It's only early July but the lazy days of summer have settled over me. I wrote a lot this weekend but when I sat down at the computer this morning and pulled up my WIP, I closed it again. I thought about writing something new to get the energy flowing, but all I did was sigh out loud. I didn't want to goof off. My goal is to finish this first draft by the end of August. The cicadas are humming in the trees and it's so hot even the cat doesn't want to go outside. Then I remembered that Verla Kay pointed out in a recent post that even if you are only thinking about your project, you are still working on it.
So, I thought about it while I prepared a small pork roast, potatoes, and carrots. I'll think a little more about when I finish writing this, pick up a dust cloth, and give the house a "lick and a promise" as my mother used to say. Later, when the good smells from the oven emanate through the house, I'll be in my favorite recliner. Once in awhile I'll sip on a tall glass of iced tea while totally immeresed in a great book. The best thing is I'll be guilt free because I "worked" on my WIP.
