Variety is the Spice of Life

I didn't get any writing done at work yesterday, but I did manage to crank out a page and half (single spaced) last night. Yay for me!!!

The day job has become a bit boring. I know it's just a phase, but yesterday was horrendous in terms of getting myself motivated. It was sheer torture sitting at my desk and staring at the words on the screen. Even surfing the 'Net became boring, and that's pretty sad! But really - there's only so long you can stare at a computer before you want to get up and run screaming through the office.

Ah well. Just one of those days...

I told my husband last night that the reason I really like the fall and winter months is because I have more time. I know that sounds weird, but here's the thing...when it's dark at 5 p.m., I don't have to round the kids up from outside, persuade them to go to bed, and then try and get myself to bed. The hours seem to fly during the summer evenings and I don't feel like I have enough time to get stuff done.

On another note...

I'm working on a children's book with the graphic designer here at work. He's very talented and the story is great - I'm making some changes, editing, cutting, adding, etc. It should be lots of fun.

  1. I feel your pain about work. Although for once I'm actually busy today. But I hate those days I'm so bored I want to tear my hair out and bang my head against the wall.

  3. Rene - He actually wrote the book, but I am editing it and changing some things around. It didn't quite work how it was, so I'm coming up with some ideas to make it better.

  6. Michelle - It's a picture book. The graphic designer is going to draw all the pictures and even has an idea for the cover. It's a really cool story, so I'm pretty excited.

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...
