Another Week, What Will I Accomplish This Week?

I love my writing, but sometimes I procrastinate and don’t get as much accomplished as I need to. What stops me? First is playing on the internet. Do you remember the times when we did not have Twitter or Facebook? I do, but we also did not have Google and Wikipedia.

Do you remember before we had ebooks or online banking? I do, but back then we had to resort to buying books and balancing checkbooks. And by balancing checkbooks, I mean those paper registers we had to make sure that we listed everything down and checked off, from paper statements, that things had posted to the account.

Perhaps I am dating myself here, but I am also stating my appreciation of our current technical abilities to make our lives easier. For several years now I have been talking to my friends, aka my characters, via typing on my computer. Their feelings and lives flow out through my fingers. Add to this that word documents also spell check and offer recommendations for grammar. The only time this is a little, and I do mean a very little, aggravating is when the character talks funny.

So, to get back to what will I accomplish this week, I am ready to finish the latest scene for “Misty’s Magical Shed”. I need to get this book written, so I can start working on the edit. The edit is what I have going with “Not Too Late Forever”. Life is very good. I am living the dream, but let’s see how we can make it better.

Keep the coffee flowing.

Respectfully submitted,

Jodi
