I need a magic wand. Something to wave over me to snap me out the funk I'm in. Call it After-Christmas-blues, Pre-New-Year jitters, whatevuh! But, darnittoday, I must and I will get a little writing done.
Some days are just plain impossible, if you know what I mean.
Yesterday, I sat down at the laptop to write. I meant to, I really did. But, instead of writing, here is a list of the things I did:
I tossed a ball to Izzy. Izzy is a dog.
Then I sat down to type. Then I got up again.
I pet Tux. Tux is Izzy's cat.
After that, I sat down to type. Then I got up again.
I vacuumed the den. The living room.
I cleaned the toilet bowl.
After that, I sat down to type.
Then, I got up again.
I went to the kitchen and made a pot of chili.
I returned to my desk. Sat down. Then I got up, again.
I walked to the mail box. Got the mail. Picked up the paper in the driveway.
Returned to the house. Stirred the pot of chili.
Well, you get the picture.
I did sit down to work on my writing. And after I picked my nails, I did write.
But today. I just gotta sit and get the job done.
Hey, if I can write a book. So can you.
