I'm Serious This Time

Among 8q23492837 things (yes, there's a "q" in that number -- that's just how crazy-big it is), I am also working on focusing my thoughts these days. My mind tends to wander easily. Who am I kidding? It tends to sprint in a thousand different directions. You can imagine that this makes it difficult for me to accomplish something...anything, really. I'm extremely skilled in the area of distraction. Not to toot my own horn, but I'm pretty flawless. I'll start meandering down the road of Project 1 and soon my mind jumps to Project 2 and I'm off on a distraction detour with a stop at the Diversion Diner for some preoccu-pie.

This is all changing today. I'm going to work on writing projects all morning. I'm serious. I have a list, a timeline, and a sleeping cat in my lap -- I'm not going anywhere. Just to prove my determination, here's a haiku (because everyone knows haiku poetry is as solid as a pinky promise).

Assiduous aim
Never veering from the goal
I mean it this time.

For real...

  1. Hahahaha. You are a wise woman Angie...the sleeping~cat~in~the~lap is one of my secret tricks for actually writing anything at length!!! In fact,my first book was finished only because my feline~writing~guru, Cicero, firmly embedded himself in my lap each morning. Whenever I'd try to get up he'd give me those soulful eyes...a prickly biscuit or two...and stubbornly refuse to budge. Guilt and cat~love kept me in my chair. I shared royalties with him for years.
