Mucking Through The Muddy Middle

Somewhere, deep down inside me, in my heart of hearts, I want to write. I really, really do. And yet I sit here bloghopping and web surfing like I have a year and half to write 157 pages instead of five weeks.

I really want to go watch Finding Neverland. It's been waiting for me on Tivo for about two weeks now. Or maybe I'll read the new book I bought today (because three shelves of TBR wasn't enough.)

Sigh. Or maybe I'll try to eek out a few more pages.

    I feel your pain. Been there before and am sure to be there again. You'll get your 157 pages done and it will be fabulous :)

  2. Hi Kristen,

    Thanks for visiting my blog and offering some encouragement. I really appreciate your well wishes. And I love your blog--I lurk and read it every day!

  3. **Jax rolls up her sleeve and gets ready to give Kristen a good kick in the pants.

    You can do it! Remember all the times you nagged at me and forced me to write? Well, take your own advice, turn off the Tivo (the devils device) and pop a bon-bon then go sick 'em!

  4. Blogging is addictive, isn't it?

    I hope you defeat the procrastination goober and kick his tuckas out the window.

    I would love to read something by you....especially something I knew you wrote whilst I blogged to you. kind of like an 'insider' thing.

    You've gotten some awesome advice here...Sooooo, whatcha gonna do?

  5. You wrote. Am proud of you:)

  6. Kristen, I totally understand your feelings here because I suffer from the same disease. I have a job now where I work overnights sometimes, and I was convinced I would get a lot of writing done during those... well I just finished a run of four overnights and not a word... I don't know if there's some small part that still tries to sabotage us, because we are CLOSE, but Julia Cameron talks about all the tricks the mind tries to play in The Artist's Way, and I recognize them now. You are a wonderful writer, and you will have days like this... but I know in the not too distant future I will be lining up like a bunch of others to buy your books. :)
