I am swamped !

I can't believe it's been 9 days since my last post. What can I say? I work, and work, and work, and it's not even fun work, it's the kind of work that pays a few bills, that makes me feel as if I contribute something to the household budget, and that's it. I was a bad girl and spent lots of quality time with my writing over the past several weeks and totally neglected my translation, and now, I have to meet a fast approaching deadline, and I cannot do anything else but trudge through one page after another. That's how it feels. And I shall now stop my whining, because who wants to listen to that? The good thing ? Only 3 and half more weeks to go. Grrr.

Spending quality time with your writing is never a bad thing! Feeling guilty about it is...
How's the dummy bit going? Want to hear more about that.
So excited about seeing you again in August... but that doesn't mean I want to skip out on all the months in between. Goodness knows I've lost so much time already. Keep at it and get someone else's writing translated so you can get back to your own ;) Love to the girls

I'm looking forward to reading what you produced in that "quality time." I agree with Rilla, that's never a bad thing!

Hey Sue and Rilla,
of course it's not a bad thing from a writer's point of view. It's just a bad thing for my mental health and my stress levels because now, I have to work like a mad woman to meet my deadline. I just wish I was better organized. Anyway, I see the end of the tunnel. Soon, soon :)
