I really don't have a good reason to, either. I went to the writing group last night, and the short story was well-received. One of the other writers' stories half killed me with trying to be polite. We've read four chapters of Joe's POV and now we get two chapters of his wife's POV covering the same events? AND her motivations are exactly what her husband thought they were.

It was not badly-written, just dull. And he went on about how, if I'd read the whole novel from Joe's POV and then read her POV it would be more interesting. But no. Just... no.

Then I couldn't sleep, and woke early when I finally did. I got my hours in today, but I'm still two behind for the week. *sigh* I can make up some time tomorrow, my "day off."
:P

The other thing is... I don't know if it's the writing, or the generally feeling down, or the lack of sleep, but I'm just not very into anything right now. Not the writing or anything fannish or anything. I feel old and ugly and less-than-talented.

Part of it may be that, when I express concern that certain politicians speak with authority about "God's laws" someone always takes it to mean something I didn't say, like, "Christians should not be allowed to express their opinions!" Whence These Flowers? REALLY?

Christians dominate public offices at every level. The majority of the government is made up of Christians. What makes all my sphincters pucker at once is when one of them decides to speak for God, or claims, implicitly or explicitly, to know God's Will for the country.

Because then, people who disagree with them cannot merely be reasonable people with a difference of opinion. They are IN LEAGUE WITH TEH DEBIL!!!!11!!ONE!

To say, whoa, maybe it's possible that you're not hearing the Voice of God, is to persecute the poor Christians. Yes, it is persecution now, to disagree with a political agenda that you find uneven, inequitable and lacking in focus.

*sigh*

To cheer me up, I'm posting some links and things:
