Thank God it’s…Monday? Seriously?

Now, before you think I’m Little Mary Sunshine who pops out of bed each morning with a smile on my face and is full of energy, let me put your mind at ease. That is so not me. I don’t even particularly like Mondays. It’s my busiest day in my day job. I get there early, stay there late.


Monday is the first day of the week. A new beginning. Kind of like a mini Happy New Year every seven days. Just as many of us set New Years resolutions, with goals and objectives to meet over the coming year, the same thing happens to me every Monday. It’s a new week to stick to my diet, to stick to my exercise plan, to meet my weekly page quota, whatever.

Mondays are the day to start over. I look over my calendar from last week and see all the things I didn’t do, all the items on my To Do list I didn’t cross off. It makes me feel kinda depressed and mad at myself for being under productive. But today is a fresh start. My To Do list is unblemished—all those items are just begging me to check them off. And this week, it’s going to be different.

Mondays are my day to say, “THIS week, I’m actually going to…”

So, tell me, what are YOU going to accomplish this week?

Becca Simone writes erotic romance for The Wild Rose Press. She is notorious for making To Do lists and then never looking at them again. But this week will be different. You can learn more about Becca's writing on her website.

I am going to finish both of my WIPs and I am going to be patient about other things going on in my life.

Best of luck to everyone and their to do lists. :)

I'm going to write a certain pivotal scene that has been eluding me.

Becca, good for you! Seriously, I've got to shore my gravel drive. The rains are eroding it... and since we had rain this morning... hey, who knows what it looks like now. On the author front, hopefully I'll get lots done on my current WIP. I wouldn't dare have a to do list, they'd have to cart me off to the funny farm... lol...

Becca Simone said...

Saranna, finish two WIPs??? You stud. Good luck with that. You can do it.

Becca Simone said...

Vivien (love the spelling of your name BTW)--those damn elusive scenes. Got one of those myself. I keep putting it off. Guess I should tackle it, too. Good luck.

Savanna--Yikes on the gravel. How the heck do you shore that? Sounds like a lot of work to me. We've had tons of rain out here, too (Pac NW). Tired of it.

Good luck getting lots done on your WIP. You can do it.
