More writing, Less procrastinating

You know when you’ve been submerged into the world of the Wi-Fi when you have nothing accomplished with what books you have started and are just left there in limbo, waiting for you to get off you’re arse (or in this case to sit on it) and start writing to get your projects finished to be published.

And I’m bad at procrastinating. Especially when I’m so bored that I know what I should be doing, but end up either sitting in front of the TV watching something on NetFlix, or I’m just surfing around the internet wasting time.

In the end, nothing really gets accomplished, and you’re beating yourself up for not doing what you’ve been telling yourself what you need to do.

So why do I do it to myself?  Sucker for punishment I guess is the first thought that comes to mind.  The other is that I feel I’m not that successful as a writer.

Yes, I’ve had friends buy my book.  And yes they have given me good reviews on it, and for that I’m deeply grateful.  But they say that it’s that one bad review will hit you the most.  Even though I’ve had friends tell me that you’re gonna get that one person who’s going to be an a$$hole.  That I need to look past that one hater and see it as what you have succeeded at.

To write and tell a story as only I could tell it.

In the end, it’s me putting myself out there.  Something I’m not used to doing. Bringing attention to myself when I’m used to making people focus on real talented people.  I don’t think I’m there yet.

For one, I really suck at promoting myself. LOL!!  I was never the type of person to make people notice me.  I’m usually the one who would sit in the corner and be silent.

But if I’m to make it in this hard crazy world of being an author, I need to get my tooch in gear and seek out a publishing company and/or agent who would be willing to take a chance on me.  I have so many ideas, but it’s to stay focused and on course that I find lacking.

I have to give thanks to my family though.  They put up with my constant “one more minute” when writing my first book.  Now I will have to do it again to finish off the 2 books I have started already.  And I do need to get them done before I start any others.

I think what I might start doing is to write daily in here.  Just to keep me on track with my writing (and to keep me focused), because we all know by now how easily distracted I am. LOL!!

Anyway, in closing (which I surprise myself that I had this much to say in one sitting, lol), I want to say thank you to anyone who’s still following this blog.  When I haven’t made a post in a while, I forget how to get back on here. 😀

I think I fixed that problem.  For now.

Anyway,, until next time.

Much love

New Beginnings

Usually to start something new, or make a fresh start is done in January, right in the new year.  Well, my typical fresh starts start when the kids go back to school and I have to get back into the routine of getting up early, making lunches while having a cuppa tea, and checking Facebook, Twitter and my emails before getting kids up for the day.  Mind you, this year started off a tad rocky, but I’m hoping that come Monday, the start of a full week of school for them, will mean a full week of concentrating on things that I need to do for me.

Mind you, I will probably need the first couple of days setting up some sort of routine for myself.  I dispise housework. But I know that I have to do it.  And so I’ll drag my feet, and try and kick me arse up off the chair and get things done.  You never really know how fast time flies until you sit down with your tea, in front of the laptop, look down at the time — 8:15am,, then the next thing you know, the front door pops open and there’s one of your kids coming home again.

If you’re new to following me,, WELCOME!!  To those of you who have been with me for a long time,,, I’m soooooooooooo sorry, LOL.

I keep changing the look of this blog – mainly cause I can’t find one that SCREAMS at me.  So I’ll play around with the ones that’s available (which are usually the free ones).  And I keep saying that I’m going to write every day.  Well,, I’ve failed on that terribly.  That tends to happen a lot,,,, I figure if someone like Joe Mallozzi can do it,, so can I.  But then again,, something “shiny” will come across my mind and,,, well,,, you know the rest.

I’m also considering on posting some video blogs on here too, via my YouTube channel.  It might cut down the typing time of letting y’all know how my day is going,, has gone,, or if I’m still in zombie mode and haven’t had my cuppa tea yet. 🙂

So I’ll cut this short,, and just say that I HOPE to return again tomorrow (at some point) and either say something comical, deep, or meaningful.

Until next time,

K, xo
