About this blog

This blog was created to make it easier for my friends to keep up with my book-writing process. The book is called "Journey to the Heart of God". It is about the importance of pursuing God's righteousness in order to live as He intended so that we can live a full and abundant life: the eternal life Christ came to give us. Happy reading! :D

Oh brain, where art thou?

Yeah, funny thing about writing... it kinda takes brain power. Unfortunately I seem to have inherited this problem where my brain tries to think of so many things at once I can't process any one thing. So it takes extra concerted effort to focus on one task till it's finished. Fortunately I realize the problem so I am often able to cope with it, but sometimes my brain just gets too buzzy and it's hard to focus at all.
Like right now. I've got.... 5 projects I have in the front of my mind right now (including writing) and I am trying to concentrate on one: writing. But guess what? The superinformationhighway of my brain is clogged. As in, major traffic jam. Nothing's getting through anywhere. All I can think of is going outside and getting more oxygen then I come back inside and try to think of ways to write while sewing and studying and cooking and planning all at the same time. Needless to say, it's not working and it's not very productive. I actually got some writing done earlier but it's seriously hard to get anything through all that brain traffic.
So I'm working on different ways to diffuse this mental blockage. Generally when this happens I try to engage in a low-mental-capacity activity that is at least somewhat productive. Like transcribing music lyrics or trying new techniques on my guitar or making something that doesn't tax my brain too much. At least that way I feel somewhat productive. Just not productive in the ways that I want to be productive. Ahhh life is rough sometimes.
But you know what the good thing is? Sometimes blogging gets my brain jump-started and helps me focus my brain in the right direction (writing). I guess that's why I have over a dozen blogs. Whoops, did I just admit that in public? 0:-)
Alright... writing attempt 253 going down right... about... now!

Wait, wait, did you say a dozen blogs???? I have trouble with one! Now you're a multi-tasker, if I've ever heard of one.
