Words, Weights, Whatever

The following post is a rant session. Please leave if you dislike such items. I'll have more pleasant things to say in the future.

As many of you know, I earn cash on the side writing posts for an automotive blog. What most of you don't know is that I've been receiving criticism on my drafts. While the editors mean well, it's reach the point where I'm spending double the amount of time than usual to make the each post 'acceptably' perfect. Now the joy of writing each one is drained and replaced by near overwhelming fear: fear of failure but, more importantly, fear I am wasting too much time on a paltry amount of money.

Maybe I need a break. But the blog's short-handed at the moment and I feel I would be abandoning them. But I don't want to keep approaching each post as though I'll get criticized for it especially for the little amount I get paid for each one.

What to do? R. says I'm being overly sensitive. Maybe I am. I usually feel that way when I'm very tired. I've been staying up late to write posts. The fatigue may be catching up with me.

Rant over. At the moment.

Weekend Words

Sigh. One day I'll steal time from sleeping and truly update this blog.

Anyway, had a great time over the weekend. Spent Saturday at the Renaissance faire which was only marred by a telephone call from mother. Sigh. Sunday we enjoyed much of the morning away reading while spent the rest of the day at bookstores and watching anime.

Who links to me?
