Mood Swings

As I sit here and write this post, I should be writing my book. I had all these grand intentions. My time was plotted out and everything. But then I tried to go to the store and my daughter had a complete meltdown. I mean, screamingatthetopofherlungsandnotstopping kind of meltdown.

I had to leave my crap in the cart and rush home to put her to bed. I was little angry and most defiantly frustrated. When she finally settled down to sleep (and my son went outside to play) I thought it was my chance to write.

I opened up my document and stared at the screen. I couldn't write becasue I wasn't in the right frame of mind. I think I'm typing this now as a way to get myself back to that point. My poor characters have been sitting in the shadows just waiting for action, and I'm here waiting for the action to come to my brain.

Everyone, breathe deep with me. Close your eyes and make a humming noise and send good vibes my way.

Ah, that's better. Time for me to get back to writing.

What do you do when you aren't 'in the mood?'

*** Update: I wrote 1,200 words. Writing this post helped :) ***
