Stuff – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS



I know I haven’t been posting much on here lately except for prompts. I’ve had a lot of stuff going on lately that’s been keeping me busy: work-related stuff, family stuff, etc. And I’ve kinda gotten caught up taking care of some writing job requests from Fiverr lately, too, so that’s been taking up some of my writing time. I haven’t even gotten a chance to work on my WIP novel, either, which I’d hoped to get around to.  My boyfriend, also, has been dealing with a lot of personal stuff, so we’ve not really seen much of each other lately. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers, if you will.

So, that’s some of the stuff that’s been going on that’s kept me from posting much on here. And this is also part of the Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt:


The art of Procrastination


Procrastination. Almost worse than writer’s block for a writer. At least with writer’s block, we are making an effort at trying to get some writing done. With procrastination, on the other hand, we know we should be writing, but we put it off, telling ourselves we’ll do it later and make excuses to ourselves for it.

For example, I’d intended to try to get some writing done on my book this weekend. Yesterday, I spent most of the day over at my mother’s instead, helping her with some things. Then by the time I got home, I was exhausted and didn’t feel mentally up to writing. Ok, that’s a fair excuse, right? But what’s my excuse for today, where I’ve pretty much just been watching videos on the computer, telling myself “just one more episode” and playing around on here? There really is none except being lazy. And now it’s almost dinner time and I’ve not gotten anything written. Tsk tsk.

Perhaps tomorrow I’ll get around to finally setting that daily word count goal I’d intended to start and finally get some writing done after work.
Procrastination at its best.
