I know I need to finish the story but I just don’t waaaaaaannaaa.
You guys, I have been procrastinating on the next part of the story for almost a month. Aaaaaaaaaagggghhhh.
To be fair, I did a couple reviews and wrote epitaph poetry. None of those things furthered the plot but you know, I kinda meditated on it and that counts.
This always happens in every project I’ve ever done. I’m really good at starting it but then I get tired and hit a slump halfway through. Blargh.
But I’m going to do it.
I feel like if I write enough lists that are filled with nothing then maybe I’ll finally get tired of listening to myself and then I’ll have no other choice but to finish the story.
Valentine’s day is coming up. I used to love Valentine’s Day when I was a kid. I still do in many ways but this year not so much. Anyway, I think I loved it because Mom turned it into a special day. She’d buy my sister and I a little stuffy or lip balm or our favourite chocolate. It wasn’t big but she always made me feel loved. I’m only moderately dreading it this year as a single but my action plan is to stay as busy as possible so I don’t have time to think too hard about it. The good news is I have two get-togethers with friends that Friday and I’m looking forward to both. I also bought this huge canvas on sale at JYSK over the Christmas holidays. Before I had plans, I was saving that canvas for Valentines Day. But now I get to save it as a project over Reading Week.
I don’t know why I’m writing this as a list. I tried to switch it into paragraph form but the button isnt working. So I’m just rolling with it now.
Guess we’re stuck with a list.
Oh man you guys, if I had a dollar for every time I got distracted I could buy a full set of lashes and hair extensions tomorrow. And then replace them the next day.
Also, does anyone else feel like 2020 is the year of humility? ‘Cuz I’m getting humbled all over the place. I mean, it’s good because I can grow and get better but it’s certainly no fun at the time.
I think I’m just going to like push through it this week and next and say that by Sunday, February 23 I WILL FINISH THE STORY OF MYRTLE/ESTHER.
There. I said it.
Now I just need to do it.
The good news is I wrote something today and that is a good thing. The quality wasn’t the best and it’s just a streamline of thoughts but I wrote something. And that’s half the battle.
