Brain? What brain?

Currently, I am trying to deal with:

a) Actual work (ie, getting ready for next year)
b) Way overdue professional work (embarassingly late book review, ack)
c) Even more overdue writing (um... yeah, hiiiii....)

And my brain is having none of it, thank you very much. Just won't do it. This is especially annoying in the case of c, because, dang it, I've been looking forward to having time for fun writing, and now that I do, my brain is hiding in a corner and refusing to play nicely.

The question then becomes, is this the result of:

a) The mental exhaustion of having completed a significant project.
b) Well, several significant projects. Errr.
c) Lack of sleep.
d) Weird twitchiness about not being able to get my brain to work leading to my not being able to make myself go to bed at a reasonable hour, leading to c.
e) Cutting out caffeine and cutting way back on sugar.*
f) Stress due to any and all of the above.


*Previous caffeine consumption had reached fairly staggering levels-- and not even staggering levels of reasonably natural sources of caffeine like coffee or tea.
