That’s the problem with it. My brain whispers, just half an hour, you’ll be able to stop. After work these past few days, I’ve been assaulted with the urge to play Lord of the Rings Online. It’s a great game. I enjoy it heaps; too much. I’ve had hours and hours to edit, especially tonight with the rain (no walk with Mum), but I’ve been watching T.V. and playing LOTRO.
It’s a vicious cycle. It only takes one session to become addicted again. And tonight was terrible. I started several quests and kept telling myself to do one more thing before logging off. It got to 8.30pm when I finally rushed to a town and left the game. I then had to shower and found when I sat at my Macbook to edit at 8.45, I wasn’t in the zone.
Which brought me here. I hope once I write this, I will be in a better mind set to continue. I’m actually re-writing a scene which should be quite compelling. My MC is learning a key bunch of information, but my silly brain is stuck in fantasy land.
It’s my greatest wish to have full dive virtual reality technology invented before I die. Like Sword Art Online style. Preferably before I’m sixty, but I’ll still play games as a retiree. I sort of hope it doesn’t come out in the next five years because I feel like I’ll get zero done. But maybe by then they’ll invent technology to have my book scenes playing out in front of me when I write. Now that would be cool.
Time for fifteen minutes of [hopefully productive writing]! 🙂
