Have you ever been here: I'm completely amped up and psyched about writing, but I just can't get into the story I want to get into. I'm writing about everything else outside of it. Coming up with great stuff too, that I'm sure I'll use at a later time. But I just can't wrap my head around the story that actually needs to get done. So, I'm writing this, when I should be writing that. It's not writer's block. It's some other dysfunction.
Part of it is my self-diagnosed ADD. I'm just so easily distra-I really like those shoes Carrie has on. I need to learn that chord on my guitar before I go to sleep. I mean why did he call me when he knew he couldn't talk? Why is the left one bigger than the right one? I need to clean my room before I go to sleep. Let me work on that other story about the chocolate. I need to go to Walgreens and get some chocolate. Yes, before I get started writing, I need some chocolate. Let me just finish writing this short story really quick, and get it out of the way, so I can write that poem that's been running around me head. Ohh, Walgreens has Ben & Jerry's for sale
Yeah, that's pretty much how it goes when I try to concentrate on one thing.
I think writing this talked me into getting back into the story that I'm supposed to be working on. Let me grab it while it's there:)
