When I got home from work at 5:30pm today, I had an overwhelming urge to sit down at my computer and organise my writing-in-progress drafts ready for an entirely new writing regime I wanted to start imposing upon myself immediately.
See, I’ve been pretty lax recently in getting any kind of writing practise in, and to be honest, I think it’s starting to show, but I’ll spare you the details of that for another time.
Before I could get into the swing of things, I wanted a cup of tea and to watch an episode of the Big Bang Theory. I resuscitated the MacBook long enough to pull the work I had off Scrivener to put into Word, while deciding I also had time to watch some episodes of Fringe, so I watched two of those, all the while adding nothing to the whole writing thing.
After that, I strode upstairs with sheer will and determination to get to work. I sat down at my computer, opened up my e-mails and downloaded the documents I sent to myself. Around that point, I remembered that I’d recently picked up a copy of the Inception score, so I put that on, and spent about half an hour just listening to that, really feeling the song and started thinking about NaNoWriMo, although I didn’t actually write anything down, so I can’t really count this as progress, either.
While the music continues, I decided that the blog’s design needed an overhauled, and therein spent four hours tweaking the HTML and CSS of a new blog style (well, technically re-using an old style, but…anyway, it’s the one you see here –>).
Now it’s quarter to one in the morning, and I’m writing a blog about writing exactly 0, that’s ZERO, words, doing not one jot of the organisation that I told myself I was going to do, while watching The Animaniacs.
Looks like I’ll get to work on my organisational overhaul tomorrow.
