A Night Off

It may seem shocking but last night I did nothing more than watch a movie.  I am at a place in editing that I'm trying to figure out the next step to put between two scenes and none of the other stories I'm working on drew me in.  I didn't even want to watch tv really but I watched the new episode of Dr. Who.  Not sure how I feel about the new doctor.  After I watched Ever After.  It is one of my favorite Cinderella stories. 

It was relaxing and non-thinking.  The stories that bounce around my head were quiet for a couple of hours.  The Cinderella story is one of my favorites.  The Ever After version of it shows a strong woman not willing to take crap from anyone who overcomes a lot.  Instead of the Prince rescuing her, she rescues him - many times - and in the end they rescue each other.  Plus it is a bit of a sappy love story and I like those.

Instead of working non-stop, it was nice to take a break from constant working but at the same time I feel like my brain didn't really take a break.  I think I figured out what the scene I've been mulling on will be.  I've had one story in my head just hanging there stuck in trying to figure out what it wants to be.  It may have developed into a story of sorts - it needs a bit more mulling to see what the overarcing plot will be.  I've got the opening dozen scenes but more than that I'm not sure.  Until I am it will probably just stay in my head.

A night off was helpful in giving my brain a break but it didn't help me sleep any better.  I still woke up several times and didn't get a lot of sleep. 

While I can't sleep, I'm just going to keep plugging away.  Right now I have three novels to edit, one to finish (well more than that if I look at all my projects) and one novel to do a final read through before I start production.  The artist is working on the cover and interior pictures.  In addition to all of these, I need to get some time in on marketing. 

So much to do and so little time.  I love almost all of it and even the parts I'm not thrilled about don't annoy me over much.
