I had so many plans of things I wanted to do this summer. It mostly pertained to my writing. And I must say that for the first two weeks I was very productive. I finished up a manuscript and got it in the mail to a publisher. (I’m still hoping for good news on that one I might add. )I bought a few magazines and have done quite a bit of reading on different topics. But then things came to a halt. I found myself no longer writing. I could make excuses that my air conditioner broke and forced me to spend 2 nights in a hotel and another night out of town at my daughter’s just to survive from the heat. This indeed happened. The air is working once more but I’m not. I am enjoying the lazy days of summer. But the guilt is getting to me. I am looking for the motivation, the jumpstart, if you will, to get me into the swing of things. Any suggestions on how to self motivate?
