why am i always surprised?

I seem to be in the post-novel state of Empty!Brain. Why am I always surprised when it happens every single time?

Still need to write a story by the end of the month. Much buckling down will ensue this weekend.

In the meantime, am reading J.D. Robb mysteries and fanfiction. And staring vaguely into space.

I did accomplish some things this week:

--reviewed the proofs this morning for a (very) short story reprint, and also my bio. Good thing I read both, as the error was in the bio.
--got passport pictures and mailed off expired passport for renewal.
--registered for the 2010 RWA National conference, in Nashville, and reserved a hotel room. I still need to look at flights.
--updated my website with the new print edition of Alleys & Doorways: Stories of Queer Urban Fantasy, which so far only appears on Amazon.
--dropped off dry cleaning!
--dropped off trousers to be hemmed!
--opened a pile of envelopes and sorted their contents!

Okay, I feel a little better now.
