One was talking about "How to stop procrastinating about your writing" so I'm sure she's inside my head. The other was talking about "The secret to your next creative breakthrough" and I'm sure he could read my mind also when he writes about something having to give, to make a breakthrough possible.
Okay the reality is they have no idea who I am or what my little ol' blog has to say or even about my secret wish to be a writer and make a difference. But as is the case the universe is conspiring to kick my butt and make me do something other than just spout hot air about what I want to do.
The final poke from the universe was being woken by my son's alarm clock this morning (keeping in mind that today is a holiday for me and I didn't need to be awake at 6am - arrggghh) and then laying awake for an hour with a new storyline swirling through my head and preventing me from going back to sleep.
But.......I'm still procrastinating because this morning in the 2 hours I've been up, I've set up my Pinterest account, I've watched Eden from Edenland blogging fame on the Channel 10 morning show talking about her recent trip to Africa for Worldvision and now I'm writing this post. I am a hopeless case.
I'm not sure why this is the case. I can be determined and focussed on any goal I set when I want to be. Nine months of non-smoking or six years of university study are proof of that. Once I start writing it just flows and I wonder why I don't do more of it. Maybe I'm better at talking about it than actually doing it.
My first novel - yep it's still sitting in the drawer. Is it perhaps because I fear rejection of something that is really, really important to me? Probably.
The ideas are still swirling so I must write them down because they're so insistent. I will go and I will write - for today anyway.
What do you want so badly but keep skirting around actually doing?
This week I'm linking up with Erica at Yeah Write - I haven't linked up for the longest time, but decided it was about time - you can too by clicking on the image below.
