I had hoped for a lot of productivity today, but that didn't happen. My rational mind is trying to soothe my productivity demon, which is incensed and hopping around on one foot, but it's not working.

Rational mind: Usually it takes me nearly four or five full days to catch up with Google Reader, LJ, and everything else, and that's just with skimming. I did it in only a couple days this time because I wasn't so far behind.
Productivity demon: YOU TIME-WASTER!
Rational mind: Actually, some of this social media stuff is now required in order for me to attract more attention to my listings.
Productivity demon: EXCUSES! WE WANTS RESULTS!
Rational mind: I managed to get caught up AND sort some stuff AND take pics for the blog and put together blog entries AND ship eight packages, including two international AND clean up my eBay orders queue AND send out an invoice AND work on FB stuff for that company AND list 65+ eBay listings AND I even did a post office run.
Productivity demon: NOT ENOUGH LISTINGS! MOAR LISTINGS AND NEW ETSY THINGIES!
Rational mind: Oh, and I wrote 900 new words on the giant story and broke through the Sticky Sentence!
Productivity demon: Oh, well that's okay then.

Still, I feel only half-happy.

I was having a conversation with a dear online friend (hmm--does that phrase cheapen it somehow? Because it's not meant to, my online life is v important, too), and talking about how I sometimes go from productive to...not productive, which can send me into a tailspin. The thing is, I don't always remember that most people get weekends and time off; they only work 40 hours, and if they want to play WoW all weekend it's great. I never allow myself that luxury, though. Even if I play just ten minutes of something I feel bad. The only place I ever give myself a free pass is while I'm writing, and even that's because I'm practicing writing.

I was supposed to only work Thursday this week, but apparently my boss quit and my other boss wants me to come in and help sort out the ex-boss's office. So I am going in tomorrow. I didn't want to, because I still have so much to do, but I feel like I should help if I'm needed. So there. Plus, after a half-productive day, it's probably a good idea to...I dunno...actually get paid for my time instead of just hoping some amorphous money will rain on me after I perform the necessary tweeting.

I wrote 2500 words today. I finished the Sticky Scene and wrote another scene, a truly tricky one.

AND NOW THERE IS NOTHING BUT THE EPILOGUE.

I cannot believe this. I think I will start posting this bastard so very soon. SQUEE!!!

PS: am at 109,212 words. HOLY COW.
