That I am incredibly bad at this. I mean blogging, of course. I’m absolutely awful at it. I have no internal scheduling device, so it’s come to a ‘whenever-I-think-about-writing-about-writing’ scenario. If it pops into my head, I’ll jot a few things down to address, and then I’ll lose the paper and wind up where I am now.
I rock, really. It’s astounding. Back on task, though.
I’ve come to the conclusion that I absolutely canNOT get a damn thing done if I don’t have some sort of deadline imposed by SOMEONE, myself or otherwise. Blogging aside, I’d like to get a book published sometime in the near future, but in order to take on THAT adventure, I need to FINISH something in entirety. That seems unlikely with my ridiculous lack of discipline. Without anyone to give me a deadline, I need to do it myself, and doing that is made easier by documenting it publicly. That way, there’s teh off chance someone might be judging me if I fail because I’m lazy.
And I am lazy. No joke.
Seriously, though, start the drum roll! My self-imposed date of completion on my current work in progress is……
January 7, 2011! My 26th birthday! Imagine what a super cool present that would be to myself!
So, here I go, consuming coffee like there’s no tomorrow, and working my ever-widening behind off to crank out this very amazing work of steampunk fiction. Very amazing in my own opinion, anyway, and I do hold my own opinion in very high regard. =P
Wish me luck!
