My sims existence

My sims have to get in their share of fun and social activity or else they go on strike. Won't study, won't play chess (unless they are knowledge sims and chess is fun for them), won't take care of the baby, clean up. I am constantly getting irritated at them because I have to keep these social and fun levels up and it drains their energy.

I think I need those doses of fun and social activity also. When I don't have them, I slug around doing nothing or trying to fill my fun quota by watching television or...heaven forbid...playing sims. When I don't have enough social points I go to coffee places. I get irritated at myself for the same reasons as I get irritated at the sims. Well, not all of the same reasons. I don't stamp my feet because someone else is in the bathroom. I don't put food on the floor because I had filled the counter with dirty dishes. And I don't burst out crying for no reason. Sheesh. Oh yeah, and don't get me started on the babies. Or the nannies. The last time I fired a nanny she hung around all day, swimming in the pool, grabbing the baby right when I wanted it to be doing something specific, like learning to walk. What a pain in the ass.

So today I have done very little writing. I am heading for a coffee place to see if that fills up a meter or two.

Good morning. An LJ friend of mine, llygoden had some very good writing information today from a conference. I thought you might like to see it. She took careful notes.

Also, today I am finished being lackadasical about my own novel. I am determined to get those three final chapters done this week!

You have inspired me, and also it's time.

Thanks for that. Fortunately, I don't write "comic fantasies" and I know where to put apostrophes. I am really not concerned about publishing. Just writing. One foot, then the other...I feel I am quite far behind a lot of other writers, those who actually write!

I must admit tonight, Judith, that I am woefully discouraged in my revising and that part of me is saying, Why bother?

Which makes me determined to finish.
