A Bad Fu€king Word Called Laziness

It’s been awhile since I wrote blog.  I guess you could say I’ve been a little busy with the summer.  Although when a I had a few minutes to get on it, I embodied this catchy tune…

This has me pondering the term lazy.  Was I really being lazy this summer by not running myself ragged? By taking my moments of relaxation where I could get it?

beats-meYeah, I didn’t really see anything wrong with it.  I mean a person can spend all their time and be just where they were before without any upside.

There is a lot of TV shows out there that I needed to catch up on – DVR & Netflix, miracle or devil?  New movies to be seen, and we all know summer block busters are an important piece of our US economy and I needed to play my part in helping out.

Then the wake up call…

Like all wake up calls, it freaking hurt! I’m not kidden, sore muscles for days, literally. All because I hired a trainer to get my fat butt moving, but thats another story…

Okay so now I’m moving and grooving.  My book deadline, what happened to that? Oh right, I took my summer break so it’s time to get my arse in gear. (Yes, love that scottish accent now say it again, arse *shivers up my spine)

I’m revving up getting back into the saddle by writing my blog and attacking my book that has been ignored for way too long. I felt justified reading this summer in place of my writing because you can’t be a good writer if your not a reader!  If you disagree with that statement, your just lying to yourself, seriously.

So it’s debatable if my definition of being lazy was truly being lazy, or just a pause in gearing up for my knock it out of the park, last half of the year.  However, I did notice all the bloggers tend to slow it down a little for summer too so I would say I’m in the club.  The best advice comes from a fish…

Are you all ready to kick it in gear? What are you going to do to keep swimming and stay motivated?

Love to hear from you in the comments below – cuz hell, sometimes I need the advice too!! 🙂

 

Excuses Excuses Excuses…

I’ve been working on writing my 1st novel and with all my good intentions it hasn’t been so easy. There is the pressure that everyone knows I am writing that 1st book which in part was to motivate me along; however, some days I am one to rebel as other life issues pop up. You know the excuse that you must cook, clean, do laundry and work that day job. It’s tough to find time to write when your not a full time author. None the less this is how some of my days go…

So if the blog is a little slow with only 1 or maybe 2 posts a month, know that I am either making up some grandiose excuse or actually putting my words to the page to finish this story that has been in my head for 5 years. I am sure many of you don’t have this issue!

You’re a well oiled machine that is working on your story without any interruption each and every day. You don’t run into issues of self doubt or the occasional road block of not moving your story forward, because you have an outline that shows you how to navigate to the end. Actually you may not have all the answers, but that is okay because your brilliance is self satisfying and the menial tasks are the dry run to your red carpet walk. The vision is so strong that you bask in the light, knowing soon you’ll be wearing sunglasses just to be comfortable.

Does the above describe you? Just know that if it does – I hate you. I envy you. I need you to tell me how.

How do you keep going and rock the above? Is it just experience and time that has made you so wonderful? Is it just that fantastic support system you have?
