A Change of Pace

We all need a change of pace every now and then.

Like, yesterday, for instance. It was one of those lazy Saturdays in which I didn't feel like going anywhere or doing anything. God, I even thought that watching TV was too stimulating. Well, anyways, nonetheless, I had to write my two essays for my upcoming virtual blog tour starting on April 26, and, let me tell you, my brain was not useful at all. In fact, it had completely turned into mush. Ugh! So, there I was, sitting in front of the computer, fingers on key board, just staring at a blank screen with a dumb look on my face. Drag!

I was getting a headache. In fact, I think I even started with a headache. The point was that nothing was getting done. There was no way I was going to work on this essay today. I needed a change of pace.

And it just so happened that I got a new book, "Mexican Enough"- a memoir by Stephanie Elizondo Griest. And, wow! Did that feel good. Suddenly, I was able to feel the neurons inside my brain again. Talk about a great distraction.

A word of advice: If you ever get stuck writing, distract yourself with someone else's.
