BAM! A few days ago, I hit a writing pole. My brain could not think of anything coherent to write and I kept finding myself distracted away from writing more than usual.

Although I had not written much over the past few months due to family and health  issues, I felt well enough to jump back on the horse. Imagine my surprise when the horse I tried to jump on took off without me.

Part of my problem is I still had too many irons in the fire. I’m working on too many different genres (I’ve always juggled mystery, crime, romance, non-fiction, scifi, etc.), but for some strange reason I was having trouble staying within even one subject area.

Pulling on the past when I was a kid and had to do homework before I could play, I think I’ve found a solution. No TV. That’s the biggie right there; that’s my playground. No television until I write at least 2000 words.

Just like my New Year’s resolution of writing at least 500 words a day, we’ll see how long this discipline lasts. Wish me Luck!

The only bad thing about each of these venues is the amount of chocolate available that I won’t be able to resist. I need to find someone else to blame for my weakness. Mike. I’ll blame Mike. It’s your fault, hoss, when I gain ten pounds in three days.
