SpiderMines and HeartCells
Over the years I've developed a writing process that works for me. I sit at my computer with a cup of coffee and check my email, Facebook, and Pinterest. Then I turn on my writing playlist which is mostly jazz because it provides light background noise, and I play a game of Hearts, Spider Solitaire, threeish games of Minesweeper, and one game of FreeCell. I don't deviate from the order of these games or my morning is screwed. Then, with a sigh, I pull up my document and stare at it until it tells me what to do.
I don't dare figure out how much time I waste with this routine because those games get my head where it needs to be so I can write. I figure it's time well spent. Gotta run, time for Hearts!
