Procrastination station

This is me.  I’m procrastinating so much. I have a lot of semi-legit excuses. But a big one is going to be running out in about 2 weeks.

I’m actually glad for that because well, I’d really like to write again but it seems like now, when I do have the time, I’d rather do something like relax and watch a TV show since my DVR is getting backed up because I’m too busy to watch TV. I think I’ve developed bad habits since undertaking my semi-legit excuses (husband out of the country for 6 months, kids and their activities, house, labor intensive graphic design class-yanno, that kind of stuff) where I just give in and do whatever else it is I’m thinking about because my time is so limited right now.

I’ve never understood how people can just write for 2 hours a day. I get it now. Sometimes life just demands that you write for those 2 hours and those 2 hours only whether you want to or not because it’s not getting done any other way. And they become much more productive.

I think I get it.

Now I must get to disciplining myself to be strict about how I write. That’ll be interesting. Every time I do sit down to write, I look around and see the dishes aren’t done or the house is a wreck and all this work has to get done sometime and I’ll get more done if I just do it now so I can write after and so on and so on and it all just amounts to a bunch of not writing.

So scheduling my time to write seems like a good idea to me. I just need to figure out what time I have – and that isn’t easy either.
