I want to say I’ve not posted here in a while because I’ve been writing, but that’s not 100% true. I mean, I have been writing, just not the whole time. I want to say it’s because my dad had a stroke, but that’s not 100% true either. He did have one, but that’s not the big reason.
To be honest with you folks, I’ve not been posting on my blog or writing like I should because I’m a procrastinator. Seriously, if there was an award for procrastination, I’d tell folks I was gonna send someone to pick it up for me, and then forget because something online caught my attention.
However, I think I may have it licked. I picked up a fan, somehow, who’s a complete stranger on Twitter, and she’s asked to see the rough draft of the sequel to my first novel. She’s promised to ask me every four days for a chapter update if I’ve not shared it with her.
What about the love of my life? She still inspires me and gets to read my work before anyone else, but her love for me makes her challenge me to do at least 1,000 words per day.
There we have it: Two challenges to get the procrastination kicked. If this doesn’t do it, I’m clearly not cut out to be a writer.
