuck. Trying to revise the end of my book as suggested by my hopefully-would-be agent.

It's not working.

I'm tired.
And also sick.
Not the normal "sick and tired" that you've probably heard a teacher or parent speak of, oh no. I mean tired and sick.
The tired is from not sleeping more than 2-3 hours at a time because of Maisy, our still-new puppy. She has taught me that even if you sleep as many as nine hours in a single night, you can still feel like a zombie.

On to the sick.
I have something. I don't know what it is. It feels like a mash-up of the flu with a sinus infection I had two years ago. Add in massive allergies, like those hazy people in the Claritin commercials. Only the really annoying thing is that I'm not that sick. I'm just sick enough to feel like crap if I go to work, but bored if I stay home. This pretty much sucks. I hope that whatever I have, it's the 24-hour stuff.

Thank you to Nathan for pointing out that I can use my bored sick day tomorrow to work on revisions.

no fun. no fun at all.

but perhaps the muse will strike.

when least expected...

anyway, hope you get some productive rest in, and that violet eventually blooms anyhoo in what has been composting time.

i keep clicking on this post...and want to give you advice...but i don't have any...i wish i had some wise words to say...but who am i kidding...you're the best...and you know violet the best...

and then this morning...i thought..."i think amy needs to get out and go shopping"...and i thought this would be the best thing for you and violet...

go find something extremely cute and buy it...then...when you are ready...put it on...and write...if you aren't inspired to finish the book...then blog...and tell us of the cute things you've found...

you should listen to this advice...because if nothing else...i took the time to write it...

and finally...i love you...and think that you are the bee's knees...

You guys are sweet and so supportive. I really needed that little bit of advice as a pick-me-up. While I haven't cracked the De Violet Code (I thought Brad might appreciate the attempt at a pun) I have jotted down some notes for a way into a revised ending. So that's a start...

Also, I plan to hit T.J. Maxx this weekend for a little retail therapy. Good call, E.
