Can you say information overload
Mood:  lazy
Now Playing: Nothing at the moment... but give me a second
Okay Ladies and Gentlemen,

I'm currently researching, e-publishing, self-publishing, agents... ya da ya da ya da.... all I want to do is write... well that and get published so I guess I should stop bitchin'. I need at least
50 hours in a day to get everything done. I'm trying to set nightly goals. Does that work for anyone. So far I'm slacking tonight... I've done my research for the evening... put some more feelers out there... No rejections and one request for my manuscript so far, plus several positive emails. I hope you all aren't just being nice.

Road Trips
Mood:  celebratory
Now Playing: Jill Scott -- I've been listening to her a lot lately
First let me say thank you to those who have visited and sent me private emails... I appreciate it.

Tomorrow my family and I will be embarking on a road trip. I love these trips, what a great way to get my thoughts going, well as long as I don't have to drive.

Is it just me or do you find yourself people, home or car watching, imagining what types of lives others live, making up stories about them. Okay, so maybe you have something better to do.

Signing Off
Mood:  lazy
Now Playing: Anything -Janet Jackson (Listen with me if I uploaded correctly)
Topic: Lessons learned
My Song

What did I learn today?
Patience in the face of adversity. Diligence to achieve my goals. I'm working on the confidence which I need to proof my work and not just throw it in the garbage.

God I didn't realize how much I like this song...
Janet summed it up in one sentence...
"Good things don't come easy."
With that in mind I will put everything aside, get a decents night sleep and trudge on again tomorrow.
Night!

It's too early to be up... yet here I am
Mood:  not sure
Now Playing: Dreamer by Supertramp... it's just what's on the 80's station
It has to be too early to up and writing, but here I sit, listening caustiously for the stirrings of little children who at any moment will lull be into a false sense of love and devotion by hugging and giving me a morning kiss before demanding breakfast. Le sigh...
Any other parents out there? I have an 8 year old who I swear was Socrates in a past life... A five year old who is so in love with hip hop culture I can only laugh and shake my head half the time ( I swear before God, when she's twelve I'm chaining her in the basement to keep her off the pole at a strip club). My youngest, well she's like Ganghis Khan...eat...go conquer something...eat some more...conquer...then yell for Mama when her brother and sister bop her in the head... The joys of motherhood.

What get my juices flowing
Mood:  chillin'
Now Playing: Jill Scott
Topic: The Creative Process
What normally gets me writing is putting on some of my 80's favs. I know it's cliche but there is something about that era that starts my juices flowing.
