Love it. That was my yesterday!

Eliza said...

Thats me every day! Not writing but everything I do, no self discipline or concentration at all.

Reb Alexander said...

So that's why it takes three hours to get started!

Christine Rains said...

Ha! I know that sort of day.

Old Kitty said...

You check your work email while on a day off!?!? Desist immediately!
That'll leave no. 12 free for more coffee! Yay! Take care

Laura Marcella said...

LoL, I can so relate to this kind of day! Good luck getting started! You know, after you check your email and Twitter and pet the cats one more time... ;)

Talli Roland said...

Haha! I can *so* relate to this!

Tracy Z. said...

I wrote a thousand words on my way to check my email. i opened the file to add a few ideas and BAM it flowed until my stomach said feed me.

Add three kids and a husband to that, and you've just described my day. :D

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Have you been peeking in my window?

Debbie said...

Ditto. And then it was tea-time. However, whilst the salmon was doing its thing, I managed to complete that third chapter.

You have a typical writing day down to a tee. My suggestion is to disconnect the internet or go somewhere you can't access it. Recently I had to invigialte a 3 hour exam. I took my notebook and whilst checking that no one was cheating or needing more paper I wrote more then I ever do if I'm on the computer -oh the temptation - take me to a nunnery I need some silence!

The Golden Eagle said...

LOL. It's so easy to get distracted. :P

Janet O'Kane said...

For cats read dogs and chickens, but apart from that you've pretty well nailed my sort of day. Loved it.

jbchicoine said...

...adding to that list, I could add, Comment on Jaynes blog...! :)

Jane said...

Oh GOD. That was my day. Except I'm not as honest as you. I call it 'researching' on the internet. Even when that includes 'researching whether that Vivienne Westwood jacket is mine yet.' Great blog!

That is hilarious! I think I just read my brain on paper. :-) Have a wonderful weekend!

Bob Sanchez said...

This is perfect. It's why I love writing, too!

Dolly said...

So well put. That is often how I am when a blank sheet of paper in my sketchbook stares up at me ...

orbit said...

Oh, so many can relate! If only I were stronger! My blog has turned into my excuse for setting what I hope to be a first novel aside every f#@*ing day!
