OMyGoodness! It’s been a day with no internet access…no blogging… no CONNECTION!
I was able to tweet a little bit this morning on St.Paddy’s Day, but a very little bit. Which leads me to this subject:
Should I have tweeted, written a blogpost, or worked on my wip?
Thought about this post.
Read and pondered my wip.
And cleaned my house, ran around the neighborhood, took pictures for tomorrow’s post, and generally enjoyed the beautiful spring day we had today.
Now I’m feeling guilty.
Reading and pondering does count for a tiny little bit if it moves you forward or untangles a plot problem.
But, with yesterday as our regular Crit Day with Lindy Chaffin Start and Pam Asberry, I wimped out.
And I am kicking myself about that. Except, I think, right now, my wip … stinks.
Could be I am too close to it. Could be it really is stupid. Could be it’s so original, melodramatic, and soapoperatic that it really is okay, and I just need to keep hammering on that square peg.
Keli Gwyn’s blog deals with this in her blog today:http://keligwyn.wordpress.com/2011/03/14/overcoming-self-defeating-thoughts/ Which I should print out myself and tack to my screen.
