Get it Together Get it Togeter Get it Together

  • 370711782.jpgBegin at the beginning,” the King said gravely, “and go till you come to the end; then stop.”–Lewis Carroll (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland)
  • It’s a gift really. I’m talking about my ability to focus on many things as once.  It’s as if I was otherwise occupied when they passed out the filtering system that tells me that this piece of stimuli is more important than that bit of stimuli.  Most likely I was researching a story idea, that reminded me of another subject I wanted to learn more about, that made me think of this guy I went to school with, that looks alot like the postman, that makes me remember to check the mail, pay the bills, make the grocery list, clean out the junk drawer, return library books, de-clutter the office, not to mention the hall closets, get receipts together for the accountant, work book edit, contact business profile clients, do billing, and oh, and yeah, catch up on blogging. 

    January in Texas equals spring cleaning at my house/home office.  It’s my month to make order out of the chaos that was last year and yesterday.  When do you, and how do you get it together?  Or do you?  Carpe Diem Y’all, Michele

    1. Ah-h-h, that stream of consciousness path to disorganization is familiar to me.

      One day, I swore I was going to write all day. But first, I had to check my e-mail messages. And then I saw this link to photos of an actress I hadn’t seen on screen for many years. She’s now my age. I had to know what she looks like today. And then I read the comments that other people had left on that site (most of which were funny, yet terribly mean). Next thing you know, I’m thinking about what I’m wearing to acting class, tomorrow. This sent me to Target, in search of more flattering workout clothes.(There’s no such thing, I’ve since decided.) And so it went for the rest of the day. I did ZERO writing.

      Best of luck to you from a kindred spirit!

    3. Sometimes I feel as if I work in circles. Literally. Somehow at the end of the day, what needs to get done, gets done, but me-oh-my what a circuitous path it can be!
