Tasks for tomorrow

Laundry--always--2 loads down, 5 to go
5 pages of novel--really need to do this
Read short story for Writer's group
Buy birthday present
Soccer party
Soccer game--cancelled
Birthday party

Is that enough? I think so. I really need to work on the novel. I started a blog for it and everything. I thought I would use it to keep notes, but I'm in one of my down times. This always happens. I'll write nearly every day for a few months, then go through about a month where I won't write anything. I think this means it's going to take forever to finish. Luckily, there's nothing really riding on it. I just want to do it--but obviously not enough to drag myself away from the blog to work on it. I will, though. I have my writing group and my book club, back to back, both of which inspire me in some way. I've been reading a lot of nonfiction lately and frankly, it's not very conducive to inspiring fiction writing. Blog writing maybe, but not fiction. Maybe next year I'll be finished with the novel and can participate in Na-No-Blog-Mo.
