When this little gem dropped into my inbox, I was tempted to laugh. I am working slow because I’m easily distracted but I totally blame the Magic Bean Sprout for that. He’s hit the “motorboat chasing dolphins” stage–making motorboat noises followed by dolphin-like screeches. When he sleeps, I work. Sometimes I can work through the noise but I’m at the very end of this WIP. The scenes are emotionally…delicate. They have to be nuanced just so and any distraction pulls me out of the correct headspace. Even so, I love the little dickens. So…in the words of the Universe:
Should you ever hear that voice inside exclaim that you’re working too slow, are too easily distracted, or that you should take life more seriously, please rest assured, dearest Silver, that it absolutely, positively is not me.
I’m the one saying, “You totally rock!” –

We’re still trying to figure out how you get dressed so quickly in the morning, Silver.
That’s not to say that I won’t be doing a happy dance when Only and Baseball Boy get off the waiting list and Sprout is in day care. I’ll miss him, but I’ll be happy dancing. 😉
So what’s your voice saying?
