Somebody block the internet from my computer, please!

I have very little time to devote to writing.

Let’s face it, with two really young children I often have to decide whether today is going to be take-a-shower day or load-the-dishwasher day, both being an inconceivable burden.

So what little time I do have, mostly in the late evenings or during a miraculous double naptime, I must use judiciously.

For two days, thoough, I have told myself that my next chunck of time would be reserved for drafting a short story idea that I need to purge before I can push forward with my NaNoWriMo idea (yea for ideas that won’t leave me alone… at least something is percolating other than coffee!).

For two days, my best intentions have fizzled as I dithered around with e-mail, NaNoWriMo forums, and obsessive compulsive blogging (mostly indulging the voyeuristic instinct that thrives on reading other people’s blogs).

Time to exercise some self-control, and probably set a goal.

Before this weekend, I intend to forsake the internet and have a draft of this little story.

Off I go then, just after I check the convention coverage on NPR…

  1. it is hard to get time for certain tasks. no internet when mine we little… now, was that a good or bad thing? :)))have a happy writing weekend! gotta love it when the ideas are there…

  2. It is so hard to sit down and be creative when it seems like everything in the world that has to get done must be done by you. It is so very easy to ease into the cyber world for a little relaxation. I currenlty have three stories in the works but am I writing? No, I think this is called blogging.

    Good luck.
