I honestly cannot believe I only have this post and the one for tomorrow, and then the 12 Days of Christmas series is over. I should be flying high! My creative juices should be spilling over! I should be spinning plates on my fingers, toes and nose simultaneously. The closest I’ve gotten to that tonight is when I burped and hiccuped at the same time.
Instead, I’m left with nothing.
This is how tonight has gone:
6:45 PM: *cracks knuckles* I’m gonna own this motherlover.
7:00 PM: I’m hungry. Snack, snack, snack, snack, snack, snack, snack!
8:00 PM: Taking a nap at 8 PM is totally appropriate, right? That won’t screw with my internal clock at all.
9:00 PM: Fuck, what day is it? How long have I been sleeping? I’m going through some serious Rip Van Winkle issues right now.
9:10 PM: Why is the underside of my left boob so sweaty?
9:25 PM: Is that a spider in the corner? Looks poisonous. Great, I’m going to get bitten and die and not in the cool apocalypse way everyone else will on Friday.
9:30 PM: I JUST MET YOU AND THIS IS CRAZY BUT HERE’S MY NUMBER CALL ME MAYBE.
9:45 PM: Come on, get your head in the game. Post ideas, post ideas. I’m sure they won’t care if I write about how I found an M&M in my bra last night, but haven’t eaten an M&M since Halloween.
10:00 PM: What’s that tapping at my window? Could just be the wind, but it’s most likely a serial killer playing mind games with me.
10:30 PM: WHOA. “The Golden Girls” is on the Hallmark Channel right now. I must watch this episode I’ve seen a bajillion times, and laugh like the crazy spinster I am.
11:00 PM: I’m screwed.
Today’s challenge will be to tell me if this happens to any of you. What things do you do to put off writing, and how do you get yourself back on track?
