My Left Brain Hates My Right Brain

I just returned from a long walk in the park with my husband, stepson, and daughter (plus the two dogs). Unfortunately, it didn't clear my head enough to deal with the problem I'm having with my manuscript.

I know my subconscious is working on it - I go to bed thinking about it and I wake up thinking about it. But the solution has yet to manifest itself.

I don't know how much time I'll spend on it today, especially since we have company coming over tonight for the 4th - just a few friends, nothing big. But hubby is planning on grilling (yum!).

My stepsons leave tomorrow for Kentucky and thankfully, I don't have to work (did I mention I love my company? We always get the day off before and after a holiday). But I suppose I'll spend most of the rest of the day cleaning the giant pit of uckiness that is my house. Remember how I bragged about how clean my house was last weekend when my husband and stepsons were gone? And remember how I said within 5 minutes of them coming home, it would be a disaster? Well, I was right - and it hasn't been clean since.

On another note...

I'm thinking I should watch The Patriot sometime today...it has a way of really reminding you what the 4th of July is really about. When I think of our incredible victory over one of the most powerful empires in the world at the time...well, it is just awe-inspiring.

Celebrate your freedom today!

  1. Hi! Found you via Suzanne. :) I live in a suburb of Omaha, so I'm all aflutter to find another romance writer in the area (although I'm still an aspiring).

    Best of luck in figuring out how to get your exercising back on track. I'm in the same boat, trying to figure out where I went wrong, and how I can go right.

  2. Hope you had a good 4th of July! I enjoyed my long Canada Day weekend. It was a great break and I got lots of writing done.

  4. Sorry, beg to differ on The Patriot. I hated that movie. Except for Jason Isaacs. I suppose the message is great for the 4th of July, but Heth Ledger whined his way through the movie, I was ready to kill him myself. I suppose where I really lost it was the whole "bundling" scene. Ugh...talk about taking artistic license. Jason Isaacs was incredibly hot, however and I'd watch the movie again just for him.

  8. Don't worry, the solution will surface...at the very moment when you don't have a pen or paper handy. :)

    I liked parts of the Patriot and other aspects were okay. LOL on the bundling, Rene. Yeah, I raised an eyebrow at that one, too.

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...
