It is really easy to put things off. I am the Queen of Procrastination. It isn’t that I don’t want to do certain things, but the phrases “I am going to start this soon” or “I will get on that tomorrow”, become easier to say. And tomorrow turns into the next day and so on.
I have been doing a lot of thinking lately about my writing. I am kicking myself for wasted days and being lazy. I’m not as prolific as I used to be. I’m not happy with that, so it is time for a REAL change.
I’m not the type of person to write every day. Some writers are. Even during NaNoWriMo there are days I don’t write. Either because life is simply too hectic that day, or I need to give my brain a little bit of recharge time. (Although I only do that if I am at least a day or two ahead of schedule.)
While I am not a person to write every day, all week, all year, I know I can write some of the week. So I am making myself a schedule of sorts.
I am vowing to write four days a week. If more, bonus! But unless life takes some major curve ball, I know I can write (or edit) even a page or two that much during the week. I have no real excuse right now not to do that.
I have last year’s Nano to work on, plus a new project I have been dying to get at. So I have a great starting point for my work.
Instead of just thinking about writing, I need to get off my ass and start DOING.
Have you made any new changes or goals for your writing? If so, what have you decided to do?
