Temporarily (?) Stalled
In response to a query as to how his day had gone, Jon (a writer) replies:
“….it was a plodding day. A fits-and-starts day. I did manage to establish an especially brilliant place for a semicolon.”
~ Stephanie Kallos - Sing Them Home
Jon’s words made me smile. It’s certainly progress of some sort when at the very least, there’s a place for a semicolon to go.
Alas, although I am managing to achieve many “starts” they are far outnumbered by the “fits.”
Real life has a way of interfering, of distracting me.
I need focus and discipline.
Hey – there's a big old fat fly buzzing at the window, the phone’s ringing, I need more coffee…
