Coming down off my high...

The very first time I ever did a workshop I almost puked. Good in a way, because it was on-line and nobody saw me. I'm always amazed people show up--my fault, I know. Those early crits did something to my head. There are still people out there who have me on ignore-user.

I just finished the FF&P workshop--very cool. The more I do, the more I learn--this time I learned the "squishy ball" theory of motivational/impact--I need to find a better word--theory of deep something or other.

Reveal your characters--with a paring knife! Good title. No time. *sigh*

drumming fingers

I need time. Only five more days. I can do five days. My kids are barely visible behind the dirty dishes and takeout containers. I think they stopped complaining. It's hard to hear with the door closed. At least they respect the door.

It's been a long, crazy, messed up haul and it ends Thursday. No more school. I'm going to sleep a whole day through. I'll call out. I'll drink water instead of AMP, maybe go out to Kohls and reward myself with a pair of pants or something for the conference.

...and let all the lightning trickle out.

I really need to get a better job. Coming down hurts.

The workshop was terrific. I'm so glad I signed up for it. I can only imagine how tired you must be after all that one-to-one feedback you were giving. But, it was amazing. I learned so much.

Thanks. Now get some well-deserved rest. :-)

Thanks Patrizia! *sigh* I'm in finals right now--every day until Thursday. But a nap? Yes, a nap? I can swing that.

Thanks for stopping by :)

"There are still people out there who have me on ignore-user." All I can say is their loss. Honestly, you ripped my first piece put up for strangers to read into smithereens that would have made Humpty Dumpty look like one of those over-sized puzzles for toddlers and it was probably the best thing that could have happened. =)

Tomorrow's last day for my monsters. I'm so sleeping in on Wednesday!

Hope they let you sleep when you get to it! Hang in there... almost done!
