Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in.

Exhibit A

If you ever wonder why I can't get any work done, this is the reason:

Really, I shouldn't blame it all on the cat. I didn't get many words out yesterday and she wasn't laying there all day (in fact, the photo was from this morning). We spent the day watching the election coverage and when it was pretty certain what the outcome would be, I switched over and watched part of the House marathon on USA. By ten I was feeling pretty guilty about not writing any words (see? NNWM does have a purpose) so I sat down and worked out the bones of a new wrinkle in the plot. Thus the small, yet important, word count.

I guess what I'm trying to say is no matter the distractions, and no matter the time, you can always make room to get a few words out. If the motivation is there.

And if the cat isn't sitting between you and your keyboard. (Or you and your coffee.)

Oh yeah, I have this problem too. Three times over. I especially enjoy when they decide to disconnect printer wires and the like. So much fun figuring out why things aren't working! Such is the joy of cat ownership.

Yep, the person who can discover liquid motivation is gonna be a rich man.

I can only cheer you on at this point. I have (long ago) been bitten by the procrastination bug and I need intensive care to continue moving forward. Remember the old commercial?

"Help me I've fallen and I can't get up." I think you are doing a good job and making great progress - stay MOTIVATED!
