For some odd reason I find myself extremely distracted from my writing. I find myself doing the most asinine things instead of writing. I’m reading blogs, writing stuff for my own blog, watching T.V., peeping out the window trying to see what is going on with my neighbors and their shenanigans. So many distractions (however I need my daily dose of Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory so I will continue to watch). I keep telling myself that I need to be writing the damn book. But alas I succumb to other desires….
In other news, I had a near miss with a mental institution. I know some are thinking….What? She hasn’t been already? Nope I haven’t, however this book stuff is making me absolutely crazy. I feel better now, I had some time to sit down and think. One thing I did was…I TURNED OFF THE WORD COUNT…I have been searching high and low for the perfect number of words. Then it was brought to my attention that I need to write until I finish telling the story. If it fits into 40,000 words then so be it, if not and I require more then so be it. I was advocating my own insanity by worrying too much. I have enough on my plate with the character development, blogs, book covers, pricing, marketing, etc.! It was getting out of hand, don’t get me wrong I am having a blast going on this journey. I want to write, I want other people to read it and enjoy it. I am not perfect, my book will not be perfect, and that is the way things are. However I will strive to try to make it as painless as possible for everyone involved. Well…I’m off to chase butterflies, should be writing….
