Personal Reflection

I Have No Motivation To Do Anything

I don’t feel all that motivated right now. I’m in a bit of a slump.

Obviously, there are highs and lows with just about everything in life. I’ve been trying to climb back up since the accident.

It was like my world got rocked upside down. I’ve sort of reverted back to old ways, which isn’t a bad thing in and of itself.

I’m also in a weird transitional time in my life. But I’m ready to move forward and look ahead.

Lately, I’ve been making more time for myself. I spent many hours thinking. Maybe it’s time to act now.

I’m not sure how to describe my current state. I’m better physically, but I’m also more present mentally than I have been in the past. I like to believe that’s a good sign.

In spite of everything, I’m excited to see for what’s next.

I can’t wait to read and review the books on my to be read shelf.

I’m dancing, stretching, and exercising better.

I hope to transcribe a ton of blog posts.

I will send my work into the world, regardless of how many rejections I get.

Baseball is in full swing. Beware all my bad jokes or puns.

By the end of 2018, I don’t want to look back and think it’s the year I got hit by a car. I want to be able to say I accomplished my goals. I refuse to be defined by what happened to me.


Get More Exercise While Multitasking

Read while squatting.

Write while standing.

Talk while skipping.

Listen while stretching.

Or just get more exercise by actually exercising, Herminia, and not trying to cut corners. Just a suggestion.

Can you tell I’m really, really lazy?

What Summer Is Really Like

Happy first day of summer.

Yeah right. More like:

Happy needing to exercise yet never wanting to.

Happy telling yourself every day you’ll spend more time blogging.

Happy trying to read until your tears and sweat fall onto the pages.

Happy hibernating in your own home because it’s too hot to leave the house.

Happy writing an atrocious amount of words even though you don’t have people to see or places to be.


30 Questions To Ask Yourself During NaNoWriMo-Day 15

Congratulate yourself for coming this far. How does it feel to know you’re half-way through NaNoWriMo? Pat yourself on the back—you’re getting there!

As always the question of the day follows.

Question #15

Have you neglected the rest of your life?

I get it. You’re busy writing a novel. This, however, does not mean you have the freedom to ignore every person, thing, and aspect in your life.

If you have a pressing obligation you’ve overlooked for the past fifteen days, maybe now’s the time to take care of it.

Since we’re half-way through, it’s also a great time to reconsider what is important to you right now. Writing is a no-brainer but what about exercising, reading, uh…sleeping?

Schedule some time in to sort out your priorities.

Slow down and take it easy for today, will ya?

Tomorrow’s question: do your characters drive your plot?
