My dog bit my finger yesterday – not like a little love nibble – a full-on skin shredding bite. I had to bind up my index finger in a lovely band aid, which really handicapped my typing ability.
It was frustrating to hit the wrong keys, and I finally gave up. But it got me thinking about all the other things that mess up my writing time. Some of them are unavoidable (kids, barf, meetings). Some are things that I allow to effect me (discouragement, writer’s block, television).
What stumbling blocks do you put in your path and what do you do to get around them?
I’ve been lucky enough to meet a couple of really incredible people – who also happen to be awesome writers – and they have been excellent motivators. Thanks for all your positive thoughts and encouragement!
