How To Cure Email Stalker Issues
Okay. So since I pressed send I've turned email stalker. One minute I was sane, happy go lucky Jude. The next I'm clicking 'check for new email' like a woman possessed. Medusa emerging when I see a new mail flash that turns out to be a circular about Cat Food (we once had kitties, I've forgotten to unsubscribe).
Anyhoo. Have finally decided it must stop. So here's how to avoid it.
Force feed yourself three chocolate biscuits with every click (sooner or later the conscience will kick in). Or your belly will be touching the keys quicker than your fingers.
Make yourself reread the chapter you were at in the book you are reading if you check your email again. This one gets me ratty because I love to read on...so consider it paperback penance for having no patience.
Both of the above at the same time. E.g. reread earlier chapters whilst eating lots of biscuits. Eventually you will be sick of the book. And be sick on the living room rug. No more stalking, problem solved.
P.S. I should add that I have no patience. I was the woman who had IVF treatment and had done double figures pregnancy kits before the 'official time to test date' came. Nuff said. Must CHILL. And when will someone invent submission predictor test kits please?
