Excuses, Excuses

I apologize for my absence.

There's been much business and lack of motivation on my part.  I had the county fair to get through, and a novel to edit and send into the OYAN contest.

But all of that was like pulling teeth, since about the beginning of July I've had no motivation.  None.  Zip.

I managed to get everything done, and exceeded everyone's expectations in most areas.  I even managed to finish a third draft of my novel and whisk it off to the OYAN contest ten days before the deadline.

Over the week of fair I felt good.  I was finally getting stuff done.  I was getting to spend time with my friends.  Fair ended.  So I decided to start school to try and keep myself doing stuff.  I seemed to help, but I had problems keeping up, and I managed to get behind within the first week.  On Monday the following week I resolved to do better, and forced myself to get out of bed and get the day started...

...but I got stung by a bee and had a nearly serious reaction.  I spent six hours sleeping after an EpiPen and three doses of benadryl scattered throughout the day.  I didn't even go to dance.

I thought maybe this was supposed to be a wake up call, and on Tuesday I managed to catch up on everything for school.  And then I got behind again....

So here I am, trying not to completely die, and trying to keep myself motivated with the thought of State Fair and Nutcracker Auditions.  I'm hoping some brilliant solution will drop out of the sky for this, but at the moment, it doesn't seem to be happening.

In other news, I'm thinking of totally revamping my blog and starting over.  I'll still keep all the old posts, but I'm going to try to post every Saturday, and it will probably be more of life update-y thingy, since I really don't think I've had enough life experience to be posting about life and writing things. >.<
