Life Interrupts

Well, you know, I HAD the good intentions to work this week. Really, I did. However, life has interrupted. Kids are home from school...family obligations...not to mention getting ready for Christmas day (and dinner) around here. So, I've given myself permission to take the week off and work only if I have time and am so motivated. How about YOU? Are you working, or has life interrupted with your plans as well?

robin- I'll probably keep working on my writing right up until it's time to start my Christmas shopping in a couple of days.
What can I say? I'm a guy. lol

Well, I did complete a paid crit yesterday, so that's progress, right? LOL Am hoping to at least get some more of my crits (for buddies) out of the way today as time alows. However, the grocery store beckons! UGH

Life always interrupts, doesn't it? LOL I'm plodding on. Won't get as much done as I'd like, but that's okay.

And Robin--you're doing the right thing by taking the week off and taking care of family.

Love you girl!!

I took the whole month of December off for that very reason. Didn't want to be beating myself up everyday for what I didn't get done. Now, if I get any writing done, great! Of course, I'm in between WIPs. :)

I'm still working on my edits. The laundry has piled up and I'm doing dishes in the morning. I need to be sent to the corner!

I am taking the day off today though. I have not done any Christmas shopping. Again, I need to be sent to the corner!

I worked Monday, does that count?

I'm self-employed so I can waffle on the issue and get away with it. I should be working right now, but...

I am giving myself all next week off from work, so that I have time to write, rewrite that is!

Well, I don't have a job outside of writing and the home, so I don't even have that excuse. I just finished catching up on my crit partners' crits, so that's one item marked off. Uh, anybody want to come clean my house for me?
