The Three Hundred and Eightieth Post: The One Where I Re-re-re-recommit Myself!

I have to admit, I have been watching way too much TV – especially these two guys. It’s becoming a distraction from writing, and really…I’ve been wanting to get more reading done. In the spirit of moving forward with things. I am going to say that the day I write this, I am no longer going to indulge in TV either on actual TV or the computer. From here on out, when I sit down to relax, it’s going to be books or it’s going to be writing.

I’ve always fantasized about getting rid of the TV and just reading. Of course, that would also cut into my video game time – which has been also zero because I’ve been putting in overtime to cover the delivery of a new appliance which I talked about earlier. My productivity has ground down to almost nil. I have a lot of respect for the people who are cranking out books on Amazon or B&N on their own. They have a focus that I need to reclaim.

It’s not like I’m hooked on any fiction shows (at least ones that are currently airing). Most of my viewing diet is either those ghost hunting sorts of shows or documentaries. Not inspiring sort of material, but it’s what I like.

Anyways, I need to really bear down and eliminate as many distractions as possible – especially in the face of Pander-Monium next year. It’s time to build those good habits. It’s time to get serious about this and really make some headway.

Yes – I’ve said this many, many times before. I’ve also said this many, many times before: this time I’m serious.

It’s hard to keep this going, and the people that have made a living out of it, especially the indie authors, have my respect. To sit down and do what is effectively two full time jobs while not getting sucked into whatever everyone else is talking about.

Well, I should get to writing. I’m almost done writing the first of three scenes that need some serious re-tinkering and after that, I’m sending it to my beta readers and let them lovingly rip it down to the marrow.

Have a good day!
