This Weekend...

...was the most unproductive weekend of my life, writiing-wise or otherwise.

Saturday I did attempt to revise some of my wip. Instead of going to Borders, I holed up in My Nice Clean Office with my laptop. Unfortunately, sitting in a room in your house with a laptop when you're used to sitting at Borders somehow isn't the same. It doesn't sound the same. It doesn't feel the same. I used to write there regularly but the PC sucks. Besides, hubby "borrowed" my monitor because when his died which means I have no PC + I'm trying to write on a laptop on a desk that's meant for a PC

and

it's

just

not

the sa-a-a-a-ame. Boo.

I revised, oh, maybe half a page. On a spur of inspiration I also wrote two paragraphs of a new story that's been preying on my mind for about a year. Then:

Photobucket

Then I read blogs, read the news, wrote e-mails, downloaded a buttload of iTunes, and headed out to do some grocery shopping. Beth and I had planned to see SPLICE that evening. Nate (who never calls me) called while I was picking through containers of grape tomatos (do they deliberately stick the shriveled ones on the bottom, thinking people won't check?) to say he just saw the movie and DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY, MOM. Instead, we spent the evening watching a French film called HAUTE TENSION which terrified me so much I had to stop watching it. Seriously!!!

Sunday I broke down and vaccuumed up 17 pounds of dog hair. Then my sister came for lunch--she, Beth, and I split an Entenman's coffee cake 3 ways; gosh, tell me again why I can't seem to lose weight? After dinner we watched DISTRICT 9, never mind that I hate, hate, hate alien movies and this one was no exception (all I cared about was the baby alien). Later (after everyone else went to bed) I watched THE READER which was f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s and well worth sitting up till after midnight to watch. If you haven't seen it, do! Excellent.

In a nutshell my weekend consisted of pigging out on food, TV, the internet, and not much else.

Frankly, it was kind of nice for a change.

Heh, we watched District 9 Saturday night. It wasn't half bad. I still have to see The Reader.

Sounds like a pretty decent, stress-free weekend if you ask me!

Yeah, it was, basically...though I tend to get slightly stressed out by the fact that I'm not writing. Which is stoopid. :)

No reason. I just wanted to see if I could do it. And obviously I CAN'T, lol.

I don't know about you, but unproductive weekends almost always cause me to be productive again, so taking a break like this could be just the thing you need to kick-start your writing! (And if not, hey, at least your unproductive weekened was also a FUN weekend!)

Sounds like my kind of weekend! I'll be over to the south west side to join you all as soon as you've recovered from this one!

Hmm, wonder if we were watching The Reader at the same time this weekend?

We all need weekends like that, Jen, so don't feel guilty. Bet it's just want you needed. Well, maybe not the pigging out part. ;)
