Well, It's a New Year and this is officially my 1st blog. Slacker, you say?
Well, yes. Yes, I have been. Not only here, on the blog, but in my personal writing as well. I have a few excuses why--retrograde (which, I just found out about. BTW--we're out of it today), a new puppy, can't concentrate, new no-sugar eating plan, work, and it's too damn cold to think.
We can all think of excuses why we don't do something, or anything, for that matter. Funny thing is I haven't made one excuse for my new eating plan (oh and in 1 week - 3lbs, 2" - yay me), nor have I made excuses about going to the gym.
So why is it so easy to stop writing, when this is supposed to be my passion?
That I don't have an answer for, only more excuses. Because that's really what it comes down to. Honestly, I'm surprised I'm writing this, but look at me go, one goal met. I have a few days off and I've promised myself I'm going to write--come hell or high water (or low temperatures).
I made a promise to myself that I would send out a book by Nationals, and I'm totally off track for that. Why? More excuses, of course. Am I built to do this business? Yes. Am I good enough? Well, I think so. Can I give up family time to write? Humm, that one's a hard one. How do writers work and write? Don't know, but I've done it before, I can do it again.
The questions and self fulfilling excuses are endless. But, in the spirit of it being a new year, I really want to keep all the promises I've made to myself. I don't seem to have a problem keeping them to other people, so...
Hummm, why is it so easy to let the things for ourselves go so easily?
What are your excuses and how did you tackle them?
I need to hear it--anything to stop the procrastination and excuses.
Have a great day with no excuses! Just do it! I'm going to try :-)
