When You Have a Window...

Hey, all!

I've been supercalifragilisticexpialidocious busy this week.
As a result, this post will be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious short.:)

I just wanted to share what I learned this week. And that is...

When you have a window, take it.

What does that mean? It means, I carefully planned all this writing time, and then I was presented with extra opportunities to write. But I wasted it, thinking I don't need that time because I planned my other time.
WRONGO. Because then all my carefully planned writing time got blown out of the water!

Thus, the lesson learned: when you have a window--for anything--don't waste it. Take it while you can get it, because life has a way of happening.

You're welcome. :)

Now I'm off to finish writing some blog posts for my upcoming blog tour coming up next month. And then I plan on trying out a scone recipe.

What are your plans today?

Pretty window and a good reminder!

Ayda Recknagel said...

Kudos to you for spelling out that word... twice no less!!!

I plan to live through one more work day and make it to the weekend with a smile on my face. :)

Linda G. said...

Yes! And thanks for the reminder. :)

Diane said...

What's that a bird in the hand thing.....? I am so guilty of squandering opportunities at times. Glad to know it's not just me. :O)

Jessica R. Patch said...

So true. When I know I have time to get something done, I try to do it with the thought, "What if something comes up or I get sick?" That's happened before.

How was exercise this morning? You sportin rock hard abs? ;) Have a great weekend.

Sutton Fox said...

I'm guilty! lol.

Great advice, Jennifer. :)

Linda Kage said...

Have fun scone-trying. I need to catch up on a bunch of backlog stuff. Ugh.

Connie Keller said...

I completely agree with you. You have to seize the moment. I planned to edit this morning, but that time is completely gone. :( Now I'm looking for a window to open.

Need a taste tester?

Carol Kilgore said...

Boy, do I ever hear you on this one. Real Life has been intervening in my Writing Life for the past couple of weeks, and I'm getting a little cranky.

Enjoy the scones :)

Used to be, when I saw a window, I had the irresistible urge to wash it until it sparkled. But I learned to stop looking AT windows so much and spend more time looking THROUGH them. Now I crawl right through 'em to seize the opportunities and enjoy life. Life's too short to do otherwise, and besides, what's a little bit of dirt between friends?

Ahh i hope you catch up soonest but I totally get you. The procrastination bug hits me more often than I'd like. Have a great weekend.

Yes, my mom always said, strike while the iron is hot :)

What kind of scones? You've made me hungry for one -- definitely a favorite breakfast pastry of mine :)

Shelley Munro said...

I'm taking your advice to heart. *step away from the Internet and take the dog for a walk*

Yes, I am. Off I go, and thanks for the advice. Have an awesome weekend, Jennifer.

Madeleine Maddocks said...

I can so relate to this one. I often plan time and have the time and then fill it with other things. You are so right.

Cheryl Klarich said...

Thank you for the awesome wisdom!!!
This really made me smile.

Loved your tea party post too!

Joanne said...

I hear you on the writing window! I'm putting together posts for my blog tour as well ... They're a latte fun, and I'm looking forward to it ...

Sarah Pearson said...

This is me! But I'm learning :-)

Lydia Kang said...

On that note, I should start writing, right now!

Susanne Drazic said...

I can so totally relate to your post. I'm trying to catch up on some blog reading today and then get back to some medical research I'm doing. Have a great week!
