Today’s Author Blog Challenge prompt is:
What’s the most challenging part of your book process?
1. Facebook has some pretty cool memes, I bet. I better check before I settle into the real work.
2. My podcast helps me market my books, so that’s sort of like writing, right?
3. Can I really start the day without watching my recording of last night’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart first? If that’s wrong, I don’t want to be right, baby!
4. What can I do about my book while still listening to my favorite podcasts: The David Feldman Show, The 40-year-old Boy and The Joe Rogam Experience? Oh, and look, there’s a new Best of the Left and The Jimmy Dore Show! And, oh, look, it’s bedtime.
5. Reading is research, right? I should read another book before I write another chapter. Just to be safe.
6. I hear food screaming up in the kitchen. It’s in distress and I need to smother it with my colon to put it out of its misery.
7. I could do some laundry or feed the skinny pig or make even more coffee.
8. If I don’t get the dishes done before She Who Must Be Obeyed gets home, she’ll give me The Look.
9. Maybe I should go take care of some errands because once the kids get home it will be too late. (For what, I’m not sure.)
10. I wonder if there’s anything else on the Internet? And what time does Twitter close today exactly?
The most challenging part of my book process is everything but my book process.
Oh, look! There’s that helpful fear of cataclysmic failure! That train is always on time.
Gotta go write.
