To Do Lists

Sometimes in order to be creative, I have to be practical. Today is one of those days. I can go for weeks (sometimes months) doing the minimum amount of housework. In fact, if the result of sitting on my rear end in front of the computer all day wasn’t directly related to how tight my jeans fit, I wouldn’t even exercise. But alas, there is a world beyond my blog, my novel, my Facebook and my twitter page—and after months of being ignored, I have to acknowledge it. In fact, I can no longer summon up even an ounce of creativity, until I finish painting the bathroom. Then it’s on to finishing the decorating in the guest room (which means shopping—ugh!) and (sigh) cleaning the house.

Hummm, maybe the reason I can’t write is because I can’t see through all the dust?

—Hence, the brevity of this post!

What keeps you from being creative? Let me know. I’ll be back Thursday, clean, mean, and ready to go!

P.S. By the way, Tina, the winner of the First ever Give A Little Love contest, has already had some additional good luck. She just got offered a contract to write six more books! Woo Who Tina—pass it on!

    Ha ha ha…I believe you hit it on the head, when there is so many other things that clutter your mind it is very hard to be creative especially when you are looking at all the things around you which need to get accomplished. That is my same downfall. If I sit to try to read a book then glance around the room and I see what all needs to be done then I can’t seem to focus on my reading.
    When I get out of the house, get into my truck and drive then I am flooded with ideas of all sorts. I always tell myself I am going to take my computer, find a quiet place to be outside of my home so I can accomplish what I “really” want to get done and actually do it. I have yet to follow through with that idea.
    Your little “do list” cracked me up… love your blogs..B.

    Thanks! I ran around all day, but managed to get everything accomplished. What I find is having a space to call my own helps me focus on my writing. Take your truck and go park near a forest preserve and write! Whatever works 🙂
