On Saturday I spent the day in my office at the university, because I have a lot of work to get done in the next few weeks, and I have a hard time staying focused and on-task when I’m taking care of Oscar.
In the past I might have spent as much as half the time doing nothing but reading forums, answering emails, paging through a magazine, taking breaks every half hour, etc.
However, since having Oscar I’ve come to appreciate how precious my time really is. As I drove to my office I switched off the radio and began thinking about a writing project that I’ve been in the middle of for a long time. I stayed in that mindset as I walked into my office and switched on the computer. I spent the next three hours writing nonstop. I rarely get “in the zone” like this, and when I do, it’s heaven.
If I spent more time writing and less time dreading it, I’d be a much happier person.
For more perfect moments, visit Lori.

That sounds awesome! I love it when I can get in the zone for something I’m passionate about!
I thoroughly enjoy the times I am “in the zone,” especially in the writing zone! Would you send some of that magic my way?
I’m happy for you!
And I loved your last line (before the sentence with my name in it, lol).
Glad you got to spend some time in the zone. I want you to write more too because I seem to remember reading a story excerpt that I thoroughly enjoyed and I’d like to read more.
I am visiting from Lori’s Perfect Moment Monday.
I’m a writer too and LOVE it when I get in the zone. I’m smiling just thinking of your perfect moment!
Thanks for sharing your Perfect Moment!

Hi 🙂 thanks for stopping by my blog. I love yours!!
I love that you were enjoying your writing on Sat. I love when I’m in a zone, even if it means I get the laundry done, and folded and I can still keep one eye on the twins and the Law&Order Rerun that’s on. LOL
your perfect moment was wonderful to read. 🙂
