So which is the worse waste of time?
* spending a couple of hours reading articles about unsolved murders in the region
* spending a couple of hours playing Fitz and/or WordSlinger and/or Bejeweled Blitz?
* spending a couple of hours puttering around the kitchen with chicken carcasses and dry beans?
I’ve done all three today. I have a pot of chicken stock, six cups of chickpeas, seven cups of white beans, and a plot bunny to show for it. The plot bunny showed up during the video games and had nothing to do with any of the rest.
Family members will approve of the cooking more, but it was just as much avoidance activity as the others. Why is it sometimes so damned hard to just sit down and write? The words are there today. I’m just fiddling.
