That’s what I keep telling myself.   Whatever this bug is that I have, it’s still going strong.  I’ve had a couple of days where I thought it might be getting better, and then it’s worse again.  I’m seriously considering investing in the company whose tissues I’ve been going through like crazy for the past week; I imagine I might make a fortune with an investment like that, right?  I suppose if it doesn’t improve soon I’ll have to drag myself to a doctor.  In the meantime, though, I’m tired from lack of sleep (hard to sleep when you can’t breathe properly, isn’t it?) and foggy from meds.

My other big issue right now is work-related.  Our new-ish manager is leaving in just a couple more days, and another new-ish manager is coming to take her place.  That part is good and bad–good, because I don’t have to run the store as my leaving-manager had been told initially; bad because no one in the store knows the new manager and they’ll all come to me anyway.  Not so terrible in a good job, but not great in a terrible job.

All of that means I’m much, much farther behind on my revising and rewriting than I wanted to be, and I’m not sure right now if I can catch up again.  Certainly not in time to make my self-imposed goal.  Which makes me panic.  And there’s no need to panic, right?  After all, it’s not a ‘real’ deadline.  It’s just my own.  And I’m actually pretty accustomed by now to making my own deadlines as well as ‘real’ deadlines.

So I’m back to panic mode.  To distract myself earlier, I went over to my publisher’s website.  Each week, they update the ‘upcoming’ books in their bookstore.  Right now they’re up to a week before Hunting Medusa‘s release date.  Which means that in the next week, Hunting Medusa will be listed there, too.  That makes me feel a little less stressed.  I think for now, I’ll go visit my Hunting Medusa listing at one of the other online booksellers.  I can do this.  And I will.


By the way, I posted another little teaser on my Facebook author page last week, and am planning another next week, in case you want to stop by to check them out.
