I have a confession to make: I’m easily distracted.
These last few months I have found that my head is filled with a ton of ideas about which to write and fill the virtual pages of this blog, but I don’t quite get them here. Unfortunately, every flash of light, or sparkle of glitter, has me saying “Oh…. I can get back to that later,” before traipsing off to whatever seems easy, or at least more fun, rather than writing.
I think that’s called: lack of discipline.
Not exactly something to be proud of, but here we are. Or rather, here I am, pen in hand and I’m allowing my scribble to be hurried and sloppy as I rush to get these thoughts out on paper.
There is no glow of screen or multitude of tabs looking back at me, beckoning with an easy way out. Okay, the TV is on, but it’s playing “The Simpsons,” and I know so many of the episodes nearly by heart that it’s more background noise than anything.
But, what does all of this susceptibility to distraction mean for the blog? Nothing. I’m still going to post, but I’m going to make a more concerted effort – just on paper. At least until it’s time to publish.
Are you easily distracted?
What do you do, or find that you have to do, to keep on track?
