I’ve decided I need one of these:

I thought I had a teeny bit more time to figure out promo for Hunting Medusa, but it turns out I need to have my list of ideas at least by the end of the week. So now I’m panicking. I have a few ideas, but none of them seem amazing right now, and my day-job-fried-brain is uncooperative. I know I have notes and ideas tucked away in that “someday” folder in one of my filing cabinets. And I’ll dig those out in another day when I have a day off from the day job. But until then, my brain won’t shut down. What about this? No, that idea sucks. Well, how about–no, that sucks, too. What? You don’t have conversations with yourself about things like this? No? Just me?
So I attempted a few distractions this evening, but those were miserable failures, as well. So I decided to come share here. At least if I write it down, I can look at it and know it’s not as bad as my brain is trying to tell me. I have ideas and suggestions. I just need to look at them when I haven’t had a migraine all day, and when I don’t have to worry about getting up early in the morning again for work.
And for one final distraction for myself before I try to shut down my busy brain for a little sleep:
My shiny new cover art! isn’t it pretty?
Looking at that always makes me feel better. And I won’t think about the fact that it will be ready to go out into the world in under five months. Nope.
