Sometimes I like to uses images to spark my creativity--or to help satisfy my need to get artsy without ever pulling out the paint.

What I'd rather be doing...

So if you've been listening to the Freelance Radio podcast, you'll know that we recently did a show about our freelance dilemmas. Mainly, mine.

One of the panelists challenged me to work on magazine queries 15 minutes a day, Monday thru Thursday. Since I couldn't do much because of December's hustle and bustle, he decided to re-issue the challenge in January.

And here we are.

It's Monday. Still Monday. I've done a ton of things today including wrapping up a huge project for one of my best clients, and working on another project for another fab client. I've made appointments, ran errands. I want to rest. Vege. Hit the gym. Cook. Anything but write.

But here I am, and I'm gonna get to work on it.
