The kids are in bed. I can finally write. Where are my- ah, there are my novel notes. I read several paragraphs to get back into the story.
Did I make the car payment?
I add several sentences. I re-read and it’s awful. Delete it all.
Yes! Perfect idea!
I type eight words before stumbling into fog.
When was the field trip permission slip due? I unearth the form sent from school. Another week to procrastinate; I toss it aside.
I have the attention span of… aw, look at the adorable kitties!
Did I mention I have a blog?
In case you’re wondering what exactly you just read: Nancy at Spirit Lights the Way is having a little contest and she’s giving away prizes (number of prizes depends on number of entries). Click here to see the contest details and submit your own entry. It’s only 33 to 100 words…you can do it! (Mine came in right at 100 words. Whew!)
I chose to write about how I write (or don’t write, as often is the case). Now that I look at it, the format may not count as essay. It’s more of a peek into an average writing night for me. Scary, isn’t it? Let me tell you, it takes a lot of time to be this unproductive!
So it seems I have a short attention span and I can’t follow directions either. (I don’t have to wonder why I’m not a household name :))
