Faced with a deadline,

1. I decide I have to read Trollope's 'Orley Farm'.
2. I cook a huge meal, rajma-rice, masala aloo, grilled chicken, rice kheer.
3. I watch 'Kashmir ki Kali'.
4. I feel ill, feverish.
5. I want to scrap everything that I have written so far. Who wants to read this crap? Does it make any sense at all? Is it meaningful? NO.
6. I take photos in the rain.
7. I spend evenings analyzing myself.
8. Find new blogs to link to, and new networks to join.
9. I use the Thesaurus option as I have never done before. Using four words where one would do. I just want to reach the 100,000 mark as soon as I can.

I hope my editor is not reading this.

Hey, how was the kheer? If it was thick and creamy, you got it right.

Grasshopper, Yes, the kheer turns out lovely. It's become my staple diet. And there goes my weight loss program.

Space Bar, Writing a secret. :)

Kheer and KKK...sigh. Sounds lovely.

Stop analyzing so much :-) Have faith, you write beautifully. And who is going to count to make sure you've reach 100000 words? 99990 should be enough ;-)

What you've been doing is called painting the wagon wheels- (when the crop is ready to be harvested_.
All the best. As memsaab says, stop analyzing so much!
