Should I Finish My Novel or Wash My Windows?

3 May

Horrors, what a dilemma. Here are the pros and cons:

Window Washing — Pros —  Sparkling windows, sun shining through, nice smell, satisfaction of clean house, envious neighbours, one less thing on my ‘to do’ list. Cons — wasted time that I could have used to work on my novel.

Writing Novel — Pros — Creative outlet, exhilarating high of writing, satisfaction of a finished novel, pride of accomplishment, I can finally contact my graphic artist who has promised me this last cover of five, and I haven’t spoken to her in over a year so she probably thinks I’m dead. Cons — wasted time that I could have used to wash my windows.

    Here’s a con for dirty windows: less glare, which means birds can see your dirty glass are less likely to kamikaze themselves into your windows. At least that’s what I tell myself.

      Good point, except I buy special stickers to put on my upstairs windows so they won’t fly into them.

    As important as clean windows are, I don’t think I could choose them over writing!

      I know, and I actually did a bit of writing this morning, so I guess I made my choice!

Talk to me ;)
