Getting back to work.

I don't know what it is but I'm having a lot of trouble getting back to work. that is, getting back to my novel. The novel that I'm almost finished writing. But I said that already. I went away for a maonth with every intention of working whiole I was away. then lotus land got me and I did nothing at all. Now I'm back and all I'm doing is bitching about the cold weather and about how I can't get used to it.
Not very productive.
It irritates me because I've been a worker and a doer all my life. I nwever could sit around doing nothing. I couldn't even spend a few hopurs on the beach in the summertime without thinking of alla the other things I could be doing instead of just lhying in the sun.
so what happened?
Is it age? I am getting older, just as everyone else is. I'm certainly not getting any younger. What a laugh. when I look ina the mirror I see an llld guy who doesn;t look anaything like me.
Maybe that's what's wrong. Maybe I'm not me anymore.


  1. You are still definitely you! As you damn well know, that is all we get to be, and my observation is that the older we get the more we are ourselves. So go know.

  2. I know what you mean about looking in the mirror and wondering who that geezer is, looking back. Maybe Cora is right: maybe we get more like ourselves the older we get, and we find that hard to recognize because, when we were younger, we tried so hard to be who we thought we SHOULD be or who other people--or we--WANTED us to be, we didn't really know who we were.

    Glad to see you in the blogosphere!

  3. Tough isn't it, but run the spell check. It helps. Put the "share gaget" up. This makes it easier for us to tell others.
    Love the color usage, easy on the eyes.

  4. I have the same problem. Finished the rough draft and now editing and finding lost of passive voice! Lots of work to fix and can't find the energy!
    Good job on the blog setup.

  5. Congratulations on getting your blog going, Robert. I hope you have fun with it.
