I Invite You to Whine

Because I’m going to whine, too. This is the whiney post.

1. I would like to know who is responsible for cutting 2 hours out of my day. That’s the only way it’s possible that by the time I finish all the stuff I have to do, or decide what I’m going to ignore, it’s time for bed and I got no where near enough writing done.

2. Why, WHY, when I have a sign on my door that says “DO NO DISTURB unless you’re bleeding, maybe” do people think that means “HEY CAROLYN WANTS TO TALK!”

3. I have the cutest shoes ever in the world. They have sparkles! But I think they’re making my feet hurt. ::cries inconsolably::

4. Who put all this junk in my room? And WHY, after I spend an hour throwing a bunch of it away, is there MORE of it? Why?

5. My email is breeding. Great. Because that means it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the bits and bytes start doing the same thing. Don’t turn your back on your computer for a minute.

Some good news

1. Page proofs came for Not Proper Enough. I finished them in a day. I think it came out good.

2. Arjun Rampal tweeted a link to video of him doing a shoot for Men’s Health Magazine. Oh my. You can watch the video on my Arjun fan page. Scroll down a bit to the videos. Probably safe for work, except it will be blazingly obvious that you’re not working so wait till you get home or watch on your phone.

Leave your best whine in the comments.

P.S. I just put in tags for the post and there was already one for whining.

    Of COURSE there was already a tag for whining! Whining is incredibly healthy and therapeutic. I don’t even know where to begin. I WANT to whine, but I can’t decide which thing to whine about. Wahhhh!

  2. SonomaLass says:

    Why does it take longer to grade poor quality student projects than good ones? And a corollary whine, why don’t I get more good ones?

  3. Hi Carolyn,

    My whine: the corneas of my eyes keep tearing off. Excruciating pain and weeks to recover. All due to dry eyes and I’m already doing everything right (genteal, muro 128, slick bandages over eyes, humidifier) but those dry eyes shrivel in REM sleep (eyes flutter up) and simply opening my eyes in the morning tears off a layer. My doc says Restasis won’t work. Off to the ER . . .

  4. Thanks much for your concern!

    I can read again! Whoppee!! I look forward to your new releases 🙂 I didn’t realize you were a single mom too. I know the grind of the day job. God. I don’t know how you wrote so many books while working and raising your son. I could only manage 4 in the past ten years.

    Awesome meeting on Saturday!
