There are good days and there are bad days
Today is a bad day.
You know how it works, the night before you set out everything you’re going to do.
What could go wrong?
All those irritating little things have been taken care of, especially so you could spend this one day so you can ‘stick to the schedule’.
Those re-writes you were working on last night are just not coming together.
The three phone calls, the urgent request for a small job, the family member with a crisis (and how often is that crisis a storm in a teacup) and to top it off, the cat got shut out is now howling at the back door.
Picture next morning.
Computer on, pages sitting in front of you, phone off the hook, no annoying calls, ideas are flowing.
The monitor dies.
