Did I take my morning medication? Maybe I should stop writing and go to the grocery store I wonder what the temp is outside Is it still raining? Maybe I should go look.
No! I tell myself. Stay in your chair. Keep writing. You only have 1,200 more words to go. I sigh and continue writing.
We should really cut the grass at the trailer today and rake the leaves. Maybe I should call Steve if he wants to go. I wonder what laundry needs to be done. Did the mail come yet? Maybe I should go look
Keep writing. Keep going. You only have 700 more words to write. Ok. Ok. I’ll continue.
Did I pay the Citi Card bill? I’m hungry. Maybe I should make something to eat. I wonder how my brother’s MRI went. I wonder if my mom is home. Maybe I should call her. I’m sick of overtime. Maybe I should take a day a vacation this week to write.
Finally I’m done. 1,700 words. It’s about time. I didn’t think I could do it today.
I’m exhausted. It’s hard to write and talk yourself into staying in your chair. Sometimes I feel like a five year old in kindergarten who only likes recess.
