I'm a bad girl. I've gotten behind on my weekly goals because I've been distracted.
The list thing helped yesterday, but I blew off my last task to read Book 4 of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I don't remember the actual title, they're so similar. AND I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to finish it. So, no schoolwork finished.
Today is a super long day at the part time job. I work 8 hours there and then am teaching an intro to crochet class afterwards. A 10 hour day on little sleep. I guess that will teach me. Well, probably not.
So, I've made a new rule. I can't start the next book in the series until Sunday, and then only if I've completed all my weekly goals. I obviously can't tear myself away once I start.
Since today is such a long day at the part time job, it's my off day from writing. I seriously won't feel like doing anything but dropping when I get home around 9pm tonight.
I've owned up to my distraction. How about you? What distracts you from your plans? How do you deal with it? Ever had my problem where you couldn't stop thinking how an author was going to resolve an issue and kept reading to the exclusion of everything else?
