Over the years one of the skills I’ve become adept at is procrastination.
Especially when it comes to my writing. During the past week two people asked me if I’ve finished the second or third manuscripts in the Boone’s Creek series.
I think I must have given them one of those “deer in the headlights” looks.
This year I promised myself I would not make any type resolution. Every year I set out to finish several projects I’ve started….. and I swear I don’t know where the time goes. Two of those manuscripts are in boxes under my desk.
One night, in the middle of the night when one of those nefarious characters caught my attention, I knew I had to somehow get back on schedule.
Now it’s the end of January, and by the time I’ve posted this it will be February.
Several months ago at my husband’s suggestion I blocked off an entire day, just for him. So far, it’s working.
When I looked at my calendar, I came up with so many excuses why I couldn’t work on my manuscripts. However, writing is as important to me as eating (except chocolate).
I’ve decided to block off time on my already stretched calendar for my writing projects. Just telling myself I’m going to do it has made me feel better.
I realize what a blessing this new group is……Insecure Writers Support Group! Who better understands a writer, than another writer?
I can’t wait to know many of you. I’m so happy to have your encouragement and support. I will do my best to encourage each of you who get in touch with me.
