Don’t Fool Yourself or The Reasons I Didn’t Write Today

January 16, 2012

I’m too tired. I’m too busy. My toes are freezing so I need to walk around. I’d rather day dream about moving and spend an hour and half looking at apartments which I probably can’t afford. There’s a package! I’d better open it. Just a cook book. Ooh, that looks good …

I cannot write because it is too nice outside. I’d rather play Zelda or catch up on The Big Bang Theory. I already popped the popcorn and I can’t type when my hands are greasy.

I need to read this book. It’s due in a week at the library and I haven’t even started. Not to mention I need to take a shower, brush my hair and floss my teeth, pluck my eyebrows for the first time in two months and try on all my jeans just to make sure the skinny ones still don’t fit.

I just painted my nails. I’ll listen to some podcasts on writing while they dry. And then I’ve got to finish knitting those late late Christmas presents. Why do I even bother trying? I can’t possibly write today.

I can always write tomorrow. There will be more time tomorrow. There isn’t any time today.

**The irony? I wrote this because I was too tired to be creative enough on my current project but wanted to hit my 250 words per day.

    Hahaha “I can’t type with greasy fingers!” I use that one way too often! And I know your got more in you for today. Plus, if that’s not motivation for you, just think, the first Queen of Glass– whoops, now THRONE OF GLASS (squee!) novella will be out on the 31st!!! :D

    Love you!

    I think I’ll have to jump in on this 250 words per day thing. I haven’t been writing, but I haven’t been excusing it either. I have made conscious choices to code websites instead of write, mainly because this will probably be my way of providing for a family once school is finished. But, I’ve been frustrated that I haven’t written… and 250 words is small enough that I can code websites and still get my 250 a day.
