It's Gone -- So Why Can't I Get Going?
Yesterday I completed proofing my manuscript, tweaked the proposal, and typed a cover email letter. Then I hit "send" and the package whooshed off into cyberspace to the agent's in-box.
A weight has been lifted. And I'm free! Free to do other things that have been on hold like finish organizing my storage, work on ACFW projects, and write an article that's been requested.
Why is it so hard to get going?
I just sat down here to write the article which has already been outlined, yet I found myself going to the Internet to nose around, and then I decided to post to my blog.
It's a perfect day to write. Only five degrees outside and I'm here toasty warm, still in my jammies, cup of coffee by my side. Maybe I should take a day's break and just chill. Figuratively. It's too cold out to want to really chill. LOL. But there's so much that needs being done.
It's going to be a while before I hear anything about my manuscript so I need to start working on the next story. And just the other day someone pointed me to a newspaper article I'd enjoy. That sparked excitement in me when I realized what a great storyline I could develop from what I read. Then there's all the article ideas I came up with a couple weeks ago.
I'd better say have a nice weekend and close this post. I've got some serious writing to do
