Easily Distracted

A 6-post collection

Not Getting the Hang of Thursdays

So the recycling collectors were hellishly early today. Causing me to have to do an urgent bin-run twice because I couldn't recall which week was recycling week.

My knees hate me now BTW.

I am more distracted than a kitten in a discotheque, this morrow and things are going S-L-O-W-L-Y as a direct result. With Mayhem sick at home with yet another Lurgi, it's looking like a lovely day to just... give up on doing anything productive.

But I'm not going to disappoint you like that. Story as soon as I can get my brain into gear.

[THIS POST IS ALMOST A WEEK LATE AND AN ACTIVE DEMONSTRATION OF HOW EXACTLY THURSDAYS DON'T WORK FOR ME. REAL BLOG ENTRY SOON]

F-O-C-U-S

Today's my last day for writing Beauties and the Beastly so of course I'm procrastinating harder than ever. With all good luck, Beloved and I will be editing Adapting and then I'll be sending out Beauties to my lovely beta readers.

All of whom, I sincerely hope, will get back to me promptly about the contents of said novel. Instead of taking most of this novel's writing to do so.

Yes, I am still salty about that.
