I’ve been wanting to read this book, Seveneves, since I saw it suggested on Amazon to me one day some months ago. However, I’m cheap, and I have BIG THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS on book buying, so I decided not to purchase a paper or digital copy of this book to read, because of these thoughts and opinions on the sale of books, not so much about the book itself. But this post isn’t about BIG THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS about book buying, it’s just about how I found this on the shelf at the library today and I was so happy, I had big happies and all the feels as I checked it out and brought it home with me, free for two whole weeks!
I’m also unfortunately about 3,000 words behind on NaNoWriMo right now and that will escalate to almost 5K words behind if I don’t get some more in by midnight.
And so I ask myself once again, why do NaNoWriMo and NaBloPoMo have to share the same month? Why must we all be so prolific at once?
It’s like how I don’t mind getting up a little earlier every morning to do my morning pages, my three pages of longhand writing before anything else (except coffee).
You get to a point eventually when you do what you have to do not because you have to, but because you want to, and that’s awesome – for all of us.
Now if we could just get there with cleaning up after herself….
If you follow me on Twitter you will know two things about me that others might not know, which is that I’m obsessed and Tweet about 2 things in particular more than any other things: sleep and coffee.
Sleep and coffee, folks. I can’t ever have enough of either.
For all my life I’ve been a night owl, not even thinking of attempting bedtime before midnight. Now, as I’m getting older, as I feel in my bones the seasons changing, my rhythms and habits are changing as well.
A good nights sleep has been quite elusive for me lately, so there’s only one thing to be done now.
It’s 10:15 folks, and I’m heading to bed with my book.
Who am I? What’s happening to me?
