Procrastination At Its Peak

I’ve been putting off a blog article I’m supposed to write for three weeks. I’m not usually this bad. It has to be something in the air. What else could it possibly be?

My calendar is full of arrows because I keep postponing. Taking a month to write one quick post is a new record for me.

The topic isn’t the problem. My discipline, or lack thereof, is.

Is it safe to blame this cursed education system? There are only so many hours in the day. And one-third of it is spent at school.

Writing

Day 27—NaNoWriMo: Are you a real writer?

I realize that many of you are probably tired for obvious reasons. So I promise to give you a straightforward question today.

Are you a real writer?Trick question; obviously, you are. If you weren’t a writer you wouldn’t be attempting to write a novel in a month, would you? Silly me. My brain must be malfunctioning from lack of sleep, food, water, air, and all of life’s essential needs. Like this post if you can relate. Like this post even if you can’t relate.

And since I consider myself a writer, I’ll be cheering every other aspiring novelist on. I’ll clap for you at the finish line and we can throw a party on November 30th regardless of your word count. You tried. 7 billion other people didn’t.

So party away with whatever you accomplished this month, okay? Reward yourself. You’re different than everyone else because you are a writer, but you’re still human, so don’t forget to catch up on some sleep in December. Sounds like a good plan, no?

Take care because Christmas will soon be here.
