My husband must secretly hate me being a writer, because last night he sabotaged me—BIG TIME!
He installed a game called Bejewelled on our computer and showed us all how to play. UGH!!! Normally, I couldn't care less about computer games, but this one is close to one of the few I've liked in the past, Tetris.
The entire family spent hours last night fighting over the computer to battle for the highest score. I'm ashamed to say that at the time I wrote this blog, I had the leading score in the classic category with 45,000. *blush* Like there weren't a hundred other things I could have been doing with my time.
Yes, I see this as a major time suck in my future. I've heard of authors playing solitaire, but it never interested me (never even occurred to me, actually). But this game is going to be a BIG TEMPTATION!
I must repeat to myself over and over today: I will not play BJ until I get my synopsis written... I will not play BJ until I get my synopsis written...
What's your biggest distraction on the computer? Especially now that Timmy/Shimmy has been unveiled?
