most efficient time waster EVER!
or so it would seem. my daughter is at her dad's house this week and I had big plans for getting things done but so far I haven't been so lucky. not so much with my writing. I'm at 11k words with my WIP so that is good. but the other things on my list haven't been as lucky. yes, I even made a list. the problem is that I am easily distracted. I see something else I'd rather do and I do it. I can't stay focused. I've had this problem a long time. it's one of the reasons I never studied in the library at UF. there was too much other stuff to do. just the periodical floor was enough to do me in. now Library West, the main library, at UF has a Starbucks in it so I'd waste even more time if I was still a student there.and the art and architecture library was just as big of an attractive nuisance. I'd walk around and read all the interesting books that had nothing to do with what I was there to research. it got so bad that I had to have someone come with me to the library to keep me on task. maybe I need someone like that for my list of things to do.or maybe I just need someone to do the things on my list. that would be better. then I could do more writing! I 'll put it on my list.
