Too many drugs

Oof. I ODed on a cocktail of stimulants last night: one Tramadol, two Sudafed, and two mugs of coffee. The peppy results were excellent, got a lot of writing done . . . for about two and a half hours. Then my stomach informed me that it was not amused by the corrosive substances I had dumped into it and proceeded to make me miserable for the rest of the night. I thought I had stumbled upon a really good productivity combination--I was clear-headed, wonderfully pain free, and energetic, with no shakes or twitches to boot--but nausea is not a price I'm willing to pay for a few good writing hours. So it's back to being headachey, wing stubby, and logy for me.

Probably just as well. I wrestle quite enough with my caffeine addiction. I don't need to add to it.

Stupid human shell.

This morning Matthew's going to a staff meeting of the Atlanta film festival folks. I slept poorly, so I expect I shall do some napping while he is gone. Hoping to get cracking on some writing when I recover from my up-and-down night. Definitely want to pick up where I left off yesterday.

Writing Stuff

New Words: 1100 on a short story I began last month. I need to finish something that isn't a folk tale and that isn't the novel. I think my muse has been feeling cramped and needs to stretch. I opened up the file, read through what I started, and hit flow nearly as soon as I set fingers to keyboard. I've missed that. This story's a light little ditty of a tale, nothing deep, no meaningful themes. But it's fun to write, and I hope it'll be fun to read.

Club 100 For Writers

I'm feeling:
nauseated nauseated

Thanks, Keesa. I'm feeling much better this morning than I was last night, just still a bit woozy. Nothing that a good nap can't cure, I'm sure!

Ugh. Does not sound fun, milady. @_@

BTW, this Atlanta Film Festival you mentioned, is there a site where I can read up on it? Sounds like something fun to get involved in.

Atlanta Film Festival website at imagefv.org. It starts next week, so if you want to get involved, you'll need to scramble to contact the coordinators ASAP.
