Some days aren't easy. It seems like the world is against you. Your focus is pulled between multiple projects, cleaning, work, family, friends. Over and over again you sit down to write a page and barely get a paragraph...if you get that far.
I feel fantastic for yesterday's focus - I finished one book and got it to my editor, and got three quarters of the way through the next before calling it and hitting the hay. Today my focus has dwindled. Honestly, I don't know what I'm thinking about, but erotica is really not it.
I have made some mild changes to my second story, but each I've hmmmed and huhhhhed about until I've almost cancelled them. I've only been able to work it a few moments before my mind wanders yet again.
I read an article on procrastination...but honestly it was ridiculous - I couldn't figure out if he was trying to make a joke or what. He spoke about how you needed to sit down and have all your pencils sharpened have a clean desktop, have the curtains opened to let in the light, or closed to keep your focus, and have several snacks throughout the writing process.
It didn't help. Nothing truly has helped. I've read, I've written, I've attempted to think about covers... Honestly I just want to lay and zone. So maybe today that's what I will do.
