The distraction this morning though, reminded me how much I have missed having an organized space to be able to create and submit my work. It has reaffirmed the need to finish the project of organizing my office and getting it into working shape again.
My goal today – work on my office. I need to finish organizing my stuff in the office so I can move forward with my writing goals. I got up this morning fully intending to start the day early and attack the piles of paperwork in my office. I sat down to my computer at 8 figuring it will only take me a couple of minutes to look over my emails and then move on to the next task at hand.
That was my mistake. I started reading my emails, one of which was a newsletter with writing leads in it. I discovered a place I wanted to submit to and here I am two hours later finally done with my emails. However, I did submit ten poems and two short stories to a place that pays. Now I just have to wait to hear from them.
Next I am going to start on organizing and shifting things in my office to get it to a point where I can just come in and write or work on submissions and have things right at hand without having to shift or struggle with trying to find what I need.
