I can’t believe it’s already August! It’s been a nice, mild summer here in Chicago, at least for the most part. But now it’s August and time to start getting ready for the new school year. I haven’t done nearly as much as I wanted to this summer. But when do I ever do as much as I want to? I probably have sometime, but not usually.
The optional Insecure Writers Support Group prompt for this month is: What are your pet peeves when reading/writing/editing?
And I must admit to feeling rather peevish just now. Maybe it’s because I spent four hours at the dentist yesterday and spent this whole day feeling blah. Maybe it’s because I’m taking my cat to the dentist tomorrow because he has something unpleasant going on that they can’t see without sedating him (and I’m worried about him, too). Or maybe it’s because it’s transition time and I always get peevish during transitions even when I like what is passing and what is coming–like the end of summer and the beginning of the school year.
I wanted to have an agent by the end of the summer. I don’t have one yet. Of course, summer isn’t over yet, but I’m feeling resigned to the fact that it’s not going to happen. I’m generally feeling discouraged about writing and arting.
Aargh! It’s good to have a nice kvetch from time to time. And I could go on and on. But we have to be at the vet at 7:30AM, so I’m going to wrap this up and get ready for bed.
Sorry that I’m not my usual cheery self.
And thanks for stopping by.
Are you feeling peevish now?
