Monday Mayhem – Catholic guilt edition
So I think I may have to change my author picture to something like this:
I was a complete slug this weekend. I mean, I didn’t leave my house other than to go to the Kum & Go to refill the massive mug.
Nor did I write.
What did I do? I read THE ANGEL by the fabulous Tiffany Reisz. I napped. I watched more episodes of Friday Night Lights than anyone should admit to watching in one weekend.
But somehow, I managed to make it through the entire weekend without adding a single word to my fledgling work in progress.
I did do authorly things. If you missed the Unforgettable Heroes II pre-release party on Facebook, you missed a good time. Lucky for you, you can still order your boxed set for only $0.99. It includes SPRING CHICKENS!
I also packaged prizes to be sent out and started assembling goodies for my street team. I just didn’t put any words on paper.
That’s when the Catholic guilt kicks in. I feel bad about having so much free time and not making anything out of it.
Yes, I know sometimes I need to give it a rest. I know that reading a book or watching television can and are helpful to me as a writer/storyteller. I just have a hard time with the need to have something to show for my time. And the upcoming month is going to be action packed. UNFORGETTABLE HEROES II releases this week, SEDUCING STEVE will be going on sale September 10-14th, then GOING DEEP releases September 15th. In the midst of all that, I will be working edits on FLIP THIS LOVE and possibly A WILL AND A WAY.
So, I should have used this weekend to crank on the draft of LOVE & ROCKETS.
But I didn’t.
And I feel guilty.
Apparently not guilty enough to stop ogling Kyle Chandler, but there you have it. My confession.
Bless me readers, for I have loafed…
How about you? Are you ruled by guilt, or do you revel in guilty pleasures?
