I haven't yet gotten all of Shiners up and ready like I planned, just through chapter 15 as of tonight.  It has been a hellacious work/home chores week. Stuff is getting done in my 'real' life, so I suppose that is something, writing has taken a turn for the worse though, I've only written a few thousand words this week, though I bet I get in three thousand tomorrow, which will be good. 

I always think if I can just do ONE thing I'll be able to ace it, you know? Like this week I'll write and write and I'll get 15 thousand words down, or I'll concentrate on my house chore list and knock ten of the twenty things off of it. Or I'll learn a new programming language by taking 15 hours of online courses. Life isn't like that, it's not a 'single track' kind of thing. At any given time we all have a dozen ropes in our hands, tied to different activities, some need to be done, some should be done, some should be done for our own good and then there's the ropes made of thread leading to what we want to do. It doesn't take a genius to see which ones will break first. Bah, excuses will see me in the grave before I accomplish anything...
