So the last few days I've had two freelance jobs, a fanfic beta, plus the regular day job. I'm getting NO writing done, which irks me no end. I'm the database droid for my online workshop this month so technically I don't owe any crits, but I desperately wanted to get started on at least one story. I have ideas! I really do, honest!! I just can't seem to find time to sit down and hack it out. If I don't have an externally imposed deadline I just slither from one excuse to the next: I have to work on this freelance job. I have to make dinner. It's too nice out. I'm too tired. I gotta prune the rosebushes. I'll have lots of time tomorrow. I wanna finish my book. I'm behind on my British comedy. I wanna go out to dinner. Oh look, someone sent me a funny video! Oh look, someone sent me some fanfic!!

Totally distractable, that's my problem. Good thing spouse took the initiative and got the veggie plants into their containers today, otherwise we'd be harvesting sun-dried tomatoes.

Don't worry about mine now- think the other two are coming through. So get writing!

LOL! But out of all my jobs, it's the beta-ing I enjoy the most :) Had great fun with the sneak preview of Conversational Vulcan (June) - quite a good writer. And I see July is already up; what a shame I'm at work >:|
