So yes, I’ve been a little distracted by real life these days; work, family, commitments, and so on and so on. I’m sorry but I just found that previous statement a little crazy – distracted by real life? Seems a little backwards to me but here I go digressing already….
I’ve been away from writing for about a week now. I was getting up every morning to write but this past week I have slept in. I just couldn’t drag my fanny out of bed when the alarm went off at 0500.
I should set a schedule for myself and then actually implement this schedule. I’ve set a schedule in my head before but then I allow myself to go astray for whatever reason. I need to practice discipline. I am so undisciplined it’s not even funny.
The past month I’ve been following an online writer acquaintance while she has been on her beach writing retreat. Oh how I wish I could have something like that for myself. LOL But I don’t think I could do it, I’d feel too guilty leaving everyone here on their own, even though I KNOW they would be perfectly fine without me. You should go read all about it on her blog, I’ve been living vicariously through her these last few weeks. Her experience is quite inspiring and encouraging.
While I haven’t written anything all week, I did manage to meet with another writer face to face yesterday, two writers actually. We’ve kind of set up every Saturday to meet and write with each other for a couple of hours. So yeah, I didn’t write all week but I did write yesterday with them.
What am I going to do today? Well, everyone in the house is GONE today so after writing this blog entry I will turn off the television, go take a shower, and then sit down to write. But don’t you know I have ironing to do, the bathtub needs to be scrubbed, the living room needs a good vacuuming, the desk in our bedroom needs to be organized again and cleaned up, I should probably look at my weekly schedule, and blah blah blah. Yeah, you get the idea.
