FOr some reason, I still haven’t learned not to overbook myself. Or at least using what time I have wisely. I signed up for some book blog tours over at Overflowing Bookshelves, knowing that I was also doing NaNo this month. I already had my ROW80 goals to contend with but I decided at the last minute to add in NaBloPoMo…
Why do I keep doing this to myself. My blog tour was actually for the second book in a series, which meant I needed to read the first book, which I’ve been doing all day. When I could have taken the time to write, i.e. in the morning like I SAID I was going to start doing in yesterday’s blog post (hint, hint, if you can’t figure it out, I didn’t write this morning), or when I watched those two episodes of Eureka, I did other things.
So now I’m making myself log at least 30 minutes of writing. I’m already behind on my personal NaNo goal but I need to keep up the habit of writing everyday. Hell, the only reason I’m blogging today is because I got in the habit of posting everyday when I did NaBloPoMo last month on Quiet Contemplations. So I know it works. I have to blog everyday, even if I don’t want to, even if I’m tired. There’s no option not to blog.
And as much as I would just love to not open my WIP right now, it’s open and waiting for me to start writing. I’ll build this habit even if it kills me. I’ll try again tomorrow to write & blog in the morning so I can take the afternoon to watch TV, read, or do the boring side of blogging.
