So here I am, trying to write and I've got a good start, but I think the holiday blues are setting in. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the holidays. But man, there's so much to do and so little time. I'm just feeling overwhelmed. And when I'm overwhelmed, I tend to procrastinate. Ugh. That only makes things worse. Let's face it, when there's not much time to get things done, procrastinating makes even less time. Yep, it's a time eater.
So, I think I need to post ways to stay focused. And hope they work on me. The number one rule would be to work/write first, then play, but time the play. So - I spent a solid hour of writing. That was good. My reward, I played on myspace for about thirty minutes. Now, I'm writing on my blog. Okay, so that's a form of procrastinating also, but it's healthy procrastinating. And as soon as I finish my thoughts here, I've promised myself that I will write for another hour. After that, I plan to relax in the jacuzzi with a good romance book. The second rule to staying focused is to take care of any home chores first that are making you feel guilty. So yeah, I loaded the dishwasher and fed the dog before sitting at my computer. And third, but not least, we must feed the muse. And this means total nurturing from food to music to scented candles. Make the cave a welcoming environment and stimulate that muse. So, does anyone have any other ideas on staying focused? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
On a totally different note, I got to ride in my first limo this past weekend. Too cool. As soon as I get pictures loaded from my camera, I'll try to post
