I am so ridiculously distracted today. Normally by 11:45am I have a least a couple posts done, my kitchen put back together from the morning scramble and probably a few phone calls and a couple errands completed. But today, I am in the midst of a writers crisis.
Normally, at this hour, I am shaking because I have had about 3 giant cups of coffee but today, I am still drinking the cold dregs of cuppa #1. Yet my hands quiver as if I was experienceing my normal caffeine high.
Why you ask?
Tomorrow is my first day as a columnist over on Apartment Therapy. (I loooove that world ‘columnist‘) There, unlike here, what I say, will be read by millions. So what do I say? I have the beginnings figured out and need to fill it out as a complete piece. This is so stressful!! I know I am putting undue pressure on myself, but I just can’t help it. I am crossing my fingers that sometime around 10:00pm tonight I don’t freakishly decide that it is all no good and make myself start over.
I don’t do all-nighters well.
Anyway, I have like five posts for you today, but can’t seem to make myself focus on them long enough to hit publish. I will get to them just as soon as I pull myself together and start to feel really good about this AT thing.
In the mean time, lets make a date to meet over at Apartment Therapy every Wednesday at 1:30 ET. My column is going to be called ‘The Gardenist’, it would make me feel great to see some familiar faces (I mean avatars /internet monkers. 😉 )
