Me, Myself and I

Get your butt on that chair and finish your revising. You’re on a deadline girl!

Yeah, I know. But there’s a beautiful sun out there. I could totally be doing something else. That doesn’t even include laundry.

No. You can’t. You have two weeks to finish revising and send that thing out!

Yeah, whatever. Do you think I should buy that rub on tan this year, because of my white-as-a-ghost tan?

Well, you are pretty pasty. Have you thought of that great spray…HEY! Wait a minute. You almost had me distracted! Now get to work. You will be so much happier when that ms is finished.

Yeah, you’re probably right.

And just think…then you can query.

Query? Aren’t those the cute little birds running around the neighborhood?

No, those are quails. *rolling eyes, arms folded* What…what are you doing?

I’m looking for a camera so I can take pictures of those quails.

You need to focus.

I am focusing. I’m focusing right now on that quail running down the street. I’m totally going to miss that photo op.

*foot tapping, scary grumpy look*

Okay, okay. I’m sitting down and working on revising. *sish*

Good.

Are you happy now?

Actually. Yeah, yeah I think I am.

I’ll be unplugging next week (starting Monday) so I can finish my revisions before my kids summer break. Have a good week everyone! And may the force be with you.

Oh, I love unplugging! I'm semi-unplugged today after a week of mostly unplugging to get some word count covered. And it worked! TOTAL momentum. Good luck!!

Focusing. It's the hardest part. Oh. Another blog to read.

Have a great week unplugging and best of luck! (I have similar conversations with myself often.)

How I wish I had someone to talk me back into my chair and get my fingers moving on the keyboard again! I have a million less-interesting things than quails that distract me.
