Full Brains

This is one of those days where I stare blankly at blogger and think, what am I going to post about???

Sometimes I feel like I'm so busy that I don't have time to think. At least about extra stuff. I'm neck-deep in Sway revisions, I'm critiquing, and when I'm not doing those, my brain is busy working on revision ideas for Daze. And then of course there's mothering, cleaning, cooking, reading, trying to find time to catch up on my PVR'd TV shows, exercising, and finding the time to shower so I'm not a greasy disaster. And then we add in all the other stuff- groceries, shopping because the kids have grown out of their clothes again, driving the kids to their activities, teaching piano, church, etc.

Do you ever feel like your head is too full???

This is why I write. I write to help de-stress. To leak imagination from my brain to the computer keys, giving my head some room for the normal, every day stuff.

Unfortunately, revisions don't allow for that same pressure release. I think I've said this before, but if Dumbledore could lend me his Pensieve, I'd be really grateful.


  1. I know exactly how you feel. Life can get so overloaded at times...glad to know I'm not alone. Good luck with everything, you can do it!

  2. I totally know what you feel. I am knee deep in a REWRITE!!! Not just revisions, a rewrite. It is scary as heck but totally worth it and if I could borrow Dumbledore's Pensive after you, Mel, that would be great. ;-) I know you can get through these revision. :-) You can do it! Good luck!

  3. Yes, this. My head is just like this. Good luck, it eases sometimes.

  4. Writing helps me destress too, and you're totally right about revisions not giving the same relief. If you get that pensieve, I hope you loan it out. Editing would go so much faster.
