I have tons of work now, but the motivation is still lacking. And no matter how many little break I take, I still end up one or two articles short each night. but starting today I will not let myself go to bed until I have all 11 articles done... hopefully it'll be a bigger number, but I doubt it since I am writing this instead of article #5.
On a positive note, I have finally finished my short story for the contest I want to enter. All I have to do is convince myself that it's worth the $10 entry fee. I'll probably send it before the end of the weekend. I really hope I win. I kinda need the $1000 prize money. And recognition that fiction is not just a silly hobby.
