Saturday morning, hot as Hades. I don't do well in the blazing heat. I'm thinking Alaska sounds good right about now.
I have a lot of work to do today and I'm finding all these other things to do, just so I don't sit down and write. But look....I'm writing this blog...but this is just another way to avoid writing what I need to be writing, I'm afraid.
I'm dusting, vacuuming, rearranging my closet (lemme tell ya that was fun to do on a hot morning) all in the attempt to avoid the unavoidable. And a deadline beckons. So I must get to it.
I'm considering this as my warm-up, because at least now I'm in position to write. Seated at my computer, fingers poised over the keyboard, ready to go, go, go....coffee at the ready, creative thoughts.....um....creative thoughts??? HELLO??!! Creative thoughts? Are you here? Are you awake yet? No answer.....
Well, I can't wait for them to catch up....deadlines don't care about creativity...it's all about the tick, tick, tick of the clock. So I will do my best and hope like crazy that my sweet and lovely Muse will show up. She likes to visit in the wee hours and I'm simply not in the right state of mind to entertain her at 2 or 3AM. Though I have been known to throw a party or two in her honor.
Heat makes me sleepy. Round the clock I'm sleepy. As Cher said to Nicolas Cage in "Moonstruck", "SNAP OUT OF IT!" That's exactly what I need to do. So I will close this entry for now and get to the task at hand. Wish me luck. I need luck. I need inspiration. Perhaps I even need a miracle, but at this point, I'll take whatever I can get.
Stay cool. Stay inspired. Until we meet again.....
