Cleaning your house adn Nano Day 6.

Why is it so hard to keep my house clean? I will admit, I have never been OCD when it comes to cleaning, but I could always pull a deep clean off of the whole house in about a day. And by deep clean I do mean scrubbed (usually including Baseboards, floors, vents, the works). But lately it is just like I am trying to keep my head above water. It probably doesn't help having a million boxes in my living room, or the fact that I spend most of my time thinking about the other house. (UPDATE: All the textuting has been done and it looks great. I am going to tile the downstairs bath on Saturday!) Oh it is beyond frustrating! And on top of that my Nano word count just keeps slipping farther and farther behind. I need motivation. So last night I got the house livable clean and so today I hope to write. My main goal is to get to 7,000 words so I can read my book which came in the mail yesterday. Having a new Juliet Marillier book on my nightstand and not allowing myself to open it, even for a peak, is torture. What things torture you enough to motivate? I hope this one does the trick. So Today lets work on Time. Write for three 30 minute segments with out stopping! Can you do it? If you do then go and down load that song you have been wanting from itunes! And if you do 4 segments? Then crank up the music and dance to that song like it is 1999! Hey, we need exercise too! WRITE ON!

You can do it!! I think you're amazing for doing Nano with everything else going on.

30 of writing, that's not even movie or the kids. Do you need to borrow somethign to keep them entertained? Let me know!

Hey...about the post...I didn't even use the nuts and I loved it. My husband doesn't like nuts at all..so I just omitted them! It is really yummy!

I'm way behind, too, since we went on a little road trip. I am trying so hard to get back in the groove but inspiration hasn't hit yet. When it does, watch out because nothing will tear me away from the computer!

I am religious about the 1700/day count, but it has kept me up later than I would like. I am not a prolific enough writer to catch up if I fall behind, so I HAVE to keep up the daily grind! I do believe in little rewards a long the way though. Good idea!

Wow -- deep cleaning the house in a day? You rock!

The date on that signing has been changed to the 15th -- hope you can make it!
