Today’s one of those days where I woke up tired. I actually woke up before my alarm clock went off and I just kept rolling over, trying to fall asleep again. My attempts to do so failed rather unspectacularly and so I’ve just been plodding along through the day. This post is like Dead Dither Day, I think I’m entitled to maybe one of those per week. Maybe I’ll figure out some way to award myself Dead Day entries based on good behavior.

Mostly, I just want to go take a nap. It’s nearly 5 PM as I write this, which means it’d be a bad idea to try to take a nap now — it’s too late in the day. I was tired before I went to Megan’s party last night, and I have no idea how I’m going to feel tomorrow morning, or even later tonight. Did I accomplish what I set out to do this weekend?

Next week is the last week of October, and then I juggle the comic, the blog, and my novel for National Novel-Writing Month. I figure I can do two main things to help myself out next month: the first is to write much shorter blog posts. Ideally, I should be hitting 150-300 words per post, but I tend towards the upper limit.

The other thing I can do is dedicate a blog each morning to summarizing my progress in the novel. That’s almost like doing one fewer entry per day, and I could stick in little excerpts from the novel, that sort of thing. It’d be fun. :)
