Thanks OI and Meriamne!

I will try to "just do it"

But Meri-- I think your timer idea sounds great... once you figure out how to set the timer, let me know!

Man, that looks like my list!!

So very familiar.  Sigh.

I don't have the secret, but I do have a tip.  I use one of those wind-up kitchen timers, which I set each time I am about to start a task.  So if I have to write for one hour, I am not allowed to stop until the timer goes off.  If one hour is all I have alotted myself, then I HAVE to stop when my time's up.  That gives incentive to write as much as I can during the allotted time.  You get the idea.  Oh, and sorry for talking about myself so much.  :)

I still haven't figured out how to sit down and start the timer.  LOL.  Maybe I need an alarm for starting the timer??
