Learning to Make Use of My Time

It's not easy focusing on one thing--at least not for me. I tend to stray from what I am doing on occasion.

Lately, it's come to my attention that I am not always the best steward of my time. I could be getting a lot more done in the small amount of time I am given. So, today, I have been more committed to staying on course, not checking my email every two minutes (not like I ever get anything exciting anyway), and aiming to finish my tasks.

So far, I have done pretty well. Tomorrow is a new day, with new challenges. So, I will take it one step at a time!

A New Day

Today was a good day. I spent most of it writing in the local coffee shop, the Taste Cafe. They are so great. It's usually quiet, the smell of coffee floats through the air, and the pastry counter is only steps away. Just the way it should be.

Tonight I am taking little John to Chuck E. Cheese for a birthday party. These are the times to cherish, when they are little. They live for games and pizza.

Writing Sites

I recently discovered some new writing sites. Associated Content,, and Demand Studios, among others. The idea is that the websites cater to writers, photographers, and artists wanting to get published and get their name out there. The companies in turn publish your article on one of their many sites. Everyone wins, right?

It seems like a great idea. You sign up, write an article, take a picture, submit the piece and wait to see if it will be accepted. Not so different than the way we typically submit, just faster.

I'm going to read more about this and get back. It's peaked my interest, and I'm curious about what others have to say about it.

I'll let ya know. Until then, back to the book...

Back to Posting...

It's been a long time since I have posted anything. I don't have a good excuse, but a lot of things going on around the house.

I finished a job in Georgia last August. I worked for a company that builds natural gas pipelines. I handled the payroll out in the field. I worked for them for around eleven years. I hung up that hat to be a stay at home mom. I am figuring things out as I go.

For now, I am still working on finishing my contemporary short novel, and sending articles off in hopes of publication (my fingers would be crossed, but it's hard to type that way)!

So, I after today I will make the effort to add more to the blog. Sorry for the absence!

Commit your work to the Lord and your plans will be established.
