This blog has moved to Cheryl Murphy Writes: Chronicles of an Ink Slinger. It became too hard to mirror to this site. Lots of glitches and such. I don't do much to maintain this site anymore so if you're wondering why things might look a bit wonky, that would be it.

If you've navigated here and discovered this dead blog, using the "Subscribe via email" feature in the sidebar will subscribe you to the new site feed, so that's a plus. ;)

An RSS feed of the new site is embedded below.

I hope you'll join me at my new home!

Procrastination station

This is me.  I'm procrastinating so much. I have a lot of semi-legit excuses. But a big one is going to be running out in about 2 weeks.

I'm actually glad for that because well, I'd really like to write again but it seems like now, when I do have the time, I'd rather do something like relax and watch a TV show since my DVR is getting backed up because I'm too busy to watch TV. I think I've developed bad habits since undertaking my semi-legit excuses (husband out of the country for 6 months, kids and their activities, house, labor intensive graphic design class-yanno, that kind of stuff) where I just give in and do whatever else it is I'm thinking about because my time is so limited right now.

I've never understood how people can just write for 2 hours a day. I get it now. Sometimes life just demands that you write for those 2 hours and those 2 hours only whether you want to or not because it's not getting done any other way. And they become much more productive.

I think I get it.

Now I must get to disciplining myself to be strict about how I write. That'll be interesting. Every time I do sit down to write, I look around and see the dishes aren't done or the house is a wreck and all this work has to get done sometime and I'll get more done if I just do it now so I can write after and so on and so on and it all just amounts to a bunch of not writing.

So scheduling my time to write seems like a good idea to me. I just need to figure out what time I have - and that isn't easy either.
