Those Darn Yucky Days

I had a yucky day today. I'm not quite sure why it hit me so hard. I even exercised this morning - took my dog for a nice, long walk. Hubby took the kids to the local fun center and so I had the house to myself.

Perfect writing time, right?

Wrong-o. Not today.

Everything just sort of got to me today. My health, my weight, my writing...so I went shopping. Not exactly the best thing to do when you hate how you look. I used to be a size 7 all throughout college and only went up to a size 9 when I met my hubby. It was the horrid birth control shot that started this roller coaster ride.

But I digress. I shall not bore you with the gruesome details!

I came home and popped in a James Bond movie - Goldeneye. I've been on a real movie kick this weekend - just didn't want to do anything else (besides that research trip to the library yesterday).

And for some really bizarre reason, I felt completely restored after I watched it. Was it the movie or the Reese's peanut butter cups I found stashed in the cupboard?

At any rate, I felt like cleaning. So I marched down to my office in the basement and went at it. Sweeping, dusting, organizing...I can see my desk again. If I had a digital camera, I'd take a picture and show you, but alas, I don't. So you'll just have to take my word for it.

I don't know if I'll get to my writing tonight, but it's okay if I don't.

My characters are acting a bit stiff right now - not sure why. But I hope to break through their block. I might be writing it in the wrong POV - I've done that before and switched it, and it worked out great. So we'll see what happens.

Onward! :-)

  2. I've had that POV switch thing save me before too. And sometimes not. *g* Good luck!

  3. Good luck with the POV switch! And Reese's Peanut Butter Cups can fix _any_ problem. :)

  4. Chocolate cures all, especially when mixed with Peanut butter!! Looks like you did something productive with the day after all. Hope the POV switch helps. I do that too after I struggle with a scene for a bit, then wonder why I didn't just think of it from the start.

I love to hear from you!

One Day at a Time

I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
