I need to stay away from the internet if I want to finish writing my book. I’m on chapter 8, and I also wrote the last chapter and some stuff in the middle. That is also how I read novels. I often read the middle and end first just because.
So I am trying hard to resist the temptation of Facebook and reading blogs. It’s very difficult. I tried to read some stuff on writing and I wanted to bang my head against the wall when I read this: Revision and self-editing. I hope it helps any of you who are in editing stages. I clicked on the links which although maybe very useful I found to be well, very difficult to follow. Since I am not at the editing stage I hope to forget all about it for now.
Unfortunately I can’t sit and write all day because apparently family members need to be fed and the house can’t clean itself. There are lots of things for kids to throw garbage in when they are tidying up. Don’t forget to check all your vases when doing the spring cleaning.
I like vases. All shapes. All sizes. All colors.
I do not like what I find in them.
The start of a Guinness record holding rubber band ball. I am not adding the picture of some ‘organic’ material I found. It was either a dead animal or the remains of a school lunch sandwich from before last year’s summer vacation.
This is how I know one of my twins got hold of my camera.
There are other things besides spring cleaning that keep me from writing that NYT best-seller.
This is one of them.
What distracts you from doing that great thing you were born to do?

Wait – the family needs to be fed? Uh oh. And I’m not even writing a book.
Thanks for the smile, as always!
Best of Luck 😀

The internet is a huge distraction . I haven’t let housework distract me as I don’t do it anymore (well not much anyway) Your cat is adorable. Mine just sleeps on my feet while I type away.
The internet is such a distraction! I have been forcing myself to stay away (even form my blog) to get some writing done. Cats are so awesome aren’t they? We will have to convince heylookawriterfellow.
Walking the dog twice a day has become a great distraction!
I am so glad cats don’t need walks! Although I am tempted to take mine on one some day because she is great company.
