Up All Night

Posted By U2Literary On 12.7.2009 @ 4:00 am In General | No Comments

I wish I could write “out all night”. It would be so way more interesting. But it’s quite the opposite. I’m on the verge of finishing this thing around furious Christmas shopping. I can’t stop. I slept maybe an hour and a half before I was up again with buzzing scenarios both for Christmas Eve dinner (did I really need to plan it just now?) and the end of this novel. I want to finish it soon and be freed during the Away phase of novel-writing, that depressing yet elating time when you’ve finished and the thing isn’t full of problems yet because you have yet to reread it. I can rejoin the human race. Also, I’ve spent enormous quantities of money these past couple of days. I finally found a dress that might work for the holidays (that are around the corner) and I have to order all the things I’ll need for the multiple-course dinner I make for the famiglia on Christmas Eve. I’ll be squeezed for time thanks to not arriving until the morning of the 23rd (if all goes well).

There are other baking chores, too. The gingerbread house for the Daring Bakers, cookies for next weekend’s “cookie swap”, food for the work Christmas party, and biscotti to take home. Damn. I’d better get back to doing what I should be doing. It’s time to reclaim my weekends.
