A Surefire Way To Keep Your House Clean

I am in the middle of writing my third Maury C. Moose book and I am starting to learn that when the writing is at its hardest, I turn into Mary Poppins.

I will grab my notebook and be ready to head to the library to write, when I’ll stop and think, “I better clean the house first.” Then I will vacuum, dust and do everything short of fly around with an umbrella.

Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with having a clean house. But I am starting to realize that my subconscious is doing anything it can come up with to protect me from suffering through a tough day of writing.

I have cleaned twice in the last week when I should have been writing.

So, here is my advice to you today: if you are having a hard time keeping your house clean, forget about buying a new Swiffer, just start writing a book.
