Procrastination

::Part of the WRITING SERIES::
There's this little land in which I live. It's a land that gets more and more residency each day that someone pushes something back, and it is so easy to fall into that one just does not want to do anything

I call this Procrastination-landia.

I've pretty much accepted the fact that I'll never do things in a timely manner. I'm trying to slowly learn now that I'm in college and I don't really feel like pulling my hair out or having panic attacks one hour before class starts, but that doesn't mean that I've completely beaten the habit.

And when it comes to writing, I am the worst criminal.

There's a reason why first drafts take me an eternity. It's not just because I don't want to write it, but because I don't feel like it. The characters are there, lingering, communicating and doing actions, and I make note of all of it and try to keep it all in one place. Yet, when it comes time to pull things together I just don't want. I don't know if it's because I'm losing interest or if there's something intrinsically wrong with my current work, but I always push it back as much as possible.

So, I'm learning to do things a little differently this time around. Now that I've gotten into Filofax - one of the best planners in the world, in my opinion - I've learned to budget my time (something that I'll get into in another post). I'm putting time aside to even BLOG! I also sometimes think that it's really easy for me to say, "From here until the end of the year I can finish so-and-so" and obviously that's not how it happens. Instead,

Procrastinating is easy, but it is not as fulfilling as getting everything done when it needs to be done.

And in other news, I am finally on Tumblr. I think I made one awhile ago, but I don't remember. So, if you would like, come on over to Fireflies and Shattered Ice.

I will write to you guys later on.
