Why the 3by3 writing method went quiet – or how I fell off the word wagon

It often comes to “Do as I say not as I do.” Well the do do to that I did do was a classic. First for a reason I will explain in a few days, I decided to start my own website. Being a fairly intelligent human I assumed I could plow my way into this new frontier.
Wrong…
I thought if you played with Photoshop, paid a couple dollars for a domain name and uploaded a file you would have a website.
Ah, no.
I have been embarrassed and humiliated by my lack of understanding this foreign language called HTML,(even when there is a program to translate it), my lack of understanding the difference between a DNS, web host, and about fifteen other crazy initials that make no sense to me.
What did I do? I got DISTRACTED. I squandered my morning writing hour (and even more in the night), trying to design and upload a website when I didn’t have to.
THEN to make matters worse I transferred my failure at learning web design in a mere week to failure in EVERYTHING WRITTEN.
It wasn’t until a Sunday night critique group told me not could I create a coherent sentence and elicit a chuckle and a laugh from my writing.
Here I was blogging about keeping the faith, mid-book blues and not to be distracted and I did it myself.
The moral of the story is – be berry, berry careful. It could happen to you!
Get some friends and cry on their shoulder and have them tell you that you’re a good writer.
