Hear ye, hear ye! It’s…Friday!
Well, I hate to say this, but the evil butterflies are back. I’ve been swarmed!
Blast those distracting, Look at me! Look at me! butterflies! I can’t get away from them. No matter how determined I start each day, and no matter how firmly I tell myself, “You will work on your manuscript now–you will!”, I lose my focus immediately and turn to something else that’s not my book. And when I do manage to sit down and write, my brain refuses to cooperate. It says, “Oh, look! This sentence stinks. Let’s fix it for two hours.”
On a positive note, I did squeak out one full chapter. It’s not great, and it needs a lot of editing, but it’s something. And something is better than nothing, right?…Right? Well, I’m hoping by this weekend I’ll get my booty whipped into shape and–
No, wait. I forgot. It’s Labor Day Weekend, and I’m going out of town.
Fine, fine. I’ll admit, I’m more excited than frustrated about this upcoming weekend with all of its distractions. I’ve been looking forward to it for months. My mom, sister, and I are driving up to “a little place called Assspen“.
We’re leaving on Sunday to go watch Carrie Underwood perform at the JAS Aspen Snowmass Experience. It should be blast, especially since I get to spend quality time with my mom and sister. With life being as crazy as it is, and my sister having three little boys (all under the age of 4), the three of us rarely get to hang out together. I can’t wait to just relax and enjoy a day in the mountains with them.
And who knows? Maybe this small excursion is just what the creative doctor ordered? Maybe I’ll get back to town on Monday refreshed and ready to roll my sleeves up and get to work?
Okay, I have to. I won’t have a choice. I need to pull it together already!
With that said, it’s time for me to stop blabbing and get to writing! So, here you go. In honor of my butterfly-filled writing week, I present to you today’s Friday Funny. Enjoy!
How about you? How’s your writing coming along? Have any fun plans for the weekend?
