Okay, I’m officially tired of… (Plus, a Puzzle-Contest)
Saturday, June 13th, 2020

UPDATE: The winner is…Tracie!


Not that I plan to cut down. I can’t. However, I didn’t really think my schedule through.

A couple of art challenges started up after I began self-quarantining (I’m still doing it!), so I thought it was a great time to accept the challenges. Part of the challenge for me was being public about what I was doing, in order to keep me honest about producing something every single day. Today is Day 69 of #100dayproject challenge! I post anything I do art or craft related on another website I own (that gets zero traffic), but you can check out what I’ve been doing there if you’re interested:ย  The Emerald Casket

The second art challenge overlaps another art challenge I wanted to participate in, the #icad2020 (index card a day) challenge. Adding a second piece of art to my daily To Do has really eaten my lunch, but I persevere. Today was number 13 of 61 days. You can also check out those little pieces of art on The Emerald Casket.

Of course, I have this blog, which I post to every single day. In the past 7-ish years, I’ve only missed posting a handful of times. It’s truly a daily habit, my “morning pages” to limber up the fingers and the brain, except when I host guests here.

Then, there’s the Collections blog. It’s one I turn to whenever I’m getting ready to publish another anthology. The authors who are featured in the book get to play there, too! Right now, we’re posting a countdown set of blogs, including snippets from our stories and prizes to entice readers to check the stories out! If you haven’t seen the website, head here: Delilah’s Collections.

So, too many blogs. Right now, anyway. And posting is time-consuming. I still have my “real” work to do—editing gigs to wrap up, writing my own stories. As well I insist on family time, too. I really wish I had more stamina, but I love lazing in the pools in the afternoon this time of year.

But a busy me is a me that isn’t getting into trouble…

Do you have something you think is far too time-consuming? Are you considering throwing in the towel? Or are you committed?ย 

If you want to do a little procrastinating, here’s a pretty puzzle. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Puzzle-Contest

For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, solve the puzzle, and then tell me what title would fit if this image was used for a book cover!

    Hey! I visit The Emerald Casket! ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

    I'm close to getting tired of writing blog posts for the books I read. I love reading but writing reviews has been getting hard lately. I keep doing it because I know how important they are for authors. I'm not sure the blogging really helps but since Amazon banned me I keep on doing the blog.

    8:56 – I am really getting bad at these puzzles. ๐Ÿ™

    I am no good at coming up with titles but there have already been some good suggestions!

    Nice puzzle! I do love cowboys! I’m thinking about giving up social media. I kept track and learned I waste a lot of time on it.
