Pick Your Vice
Every night I sit at my desk and try to make myself write. But I find ten thousand other things to do. From answering emails about our chapter contest to promoting the luncheon to playing Pop-It. Most of today, I knew I needed to write this blog, but found myself downloading pictures off my camera, chasing wasps, looking for something to eat, and contemplating cleaning my desk. It’s a mess. See. If I had widened the frame a little you would have seen a stack of books to one side. Part of my to-read-pile.
I have a love-hate relationship with writing. I love to read the finished product, but hate how slow I write, how I doubt every word I place on paper, and how my vocabulary fails me most times. When I play Spider Solitaire or Pop-It, I can forget all my worries and mindlessly click on cards or balloons in a game induced daze.
My questions are, what do you like to do to waste time (besides answering this blog)? And more important, how do you organize your desk?
