Beware of Time Goblins!!!!!

Once again I find myself scratching my head and asking the same question: OMG HOW IS IT ALREADY FRIDAY?????

And while we're on the subject: HOW IS IT MID OCTOBER---OF 2010????????

I mean, I know I've been busy, but seriously, WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE??????????

And really, there's only one possible answer. Clearly my CP, the lovely and talented Sarah Wylie, is right. Time Goblins are real!

They creep in when we aren't looking and gobble up all our time!!!!

And they must be stopped.

So I declare war, Time Goblins--WAR!!!!

I'm on to you now. I'll be ready for you the next time you try to sneak in and steal my week. Oh yes Time Goblins! You have met your match in me. I shall find a way to defeat you.

Who wants to join in the fight? Feel free to enlist in the T.G.W.B.D.A.* in the comments.**

**This rambling and possibly ridiculous post has been brought to you by a very overworked, exhausted, and possibly dangerously troubled mind.

    The year 2010 feels as mythological as the time goblins. Ugh.

  2. Ha ha ha ha ha! I am at your service, #1. There's nothing better than following a dangerously troubled mind into battle! ;-)

  3. Aaack, I know what you mean!!! I totally believe in those wretched Time Goblins. I'm prepared to do what I must to help protect our writing community from their nefarious schemes!

  4. Dude, I so know how you feel. But September was the slowest, longest month on the planet. I think I'm finally ready to forge forward! Watch out time goblins! *battle cry!

  5. Oh, I'm SO in the battle! Let's conquer those goblins! I could definitely use more time.

  6. I am so joining up with T.G.W.B.D.A! I need a group to help me conquer my Time Goblins. Spinning them over my head and throwing them out of my garden just isn't working for some reason.

    Lovely post, Shannon!
    (p.s. Award for you on my blog)

  7. I'm in! If we band together our dangerously troubled overworked minds, we shall defeat the Time Goblins! RAAAAAH!

  8. ACK! The picture has me freaked. I'm going to have to defend against Time Goblins, because I will lose it if I see them. For reals.

  9. I hate to break this to you but as you get older...time moves faster. Yes, it's actually a scientific fact. Ask my momma.

    Ok, I made it up but it feels right. But I want to enlist anyway.lol

  10. Time Goblins? LOL

    I hope they don't actually look like that. I don't want to know those things are surrounding us, gobbling up our minutes and hours...

  11. Oh, I am sooo ready to enlist! I won't even have any time to work on my WiP this weekend (damn day-job screwing things up), and I have no idea how it's Friday already.

    Crazy!

  12. First, we need a shorter name. I vote for The Messenger Army. Yes, we will confuse the enemy with our vagueness - are you invading or just delivering a package?

    Also: I LOVE the goblin pix!

  13. Take THAT time goblins! Yah! Yah!

    iggi and gabi reporting for duty. We are specialists-in-training and our goal is destroying one of time goblin's vicious cousins: the procrastinatosaur.

  14. Reporting for duty! Just tell me where to shoot. Love the goblin pic.

    Seriously, I know exactly what you mean. My boys are growing up so fast! And I wanted to be so much further in my story than I am. And I'm doing rewrites of another story that I really want to hurry up and finish so I query. So much to do, so little time to do it!

  15. Heeheehee. Those goblins have definitely been making trouble at my house. Or could it be the four children and the CARPOOL GOBLINS (close cousins of the TGs) living in my Sequoia. Drat them all! Good luck with your weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh no, they're at your house too? Not good.

    I'm with you - I don't know where this month has gone. Those pesky Time Goblins have to be stopped!

  17. I'm enlisting!!! I have a terrible case of wasted time on my hands. i hate when I only read an hour or two for writing. How can that be when it's all I ever think about?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm enlisting too. If we win, do we get our time back? Or is it gone forever…

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm a pacifist so maybe I can be sent on a diplomatic mission to the Goblin Kingdom to try reconciliation? And if I get kidnapped and held for ransom y'all come and get me right!?!?!

    :-)
    Please take care!

  20. I have met the time goblin. His name is internet.

    I'll join your army, but I'm not giving up the internet! Is that a conflict of interest?

  25. Ready for battle, and relieved somebody else has noticed what they're doing to us all! That pic has to be exactly what they look like.

  26. The Time Goblins must be stopped, no matter the cost. Though I'm more of a dragon slayer than a goblin hunter, my sword is yours!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Lol! I`d join but I`m not sure how useful I`d be since I`m a klutz and would most likely end up either hurting myself or somebody on our side.

  28. hi miss shannon! yikes! thats a pretty scary picture. i didnt ever see a time goblin before and i hope i dont ever get him at our house. im thinking that time goblin mostly attacks more older people cause for me stuff doesnt get here fast enough and lots of times i wish time could just go more fast. like right now i been doing a count down to my birthday and its taking forever to get here. im gonna join up with your army so i could be ready to fight that ugly goblin when i get more older. i could learn from you more old ones. for now im gonna be just a trainee soldier. :) that was a fun post.
    ...hugs from lenny
