Brain Dead

Friday has arrived, deadline day. Less frantic than some weeks, I mailed off my last story about 1:00 this morning. Phew.

This is the pond at Blue Rock Station. So many beautiful places around here. It was intended to be part of a formal English garden, but it won’t hold more water than your average wetland. The owners were disappointed, but I still think it’s beautiful and it attracks cranes.

I honestly have no idea what I need to do today. I’ve consulted the day planner, my essential guide and record keeper. It does have writing on today’s date, so I assume I’m supposed to be somewhere doing something… but it’s not registering. Brain dead.

Where I’d like to be is in a luxurious tree house. Today would be a great day to lounge on silk and velvet pillows, with the Jeffery Deaver book I’m halfway through, a little Annie Lennox music in the background, and a box of See’s candy close at hand. A gentle breeze with just a hint of fall in it blowing through the windows… that would be a day.

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
