Me and Him
Woke up this morning feeling very spry.
Asked the Lord to tell me why.
LIFE IS LIKE A BURNING CANDLE,
THERE AIN’T NOTHING GONNA HAPPEN TODAY
THAT YOU AND I CAN’T HANDLE.
Got done with a mess of scut work yesterday. Don’t ya just hate that stuff. Got to writing on my 1080’s historical baseball murder mystery and whacked out 3,200 words pretty good story. Funny thing is that the book almost writes itself. Characters keep taking charge and my muse fills in the rest.
When you get distracted from writing or any task, how do you handle it? Have you tried making a list of all the other projects or things that need to be done and taking the time off of the fun to get the drudgery done.
Or, do you sit stupified until you realize all things in you life are tied together and you alone control the knot.
In my advancing years I find I must keep a list of the tasks necessary for my daily existence to continue. Each day I try, TRY, to get them done. BUT, if I don’t schedule them into my day, they are still there the next day along with the next day’s chores. If I do that long enough I am buried and usually hungry cuz shopping was on one of those daily lists.
Be blessed. Go write, right after you catch up. Ketchup – need that from the store. On the list.
