Because I’m nothing if not a procrastinator.
I’m listening to some musical numbers. The Sound of Music, Phantom of the Opera, The King and I, Annie… I actually think I want to watch Annie soon. I haven’t seen it in a couple years, but I have it on DVD. I’m pretty positive that the last time I watched it was right after I bought it. I bet my nephew would love to watch it with me if today wasn’t Sunday and we didn’t have two TV shows to watch later. I have him on Thursday and Friday afternoons though, so we can watch it one of those days. :]
I didn’t write at all yesterday. We got all caught up on Glee and Grey’s though, so that’s good. I fully intended on sitting down to write before bed, but I was far too tired and had to be up at 3:45 this morning. So yeah, it just didn’t happen. BUT! I have three days off this week, and I’m going to write extra lots. I predict that weekends are going to be very tough for me to get any writing done. I’m far too wound up after working 10+ hours on Saturdays and then again on Sundays. I’m not even going to bother trying to get any writing done tonight. Right after I publish this post I’m going to snuggle in bed with my husband and watch some Heroes.
I’m only writing this blog post so that I have an excuse to listen to music for a little bit. (Also so that I don’t go two full days without writing anything at all.) I’m not the type of writer who can listen to music as I write fiction. Blogs, yes. Stories, not so much. I’m too easily influenced by things that are happening around me to be able to focus on writing a story that’s purely my own with music going on. When you think about it, music is really just a short story told to music, and if I can’t read during NaNoWriMo, I certainly can’t listen to music while I’m writing.
Walter just brought in a hat full of change from his car, jingled it, and said “How many dimes do you think are in here?” and I said “Two?”. So he dumped the change on the bed and Lo! there were only two times in all the bunch! (Only two dimes. *sad face*) Then he told me I should go to all the circuses where you guess how much of something is in a jar, because apparently I am a circus freak. His words.
Also it is freezing in my room. I’m debating turning on the heats.
