It's been an irritating week in many ways.  I won't bore readers with the details, but the problem's been people rather than the usual inanimate objects.  While I might not enjoy waking up at four in the morning with things whirling around in my head, at least events have woken me up in other ways too.  
It's all too easy to get settled and forget where you were heading when you started out, to get locked into certain ways of thinking.  This week, I've found myself with renewed motivation and exploring new possibilities.  Where it will finally lead, I'm not sure, but it feels exciting.  Add to this a birthday and an honourable mention for my flash story, Her Odious Majesty, in the Multi-Story Competition and maybe the week hasn't been so bad after all.
