Seven Writing Links -- volume 77

This coming Monday is Memorial Day here in the States, so most of us will be enjoying a three day weekend.  It would seem that this would be the perfect time to get some writing done, but in my case it always seems that these weekends just sort of shoot on by, and before I know it, it's time to head back to work and I haven't gotten any writing accomplished.  And then I'm left with intense feelings of guilt.

I'm tired of the guilt!

So this weekend I'm determined to get some real writing done, whatever it takes.  Sleep is for suckers, right?  Of course, this is also the weekend I'm planting the flowers in our garden.  It's also the weekend for the Civil War enactments at the Henry Ford Greenfield Village.  

Arg! Why does life keep getting in the way of writing?

Enjoy the weekend and be productive!

  1. I think you have a busy weekend, Ken. Better to get back to the writing when the pressure of 3 free days is past!

  2. Yeah, why does life do that to our writing?!

    Hoping you have a great weekend and can get a little writing done. You'll be happy with even a little because that's better than nothing at all. :)

  3. Woohoo! I actually managed to stay up on Friday night and get some writing accomplished. That's a good start.

  4. Same here. You'd think the slow of summer would give me lots of free time, but it never does. I have given myself a pass to only do what I can, but it isn't working...the guilt lingers.

  5. Hope you enjoyed the enactments. Sounds fun. I haven't gotten anything done either. Feel better?
