Sometimes the universe conspires just to mess with your head.

Last week I reached the three-quarters point of the first draft of Ghost Dusters Four - yay! I’ve been on a roll and happily meeting my daily writing quota and usually surpassing it. Then *boom* flood in the kitchen that translates into major water damage in the basement. This means workers are coming in and out of the house nonstop now for a week. Of course they have to always stop and talk to me too, however, I can handle a few words here and there without losing focus (I have four kids afterall).

Bella on the other hand has become a real problem. She is determined to protect me from these strangers at all costs. I’ve written today’s quota entirely with a Yorkie on my lap. Thank God she’s not a great dane!

Who or what gets in your way when you’re trying to reach your goal?

Awww, she's protecting her mommy. How cool is that? At least you can type around her. =o)

Sorry to hear about your flood. That totally sucks. Way to go on the progress for GD4, though. I can't wait to read it.

About the only thing in the way of my goals is myself.

So sorry to hear about the leak, but glad it isn't getting you down and isn't giving you writer's block!

Bella is beautiful!

What would we do without our fur babies?

coffee, thanks for stopping by! Books, books, books are my favorite hee hee!

B.E., it's so true that the main thing that blocks us from our goals is ourselves.

Leslie, fur babies are the best :D
