I love to get lost in what I'm doing. Yesterday, I spent all day formatting my e-book. I didn't mean to. I started at 8 and figured I'd be done by noon; I've formatted before, not that hard, just a bit tedious. When I wasn't done by noon, I thought I'd be done shortly thereafter. At 3 pm, I wondered if I could get finished by 5 pm. At 11 pm, everything was complete, including uploading the cover and information (blurbs, pricing, isbn, etc) for pre-orders on Smashwords and Amazon. I almost forgot to eat. I didn't notice the comedy my daughter was watching in the other room. It would startle me every time the phone rang. It surprised when I realized I'd worked from 8 am - 11 pm without many breaks.
But I've done that before -- lost in a craft project, directing project, cleaning project, or a really good book! (The really good book is generally a graveyard shift schedule, such as 9 pm - 3 am). That lost thing helps me get something accomplished. I suppose that's being "In the Zone" or "In the Flow". I'll start calling it "Lost in a Good Way," "Lost" for short, or "LIAGW" because we all love acronyms, right?
How do you get LIAGW?
