I’m sitting here with a pile of papers on both sides of me and my Macbook.  Yup.  The papers are printouts of writings I’m trying to edit and eventually put into a book.  This is so hard for me.  I can see in my head how I want it to look but the carrying out of this project is difficult for me.

During my career in elementary school through high school I found this part of reports and such the most difficult.  I just want it to be done.  I did not establish good research techniques back then and it is so hard now.  I was handed a set of encyclopedias (google that word if you do not know what they are) and a library card and left totally on my own to figure things out.  Sigh.  That was pretty much my childhood in a nutshell.  The results of such an upbringing?  I have incredible insight and abilities to figure things out on my own.  Which, by the way, only leads to more independency.  I have within me the ability to achieve really good grades but was average because of the lack of drive……

img080  Lunch sounds good right about now.  Oh look.  The sun just came out.  Maybe I’ll…… wait.

I need to get this going!  It’s not even Writer’s Block – I have it written.  I just need to put  things together.  Add and subtract words and thoughts…….IMG_2880 pie sounds good too today.








Wait!  I saw this refrigerator:


Isn’t it great?  I may need this….

after I complete this book!

As a creative person I tend to have a hard time focusing on a project.  Heck, I have a hard time typing this sentence because of a miss-spell in the previous sentence.  I must go on and use spell check and not stop every two words to correct on the spot.  FOCUS!

I love to write but have been slacking because I also love to crochet.  I have the opportunity to sell my articles that I crochet and some are now on display in a dear friends boutique.  I can make money.  I can bake pies and sell them.  I started a painting about a month ago and there it sits while I try to decide which of the two rooms I prefer painting in.  Good grief.

I assume this is normal among the creative masses…… it?  I hope so.  Distractions are everywhere.  I feel like I am surrounded by them. That’s when I can easily say, “Forget it.  I’ll just go read a book or watch a movie.”

So in today’s blog I want …………… Oh, I’m going to have another cup of coffee.

OK.  Road trip is now behind me.  It was awesome and our dear dog, Hayley Mills Sasquatch Bryson had a fabulous time and was extremely well behaved for a 10 month old dog.  Fall colours on the eastern part of US were incredible and the Atlantic Ocean is still there even though I am not.

That said, let’s move on.  About that book I’m writing ….. ug.  The thing is, I KNOW I can do it.  I have NO doubts that I can do it.  I do it in my head A LOT.  But boy howdy, it is hard!  Focusing is very hard for me some days.  At this point I would like to upload a short video taken on my NEW iphone4 (bragging, yes) of me hard at work on this book : if I could figure out how ……. more distractions.  Can’t even focus on this blog. Sigh.  But the African Rooibus tea I just made is fantastic!!


So, that said, well, have a great day.
