A Bit of a Rut

MENTAL STATUS: "Edgy". Want to write. Can't write. Dying to write. Can't write. By the time I have the time to write, too tired to write. Ugh. And so it goes.
Oh, and I have a dentist appointment today--but it's just a cleaning this time. Whew!

This is techinically the third day (not counting the weekend of course) of my daughter's spring vacation and all I have to show for it so far is a Build-a-Bear mermaid suit and red wig, a half eaten bunny cake, the high score on "Zoo Keeper", the ability to say I have watched The Planet of the Apes movie and two sentences to my current work in progress.

I'm beginning to think I need a better writing plan.

But, after my dentist appointment and visit with Mom, I will the take the little girlie to her friend's house for a play date and see how much I can get done today. My goal is 3 pages. I should get an A for determination at least.

Hope this vacation week is treating your writing better than mine.

I didn't write when my kids were young, but recently I had to write when my grands lived with us. It's tough, and you automatically feel guilty shooing them away and saying, "I'm working," but it's necessary to learn to do that if we're going to be successful published authors. Sigh...

Hope you accomplish your goal!

I can so relate! I hate it when this happens. Hopefully it will all start to flow again soon!

I am having a really hard time writing now with Kris gone. I don't have alot of free time away from 4 yo and he is at my feet playing all day. I take lots of breaks to do things with him but with hubby gone he needs more attention. I've got something in my brain for my chapter I've been stuck on and now I can't concentrate long enough to get it out.
