One Disadvantage on Being in the Zone When Writing.

The world could fall apart and you wouldn’t notice. 

Come to think of it, if the world falls apart it wouldn’t help if I noticed. 

Yesterday, with the Coon Hound adolescent pup sleeping under my feet, peaceful and sweet as a new born babe, I left my chair and walked into the living room.

Surprise! A hurricane had hit.

Well, it looked like it. Behind my back Lafayette, the pup, had been up to some dirty deeds.. He had taken a plant off the media shelf, ripped it to shreds, bits of green leaves all over the room, and the dirt from the pot spread over the carpeting as though he had just plowed a field.

We wouldn’t give up the zone though would we?

(Or the pup.)

The vacuum cleaner fixed the mess.

Writing messes aren’t that easy to fix. I’ve come to the conclusion that editors have a different eye (interesting image) that writers do, or is it as do writers?
