...but seriously now, what is everyone up to tonight?

I'm drinking some nice red, thinking I should be writing. I'll probably end up just reading tonight though. Feeling pretty drained lately.

I'm going sober tonight. Too much wine on Friday and Saturday night.

I did some writing today, some critting, some raking, I'm ready to just goof off the rest of the night.

I wonder if that nice red has anything to do with you feeling drained.

Nah, It's my first glass...the feeling drained was what prompted the pouring of it

I've just been working too much and not sleeping enough and letting stress get to me. I'm hitting up my first yoga class in waaay too long on Tuesday, to see if I can remedy some of it. Can't wait!

I'm with you on the lack of sleep problem. I have a teen who stays up until all hours, a husband who wakes before dawn, and cats that are roaming half the night, so what is a light sleeper like me to do? *pours a glass of wine*

Nope, better to let sleeping dragons lay. Better stick to water, for now.

Welcome to the pub Dmac. If a certain flyer by night hasn't drunk it all, you can pour yourself a Baileys. Self service here at the moment. All the staff are either drunk or writering. Or both. Probably both.

Sounds like a coffee stout is just what you need!

Or, Irish coffee. Or both!

Mmm, coffee and alcohol, two of nature's most perfect creations.

Thanks all for the welcome.
*sipps water*
Thanks for the offer but this and coffee are about it for me. Past history. If memory serves though that should taste really good. *wipes lips* But do I smell something with *smiles* chocolate? Warm chocolate, and sugar, and *inhales deeply* cookie dough! You guys ROCK! Um and girls of course.
Don’t be too concerned with the timing of most of my posts. I do live in the western hemisphere. It’s just most of the time I live like a vampire with only occasional daywalking trips.

It's a better place with all your friends around you. You, me friends, you izz

Last night I did some writering for the first time in a while. I found the spark I was looking for in an old draft. Wondered for a long time what was missing from the newer ones, and it was found. Sometimes editing the crap out of something destroys the heart of it.

Oh---my apologies DMac---welcome to the home of the saints and sinners. I, of course, am a the only saint in this place. I cannot speak for these sinners!! I turn a blind eye to their goings on. (and if ya believe that I got some swamp property I inherited from that dragon I'll sell ya!)

Hey all!

If someone could spread some of that writerly goodness over here...it'd be greatly appreciated. Seriously, I feel so stuck.
It's getting to the point that I'm so bad at this part of the writing I feel I should kill another character to continue on...Alas, this is no tale of a serial killeh...or is it?
*cries out "Woe is me. Woe is me."*
