avoidance: an art

Here is what I've done today instead of writing:
1. Checked my email 3 t imes.
2. Looked fruitlessly at an old story that I might revise some time, but probably not because I hate it.
3. Made the bed.
4. Went down to see if there was mail.
5. Made a Christmas shopping list.
6. Looked in the linen closet for a round brush I used to have that would be good for creative blow-drying.
7. Checked for mail a second time.
8. Had a snack: crackers, cheese, the last olive.
9. Put away some of my summer clothes (you see the desperation, don't you?)
10. Changed the page on my calendar to November.

When do you ever blowdry your hair? Hey, maybe our writing group should have a mutual blog--that would involve more time-wasting, too.

Do you suppose having a blog is a way of ordering and shaping the life you describe--in this case your writing life? To approach it in a more affectionate and social way? To change the dynamic from punishing to playful?
