We interrupt this writing to bring you your life. Funny how that happens. I had plans to reach the 20k mark this week. After last week's successful writing mentality, I was up to the challenge.
And then life happened. Didn't see that one coming.
Most of the time I'm able to back-burner my life. Chores, I'll get to them later (do not, I repeat, do not, try the white glove test in my home). Cooking, that's what my husband is for. Yard work, it's going to rain someday this week, let's pretend it's today. See, I'm really good at delegating out my responsibilities.
The life thing that happened is pretty major and pretty important, something I couldn't ignore any longer, but the news I received was so unexpected that it threw me for an emotional loop. And the residual shock waves continued on through today. My thoughts kept veering from Bixby back to the news. Plus, I had to cut short my writing time to step up and act on the news. Life gets in the way.
Granted, the week's not over yet, just my most productive writing time (aka days off) are. I work early the next three days and when I work early, I don't get as much writing done as when I close. I might just have to readjust my priorities tomorrow and go writing after work, so I can at least hit the 17K mark.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog...beeeep.....leave a comment....beep......
