All members of the human race have them. One of those weeks. Then something happens to pick you up and get you back on track. I slowed down this week after a visit to my elderly mother. It's difficult to see her slowly fading into confusion. Her world shrinks as her health issues grow. It took me a few days to get back on track writing after pounding out almost 25K in the last five weeks.
Over the course of the last few days, I caught up on earlier seasons of a few of my favorite shows. My daughter and I share a love of the USA network show, White Collar. I think she loves it for Matt Bomer's blue eyes, and they are amazing, but I like watching a crime show where the crimes have to be solved by outsmarting some really clever thieves. There are only occasional dead bodies. We watching all of Season One.
Another show I discovered last year is FX's Justified. It has the clever dialogue and Raylin Givens is a modern day gunfighter masquerading as a federal marshal. I grew up loving all those great western shows and Clint Eastwood movies. I haven't watched the entire season yet, because I'm finally back on the WIP. I also intend to catch up with my blogger friends I ignored for a few days.
So does anything throw you off stride from your writing routines? What get you back on track? What is the longest you've ignored your writing or blogging?
