Labor Day Labors

OK. Up early. Well rested. Hearty breakfast.

Knowing the characters that live in my building, they’ll be sleeping off a hangover for hours, so I’ll perch myself on the roof undisturbed and write all morning.

Everyone else is spending Labor Day on the beach. Clever me. I will enjoy the sun and catch up on some aforementioned labor.

Computer, check. SPF50, check. Snack of juicy peach, check. Cup of green tea, check. Good to go!IMG_8928Open up computer.

Right back into the difficult paragraph I was wrestling with last night, the point already belabored…

Clouds form.

Still no answers present themselves despite good night’s sleep, hearty breakfast and cheery sun.

They do say 50% of a writer's job is planting her arse in the chair in front of her writing…Check.

But they do say 50% of a writer’s job is planting her arse in the chair in front of her writing…Well, check, here I am!

Lovely pattern that…would make a luscious lace…

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive…

What procrastination looks like…Pretty, right?

What procrastination looks like…Pretty, right?

The grass on the other side looks greener…

I’m strangely drawn.

The Seat of Power

I am master of all I survey…as long as I don’t look back at the computer screen.

City of Dreams…and escalating cost of living, long hours, few holidays and Donald decking Trump, I love you!

City of Dreams––and yeah escalating living costs, long hours, few holidays and Donald Dickhead Trump––I still love you!

Happy Labor Day, NYC!

If you need some sunny reading material for these wistful last days of summer, check out my novel, Silk for the Feed Dogs, which is available here.

  1. 😀 😀 😀 “D Dickhead T” OMG, this is too good!!! 😀 😀 😀
    Sounds like you’re having a fun day.
    I know how much I like to read – other blogs, news, magazines, books and in my brain it’s rattling “you have to finish your post…you have to finish your post…you have to finish…”
    Good luck and enjoy the day! xo 🙂

  2. What a lovely day! Did you get any writing done? I’m the Midwest ripping out weeds after the rain, but the temperatures are cooler. XO
    You look lovely.

  3. I suspect you’re a lot better than I am…I assume everything I think happens automatically without the follow up practicalities..tis a slippery slope.. xxx

  4. Donald Dickhead Trump – I think that’s what he’s going to go with on his campaign posters 😉 What a lovely perch you have, maybe even too nice. A good douse of Irish rain would have you writing in no time, because there’s NOTHING ELSE TO DO HERE!!
