Timing isn’t always everything.
I’ve spent the past week doing some serious multi-tasking and as things seemed to have settled down a bit I set my energies to finishing a scene I’d set aside because it isn’t the type of scene I wanted to work on while distracted.
An intimacy scene.
So much for best laid plans. I’d no sooner gotten started when I got a text from the dentist with links to forms that needed filling out.
I can honestly say the dentist doesn’t bring to mind the energies of romance or intimacy.
Finished with that I took a break to get a snack which reminded me I needed to come up with an idea for dinner. Finished with that I set back to work on the scene when I got another text asking me to review a web change.
Not happy with the image I explained what needed to change then went back to the scene. Andddd… another text regarding a separate dental form.
Back to the scene and – another text with the updated web image. That one needed a slight tweak so I spent some time on that. Happy with how it turned out I sat down to work on the scene only to find I’d lost the romance energy thread.
Amused I decided I would give readers a glimpse of how it might go for a writer in a typical day.
It is an entertaining consideration – all these interruptions – but the post does serve another purpose. In putting it down on paper, the distraction – the idea of it – is no longer in my mind.
NOW I can go back to the scene!
