Too Many Distractions...


Hello again. I've been trying to get down to some writing today. Well at least, sketching some ideas for bits of stories. I have two or three possibilities to think about, and you'd think it would be easy to get myself to do something so creative.

Instead, I am still finding a million other jobs to do, admitted, most of them are fairly legitimate, but still...

One less justifiable distraction is a reunion in a couple of weeks with school friends from 30 years ago. Remember that centenary visit to my old primary school? (see Alice in Wonderland Goes Back to School). Well, it's started a ball rolling, and it's very tempting to spend ages on Facebook and Friends Reunited, rooting people out.

I only have up to next Tuesday before my school visits start kicking in, so I've got to get my head together soon, and get down to what I should be doing. So, I have resolved to turn off the computer this afternoon, take my sketch book and pencil off into another room, and try again to concentrate.

Wish me luck!

Thank you! Yes, it worked pretty well and I did from 2.00 to 5.30 without a significant break, so that made up a bit for the bad behaviour of the morning.
