I should be grading....

Or writing, judging by my word meter over there, but I am feeling incredibly lazy. I am currently at the point where I am wondering if I have PMS or the alternative, but only time will tell.  I did not do any real writing last month, which I am a bit embarrassed about, because what the hell have I been doing with my time? Playing Scrabulous? Watching TV? That is really not a productive way to spend my time. I like Chaser's idea of a monthly word count, so I think I will start back at zero for December and stick with the 2500 word goal- even though I will be out of town the last 11 days of the month (somewhere warm!). I am wondering what to do about web access then, too. My Grandma has no internet at her house, so I've usually resorted to excruciatingly slow dial-up through my cell phone. I am almost tempted to look into a short-term wireless broadband account from my carrier- do they do that, even? Anyway- writing. I still have the article that keeps getting abandoned, the proposal idea that I need to revise, and I also got an RFP for a new proposal due in February. So, I have plenty of writing of to do. Before I leave town on the 20th, I also need to finish up classes (not too much grading this time, at least), review two manuscripts, do some data analysis,  and work on those writing projects. Wow- I guess I have less than three weeks, then! And gift-buying to figure out, too!

that is a totally fine way to spend time. that sounds like my free time, though replace crosswords for scrabble. good luck with the grading!
