Wednesday Fun

Okay, so this won't apply to everyone but I thought it was funny nonetheless. Sit back and enjoy. Oh and if you're not a baby boomer just yet then watch what you have to look forward too. :)

This is one of Walt Handelsman's cartoons. I tried to put the video on the site but it wouldn't let me, so click the link, watch it and then come back to comment. :)

Baby Boomers

Since I'm on major deadline to finish the first draft of my book by December 6th, the posts will be shorter than normal. When I get home from the day job I'm on the computer writing the word count needed to complete the book. I don't open the Internet at all until I've made that word count happen. Talk about control...not so much. It's killing me. I love to spend time on the blogs and so forth. Which is the reason I'm in deadline now. I had too many nights of playing instead of writing.

Looking back at all the nights I put a zero for my daily word count I now realize I would have been done weeks ago. Oh well, such is life and playing in the blog world. :)

So, do blogs, email, and general browsing the net stop you from making your deadlines? What do you do to avoid it?

WW's and PD's,

Good luck with your deadline, Vicki!

I always use Kelly's advice for deadlines. Wake up and do thsoe fifteen minutes, before you blog, before you look at your email, before you do anything. I swear it works!

Sorry I'm missing the partay!

I'm sorry you're missing the party too! It's always great to have you with us.

You're right, Kelly's advice is great. I've used it several times. I do find for me it works better in the evenings then in the morning though. :)

Congratulations on being in the homestretch! You'll make it.

Yes, blogging takes up a ridiculous amount of my time but I've connected with so many great people and I learn so much from the writers' blogs, that it is time well spent. I need to try the Kelly method though.
