I am SICK and TIRED of procrastination!
IT’S DRIVING ME NUTS! Tomorrow tomorrow later not now wait let me watch this do that it’ll just be a second- FOR REALITY’S SAKE MAKE IT STOP!
No, I have not gone crazy, although some may argue that it’s not a question of “going” but of “long gone”, but that’s beside the point. I am a writer, and I like writing fiction. My dream and goal is to become a professional author, but the monster that plagues me now is procrastination. Well, not “now” specifically, because that suggests that it just started to plague me. It’s more like – procrastination has been hounding after me SINCE I WAS BORN.
I have no idea when it actually started so we’ll just choose “SINCE I WAS BORN” since that is so much more dramatic.
Here are a few examples. I’m a fan-fiction writer, and three or so years ago, having come across fatal problems in all of my works, I decided drastic change was needed for my writings to work. Basically, that involved rewriting. I realized this and BAM just like that, disappeared from writing altogether for one and a half years.
I’d blame school, but the real perpetrator was laziness and her twin, procrastination. Need another example? I “started” this blog in January of 2012! It’s September 2012 and I’ve JUST published my first post! I’d blame the “theme” and the “background”, but we all know really “who dun it.” Also, on a more day to day basis! I’ve been trying to get into a regulated, 300 words a day writing system for ages, but I never have! PROCRASTINATION PROCRASTINATION PROCRASTINATION.
This blog, this post, is a response to that procrastination. I’m done with “later”, and the last time I”m using “tomorrow” as an excuse was yesterday, since starting today, everything gets done NOW.
And yes, I do realize that made close to no sense.
This blog is my solution to procrastination. It’s an experiment. I’ll post my goals on here as well as my punishments so that I hold by them. So that I don’t STOP like I have before. This doesn’t apply just to writing, of course, it applies to other things. Exercise, dieting, playing, painting, school, etc etc.
A blog is a social medium; basically, I’m asking you to join me. If you have never procrastinated before in your life – GIVE ME YOUR SECRETS! If you have, you know what I’m talking about. Join me! Take the pledge. Subscribe to this blog and get daily reminders. I don’t know if doing this will make things too “regulated” or uncreative or stifle things. All I know is that, procrastination and never actually accomplishing anything is no fun at all.
