Tuesday Thoughts

 Wednesdays are my day off, and Mondays come after Sunday which is my other day off.  So Tuesdays always seem like a bridge day, a day to almost ignore in the road to Wednesday. 

On Tuesday morning, unless I have something serious pending, I start thinking about what I need to accomplish on Wednesday.  I'm starting to feel sorry for Tuesday, it is just a placeholder on my calendar.  Except...I get Chinese food from Chin's Kitchen on Tuesday nights.  Happy, happy me. 

It is also the 16th of the month which means if I am writing a story for the August ALEC competition, I really have to get going.  I know how I wanted to write it for two weeks, but have been involved in Helyanwe's story instead because she's been more strident.  But she's going to have to meld to the background for a short time, even though I am at a critical junction in her story, because I would like to do a quick write-up for ALEC.  I always have problems with ALEC though, because I don't have a beta of my own and this is one of the rare stories that I can't post on my writer's board because it is a competition piece that gets submitted anonymously.  Of course, anyone familiar with my writing and characters would know it is me, so I also have to jump through some hoops to disguise, or at least not name, my non-canon characters.  It's a dance, and I don't necessarily do it well :-)  But I want to try again :-)
