Due South

(no subject)

I feel a general malaise towards - well, everything recently. And I'm annoyed because I'm pretty sure I didn't use the word "malaise" in the right matter.

I don't know what's with me. I barely feel like writing, except as a general idea to finish all of my damned unfinished fics. I've barely read anything all week. And the things that I have, I find myself skimming along. Or staring at the opening paragraph of something for an hour before I realize that I have not even the slightest interest in reading said story.

So anyone I owe reviews? You're going to have to wait another week at least.

Maybe it's the weather. It's too cold to go outside and I feel trapped. Even though I spent all day yesterday out. (Including entirely too much time outside.)

Plus, I'm gettng mad at all the money I'm being forced to spend on school books. They're too damned expensive. Especially coursepaks. Supposedly created to save us money, the prof always claims they'll only be a few dollars. Then I buy them and they're $30-$40.

Also, I really wish I could just finish my damned unfinished stuff. There are a couple ideas floating around in my head that I really want to try, but I'm actually going to stay firm in my vow not to start anything major (major being more than 1000 words or so - or written for a lark) until I finish up "Secrets and Lies" "MHT3K" "Summer at Lyonesse" and "Nightmares". But I'm not even remotely close to finishing *any* of them in the near future and it's discouraging. Especially since I've been trying to finish them up for almost half a year now.

ETA: DueSouth Second Season (which I got on DVD for Christmas) is helping. I've watched 4 episodes so far and will watch at least another two tonight.

So is role-playing. I joined up beo_go_deo - which still has lots of spots open. Especially if you want to play someone (eg, Narcissa or Regulus) who would interact with ME! (Bellatrix) Umm, anyone?
