Exhaustion Has Taken Over

I am so exhausted!  I finally submitted the flash fiction story yesterday and it was about time too.  I wasn’t sleeping well — all I could think about was different ways to improve the story.  I wanted to submit it Monday, then Tuesday, then Wednesday….  I think the story got stronger with each edit, but it felt like it was starting to get to the point that I was just being nit picky.  I really wanted to submit it just so I could get away from it.  Obviously I hope it wins, but even if places in the top 20 I’ll still get rewarded for my efforts.  Heck, even if it doesn’t place I’ll at least get the critique so I know what I’m doing wrong — that’s something.

I was looking forward to taking the day off today now that it’s done, but I’m too tired to do anything.  I’m only writing this post so I get a little bit of writing in today.  Although even if I had energy to get out, I couldn’t anyway.  There is a wind advisory today — 66mph wind gusts — so there’s really nothing to do.  I’ll just rest up today and get back to writing tomorrow.
