It seems to be so much easier to talk about what I’m going to write than it is to actually write!
Don’t get me wrong, I do have some successes. For example, last Tuesday scored me some points in my own mind. In addition to all my everyday stuff, I wrote 250 words on one project and accomplished some serious outlining on another. It just seems that days like this are few and far between. I don’t think that I am very disciplined.
Wednesday and Thursday? I accomplished very little in the area of writing. I helped Mother with her computer, a very worthwhile thing to do. It just isn’t WRITING. I fixed some of the problems with my computer, which does help me write. It was worth doing, it just isn’t WRITING! I installed software updates. I just didn’t WRITE.
On the other hand, a friend trusted me to critique his novel. I haven’t gotten very far reading it in the “first pass,” but I’m enjoying it. I have noticed more things that have been done well then things that need reconsideration and revising.
Today seems to be another day that I’m looking for excuses. I am moving slowly. I think part of that is that I’m not breathing well. I also have sciatic pain down one leg. Both of these things will impact my word output.
But, I HAVE written 250 words on one of my projects so far. Maybe I’m not the worst writer on the planet when it comes to procrastination after all!
