As Monday’s go, this one wasn’t so bad. Did the day job, ran a few errands including grabbing some groceries. Dinner and then I was going to do some writing.
Let me just say this. Bad habits are easy to form and difficult to break. Good habits are hard to form and easy to break.
Eating dinner, I got sucked into watching the news. I’ve become a news junkie. With what’s happening in the world, it’s easy to fall into this trap and get sucked in. I was going to watch something I had recorded as to limit my TV viewing time, but I didn’t have anything recorded. <sigh>
So I watched far more TV than intended. I’m working on it, though. Why?
Cuz I sat down and bashed out 1000 words in about 20 minutes. That’s why. The story is starting to flow again. I knew it’d take a couple of days for the dam to break and tonight, it did.
Now I’m upset with myself for sitting in front of the idiot box for as long as I did. <grumble>.
I’m working on it. I know that sitting in front of the TV is easy. Requires no effort. It’s good to stay informed, but it is far too easy to just stay put and not get anything done.
To that point, getting myself to start writing again, I can come up with 1000 excuses not to write. Not to do this blog every day. Not to get things accomplished I want to accomplish. Sitting and writing will become a habit once more. I know the more time I spend sitting in this chair and typing words, the more I’ll write and the more I’ll want to write. I totally get that.
It’s just so easy to sit and not do that.
As I said, I’m working on it. More words will happen tomorrow. I’m going to peck away at the keyboard for a bit longer and finish the scene I’m currently working on. I’ve already got this cliffhanger planned. Can’t wait to dip into the next chapter. <grin>
Until Next Time!
