Getting Back To Work! by DL Larson

I'm not feeling it, the "getting back to work" initiative.  It's time to settle down into my routine of working on my WIP each morning before I head to the library to my paying job.  But I'm not feeling all that inspired to dig in again.  That's not like me.  I'm usually eager to get back to work, challenge my characters and get on with the story they have to share.  I have big plans that include sending my completed manuscript out for publishing, work on getting my published books into e-book format, and finishing my WIP by spring 2013.  I should be excited about my plans, but after running to the garage to the frig several times this morning to put items into my new refrigerator, then climbing over several boxes of toys in my office and other debris left over from our remodeling, I can see I need to get organized before I can get down to the business of writing.

I need to de-clutter.
I need to re-assemble my kitchen.
I need to re-claim my back porch and dining room.  They overflow with kitchen items that have been homeless for quite awhile now.
I need to find a better place for toys rather than my office.
I need re-inforcements.
I need to call my kids to come help ~ er, visit me!

I think I'm on to something.  With a little help I could be clutter-free and organized again.  I'm starting to feel the itch to get writing again ...

Hope you do too!

Til next time ~

I can relate. I opened my closet door the other day and had to wade through a sea of shoes and clothes to get to what I wanted.

I had all summer to organize, but I didn't...sigh. I really need to get to that.

I've got lots of clutter also. Need to do the sorting routine of keep, throw out, give to GoodWill. Hope most doesn't go into the keep pile!
