Why is it, when you want to focus on one project, another starts to jab at you? I'm trying to make sure I'm as ready for NaNoWriMo as I can be (working on scene cards and jotting down basic ideas for stuff I want to see happen) when WHAM!!! I figured out how to fix "Return to Stiller Creek". It's a MAJOR change, and will require a complete rewrite of the entire story, and it won't get out of my head.
I have less than two weeks until NaNo. I even officially signed up for this year. I want to work on "Drive Me Crazy", dang it. So, Stiller Creek -- get thee behind me!!!
We won't talk about how much I've also been thinking about my fantasy. I love my fantasy. It's so freaking hard to write, but I think it's one of my best stories (she said modestly).
FOCUS, where are you?
DD is going through some funky phaze. She's totally unable to focus (maybe there's something in my house? A non-focus virus?) and won't sit still. She started school yesterday, sat for about 45 mins then popped up. "I'm antsy, I'm going to take the dog out to play."
Uh, no. It doesn't work that way. Sit down and do math.
And, oddly enough, she's too busy with school to do her chores, but has plenty of time to read or jump rope.
So, yesterday, she lost .... everything. No TV, no books, no dog, no outside until ALL her school and chores are done. Amazingly, school was finished in record time, and the dishwasher was emptied without me having to ask more than once. Incredible.
We'll see how today goes.
You Are Dumplings
You are cute, polite, and considerate. You are well known for your generosity, and you truly love to share.
You have a real style and presence about you. You know how to take the simplest thing and make it look chic.
You tend to order carefully and conservatively off the menu of life. Simplicity is your motto, and you don't like to take on too much at once.
You are the type of person who does one thing at a time, really immersing yourself in the moment. You detest multitasking.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA..... This couldn't be MORE wrong! *snort*
