Get Busy Already!

Crayons scattered on white paperThe procrastination game has been strong today. I have indulged in it instead of fighting it and getting things done. On one hand, that’s not a problem unless it becomes a habit. On the other hand, it’s a consistent habit and I need to break it.

I did pretty good with things on the writing front this week. Here’s a round-up of my creative life this week.

  • Ultimate Blog Challenge: This is day 7. When I post this, I will have officially made it a full week.
  • RealmWalker: I have added a chapter and a half and 5,042 words this week.
  • #100DaysProject: I decided writing every day would be my project. That seems good since I’m wanting to finish RealmWalker this month and I have another novel (young adult along the lines of Nancy Drew) that needs to be finished, too. It started Tuesday so this is just day 5 and so far I’m 5 for 5.
  • Greeting cards: Yes, I make greeting cards. I got started when I went to a stamping group about six months ago. I love it! Initially, I didn’t want to get involved in anything else since I have so much going anyway, but I was given a LOT of stamps and ink pads, so I thought I’d look into it. The group gets together the first Thursday of the month at the scrapbooking store downtown. I love it.
  • Yarn stuff: At the beginning of the week, I was between projects. I like to have something going that I can do while I watch TV. I also like to have something at hand that I can do while I think about what’s next in what I’m writing. For TV-watching, it can be a complicated pattern. For thinking-while-writing, it has to be pretty mindless, otherwise, I’m thinking about the pattern and not the writing. Anyway, I started a new shawl yesterday. It was far too complicated. I’ll still finish it, but I think I’m going to have to crochet along with the videos provided. So I started another shawl this morning. This one is easy and works up pretty fast. It’s the perfect thinking-while-writing project.

That sums up my week. How was yours?

I’m going to post this and get to work on RealmWalker, even if it is late. (With that nap I took this afternoon/evening, I should be good for a while.)

See? I even used this blog post as a procrastination tool. Get busy already, Jen!

Happy creating.

  1. It sounds to me like you have been quite busy already! What I have focused on this week is planning my next offering. Next weekend, I am taking a class and will plan my next month of blog posts, tweets, newsletters and ads. So I better have something solid to offer. Fleshing it out is the plan for next week.

    1. That’s something I’m working on. Planning my content for this blog, videos, and the podcast. I tend to fly by the seat of my pants more often than not, but I’m trying to be more of a planner. I do for other things in my life, so why the resistance to this? Good question.

    1. It’s kind of silly how easy it is to give in to procrastination, isn’t it? I’m about to get my post up a few hours “early” for a change. lol
