One of those mornings….

It’s one of those mornings where I finally have the time and the peace to write but my mind is everywhere but where it should be.

I even have my tea and writing assistant close at hand, yet I still can seem to find my focus. I have some other stuff I have to do later today and I think that part of my distraction comes from worrying over my time limit and getting those things accomplished.

I guess I will just have to force myself to start writing and hope the focus comes.  As long as I get something down it is better than the alternative.  It doesn’t have to be good.  It just has to be written.

Focus

Focus or the lack there of can kill your book before you’re even finished.  The lure of other ideas can be tempting but if you let yourself be distracted you may never finish what you are currently working on. That amazing brain child will end up still born, never realizing its promise.

As a writer you will have other ideas. It’s a given. That is why a good portion of us write; to rid our brains of the clutter that accumulates. Write down your ideas. Keep a notebook. Just don’t let the idea of something new and shiny lead you away from your current project.
