Still here, just busy

So, yeah.  I’m still here, and I’m still writing.  But I’m also hip-deep in the End of the Year nonsense.  I’m getting my 9th graders through Night, teaching units on Media Bias to my 10th graders, and grading essays for my departing Seniors.  It all has to be done under very tight deadlines in which there is literally no wiggle room.

I’m still writing between 200 and 800 words a night.  Weekends lately have been non-writing time, but I hope to write more when school is out for the summer.

I am quite tired.  I fall asleep within moments of going to bed; and I am a lifelong insomniac.

My daughter is not sleeping well; she’s going to bed at 7, but not falling asleep until 9 or later.  This is not helping my nerves or writing ability.
