I posted my blog this a.m. about how busy I was today. One of the things on my list was treating myself to my next tattoo. That is how I reward all my hard work – spend more money! But I’m not here to bitch about that.
Tattoo’s take HOURS! and at first, I was going to listen to an audiobook. However, when I got there the music was pumping, the people were hustling, and there was just too much commotion.
When the pain started I thought, “How am I going to distract myself from this?” I picked up my phone, look at facebook – boring – the proverbial light bulb went off. I always save my WIP to my drive because I have two computers, so depending on where I feel like working, I can open it and keep going.
Low and Behold I lay for 3.5 hours and I wrote 1221 words! That is 3.5 full sized pages. I know it doesn’t sound like much to a non-writer, but trust me it is, especially with just a thumb.
Even if it wasn’t that much, it was more than NOTHING! and I am ecstatic about it. So if you have a phone or a tablet, always remember to cross your work over to something that can be opened anywhere, and never lose time again.
