Anyone else remember this episode of Spongebob? After dealing with the issues of my focus this past week, I now relate to that episode (that I haven’t seen in years haha). When sitting down to write for a few hours a day, you expect to make at least a dent in the material, only ending up with maybe a couple pages at max. That was my problem last week. But I may have found a temporary solution!
No I didn’t turn my wifi off. I live off Pandora, so I couldn’t do that! My addiction to the internet is just too strong to ignore. Anyway, not the point!
While digging through a couple of drawers in my desk, I discovered a pair of my headphones. Usually, I have them scattered all over the house, but with my living in two cities at the moment (
Thank you Grad school), they seemed to have disappeared. Either way, a thought occurred to me. Whenever I was at school, I always put my headphones in around campus so I could focus on what I was doing. You would think I would have figured out a long time ago that the same logic works everywhere else! Idiot writer right here folks. I am shamed by my idiocy sometimes. I swear…
Well, you can be sure I popped those babies in and turned Pandora on full blast (Lindsey Stirling Channel is the best. That chick helps me write!). Suddenly my fingers were flying! Before I knew it, I had written almost one hundred pages in only a couple of days! Granted I’ll have to go back and fix many of the typos I’m sure I left behind. But that’s normal. The fact that the story was finally unfolding in my head made me want to jump with glee! Anyone who knows me, knows I wouldn’t do that…ever. But I sure wanted to! Since I won’t physically show my joy, I decided to post it hear.
Now if only I could write the letter T as beautifully as Spongebob did…
