Go Lilly the ex-nun!

ETA: I'm feeling a bit silly and flippant. Feel free to ignore me. Excessive giddiness comes around every so often, so don't worry.

If DL ever needs a vacation from the Weekend Horror Hounds Thread, I'm recommending Lily for a fill in. As I understand it, she still has the ruler she used to beat the little kids with.

No, no, no, little undead doggie. One did not harm the flesh of the squirrels... er... angelic gifts of God. One THWACKED the ruler a millimeter from their dawdling fingers.

Riiiiiiiiiight. That's why when I was growing up, half of my little Catholic friends who went to Our Lady of Perpetual Agony School wore finger casts.

Yeah, they are. *sigh* And just because her first eight husbands died in mysterious circumstances is no reflection on her.

I don't know there was something about that zombie looking fiend that kept me on my toes. (or was that just because he was trying to eat them?)

I seem to be interrupting a conversation here and if so I apologize, but I would like to set a goal as well.

I think that I will try and set a different kind of goal for myself, (First timer, if I'm doing it wrong please let me know ) if that's okay with everyone. I seem to get lost in my writing and forget the outside world. Although it's nice to get lost in the world I'm creating my children are starting forget what mommy looks like.

Today I break that streak!

My goal is:

To keep writing, get my house clean, spend time with the kids, the husband And still work out, keep writing, fold the mountain of clothes that has seemed to accumulate over night, donate blood (just today), try to maintain some sort of schedule and to keep up with my writing.

Thanks!

... Over achieve much, KM? (Just kidding)

If I had that much to do in one day I'd scream.

My clothes magically don't fold themselves.

My kids are gone to school most of the day.

My husband is weird, but I love him.

My goal? Do something other than decorate my surroundings. (I'm getting sick, so I feel like *total* crap today.

... Over achieve much, KM?


Sorry to hear about your sickness...feel better soon! I spent all morning yesterday cleaning my bathroom because my son has a bad gag reflex and when he coughs he pukes...it was great. I can feel for you.

I'm not trying to 'do it all' or anything, I'm just trying to figure out how to separate the characters from myself long enough so I can see the outside world, experience life again. I get kind of anxious if I'm not at the computer anymore, even if I'm not writing...I just want to figure out how to stop it for a little while so I can enjoy some things I used to enjoy.

My husbands great, there's no pressure from him or anything. I just want to feel like I have control over something and right now it's all spastic because I can't seem to get my brain organized long enough to focus on anything else.

Does that sound crazy?

Organization. Treat your work like your job. You spend this many hours working, this many researching, this many for edits, etc. DO NOT overload yourself. You'll go stir crazy. Set your work schedule and stick to it. Don't stop if you get in the groove, but don't go for eighteen hours without getting up for coffee and a pee, you know? You don't have to kill yourself to write. There's time enough, if you get your work schedule straight.
