Should I blame the puppy for disrupting the routine around here? Red has been getting up before me, I have been journaling less regularly, and I haven’t published a book since September — when we got the puppy.
Let’s say I have not made the proper adjustments to the routine in order to maintain the publishing business. Changes in the family should not make a radical difference; after all, Leo Tolstoy wrote War and Peace while he and his wife were raising the first three of their 13 children.
And what the heck, Summer sleeps for 20 hours a day anyway. It’s what puppies do.
Nope, if the routine is disrupted I can only blame myself. But …
What’s the point of assigning blame? The important thing is to roll with the disruption and get back into the flow.
Watch for a post soon announcing completion of my next project. It’s that new-year time of year when processes get examined and refocused, and that’s just what imma gonna do.
