I really wanted to keep up with the Top Ten Tuesday. I really did. It's been super fun and easy to do several posts at once in advance... but I just can't commit to it anymore.
I'm sorry to say, but I really just can't commit to my blog right now. Here's a list of what on my plate....
- Thesis (research, reading models, planning, writing, thinking...)
- This writing project I'm doing with some Peace Core Volunteers where I write a short story (in English) based on the town/village that these children live in in Ethiopia
- The 12-15 page paper that goes along with the novel portion of my thesis
- Housework/ being a non-slacker partner to Husband (who has been working 12 hour shifts on top of school and is just plain worn out) and trying to keep some order in the house to balance the chaos of his schedule
- My job
- Having a life
- Oh... and sleep
I also enjoy writing about the books I've been reading. But that's not happening.
Last night I did finish Paper Valentine one of the books on my 2013 Top Ten that's being released this year. It was...okay. I stuck with it because a lot of the relationships in the book were similar to ones in mine and I wanted to see how the author went about showing these relationships and not just telling.
Okay... whew. I would say I feel better but it's late, I need to unload the dishwasher and write one more chapter before tomorrow and all I want to do is sleep.
WHERE IS THE CAFFEINE DRIP WHEN I NEED ONE?
