Monday, Monday!

Well, I can't say that I'm happy it's Monday. Of all the days in the week Monday has got to be the worst. Monday's are the start of the work week. Kids are back to school. Sports and other extra-curricular activities resume their nightly rituals. And to top it all off, you've gotten nothing done on the weekend. You are left with a messy house, laundry and dinner to make when you get home from work.

I try not to do any writing on Monday's. Not only because I have a lack of knowledge and couldn't spell a word if my life depended on it (right now I am spell checking this post as I type) but because I have no creative juices left. I've tried to write on Monday's and the outcome is disastrous, horrible, unreadable garbage!

So most Monday's I dedicate to the three R's. Research, re-reading, and revising whatever I wrote that week. This in itself is a daunting task. Especially if you've had a bad writing week, and I've had many of those.
But in the words of Isaac Bashevis Singer "The wastebasket is a writers bestfriend." And mine is well used.

I've added a link to one of my favourite songs. If you're having a crappy Monday, I hope this will cheer you up!!
