I’m not going to bore you with the mountains of work in front of me, but I AM going to complain that there are just not enough hours in the day to complete it all. And it seems the more work there is to do, the more I’d rather blow it off and play video games.
I bought a new planner today. I figure if I write “WRITE 10am” on August 13th, I’ll actually write at 10am on August 13th instead of checking Facebook or my email. Do you think that will work? Probably not, but I’m going to try it anyway. Of course, I haven’t written anything in there yet. It’s on my to-do list.
I think I’m just overwhelmed by my own self-imposed deadlines. Among other things, I was going to have my new manuscript rewrites completed in August. Well, it’s August 12th…no, wait…August 13th, and I have the first two chapters finished. It’s a 30-chapter book. Ugh.
You may think I’m procrastinating by writing this blog, but posting a blog is actually on my to-do list for today. So there! According to my time-zone, I still have 43 minutes to complete this blog.
Give me some help here. How do you un-procrastinate yourself??
