#10 - Taking a Break

I am taking a brief break from writing in order to hopefully come back stronger and more ready to go than ever.

A while back I posted a comment on Shanna's blog about my messy desk and how it hinders my ability to write consistently. (It was on June 26 if you're the kind of person who wants to go and see what I'm talking about)

Since that time, the situation with my desk hasn't changed. If anything, it's worse than ever. And it's not just my desk. It's my whole life that's out of control.

As you can see from my last confession, I have a lot of junk in my life. One thing that I haven't confronted very well yet is paperwork. I have 5 filing drawers that are all stuffed to the gills, and I have boxes of papers that have been shoved and stuffed in there to deal with "later". Then I have mounds and piles of papers everywhere on and around and under my desk.

I have been getting a kink in my back trying to write lately because I have to bend over all the junk in an awkward position to get to my keyboard. In fact, I feel it coming on right now, so I'll be brief.

I need to get control of my life before I can be effective and inspired as a writer. I feel strong and ready to confront the problem and I can't wait to step into the rest of my much-less-cluttered life.

Wish me luck!


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog...yep, the comments are moderated, tired of the spam stuff. I'm glad school is in too, but it's the same here too...rush rush rush all in two hours. Then a couple of hours of peace..LOL Have a good one.

  2. It sure helps to get that desk clean. I finally organized mine and now I can't use the mess as an excuse for not getting anything done.

  3. Okay -- I just looked at my desk and thought, huh, maybe Bookworm has something there! So I'm going to do it.

    I'm going to clean my desk and see if that helps with the writing. I'm up for anything included bouncing on one leg balancing a football on one finger, typing with the other hand wearing BYU baseball cap. Hmmmmm.


Thanks for leaving a comment! Come back soon! :o)
