Cookies and Naps

by Cindy R. Williams

Right now I would rather eat a cookie, or take a nap than write. So . . . I will compromise and eat a cookie while I sit on my bed writing this on my lap top.

Do you sometimes have to come up with ways to trick yourself into writing? Maybe trick is not the right word. How about words like entice, encourage, inspire, even discipline?

Nah, the truth of it is that right now I am having to trick myself into getting this blog written.

I stopped for a few minutes to eat my cookie and have a drink with hopes that they will inspire me. No such luck. My cookie is gone, my mind is blank, and I still have a blog to write.

Okay, new plan. I will start my diet tomorrow, that takes care of the cookie breaks. I will get to bed on time, that takes care of needing a nap. But I am still in need of something to get me writing today.

Oh well, I guess I'll eat this last cookie . . . and my bed sure feels comfy and soft. I think if I just catch a few winks I will be able to write my . . .


  1. Yeah, good luck with that, silly girl!! :)

  2. I love you, Cindy! Love your post, and your wonderful sense of humor! thanks for the smiles!

  3. Now that's what I call a fine example of making the commonplace important.It appeals to be because it's the way I'm feeling -- right now. Only I don't need to blog for another couple of days.

  4. Been there, done that. Wow, thanks for the pick me up.

  5. How funny, I wrote my post today while eating a cookie.

  6. Thanks for the supportive comments. Oh, and the cookies were gooey chocolate chip with about 80 times the chocolate chips that the recipe called for. Almost enough chocolate.
