So. I am currently experiencing a writer's block. I've had intentions of starting my third book. I know the plot, the main character's name, and the working title. And so far I've written Chapter One. That's it. Just the words "Chapter One." I think I'm too easily distracted by the internet. Well I know I am actually. For instance, do you know Pantone's color of the year? I didn't until it popped up on my MSN page. It's greenery by the way in case you were interested. What does that mean anyway? Also, I was fascinated (insert a sarcasm emoji here) to learn that many other actors were excited to see Brad Pitt at the Golden Globes. I really don't know why but it was on my news page. And the fact that they've arrested some suspects in the Kim Kardashian robbery. Now I can sleep better at night just knowing that. And reading all the 3,250,000 blogs that I look at during the week.
And then there's Facebook. Oh, good ol' political/religious ranting people on Facebook. Most of the time I just scroll past the rants and raves. But then I get sucked up into the craziness and spend WAY too much time debating with myself who is right and who is wrong. Ugh. Such a waste of time and yet there I am. Then I make the mistake of really looking around my house and decide there's too much dust under the sofas. And come on - if I don't get that dust right now - I'm not going to be able to concentrate. So on and on it goes. Here's hoping that nothing "interesting" happens in the world in the next few months so maybe I can actually get the first paragraph written anyway. It may be 2019 before this book gets written. Oh wait, is that a dust bunny that just rolled by?
Bio - I am a Maryland girl born and raised. I've been married for 40 years (wow) to Joe and have two children, Greg and Kaitlyn, and three grandsons. I didn't start writing until 2014. We also have a house in southern North Carolina and will be retiring there . I hope to live out my life relaxing in my back yard, drinking wine and observing how badly people are at golf.
