My Brain Needs a Pause Button

Lately every time I sit down to get some words on the page or paint on a horse– I end up getting distracted by The Shiny™ and don’t realize I’ve been distracted until it’s time for bed.

Right now the only time I can guarantee I’ll stay focused is on the Saturday Write-Ins at the coffee shop, where I don’t have any choice but to write. (Or chat with friends.) ((But mostly write.))

I can’t keep putting this off. I need to find a way to work from home consistently, even if it’s only for thirty minutes a day, or this whole thing is a wash. I can’t spend my life hanging out in coffee shops, no matter how alluring the décor—at least not until I’ve won the lottery.

On a good note I’ve gone through and cleaned out the guest room again pending a parental visit, which means I have a computer with a window that faces the sunrise. As nice as the desk is in the bedroom, it’s also dark and not that inviting once the sun goes down (or before it’s up).

So maybe adding a little sun into the equation will help sort things out…

Or I just need someone to invent a Dragon Telepathically Speaking… *wistful sighs*
