Productive day

I really did look like this yesterday. I worked diligently all day long, consumed twice as much coffee as usual, and by mid-afternoon was wearing long sleeves... Because, due to my intense concentration on writing, I hadn't realized the house had cooled down a lot and I needed to turn off the air conditioner. Brrr!

But even if I risked an overwhelming electric bill and frostbite, at least I was productive. I was intensely focused. (Me! Intense about something!) As Barbara Hannay says, "head down." Yep, that describes it.

This, I think, is the way a good writing day is supposed to be.



  1. Congratulations! Doesn't it feel wonderful!

  2. Absolutely, Magdalena! I've done that too with the AC, lol!

    You always feel so good when you have a productive day. Wishing you many more.

    BTW, I have Blank Book up on my blog in the Hot Summer Reads slide show. It runs continuously, regardless of what current article is up. Do you have a clear picture of you at a booksigning? I'd like to add that to it and your Anthology on Lengend...

  3. Yes, Devon, it felt great! I should admit that the telephone hardly rang at all. That helped with the focus...

    Sia, I'll be sure and send you a whole buncha stuff. Thank you for including my books in the slide show. Your blog look has changed and I hadn't noticed, since I usually see it in my Giant Blog Feed Reader. Very nice layout!

  4. Sounds like congratulations all around!!!
