Some days I just don’t have it!  Focus, I mean.  Ugh, see what I mean! 

Ok, I’m going to be serious for a moment.  Focus is something that a writer needs to have in the bucketloads.  But sometime you just can’t get it, find it, buy it, beg, borrow or steal it!  Focus is simply not there.    As a semi-pro non-focused sometimes person, I understand!  My best advice is to try and just pick up whatever piece you’re working on and read it.  If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work.  Move on to something else.  If that doesn’t work, keep trying a few more things. 

When and if that fails, take a break and take a walk or just get out of the house and try to clear you mind.  Walking works for me.   I have also found that when I’m really stuck, if I just get away from the project completely and do something totally unrelated, when I come back, my focus has returned!  Maybe she just needed a break too!  In other words, try different things and use whatever works for you!

Shopping Early

December 20, 2010 at 3:36 pm (Uncategorized)

Today I shopped at Walmart for the first time ever early in the morning.  I was done with my Christmas and grocery shopping b4 8:00 am.  Wow!  It felt really strange and cool to be walking around at a leisurely pace and picking out what I wanted.  Only saw about 10 shoppers in the whole store!  What fun!  I might make this a habit!
