Monday Mumblings

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

First, thanks for the good feedback on the Publishing Myths series. While the comments here have been light, the Twitter activity has been good. I appreciate it.

So it's Monday, and I'm having one of those "I'm crap" days. I've accomplished quite a bit today, but I've also been out surfing around and looking at the writing (and video) of some very talented people. I shouldn't do that on a Monday. It's enough to make me want to crawl into a cave, curl up into a fetal position, and whimper softly for a few hours. But then, it's Monday!

But hey, things are already looking up. Why, when I walked onto the patio with an armload of groceries, I heard a dove coo in the tree above and stopped to look. As the bird flew off it left a lovely parting gift at my feet. If I hadn't stopped I'd be washing my hair instead of blogging right now.

And speaking of amazingly talented people, there's going to be a film of David Tennant's Hamlet! Patrick Stewart is in that production as well. Pardon me while I uncurl myself and change the whimper to a squee!

Yes, it's the bipolar edition of Monday Mumblings!

Well, I'm looking at a stack of stuff to do and feeling very much like procrastinating. And I have one thing to honestly procrastinate with first. The next load of laundry just finished. Better go hang stuff up.

Hope your Monday is going well!
