Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a great week. Mine was…distracted. Very distracted. You know, “Oh, look! A butterfly!” distracted.
Seriously, anything and everything snagged my attention and took it away from an important task I was working on (job, manuscript, blog, reading, etc.). It got to the point I literally had to turn off my internet just to get stuff done.
Thankfully, the past two days have been less foggy and more focused. I’m hoping to carry that focus into the weekend and get a solid chunk of my manuscript written. I’m starting to feel a little panicked about it. In January, I’d made a goal to have a solid rough draft written by the spring. Well, spring is just weeks away and I’ve hardly made a dent…eeks! Yeah, it’s definitely time to pull it together and work! And I’m gonna start this weekend. I’ve got nothing planned–at all–so I’m off for a long visit in Hermitville!
Today’s funny is dedicated to one of the things (silly, stupid, seriously? things) that distracted me this week. On Monday, I posted a humorous e-card on Twitter. It ended up getting 52 retweets and 43 favorites…No, that didn’t shut down Twitter like Ellen’s famous Oscar selfie, but for me it’s A LOT! Enough, at least, to take up most of my night responding to messages from people about it. Doh! Yeah, like I said, silly, stupid, and seriously? But, I guess it is pretty funny.
So, here you go. Hope it makes you chuckle too.
How was your week? Were you distracted like me? Or were you able to focus? What are your plans for the week–wait, no. Don’t tell me. As much as I wanna know, I can’t handle your “butterfly” responses. I must focus! How about you wait until Monday to tell me what you did this weekend? Yeah? Deal? Great! 😉

Entertaining! What sort of manuscript are you working on?
Thanks! I’m actually rewriting a manuscript I had optioned a few years ago. There’s still some interest in it, so I decided to keep the concept and two of the characters, and throw the rest out/start from scratch. So far, I’m loving it…Of course, that’ll likely change by tomorrow 😉
Haha, well that’s awesome! Congrats! I wish I had a manuscript… Hopefully someday. To be honest, at this point the only stories that I’ve truly even finished have been for contests. Gotta get on that!
Thanks! Manuscripts definitely take a lot of dedication (there are many hermit-filled days). But, in a way, a manuscript is really just one BIG-BIG short story 😉
