My brain did a back-flip this morning and went into maintenance mode. As soon as I woke up, I turned on the computer and immediately started working on my website, forgetting my blog entirely.
While I do need the website, the blog is more important because I'm writing. Writing is the focus here. I can't let anything get in the way of that. Not marketing, not websites, not tech toys. I do let my garden interfere from time to time (maintenance, again) but the writing is and has to be the focus.
But other things need "maintenance" as well. I have critiques I need to do, a website to maintain, laundry and shoveling snow (which is why this post is so late). While those things are not my focus, I can't neglect them either. I work better when my work area is clean, I've had a shower (duh) and I don't have all these other things niggling at my back-brain.
So today, sadly, is for maintenance. I'll work on the website, finish the laundry, feed the cat (!!) and get rid of all the other stuff that's been itching at me for far too long. Then I should be able to go back to work (writing: focus, remember?) without as much argument from my OCD left hemisphere.
Strange as it may seem, I do have an obsessive-compulsive side that I usually keep locked in a closet. This morning it broke out and it's screaming at me.
See you later. :)
