Happy Star Wars Day (on May the 4th....get it? May the Fourth...May the Force....)
I missed this day last year, so I have been looking forward to it for 364 days!
So, a Star Wars inspired post seemed appropriate:
Sometimes, you open up the laptop with the intent to do something important, like work on your WIP. But first you have to check a few things, you know, just to see...
And the next thing you know, you are totally off track. Maybe you are distracted by your emails or maybe it's even worse than that. Maybe checking the internet (twitter, blogger, facebook, what-ev) has made you feel like you've been fooling yourself. You? A writer? Hahahahaha! If you were a writer, you would have agents fighting for your attention. You would have books auctions with HUGE advances. You would be a Best Seller.
And none of those things are your reality.
And so you leave the internet all discombobulated and confused, thinking, Those aren't the droids I'm looking for. You step away from your computer (and your WIP!!!) and eat too much ice cream and it doesn't help.
DON'T LET THE INTERNET PLAY JEDI MIND TRICKS ON YOU!
THOSE ARE THE DROIDS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR! Right there, sitting under your nose!! Don't let Obi-Wan get all up in your grill and mess with your head. You know what you need to to--WRITE.
Don't EVER let stuff you read online make you feel like you can't...or that you are doing it the wrong way.
Or you will end up with this guy:
So, go on, go wrangle up your droids and get cracking on that WIP!
Queen's Note: I resisted the urge to write this entire post in Yoda-speak. (or, The urge I resisted....hahaha).
Be glad you won't be seeing me tomorrow. Speak like Yoda all day I shall.
