productive writer?

Today I've been remarkably productive. I got through a whole heap of things that I've been procrastinating about. Everything seemed to work out well and go easily.

Is all this productivity today related to the fact that yesterday I was almost completely UNproductive? I would start one thing and then move to another. Nothing I did seemed to go easily at all. By the end of the day I was ready to cry.

So today I'm thinking, maybe it takes both kinds of days. Maybe the days when we're feeling frustrated, clueless and overwhelmed are just a sign that we're rearranging something underneath the surface, something that will help us out another day.

Impossible to really know. But if you're feeling tired, upset, overwhelmed or just plain terrible, remember that everything changes, sometimes as soon as tomorrow.

Thanks for the encouraging words about feeling tired and/or unproductive. Obviously, this is my current demon to wrestle down. How do I balance that constant guilt of needing to spend every moment productively against the need to replenish from time to time? You didn't give me the answer, but you gave me some more questions. Just as important, I say! :D

Hello :)

Finding this blog is like finding a a long lost friend... I had read 'The Seer and the Sword' while still at school, and now I find your blog :)

It's been many years since I met and became friends with Torina and Landen. Unfortunatley, I haven't been able to find the rest of the books anywhere here, but meeting you again is a very pleasant reminder.

Thank you for the books :)

Hi Victoria,
I was wondering why you don't write in your blog very often? And.. are you writing anything new? :)

I emailed you several years ago letting you know that I thought me finding Seer and the Sword was fate. Thanks for replying to that email. Also, I think you should know that Seer and the Sword continues to be my favorite book! I finally just bought and finished reading two companion books. I reallllly enjoyed the Oracle.

Write more often! :)
