So I love to write. I’ve been doing so since elementary. Telling a story through some made up character’s point of view excites me because my life is usually nothing like the characters I’m writing about. Sure I may add in little quirks like the way they react to something or someone just as I would but their outside environment is much different from mine. As of lately, writing has been on my mind for the most part of the day yet it has been hard getting pen to paper and even getting fingertips to keyboard. I have to do better than this. I CAN do better than this.
Reading this post probably has you wondering what exactly is it I’m talking about or what I have planned but shhhh, it’s a secret. Have no fear. This blog will be the first to know once my plan comes together. Now on to my motivation running on E.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been like this. I envy the people who get started on a project as soon as the idea hits them. If procrastinating was a company I’d be the owner and operator. How can I get over this?
NOTE TO SELF/MINI PROJECT: Write a short story or even a journal entry everyday.
Cool. This may work. The funny part on the other side of the entire writer’s block process is when I do have a story to write about, there is no breaking my concentration. There can be someone who opens the door to check on me or someone staring at me from across the coffee shop and I won’t acknowledge the person. I’ll know they’re there obviously but there is a clear disconnect between me and the person trying to get my attention. Of course I don’t stay on E for long. I simply overstay my trip to the gas station.
That’s one way of looking at it.
