I’m writing this blog post at 8:30 pm on Sunday night (while watching the Golden Globes, of course), and it’s supposed to go live at midnight. Yes, I’ve had a super busy week, BUT there are plenty of times I could have written this post before now and chose not to.
In other words: Hi, I’m Colleen and I’m a Procrastinator.
This week on the Ball, we’re talking about the bad writing habits we want to break and the good writing habits we want to make this year. I’d love to break my habit of procrastination, but I’ve been doing it so long now, that I don’t even know where to begin. Also, I’ve convinced myself that my work is much better when I’m under pressure, which is most likely not true, but it’s a convenient excuse.
The habit I’d like to make is becoming an early morning writer. Especially because I’m adding twins to my brood this year (due in March) and I’ve heard they can be a little time-consuming. I think the wee hours of the morning may be the only time I have to myself to cry in the fetal position AND type on my computer.
What are the writing habits you want to make or break this year? Any early-morning writing tips?
