Sheesh, why do I even have a blog? Haven’t been here in ages, my apologies to *all* my fans – ha! So, time for an update:
Lots of things going on. I counted, a week or so ago, about 10 things I’m stressed over. Just 10. Not a huge number, right? But, I’m happy to report, several of those things just dropped off The List. Yay! Of course, it helps that I can’t quite remember all of them in the first place….
I’ve decided to go for it, to write fulltime. And, of course, hopefully earn a living! Guess I’m pushing off that nervous breakdown for a bit longer. Oh, well.
Suppose I should have written this little piece a couple weeks ago, because I actually started on June 1. Seemed like a good date, first of the month and all; but, naturally, life is getting in the way just a tad. First, there were the last couple days of school for my youngest; then medical tests for my husband; then a few crises with family members – well, truthfully, some of them have pretty continuous crises…but I digress.
And, well, that’s part of my problem too – digression. Or, as it’s better known, procrastination.
On the other hand, perhaps some of my writer friends can enlighten me:
Is it REALLY procrastination, or don’t you have to “feel” something first? I mean, there’s focus, which we all need regardless of occupation, but there has to be some movement of the creative spirit before we can begin. Or, I supposed, one must simply type until that spirit moves, yes? I think my brain must be getting fuzzy again…or, well, it’s that darn procrastination!
What do you think?
