Monday post

Drifting in and out of the writing world as I do, everyone else seems to be incredibly productive. And then there's me. I make all kinds of goals, and then I follow that up with all kinds of excuses. Part of the problem is I'm addicted to time wasters like surfing the internet or watching mindless TV. I sit down to rest and instead of having quiet time, I turn on the TV or grab my computer and before I know it, the evening is gone. ARGH! Why do I do that?

My latest writing goal was to write a page a day. That was a couple of weeks ago and I have 3 pages.

How does anyone stay focused?

Then it's also summer break and the kids are home. Is it wrong to count the days for them to go back to school? I love them and all- just maybe not 24/7!!
(As I'm writing this my 7 year old is sharing a cat book with me- on my bed, in my room, at 9:57 p.m.)

Me, "I think it's time for you to go to bed."

Her, "Never!"

That's what's happening here in the sunshine state- how 'bout you?


  1. I'm sorry, Rose. Maybe you need a break, something that will refresh you and you can tackle the writing anew.

  2. The sad thing is that I did have a break! I think I just need to focus.
