Unanswerable question

Why is it that when I have a writing project to do--a real project with a deadline! That I shouldn't divulge details about!--all I want to do is draw?

Why why why?

I have a short story to write and send off before I leave for Context, and I'm in the middle of writing the rough draft. I even know what the story is about and what to write next. So naturally, I'm full of inspiration and ambitions for several months' worth of drawing projects. My solution is that when I've finished my 1,000 words for today, I get to draw for as long as I have left before it's time to fetch Felix from daycare. So naturally, with 300 words left to write on the rough draft, I'm posting in my LiveJournal.

People, what is wrong with me?

Don't answer that.
