This week has been a busy one–I received my second round of revisions for my upcoming William Morrow book, so I have to get cracking on those, plus I’m revising my Regency-set historical, AND dealing with parent/teacher conferences and being sick and stuff.

The worst part about not feeling well is dealing with the resulting lethargy–it’s really hard for me to get motivated when I’m headache-y and grouchy, so I look to outside forces to aid me.

For me, the outside forces include such carrot-on-stick ploys as “You can play Scramble once you’ve finished this chapter,” or “No wine unless you’ve at least opened the document” to “After this, you can google image pix of Michael Fassbender for at least five minutes.”

How do you reward yourself?
