I don't know if there's anything you can do, other than to go to the iowa writer's workshop and reaffirm my sense that it *is* possible to follow the path where your talents lie...
Thank you for calling yesterday. Sorry I didn't call back. I've been tired and aimless. I did finally get unpacked from our san francisco trip, though.
I have these bios I'm supposed to compile for the AWC Top Michigan Women in Computing program-- ten bios of fantastically accomplished women, all doing jobs I would enjoy doing. I had expected working on this to be fun and inspiring, but whether it's being premenstrual or something else, I've just found it feeds into my bitterness. And the desire to impress the women involved adds to the pressure to do it well and then leads to avoidance of it for fear of failing to do so.
I did meet with our program book editor yesterday and found I had lots of good suggestions. Just still no copy.
