Does wine really help?

Craig's in Seattle until tomorrow night. Which means tonight is drinking wine and trying not to think about the fact that he's not here.

I wrote a 5k Mergana fic called The Best Part as a winning prize for someone who got a blackout in Trope Bingo at merlin_writers. I was working on that instead of an original story that's due tomorrow. Oops. I've had a bit of trouble getting motivated writing original work lately because the market is so damn glutted. Income is going down for almost all of the published authors I know, and it's discouraging.

I keep thinking I should get back to that Craigslist M/A fic I thought about extending, but I haven't updated in a year. I keep getting feedback on it, though, asking me to go on. I feel guilty since I never really intended it to be more than a one-shot as it was.

Blech. I'm moody. And I feel like I should be doing more than I am, but then getting motivated to do more seems to be beyond my reach. I miss when things were *fun*.
