not the perkiest today

I am not the perkiest at the moment. I keep waking up in the wee hours and when I drop back off I have nasty dreams. Not sure if this is a cause or a consequence of me being cranky.

Wrote this weekend. 2278 words on Saturday, 1099 on Sunday. It is better to have written than not, but my mood didn't improve that much. What I wrote wasn't bad. I also worked in some new things into parts I'd already written, which was satisfying. It's starting to have a shape. Alas, my brain ran out of steam and I had to stop.

I spent Sunday afternoon napping and re-reading Georgette Heyer's The Toll-Gate, and being annoyed with the endless slang in the dialogue even though that's such an integral part of Heyer. I guess I just hadn't remembered there being so much in this particular book.

I am going to stop writing this post before I complain even more about ridiculous things.
