In my head that is to the tune of Rhianna’s Work. #themesong LOL!
This is what I need to be sure my crazy brain stays focused. Tonight I am writing with the fantastic Kallie Ross. She is an encourager, super inspiring, always has a plan and is getting stuff done. Even with that kind of accountability I still find it hard to stay focused. I only have to write tonight. No kiddos, no meals to make or problems to solve.
Write, write, write, write, write. That is it, GOAL #1!
And still, my brain is pulling me in every direction. I am going to be honest, it’s been 5 years since I started trying to write my WIP, Enigma. That my friends is a LONG time and a LOT of distractions. Were all of those distractions things like Netflix or social media? No, some of them were taking care of my family through huge job and life transitions. And the build up of lost opportunity and guilt is another distracting factor. Clearing my mind of all the things is a job in itself.
I WILL do it though. Close all the other windows on my laptop and in my brain. Not only for me to achieve this bucket list wish of completing my story. But as I sit next to my friend and recognize her belief in me and the time she has invested helping me. I WILL keep that theme song going. I may not sell millions of copies of this story I am trying to tell. But I will be grateful for getting it done. I will feel so blessed thinking of all the people who sat next to me at coffee shops, writing workshops and conventions. Those who watched my kiddos, made their meals and made sure they stayed alive. Those who peeked at my word count and made sure I was writing the words. So blessed they believed I could do it.
So I will continue to rock my theme song and get this thing done! Tonights WRITING UPDATE = 1000 words and a blog post!
