Today, I feel the need to unplug from the computer for a while. Oh, I do not kid myself this will be a total unplug from sun up to sun down. I know me.
But I'm feeling a bit too much like I've got too many plugs draining power, you know? And I need to write this book.
So I'm going to make a very concerted effort to be somewhere else with my Alphie, or the laptop in a place where I have to pay for Internet (and therefore won't). Once I reach my goal, I'll be back to see what y'all have been up to!
Do you ever feel the need to unplug? Are you successful at it, or do you still manage to let the energy be drained away as you try to keep too many things going at once?
Monday: The beauties of Twitter. Unless I change my mind. 🙂
I seriously need to unplug from a lot of things… Internet, outside distractions (like cheerleader hair ribbons, which still need to be made, Ah-hem….) and worry.
Have a most productive day, Lynn. Write on!
Unplug, Kathy! It’ll do you wonders! I reached my word count goal for the day! Woohoo! Now, should I desire, I may play. If I feel like working some more, I can.
What a relief.
Kathy, you have to put yourself and your writing first at least for an hour a day. I know you have responsibilities, but you deserve some “me” time. Hugs!
I made my goal today too! Granted it wasn’t a huge goal — just to finish the chapter– but it was a bit of a slog. Love scenes are difficult for me to write (I don’t want them to sound all cheezy or too purple-prose-y, but they can’t be to clinical or blunt either. Sigh.)
I wish I could play now, but laundry and errands await!
Hey, PC! I understand about the love scenes, believe me! And the errands. 🙁
Hope you’ve had a good weekend unplugged. I know exactly what you mean. In my job (and with writing when I actually manage to do any!) I use the computer so much that my eyes end up hurting and I forget what fresh air feels like!!
