Word Wednesday - Quandary

quandary \KWAHN-duh-ree; -dree\, noun:
A state of difficulty, perplexity, doubt, or uncertainty.
I’m often in a quandary.
Which manuscript should I work on next? What should I get my husband for Christmas. Paper or plastic. (Oh wait I have totebags from a bajillion conferences that I can use.)
I’m a decisive person, really, I am. It’s just when the choice isn’t clear cut I find it harder. I was in a quandary for several months over quitting a job. I had another one lined up. The new one had a better boss. (Turned out to be the right decision to quit that job.)
What decisions do you make on a daily basis that put you in a quandary?

Today I'm trying to decide out how to rewrite chapter 4 of my WIP so that it doesn't suck. Unfortunately, three games of Soduku haven't shed any light on my dilemma. So it looks like I may be in this same quandary tomorrow.

Quandary - good one. I'm in it.

Started NaNoWriMo, but got sick, got well, am sick again. Also had lots of guests on my blogspots to set up and promote.

Now I'm not sure if I should try to do my NaNo book or finish two others that I already started.

Then again, I may end up going to bed early, although I think only time will shake my latest cold/flu thingee.

Jack was in a quandry. Should he jump hundreds of feet from the dragon's snout to the rocks below, or be fried to a crisp when the dragon let out a great bellow of fire? Decisions, decisions.
