I have been rubbernecking lately, like a driver on the highway who’s seen an accident on the side of the road. When I start a project and get moving down the highway, I tend to crane my neck to whatever other notebook or project happens to be laying on my desk. It tends to slow me down like those drivers on the highway. Hey, I guess it’s a good thing that I have that many things going on in my head, but boy do I need to just focus straight ahead put my hands on the steering wheel, pedal to the floor, and focus on driving my projects forward.

I guess I would not have a chance at writing if my brain was not jumping, thinking, dreaming, but sometimes I just need to stay in my lane. I need to keep my eyes on the road until I have reached my destination. I need to put down the imaginary phone, stop texting, put my hands at ten and two, and head straight on down the highway of writing! Everyone faces distraction and I’ll figure it out, but I may buy a neck brace!
