Every other key on the keyboard is working just fine. The L, however, requires a good hard shove, so every time I type an L word I have to back up and push down on the L. Sometimes it’s the A on my keyboard. Sometimes it’s the F. Sometimes all keys fire at normal – even stellar – speeds. If I could just predict which character (fictional and keyboardial) is going to be the troublesome one on a given night, before I sit down to start pounding out the words, I could plan ahead, be prepared for it, and skip the “Oh, come ON” frustration when it catches me by surprise.
My projects are full of unexpected holes ately. Reluctant characters (fictional), sticky keys, a mysterious dropped stitch that left a hole in the ankle seam of the footie I’m knitting. Let’s not even broach the topic of my holey memory…remember last week when I forgot to blog until Inez asked me, at nearly midnight, “Did you forget to blog?” Gah.
Maybe it’s the summer wave, and I’ll just keep on riding it through til fall. Summer for me means a complete inability to focus (as I replied to Haven last week). Projects that I could whip through in a few days are actually taking a few weeks. I blame the sunshine. Are the rest of you getting anything done?
