Being Behind Inspires Me to Quit

Okay, I’m not quitting, yet. But, I’ve gotten behind again. This happened in ’07, ’08, and ’09. I know I cannot get much done Thursday (tomorrow, as I write this). But, I know I don’t need to give up yet. Maybe I can catch up this weekend.

Disruption: The D-Factor

Posted on April 25, 2009. Filed under: Panic, Staying-With-It, writing | Tags: , , , , , , |

This morning has been very weird.  Everything has halts and errors.  Doing something very numerically intensive this morning.  Somehow opened files in a backup directory and data was “missing.”  Did my stuff only to find out these were backup files.  Had to merge with regular files.  Problems all morning.

All these disruptions made a process that normally takes about 45 minutes take over two hours and twenty minutes.  I have watched this for many years; I call it the “D-Factor.”

By definition, the D-Factor is any kind of disruption that provides no benefit but steals from beneficial (especially) creative processes, such as writing.  I had more to say this morning, here, but the crap (errors and delays and re-do’s) killed the time needed for creative process.  Many, many 😦

Script Frenzy is here, and My Life is Already Frantic

I completed Nano successfully a few years ago.  Never did even ATTEMPT to publish the novel.  But, Script Frenzy starts today, I have signed up, and I do not even have time to do, well, much of anything other than what I HAVE to do.  So, how can I possibly crank out 3 or 4 pages today.  I just do not know.

Contacted my pal Boobootwit, and he seems to have even less time than me.  Maybe neither one of us will be able to do it.  But, I HOPE we can do it.  Maybe, just maybe….
