I haven’t told you guys much about my NaNoWriMo manuscript, because it’s been collecting proverbial dust. Can Microsoft Word docs collect dust? Would it be a dustbyte? (You know, like a terabyte, or some other kinda byte…right?)
(Oh man, the jokes just get worse people. That’s why I generally write things that make people cry or creep them out.)
I figured it was about time for me to bring it up again. I can’t go on pretending like it didn’t happen. Or that I forget about it. That’s the thing about procrastination, you do other things, EXCEPT for the thing that you really want/should to do. Instead you’re doing the other things. Maybe the reluctance is out of fear, confusion, anxiety or just plain orneriness. While you’re doing those other things that you’ve decided have “priority” like cleaning out the fridge or watching that marathon of The Big Bang Theory…you’re still thinking about the thing that you’re avoiding. At least that’s how it works with my treacherous brain. Those of you have that ability to just totally push it out of your mind, I salute you. ::tips hat:: And I ask that you teach me your ways.
Please? I’ve got wine. And cookies. (Procrastinators love wine and cookies.)
You know how you do something silly? And you record it and you put it on YouTube? And then you’re all like, “Whatever, YOLO.” And then you immediately think, “Oh hell, I’m glad I only thought YOLO and didn’t say it out loud.” And then you say it to your boyfriend while making stupid hand gestures, because it gets on his nerves and YOLO?
Asking for a friend.
Here’s my latest video where I talk about this manuscript. I think I’m over procrastinating now. Plus I have a dandy new shirt.
Is there something that you’ve been putting off for a while that you’re taking on in this new year? Let me know in the comments!
