Happy Saturday

Why is it, when we have a lot of time to kill we waste more time and get less done? Seriously. I have most of the housework done and the kids are being good. Do you think I could get started on anything today? Heck no. Instead I am watching cartoons, catching up on the news and drinking copious amounts of coffee (New blend, seems to be inundated with caffeine.)

I should be working on edits for my MG book. I still might make it into that desk to work on it (Yes, I work at a different desk to write. It is smaller and not as cluttered and is more atmospheric.) Or I could be working on a new story that I haven't thought of yet, which is always fun.

In the spirit of Cate's meet knew people I would like to introduce you to some new friends I have added to my blogroll of late. The first one is Adam Whitlatch. A fellow writer from Iowa who has a story coming out in Shroud #7 (next issue). His blog is a rant on all things and is quite a hoot. I recommend reading it. The next is Alexis Grant. She recently got back from Africa and is writing a memoir of her travels. Her blog is about her quest to write it down. I think we can all relate to her and what she is going through, even if we haven't traveled to Africa.

I hope you enjoy reading from my new friends and have a great weekend. Hopefully, I will figure out how to make my day more productive.

I've been off since Thursday and I haven't written a word. I wrote more last week when I worked so many extra hours. Human nature is weird. Enjoy the cartoons!

K.C.- I just wish they still had Loony Tunes on. I guess Tom and Jerry will have to do.

Myrrh said...

Too bad you don't have Teletoon Retro, like we do. Looney Tunes all the time!

Good luck with your productivity. I seem to have misplaced mine ~searches under the couch cushions~

Jamie Eyberg said...

Myrrh- I keep requesting it from Cartoon Network but they ignore me. Good luck finding that productivity. I think my dog ate mine.

Aaron Polson said...

Huzzah for cartoons!

Ann Eyberg said...

did you just say the word hoot? You know who says that? your mom.

plus, since the dog ate your productivity, is that what he yacked up on the floor? If so, productivity is gross once digested.

I am on vacation, thus, so are you.

There is always this: as writers, we are always writing even when we are not.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Ooh, I shall check out your new folks. :D

Jamie Eyberg said...

Aaron- to make it all better they did a Justice League marathon on Boomerang yesterday. :)

Ann- who is going to cook on our vacation? Are we hiring a personal chef?

Bobbie- True. even as I was mowing yesterday, little plots were running through my head.

Cate- I think you will like them.

I wasted nearly a whole day yesterday doing sod all. So easy to do.

The meet new friends idea is awesome. I'll have to check them out.

Haven't written a bleeping thing, although I've actually not been home. I love excuses. :)

Alexis Grant said...

Thanks for adding me! It's fun looking through the rest of your blogroll, too.
