When I want to be focused…
Everything seems to be a distraction. This entire blog post is one big distraction. The layout for the promo on Agents of SHIELD for tonight’s episode was a distraction. The dishes I washed by hand, also a distraction. Even the three episodes of General Hospital that I’ve been able to get watched, has been a distraction. What am I so distracted from. The 2000 words that I’m trying to get written today for the first day of NANO. That is right, I’m attempting the NaNoWriMo challenge again this year.
I sat down to start the first scene that I’ve thought out so thoroughly that I don’t know why I’m not writing it. It’s been plotted that It should be cake, but yet, I’m sitting here and am allowing myself to be so distracted that I can’t get anything. I’m only at 337 of a wanted 2000. I just don’t know why I won’t allow myself to get this done. I’m so bad for distracting myself. I need a writing program that can block everything out. I know they have them, maybe I should search for one tomorrow after I hit Wednesday’s 2000 words.
Basically, I’m rambling because while I want to do one thing, my mind won’t allow me, so it drifts to a thousand other things. That and every time I seem to get the sentences stringing together, a boy runs out in tears, or something. Because they aren’t listening to me tonight. Like always. (That is a whole other blog post.)
I’m bouncing between this and my new story. Because this NANO piece is an entirely new story. I need to finish all my other drafts, but I wanted to do a new piece for this NANO attempt. I’ve officially finished the prologue for the story. But now I need another 1500 words for the daily word count. I mean I really don’t, but I want to have that done so that I can be ahead of schedule. I only need 1666 words for today, to be on schedule. But of course, I want to be ahead of that.
And that is all I have for this distraction. Thanks for hanging out with my random rambles.
……That is all.
