Procrastination, again

Well, here I am, procrastinating again.

Oh, and welcome to my blog, all you new followers! I'm so excited to have more people to be connected to. It's quite thrilling.

OK. So, I am sitting here, on my couch, thinking about everything I should be doing.

*Writing this story about Yoga and Pilates, which is due tomorrow.
*Writing some Datebooks, probably by tomorrow.
*Clean house, organize, and unpack more things (I just moved. Well, not just), which is...um...a lifetime project.
*Practice to teach a new exercise class, which is starting, oh, tomorrow.
*OH! Shoot. I'm supposed to send out an email about Sunday School by today...so I should do that.

This is what I'm doing:

*Looking at my story about Yoga and Pilates, but not really working on it.
*Looking at some of my old short stories. But not doing anything with them.
*Watching Psych, Season 3. One of my favorite television shows.
*Thinking about everything I should be doing.
*Blogging! Ever so slightly. Oh, gosh, I wish we had some sort of writing challenge every week. I enjoy posting and reading scenes. And I've met so many people, now!

So. Yes. Good job. I am now procrastinating.

I better go write that email. Wow, what an exciting entry *this* was.

you know, we COULD have a writing challenge every week. You and I. It isn't out of the realm of possibility :)

Um--you are so right!

Maybe we could say every other week.

But we so should!

Oh, my goodness!

Hahaha.
I have a giant "Writer's Block" with prompts and stuff, or there's got to be an internet something that has prompts we could play with.

Maybe we could start a MOVEMENT.

Just Another Sarah said...

You are brilliant! I was trying to think of prompts. Maybe to start, we could think about genre?

Amalia T. said...

Are we limiting ourselves to a singular genre?

I've been doing a word of the day prompt thing-- we could write shorts based on a word of the day chosen by dictionary.com?

Just Another Sarah said...

Oh, no, not at all! That sounds fun. I just meant, we can try pushing past our usual genres to try other styles we wouldn't, normally. Tell me more about this word plan. :)

Dictionary.com has a word of the day-- so it already picks a random word. From that word we could then write like, I don't know a certain number of words dealing with that concept, or somehow utilizing that word in the scene. Maybe just 500 words or something?
