It’s harder than I thought

I gave up Candy Crush Saga. Okay, I raced through four levels to reach the last game, then decided enough was enough.

I needed the time I was spending on the game to write and craft and work on other projects at home.

I thought it would be simple, but nearly 2 weeks later, my finger still hovers over the icon wanting to tap it. Just for a little bit. Just one game.

The home renos and never ending projects help. The twitchy need to create helps. So does writing in the dark, with a candle burning nearby also helps to keep me on track.

But I can’t give up games entirely. I need the break, so I’ve broken out my logic puzzle books to shift the focus in my head so I can work on solving those other problems.

It’s still not easy. The urge to open the app remains there, part of a habit I’m breaking.

But so far, I’m succeeding. And that’s what counts.

Until next time.

    Hi Linda, I know that this is not in relation to your blog. But I posted on your Apocalyptic books page. Then noticed that there hasn’t been any activity there for some time. And was wondering if you are still writing books? Which I hope and pray you are!! an AVID FAN!!!

    • Hi Barbara,
      After burning out about 4 years ago, I am finally starting to write regularly again. It is slow going but I’m putting words on the page so I’ll take it as a win:D. You’ll be happy to note that I am working on a a new apocalyptic book, Seeds of Destruction, that I hope to release in February. Of course, I have to get through our current home remodel and keep blowing the dust off my keyboard. I would like to say the demolition has inspired me to write better, but it keeps taking my time away from writing on the weekends. It’ll be worth it in the end. I hope. Fingers crossed.
