I seem to have a big problem with procrastination.
Actually, perhaps I ONLY have a problem with success, which manifests itself in the form of procrastination… or maybe I’m just lazy…? And wishy-washy.
Case in point–THIS BLOG! I started it about a year or so ago, and have done virtually nothing with it. True, I wasn’t quite ready to do a blog, but seeing Deneen and Mike launch their blogs spurred me into action. I have this problem with competition/proving myself, etc.
My list of “problems” keeps growing; procrastination, success, wishy-washiness, competition/proving myself, (is that one or two problems? yeah probably two). Oh, and I tend to get off-track writing parenthetically.
So, where was I? Oh yes, this blog. I started it, then didn’t know what I wanted to do with it. I came up with what I thought was a clever title, wrote my bio, etc., spiffed the whole thing up a bit, then abandoned it after only a couple postings. I even wrote a few other entries, but didn’t ever post them! What’s up with that? Did NaNoWriMo last year derail me? Honestly, I don’t even know all the reasons I let this blog fall by the wayside, I just know that I did.
I need to “build my platform,” as the writing books say, and do other SERIOUS things to get myself established as a “real writer,” so I can get an AGENT and a PUBLISHER! I’m ready to FINALLY move myself forward in this process… whatever that may entail. This revived blog is one of my first steps into that great beyond.
Wish me luck!
