Cleaning my office (or stalling? Who me?)

Tip of the Day: Just say no to table sharing with strangers. When you're writing anyway.

My office is clean! Well, let's be truthful. It's clean-ish. It's clean in the sense that I can now walk in without stepping over anything and I can get behind my desk and actually set stuff on my desk.

Why the sudden cleaning? Sunday I was supposed to work on my current WIP (work in progress). I'm a little over halfway through and I have an outline and a sense of where I'm going. But I'm also kind of stuck. The last few times I've sat down to write it's taken me a long time to get words down and I've been kind of veering off. Like, adding in new characters, new situations, new problems. Things that weren't in my outline. So now I'm worried that I'm just making a mess of things and I've been hesitant to go forward. I will go forward of course because I want to finish the book. And I know I can always revise, revise, revise and it will all be okay if I just get that first draft written down. But I'm being slow about it. Thus the office cleaning!

I've also been thinking I should try writing at home more. Sure, I've never gotten very far with this in the past but I should give it another try. Starbucks will always be there if I just can't make it work.

LOL, I love that you went ahead and took a picture of the Bead Lady's layout. You have such a way of finding the fun in a bad situation.

Now I really, really want to clean my office. Wait. No I don't. I just want my office to be clean, I don't really want to DO IT!
