I definitely don't want my year to be spent the way I spent the bulk of January 1st: languishing in a Benadryl haze, nursing a head cold and watching the Doctor Who marathon. (Well, the Doctor Who marathon was good.)

And now it's raining again. We are still having a spate of cold-for-LA weather, and the Garage Kitty and I are tired of it.

I keep contemplating writing a detailed post of last year's writing stats, what I want to do in 2011, etc., but my brain's still too cold-addled. But I do want to finish the Jo book revision in 2011 and move the hell on (much as I love the Jo book). Would like to work on at least one other novel project this year. I wrote a few poems last year, and I'd like to continue writing poems. I started a few stories last year but didn't finish any; I'd like to finish some stories this year. (There was also a secret project that I worked on last year but that didn't come to fruition--I'd like to give that another try this year.)

I'm not a fast writer. That's partly because so much time and energy go into my dayjob. But even with the dayjob, I can write a first draft quickly--but it takes time for my brain to figure stuff out when it comes to revision. Still, I think I need to reevaluate my schedule and see if I can work in some more writing time.

Okay, that's all the contemplation my head cold brain can manage at the moment!

After four days of sleeping late, last night of course I could not fall asleep early. I think I got around five hours' sleep. Ugh...

I'm still reading and loving The Brontes Went To Woolworth's, which is such a wonderfully strange book. Also last night I started Jincy Willett's literary mystery The Writing Class, which is at times laugh-out-loud funny. And I'm still reading Amanda Cross's Poetic Justice (which is my bookbag book of the moment).

On today's Ryan's Hope, I was surprised to see Christine Ebersole playing a nurse (a couple of years before her hilarious stint on the show as Lily Darnell)!
