Monday Mayhem – Top 3 ways of goofing off

Posted on Jan 18, 2016 by Maggie Wells   2 Comments | Posted in Blog

I’ve had a pretty high demand week in terms of the day job, which means I haven’t had a lot of energy for the night job. Oh, I’ve been making my daily word count, I barely made the loftier weekly goal I set for myself, but I did. I also found some time to goof off along the way. Here are the top three ways I avoided being productive:

3) I picked up a romance classic. I’ve never read The Flame and the Flower by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss, so I’m doing that now. Now, I totally get why this book drew so many authors to the genre.

2) Dating – I suckered my man into taking me out to dinner and the bookstore. We had one of these:

1) The West Wing on Netflix. I loved this show. Unfortunately, when Fodder and I started dating, our nightly phone calls preempted my viewing of shows airing at 9pm. I’m finally going to watch the last couple of episodes.

Don’t worry, little by little, I’m making progress on Ransomed Heart. I’m having a great time getting to know Ty and Millie better. I can’t wait for you to meet them!

Oh, and if you haven’t had a chance to read the Hot Nights in St. Blaise series, I’ve re-released it! Grab your copy here:

    I’m constantly impressed by your ability to meet your goals. That cookie sundae thingy looks like heaven in a bowl. I accomplished what I wanted to this week in my writing and editing goals, and I’m on track to finish my story by the end of this month–the best birthday gift of all! 🙂

    I’ll ditto everything Evelyn said, minus the part about meeting my own goals! You are as amazing as that sundae, that’s for sure. We watched all of the WW last year, so anytime you feel like discussing any of it, let me know! Enjoy your goofing off time – I’m sure it will be brief! – and I’ll look forward to meeting your new couple!
