Mondays Are Not for Writing

I tried to write yesterday. Tried is the operative word.

I've come to the conclusion that in future, Mondays are to be avoided in terms of writing. If I could avoid them altogether, well, that would be great, too, but I've got to be somewhat realistic.

Even work was a struggle. The words didn't flow. They were stuck somewhere on a turnpike next to a jackknifed semi. And they weren't arriving anytime soon.

When I tried to work on my novel last evening, I had more of the same. Finally, after forcing myself time and time again to look at the computer screen and do something, I had to just shut the laptop and surrender to the inevitable: Mondays are not for writing.


  1. That was MY Monday, too!

    How's the song go? "Monday, Monday, can't trust that day..."

    (Nope, can't remember the group that sang it.)

    But even crap writing is better than no writing--remember what they say, you can't edit a blank page.

  2. I think Rene hijacked monday :) Actually yesterday was a good day for me, but not as good as it could have been LOL. Sorry your day wasn't fruitful :/

  3. My Monday was pretty much a write-off too. Did some work on my course for next month, but due to insomnia, I was pretty out of it. Plus we had a business meeting in Sechelt. I'm with you - Monday's aren't for writing.

    Hope today goes better for you :-)

  4. "Monday, Monday".... wasn't that sung by the Mamas and Papas?

  5. I always write or work really well on a Monday ... but it all goes downhill from there ...


I love to hear from you!
