Time to activate Strict Workflow in Chrome and write. It’s a beautiful day outside, so I have my blinds closed. :D It’s amazing how much vacuuming of dead skin I’ve been doing, because I’m shedding. If only it was as neat as a snake skin, but no, it’s like ash, fluttering around and getting into everything.
Sorry about that visual. :D
I am at a bit of a crossroads here. It’s too messed up in my head to explain, but I can feel it. Something’s about to snap, and I know I’m going to be back on track with my writing, soon.
I feel really good today, and I want to do some writing this morning while I feel this way.
Strict Workflow blocks only three sites: two forums and a blog.
I’ve already pushed the button (a cute little tomato icon) to block them for an hour. If I close my browser, Strict Workflow stops blocking sites, but if I’ve managed to close my browser, I’m usually okay. :)
For some reason, when I feel the least bit like I don’t know what to do, I pull those sites up. The thing is, I thought it was when I was bored, but that’s really not it. I’m not bored when I’m writing—I’m having to make decisions about what happens next, and I have trouble with that. A lot of trouble. I don’t like making decisions. So I try lots of things and honestly, writing wears me out, not physically, but mentally. All those decisions! It wears me out and I get to a point where I just can’t make another decision right then, and wham, I’m looking for an easy way to distract myself.
And for a quick example of how easily distracted I am, I started writing this just before 11 a.m., did some stuff—I don’t even know what, but somehow I ended up on 4 different websites looking at infographics, and now I’m finishing this at 12:08 p.m.
So, off to write before it happens again!
Oh, one more thing. There’s been a lot of reconsidering of things previously considered going on last night and this morning. Ain’t that always fun! I’m sure I’ll have lots of useless posts today and tomorrow as a result. Avoid my blog for the next few days if you’re smart. :D
