On Writerly Brain Near Deadline

Last night...

(At 8pm) - Hmm, why am I hungry?
(At 8.15pm) - No, really, why am I hungry?
(At 8.30pm) - Oh. I forgot to eat dinner.

Yes, true story.

Ah...the perils of being a writer with deadlines.

LOL... that's why I keep snacks on my desk. NOT good for my backside but... helps me keep on task so I'm not wandering around hunting for something to eat. LOL.

Yeah, but it was for a good cause! How's the writing going, by the way? Any chance of an excerpt in the near future? *shameless ploy to find out what's going on*

Haha that's me everyday!!! I take care of my nephews who are 1 and 2 yrs old and while I'm making them food and chasing them around I forget to feed myself...really I forget!! So at night when they are asleep I'm wondering why am I SO hungry I could swear I remember eating!???

But really it was me feeding my nephews and never myself!! haha

Don't worry Nalini I completely understand!!

Now when don't I feel like that?

LOL I do that a lot and am not a writer. I usually have Why does my head hurt right before the realization that I didn't eat.

Jennifer K.: I like you're ploy. Hope it works *crosses fingers*

LOL... I've done that, and I'm not even a writer. I just lose track of time, especially on a deadline.

Oh, I had things like that happen back in university when I was working on a painting or a sculpture. Then there was that one time when I didn't realise I'd forgotten dinner till the next morning...but that's a whole other story...

LOL! Nalini, yes, I think that's happened to all of us. But, usually my stomach protests and I HAVE to eat or else sleep, either one, hehe.
