Time...how precious


Time, doesn't care if you're reaching for it, trying to keep a minute of it in your pocket, or trying to understand- as you sit, when it moves on only to abandon you on a lonely road.  Time is always on the move and sometimes it bullies you.  At least it can seem that way.  I'm a runner, (yea, yea, my indulgences- red wine- keeps me on the move) and whether it's on the treadmill, due to weather and time, or outside, a couple of miles sets my mind straight.  It's as if running helps settle things down so they find their place.  Running outside has its entertainment, there's the terrain, the sights, and in my case, dirt bikers, and off road toys that race through the desert.  Then there's the treadmill- it can be mind numbing.  On those days I don't want to run, it can be a killer, even with the TV.  Because there's always something on, NOT!
     Thank God, for my iPod.  
     So what does this have to do with writing? What does this have to with books? What does this have to with time?  I'm going to tell you.
     I just downloaded two audiobooks to my iPod, and listen to them while I'm running.  My life has been changed forever.  And I'm doing two things at once.
      On the iPod
Current music-  Christina Perri
Current book- Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich

     Now if I could figure out a way to write my query letters, synopsis, edit, write some more, and do all the details involved with Mr. K, the minions, and reality, my life would be set.
     One step at a time I guess! :-)


  1. Wow, how I enjoy coming over to your blog! I feel you on the time and had to lol over the treadmill vs. outside. I prefer the treadmill over walking outside and my brother calls me vain for it. I just started to walk outside more last summer. Was like pulling teeth, lol. Then I was surprised at how I changed slowly towards it. Although my brother still bangs on about me and my need to look a certain way if I must walk outside. Ohhhh, I can't wear this, I can't wear that :) and so forth. But, I ramble. I'm so glad you found a way to make things work together, but I agree, more time to figure out how to fit in the rest. I will keep checking back to see if you find a recipe for encompassing all ;) Wonderful post! Thanks so much for sharing it!

  2. LOL, oh the trials of exercise. :) Encompassing all is a tall order. I amazed myself with the books on my iPod :) Thanks for stopping by Amber!!
