Tuesday Ten?

Let's see if I can come up with ten things about Tuesday.

1. I worked in my office for about 5 hours today. By that I mean in my actual chair, in my actual office, plugged into the nice keyboard and monitor. For FIVE hours. This is huge.

2. #1 felt really, really good.

3. I wonder how long it will take to make #1 a habit?

4. I also wonder why it is that I put things off for so long, things that feel like they are going to be so hard and then, well, I do them and it is okay.

5. Based on #4 I might be adjusting to Firefox more quickly than I thought and I haven't even checked out the add-ins yet.

6. Right now I am more than a little in love with the spellcheck that shows up everywhere without me having to click things.

7. I think I am equally in love with the fact that I can add tags to bookmarks.

8. I bought something for Plant Kid on Ebay today. I didn't plan to but I saw it and I could picture it in his room and I bought it.

9. And now I wonder what Plant Kid would put in the box.

10. I also wonder if Flyboy is going to get jealous that I didn't buy him something.

Five hours is most definitely huge. Congratulations, Susan. Keep on working hard and that habit will be yours!

Man do I envy you. I'm so in need of a few connected, uninterrupted hours to write. Haven't had that for over two weeks now.

Love that someone was productive . . . and for 5 hours! Very impressive.

I may be in there but it hasn't been uninterrupted. Cassie gives me about 20 minutes at a time, except on Tuesdays and Thursdays when the dog walker takes her on a longer walk.

But I managed to be somewhat productive which was good. :)

Hope you get your time soon.

I think everyone does this, I know I do!

Yeah, sooo frustrating.

Wow, five hours! Excellent. :)

And I know what you mean about #4--it's the putting off that's harder than the doing sometimes!

I don't know what I do that. I did it with homework all the time. I do it with articles. EVERYTHING. Sigh.

Yay for the new office. For some of us (hand-waving here) new is just harder. Baby steps are a good way to go. Giant steps are not absolutely necessary. :)

Yeah, I managed about 15 hours in there this week. Was on the couch all day today due to sinus headache.

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
