Otherwise entitled: Procrastination.
Exercise. I know. I can’t help it. I get up really, really (I know, two adverbs) early (ok, three) in the morning to do this.
Make bed. I didn’t do this the first day and it didn’t get made for two days. I know, not necessary, but just a little something Martha Stewart taught me.
Clean up breakfast dishes. Something about the hum of the dishwasher creates a nice background noise for noveling.
Procure four-year-old playmate for Jane. The moms in the neighborhood are loving me because I’m begging them to bring their kids over. If they don’t, Jane ends up watching TV all day. Not good.
Stock desk with glass of ice water or, if I’m cold, hot herbal tea (I like the peach with sugar and milk).
Also, does anyone know how many calories the little bite-size Halloween candy bars are? Just wondering, cause I may have eaten twenty yesterday. I consider chocolate collateral damage during November.
So. What do you do to prepare for your writing day?
