Seriously. What is the Deal with Mondays?

I know I've posed this question on the blog before: Namely, what's the deal with Mondays? (Or, probably more accurate still, what's my deal with Mondays?) But it's a favorite topic of mine . . . especially on those Monday mornings when I've agreed to blog and I have no idea what to say.

Sort of like today, for example.

I mean, on a typical Monday morning, I think I'm doing good if I can find my way to the coffeemaker without tripping over the cat. As for why that is . . . .

Okay, I figure this could take me awhile. In the meantime, do what I usually do on a Monday morning and read your astrological forecast for the week.

I'm a Pisces and mine says that I should do some planning during the early part of the week.

Good advice. I'm planning on not doing much of anything until after the caffeine kicks in. *g*

What about you? What's your forecast for the week? Care to share?

I like this one:

And mine says:

You can, however, fight back effectively against another kind of thought police: the little voices in your head that love to monitor and judge your activities. It is now an excellent time to turn down the volume of the loud people from your past (and present!) whose expectations you have internalized.

This is a good one for me to keep in mind -- I am trying to get a new book started, and I had 10-12 pages I thought I liked, and then I start rethinking it all, thinking it's all wrong, etc and that it all has to be done over -- so maybe that's not the case and I just need to tweak it and move on.

Not a bad note to start the week out on. ;)

Well, as a fellow Pisces, I'm going to plan on more coffee this week. Does that count? :)

I'm one of those freakish people who love Mondays (fresh new week and all that crap). But I also found great enjoyment in ripping apart and reorganizing the playroom yesterday, so . . . . .

Hope your cat doesn't get too injured this morning. LOL

Count me among those who love mondays, because of that new start, fresh week, etc, etc, which is odd because I've been writing 7 days a week for decades,so you wouldn't think it made a difference, but I suspect it partly goes back to when that was the day I had the house to myself again (well, along with my characters) and there were so fewer interruptions. Then again, I was one of those kids who loved going to school (got me out of my strange house, lol) so maybe it goes all the way back to childhood.

Whatever, although I only believe my horoscopes on days I like it, here's todays, which is pretty generic, but hey, it's positive, so I'm going with it!

You don't know where life is going to lead you, and that's where the fun lies. Don't worry about 'what it all means' and go with it for now. More will be revealed later, when you know what to do with the knowledge.

Sam, good luck with that start! I personally love the time just before I begin writing on a new book, where it's still shimmering with that bright, etheral perfection in my mind. Which is where I am today, having sent off my Feb book last Tuesday, with the proposal for book #2 not due for another 3 weeks.

Since I've started working for myself, I like Mondays, too. Quite often, I work more on weekends, since that's when the conferences and booksignings tend to be. Mondays become almost a weekend day for me. They're a day when I usually don't have a lot of obligations. I can stay home, regroup, and get ready to face the rest of the week.

Now, when I had a day job and had to commute and all that, I loathed Mondays. Now they just mean peace and quiet.
