Monday Randomness

I have a truck-load of stuff to do today including going to the bank and post office, two things I hate to do only because it means leaving the house. I'm not agoraphobic or anything, but leaving the house means getting myself together and when I'm in the thick of writing a book, that's just time I don't have. Chances are good "getting myself together" today will mean a ball cap and sunglasses. Ah yes, the fashion friends of a writer on a deadline.

Besides those errands I have to work out, vacuum and write. All things I wish someone else could do for me. Don't get me wrong, I like my writer job. But I don't love the fresh writing. I like revising an already written page, not creating a fresh one. Some of you are nodding. Some of you are raising an eyebrow. Hey, it's a process. At least I already got the kitchen floor mopped. I thought it best to do that before I was really awake and could argue myself out of doing it.

Other things:

There's a new group blog in the neighborhood: Girlfriends Book Club. Check it out if you like women's fiction.

Have a great Monday! I'm still accepting applications for an unpaid intern. Just saying.


  1. Good luck with getting it all done. Happy Monday.

  2. I'd offer up my daughter as your unpaid intern, but the distance is probably problematic. I hear you on the 'getting yourself together' thing - especially since I just ran my errands in a t-shirt and sweat pants. ;o)

  3. You know, the day you wear your schlubby clothes is the day you run into your ex boyfriend/ ex boss/ Brad Pitt.

    Ugh- someday I will have a housecleaning service. Just to vaccuume, dust and mop.
    SOME DAY!!!

  4. Kristen, I love the revising too;) Fresh pages are just so... damn hard!
    And thanks for the shout out on the Girlfriends Book Club blog

  5. You and me both on the unpaid intern deal. That sounds like a dream come true.

    Hope you get everything you need done!

  6. I feel like I'm being replaced. My services are no longer needed here?

  7. I went to the post office yesterday thinking it would be a quick trip. Grrr. Not so much. Totally threw my writing day off ;)
