my name is Wendy and I'm a writing avoider

I haven't done a bloody thing at my WIP for a week! Isn't that terrible? And it wouldn't be so bad if I had something else to show for it... but I don't really have all that much. I did some web work for clients, which was productive, and so much more fun now I have Dreamweaver on my lappie, and I did finally start work on bringing my '06 accounts up to date [agh, working on the old PC is a nightmare now... much more RSI from that than there is from dear old lappie!] but not a lot other than that, apart from fashioning a few home made book banners with newly installed Photoshop... oh, and of course, my MySpace redesign [out of necessity] and time spent exploring and refinding as many of my old friends as I can [again, out of necessity]. All that has disconnected me from writing, big style...

And I'm not sure today will be all that great for a big new productivity push either. Himself has some domestic reorganisation in mind, and yours truly will have to be involved in that whether she likes it or not... and once I've spent any length of time lugging around boxes, books, papers etc etc, writing is the last thing I feel like doing! Lying around watching the telly... or just vegetating like a zombie will be all I'm fit for...

But tomorrow... ah, tomorrow... I will do better!

Famous last words... ;)

We're living parallel lives! Last night my "hero" announced we're going out to buy paint this morning. Having said that, I'm up and he's currently still in bed ;) Good luck with yout reorganisation!

Of course tomorrow will be better - I do lots of things tomorrow. It's just today and yesterday that I'm lazy.

I'm such a terrible procrastinator that it always amazes me when I actually get something done. As a matter of fact, I'm procrastinating right this very minute. I'm supposed to be writing!

I'm with Val. I do lots of things tomorrow. :)

Yeah, Val and Anna, I *just* live in this world of 'I'll do it tomorrow...'!

However, I've actually done a bit of editing and a couple of hundred words... miracle, or what?

Men, eh, Saskia? Actually mine went clay pigeon shooting this morning [newest hobby] and is now watching a documentary about the Titanic... We'll probably have this mad, disorganised flurry of activity around tea time that'll involved some strained tempers... sigh... How's your painting going?

I love Dreamweaver and it's a great and favorite distraction! Go girl!

Thanks for stopping by....

Painting? Well we're looking at it. The paint we bought. LOL It won't be done for a while yet but I'm just glad we pulled it together enough to brave the DIY warehouse. ;)
