When I sat down to write this blog post, I thought I’d take a quick sec to check my Twitter feed and then I searched for something I meant to follow up on about six months ago, and now twenty minutes later here I am.
This is why, when I work on my books, I can’t be on a computer when I’m trying to be creative. I end up going down way too many rabbit holes!
Speaking of writing…
Yesterday my day involved a lot of waiting in areas that either didn’t have a spot for me to get comfortable with my computer, didn’t have a spot for me to plug in my old laptop (which has such a poor battery it doesn’t really count as a battery), or didn’t have wifi. So, I got a bit of client writing done at Starbucks where conditions were right for working, and a lot of hand scrawled figuring done for Ancient Fall everywhere else. That counts as productivity.
I grabbed lunch at Wendy’s because I was craving the Apple Pecan salad. I love that thing. Have you tried it? (BTW: their wifi connection can’t be trusted, according to my Mac)
I spent the early part of the evening working on a client’s book, while my brain was still able to pull together sentences, and then I quit to make dinner. I had a bunch of fresh basil so I made pesto, and the pesto was crying for noodles and tomatoes, so I trusted the pesto and made pasta for dinner. It was delicious.
My Shelby required some extra snuggling yesterday evening, because she seems to not be feeling 100%. Then after she went to bed, I hung out with my Casey for awhile, while she played her guitar. She lets me sing along because 1. I can’t help it when she plays Beatles songs, and 2. I think it helps her with her timing.
But, fair warning. If you’re going to play Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da on a guitar, I’ll be singing along.
I was in bed before 10pm. Then I had a very elaborate nightmare.
Do you know Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da? Have a listen. It’s a great song!
While The Beatles sing to me on Spotify, I’m going to finish my coffee, sign off from here, and get this day started! I have two big projects to work on today and I’m feeling productive.
What’s going on in your world today?
