I had great intentions at the beginning of June. I was going to hit my writing hard, bang out at least a few new chapters a week. I had it all planned out. I just forgot one small problem . . .
I don't know what I was thinking. There's no way I can possible give my full attention to my manuscript when the WORLD CUP is going on. I've been waiting four years for this. I've filled out my bracket (which I hate to say is already looking a little shaky) and kept track of all the qualifiers. I'm the defending champion from the 2010 World Cup (viva Espana!), and I have to make sure to give my favorite teams my full support and attention.
So I guess my devote-yourself-to-nothing-but-writing plan is going to be put on hold just a little longer. I fully intend to work on it through the months of June and July . . . from the hours of 8:30-11 A.M., 1-2 P.M., and 4-5 P.M. The rest of the day I'm unfortunately have other engagements.
[Side Note: Was anyone else as impressed as I was by the USA vs. Ghana game? Way to go USMNT!]
