My Best Day

I intend to write today. I’ve been wanting to devote a great deal of time to the manuscript lately and have yet to do it. A few minutes at the top of the day and a few more at the bottom is about as good as it’s gotten lately.
Stuff gets in the way. I’ve gone for bike rides, taken the time to meditate, shop for and later prepare food, work in the garden.
All good, all necessary, and all excuses for not devoting the proper time to the manuscript.
I also check in on my blog more than I need to, and have to go check the blogs I visit because the bulk of my social life is online. I’ve found a few more blogs to check now, too, and that eats into the day.
I’m not complaining. I’m happy about it, but the day slides by and I’ve accomplished little.
Today I’m hoping to reverse course and get some work done.
It’s Tuesday and it’s supposed to be my best day. Years ago a psychic said so. I’ve think of it every Tuesday. Many of them are really good.
Now that I’ve said so in cyber print it’ll be interesting to see if it holds up.
I’m going to write today.
I’m going to write right now.

Good Tuesday to you! Hope you get lots of writing done.
I can certainly relate to the "not getting anything done" syndrome - happens a lot around here!

The days just slip by, don't they dfBag Lady?
So far, I've kept my word. After I wrote the post this morning I actually opened up a file and started working. I am on a break now.

Happy Tuesday! Hope a lot gets done. For whatever reason, Sunday is my best day to accomplish tasks.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Missicat. I'm working on it.

Reb said...

I know all about not getting things done. Good luck with today!

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Reb

Oh yes, how the days slip away, far too quickly! I wish they'd slow down.

I relate -- I am a night writer, but if I'm not careful, I can fill the day with so much activity that the writing gets pushed later and later, and I don't want to make a habit of that.

Happy Tuesday! :) I hope you get a lot of writing done. I love days where the writing flows like a waterfall, don't you?

Leah J. Utas said...

Hello Thomma Lynn - I'm a night writer when my husband is away.

Waterfall writing days are the best.

Wishing you many full pages!

Leah J. Utas said...

What a wonderful wish. Thank you, Hilary.

"Not getting anything done" seems to be my life. Yet I feel quite busy all day long. Quite a mystery.

Good luck with your writing.

Leah J. Utas said...

Ah, the mystery of the used-up time.
Can't imagine where it goes.
Thanks for the writing wish.
