2014: The End of Procrastination (sort of)

Happy New Year to all that follow me and those who don’t. It’s 2014 and I’m trying to start the new year off with a brand new attitude. I recently read one of the blogs I follow, Lightning Droplets, which she’s taking part of the 500 Words Challenge for 31 Days presented by Jeff Goins over On Goins, Writer.  It’s similar to NaNoWriMo except no novel has to be written unless you want to. It’s more about being diligent in your writing. There’s no thought process In this; you just write. The minimum is 500 words a day. The max, whatever your heart desires.

I’ll admit I was hesitant in this commitment. I am a procrastinator. Yes, I admit it. Admitting is the first step of overcoming your shortfalls. And since I’ve decided to workout,  which started right after Thanksgiving, this is the next challenge. Plus, I need a kick in the butt to stop with the excuses and just sit down and write. I started yesterday and was able to write 576 words with this blog post and 4 poems. I will keep you up to date with my progress. Wish me luck and keep writing.

  1. You can do it if you set your mind to it. Yes, you can.

    You may want to try using affirmations to help change your beliefs. Repeat positive phrases to yourself each day.

    I may be writing a post on this – or a guest post – it hasn’t been decided, so watch for it in the next month.

    And no, by then it will not be too late – another month comes after this one, you know. 😉 And it’s never too late to achieve your dream. Or at least work toward it. 😀


  2. Aw, you got this, friend! Soon you’ll be busting out 500 words in ten minutes, and you’ll stop at 6,000 and think- piece of cake 😉 Love Jeff Goins, by the way. I went to a conference he did and it was awesome.
