I need coffee. I don't make coffee because a) mine isn't as good as the husband's and b) when he's not here, it seems such a waste to make even half a pot. So when he's away, I don't make it, and I don't have morning coffee.
Sadly - yesterday and this morning are the only days it's been missing but already I have a cracking headache. And it's not like I drink a lot of caffeine either. A cup in the morning and a cup of tea at night. That's it. But miss a few days...and I'm grumpy as all get out and usually sport a nice headache.
To top it off, my schedule's been crap. I really enjoyed Tuesday. It was how a work day should be. I am going to attempt it again today with the exception of a few errands. I have to do the banking, then stop at the bank machine, then go to the post office (as I've been waiting to send some packages) and I'm stopping at Tim Horton's and buying an extra large coffee. At least then when I come home the pile of bills will be off my desk and the pile of books to be mailed will be off my cabinet.
I desperately need to add to word count today. I realized last night thanks to Jack Bickham that I didn't start my first chapter in the right place. Thankfully I think the scene is salvageable, but I had to axe the first 2 1/2 pages. Deleted pages always hurt, especially when you're struggling to add to word count. But better for the story, for sure.
Anyway Banking etc. first in the hopes I can ward off the headache with a good cup of coffee.
Oh and before I go - Mills and Boon are celebrating one year of offering e-books by giving some away! Just head over to http://www.everyonesreading.com/ and download any or all of the 10 books they have to offer. These are different titles than the ones Harlequin are giving away for their 60th Birthday celebrations. A few are ones I've been wanting to read for a while, so I'm thrilled.
