One word definitely stands out this week: "Finally!"
Finally, I got all caught up on one of my email accounts (which had over 9600 emails).
Finally, I finished step 2 of the editing process for a manuscript (it took me 9 days!)
Finally, I sent a query off for a manuscript.
Finally, I heard back from a publisher on a manuscript submitted.
Finally, I posted something on my dA account.
Notice how most of that stuff is writing-related? Yeah, I'm picking up on that, too. Kinda frustrating. I only wish I could say "finally!" with some OTHER stuff I gotta get done. Non-writing stuff. Stuff like:
--Cleaning out the closets.
--Emailing my wedding pictures to family members.
--Getting a BIG toy box for all of Jennifer's stuffed animals overcrowding her closet.
--Giving my dog a bath. (He's needed one for 3 weeks!)
--Mailing my nephew a laaaate birthday present.
A few of those items are things I have been trying to get done for WEEKS.
Sometimes, when I think to do them, I also think, "Well, it's not a good time. Jennifer will interrupt me with something or another. My neighbor will show up at the door asking a favor. A fire might start." Etc., etc. But something tells me I should adopt the same kind of attitude I have when it comes to writing something: "JUST DO IT!!" Forget about the "what ifs" and "maybes" and just get it done the minute I am free.
Or, at least, start to get it done. Until it finally IS done.
