#SoCS and Just Jot It Jan 28 – Distraction


Hello? Can I come out now? Is the world sane in here? I really should know better than to spend the day reading Facebook. It seems the craziness is getting crazier out there, and I feel kinda helpless to do anything, you know? I would…

I was on Anne Rice’s FB page today. She was saying pretty much the same thing I was thinking – too distracted to work. My answer to her in the comments was that it’s we writers (yes, I actually had the balls to put myself in her category) need to write to give people the escape they need. Especially in times like these. Writers give the world not only books, but movies, shows, articles… truth and lies and fantasies through which to travel outside of reality, if for only a little while.

I read somewhere yesterday that we are in a state of low-level stress. In a place where anything could happen at any given moment. We’re on our toes so much more than ever before, for most of us. At least for such a prolonged period.

But here I am bringing the crazy here. I want to forget about it for a while. Get lost in a book that has no fighting. (Guess A Game of Thrones is out.) I need a romance novel, something light, something that will take my mind off it all. I may even be forced into watching TV for a change. Or a movie. Yeah, a movie. Time to put Netflix to good use.

I’m going to hang around and read some blogs first… 🙂 Hope you’ve all had a good day, my friends.

  1. I’m feeling like Ann Rice today 😦 Great post Linda. 🙂


  2. I always get distracted, Linda! Hope you have a good day! 🙂


  3. Facebook…it’s a jungle out there.


  4. I am so easily distracted… No always a good thing!


  5. Truth and lies and fantasies…I’m having a hard time differentiating between that and reality, with all the craziness that’s going on lately. I can’t tell the difference between the news and SNL anymore….


  6. I always say that distraction is the best medicine.


  7. This should have a Love button I could click. ❤


  8. I feel the same way and have been focusing my blogs on positive. And I have been watching Netflix and old DVDs as usual. I think it important to stay calm and promote calmness. It is a work in progress for me.
