#SoCS – Cozy Mosey


I’m just gonna mosey on over to my laptop like I didn’t promise last week to hit it early, and write an ol’ blog post. You know, I could just change the prompt to Stream of Consciousness Sunday. Would anyone notice?


I went to great lengths to get some writing done today. I sat in the back seat of my car with my computer–no Internet access–all cozy-like while a thunderstorm raged outside, and I still managed to procrastinate a bit as I tried to type. I managed a little under 800 words, bringing my third book of my series up to 72,600 words so far. I figure I’ve got about 18K left to go to get to the end of the story.

I’ve been procrastinating a lot this week. I meant to post the mid-month reminder for the Escapist Coloring Club but I didn’t get around to it. May is also the month I should have posted the contest for the new One-Liner Wednesday badge. I’m seriously, honestly going to miss our monkey friend. But I suppose it’s only fair to give the picture back to Cheryl and let someone else have a chance. I won’t complain AT ALL if she decides to enter the same badge back into the contest, though. (hint, hint)

I shall do that this week. As for the Coloring Club thing, may as well wait for June 1st, eh?

I don’t mind putting it off. In fact that’s what I’m best at these days.

But only when it’s my own stuff I’m working at.

I need to start treating myself as if I was my own client. Then I’d get everything done. On time.

  1. Treating your own work with the respect you’d show a client’s is a great idea! Make it so, Number One!


  2. So many distractions life offers, along with the responsibilities… but what a great idea to take the computer to the back seat of the car and a thunderstorm to keep you there for a bit.


  3. I feel you Linda. My husband keeps saying I’m going to run myself right into the ground. I seem to say, “ Oh shoot, I still need to…” an awful lot these days. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed my little friend, and I have others that would love to ‘hang around’ waiting for your great prompts and all those terrific One Liners. 😉


  4. I was just taking some pictures for the Coloring Club so I’ll hold on to them until next month – see that puts me ahead! Our creative minds make us wander…and you know what happens then.


  5. Kick back and relax. You’re the queen of your own prompt so if you’re late, that’s allowed!


  6. It’s comforting to know I’m not the only procrastinator.


  7. Oh boy, do I hear ya. You know how they say to “pay yourself first” when you are doing a financial budget? (And I never manage to do that either.) It is the same thing with “me time.” In theory . . .


  8. Yes I procrastinate a lot! But why are you working in the back of your car with no internet and during a thunderstorm… Or am I missing something? Sending hugs 💜

    • I had the luxury of escaping the house to wait for my son, Chris, to watch a movie at the theatre. The only place I can go is a restaurant but I didn’t want to spend the money, so I stayed in the car in the parking lot. No Internet = no bloody FB to distract me. And it was storming outside.
      Sorry I didn’t explain it in my post. All that “no editing” stuff kinda makes things confusing sometimes. Bloody rules some people make up, I tell you! 😉
      Thanks for the hugs, my friend. ❤


  9. We all have days like that Linda!
