(aka... writer's block denial)
1.) Facebook/Blogging/Twitter/IM are all very important social networking tools. Never mind that I spend seven and a half hours a day using them...
2.) Reality TV=research (those of you who read my facebook status on Monday night... be quiet!)
3.) I have to go to the mall to... people watch! YES! I can get ideas for my books while I shop at Macy's. Seriously, I can!
4.) I have a headache... er... wait, that's a different top ten excuse list!
5.) The word I need just won't come to me.... Let me run a nice bubble bath and soak while I contemplate it.
6.) E-mail! I have E-MAIL!! MUST.... CHECK....
7.) I've been ignoring my kids lately. I should make them food. Maybe some chocolate chip cookies, brownies, pie, scones.... What? Oh, I ate all the cookies??? Um, no I didn't. It was.... your dad. Really. I swear.
8.) Carpel Tunnel. But it's this weird selective type of the disease because I can still type on my blog and my facebook status. I know, strange, huh!
9.) I just killed off a character. I need to observe the proper mourning period before I begin again.
10.) My dog ate my manuscript????
