Today's Accidental To Do List

1. Make myself sick to my stomach with worry over the uncertain future. Check.

2. Wander around, alternately freaking out about said uncertain future and flipping on TLC to watch Clinton and Stacy. Check.

3. Aimlessly reading author/editor/agent blogs and counting this as "work." Check

4. Stuffing my face with a generous handful of the donettes I bought for my husband's birthday on Monday (by request). Check.

5. Listening to Britney Spears' new song on repeat because for cosmic reasons unknown, I develop an obsession with every Britney single that has a dance beat (this has been the case since "Hit Me Baby One More Time," which I simultaneously mocked and obsessed over when it came out). Check!

I would say the day's been a success. What have you completed on your to do list today?


  1. 1. check
    2. check, but substitute Comedy Central and Jon Stewart.
    3. check, although I think I mostly just call it work when the day is mostly gone and I feel the need to convince someone else (who doesn't need convincing) that I was productive.
    4. Actually, I haven't eaten anything yet today--nearly noon and I am two gulps away from finishing my morning cup of coffee.
    5. Listening to scream-y emo goth rock because it's what been helping me get through the edits, in hopes that it will help me get started now.

    6. I opened the Word doc and looked at the page I'm supposed to start editing.

    I'll feel better if I can get through at least one page in edits, but I'm still stuck on #3.

  2. I hope you were able to meet your goals yesterday! My goal for today is get through the scene I've been struggling with for the last two weeks. Here's hoping...
