Blogiversary Guest Post and Giveaway : Distraction - Melissa Baldwin, author of Wedding Haters
I truly consider myself a master of multi-tasking. I’m proud to say I can fold laundry, put away groceries, get my daughter a snack and text all at the same time. So why couldn’t I do many different tasks and write at the same time?
Because even a master multi-tasker gets distracted!
No judging, as I will now reveal my FIVE Biggest Distractions that keep me from Writing…Drum Roll…
1.) The love of my life- my amazing, supportive husband. Of course I want to spend every second I can with himJ I try to save much of my writing for after he goes to bed. Thankfully he’s an early to bed, early to rise kind of guy.
2.) TV- I really don’t watch that much TV other than a few of my favorite shows (um, addictions?) The Bachelor, General Hospital, and 90210 re-runs. This is where the no judging comes in. It’s a good thing the Bachelor is only on once a year- I’m completely useless on Monday nights.
3.) Social Media- This is an obvious distraction because lets face it, who isn’t distracted by this? I’ve already checked Facebook three times while writing this post.
4.) My sweet little girl- There are many times that I want to sit down and write or an idea for my book pops into my head, but my daughter asks me to play with her or watch her do something. I have come to realize that as a mother of an only child, she’s my most important distraction so I jot down my idea, save it for later and give her my undivided attention.
5.) Working out, cleaning my house, talking to friends, answering emails—the list goes on. As a busy mother and wife there will always be distractions.
So, I guess I have more the five? Most of us women feel like we have to be the best or do everything. I have learned that it’s okay if everything isn’t perfect and that life doesn’t always go as planned. After a full day of errands, chores and family time I’m thankful for the time I have to write and bring ideas to life…as long as there are no good TV shows on of course!
